Strikers thump Renegades, jump to third

  Strikers thump Renegades, jump to third The Strikers were clinical with the bat and lethal with the ball, keeping their BBL finals hopes in tact and extending the Renegades' woes. Set 174 for victory on Sunday, the Renegades slumped to 2-10 early and never recovered, rolled for 110 in 17.4 overs against a disciplined, economical Strikers attack spearheaded by veteran seamer Peter Siddle (3-14) and spin pair Rashid Khan (2-19) and Travis Head (2-26).

Harper 's head knock completed a miserable night for the Renegades . Veteran batsman Shaun Marsh tweaked a hamstring, just as he had his side well positioned to chase down the 191 required for victory. The Renegades lost by four runs and appear set to finish the season in bottom place, a dramatic slide

Harper underwent scans which did not identify any bleeding or bone damage, but would remain in hospital overnight for observation. An extended lunch break was taken after the injury. It is the second time this summer a wicketkeeper has been struck by a bat, after the Melbourne Renegades ’

Melbourne Renegades wicketkeeper Sam Harper is undergoing tests in hospital after suffering a concussion during a freak incident in a BBL game.

The 23-year-old collided heavily while batting and became the first player subbed out of a BBL match - replaced by Tom Cooper - during the Renegades' four-run loss to Hobart on Tuesday night.

  Seeing red: What's gone wrong with the Melbourne Renegades Now that hopes of back-to-back titles are over, the Melbourne Renegades will have some tough questions to answer if their season goes from bad to worse.Where McDonald would comment the Sheffield Shield and Test cricket required, at times, a grinding mindset, he wanted the BBL to be the "fun" part of the summer for his players. They would train hard but then relax away from the field, heading to the golf course when possible.

Australian wicketkeeper Sam Harper is taken to hospital overnight after being struck on the head by a bat during a Sheffield Shield match. In January, Melbourne Renegades wicketkeeper Peter Nevill was ruled out of the Big Bash tournament after he suffered a burst blood vessel when he was hit by a

After Harper left the field in the fourth over, Shaun Marsh attempted to lift the Renegades to their third straight win with some power hitting. But hampered by a suspected hamstring injury, Marsh’s third half-century of the BBL season ended on 56 with one slog too many as he tried to avoid quick singles.

Harper, who suffered a serious concussion during a Sheffield Shield game in 2017, was assessed after toppling over Hurricanes bowler Nathan Ellis when attempting to complete a run.

"I've never seen a concussion in a cricket game like that, where it's more football or rugby when someone gets taken out from underneath," Renegades coach Michael Klinger told reporters.

"It's no one's fault, but you don't like to see anyone getting hurt. He didn't look that bad when he came off the field so hopefully he'll be okay.

"I think the medical guys made the right call, with him not passing that initial test."

Ellis, who went on to bowl the final over as the Hurricanes hung on in a thriller, said it was strange how the incident unfolded.

"I hope he's okay, you never want to see that on the field," Ellis said.

"At first he stayed down and clutched his head and he was a bit wobbly legs, but after the doctor and umpire spoke to him he seemed okay.

"Hopefully I'll go and talk to him after this."

Harper was keeping up to the stumps for Victoria in February 2017 when the bat of Jake Lehmann smashed in to the side of his head.

The incident left him in serious pain for an extended period, but he returned the following season.

Harper wasn't the only Renegade to be injured against the Hurricanes, with veteran opener Shaun Marsh pulling his hamstring.

Marsh, who has the second-most runs this season behind Marcus Stoinis, will likely miss the Renegades' remaining two matches.

But captain Aaron Finch and star bowler Kane Richardson will return to the line-up for the Renegades' next game against the Sydney Sixers at the SCG on Saturday night.
