Player of the Match


That wraps up our coverage for the day. Be back tomorrow. Until then, it's goodbye!

Josh Lalor, Man of the match: Very comfortable win for us in the end. We got players who can chip in with many roles and we saw that today. Plenty of options and variety, just shows the depth we've got. Shaun Marsh made a tough run-chase look like a walk in the park. No rest, we will be back here tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully we get another win.

22:10 Local Time, 11:10 GMT, 16:40 IST: Took the Renegades 10 games to get their first win last season. And now they've started with one. It was set up by a clinical display with the ball as they restricted the Scorchers to just 130. There was swing upfront and the ball did a bit as well. Even the Scorchers found help early on in the chase. But the target wasn't enough. FInch and Marsh took their chances, rode their luck and once they got off to the start they did, it was hard to put a stop on the runs. Massive win in the end.

16.4 J Richardson to Fraser-McGurk, wide, and it finishes with a wide down leg. Dug in short by Richardson, Fraser-McGurk went after it but couldn't get anything. Didn't need to. The Renegades take this comprehensively

16.3 J Richardson to Fraser-McGurk, no run, yorker length outside off, Fraser-McGurk squeezes it to extra cover

Jake Fraser-McGurk, right handed bat, comes to the crease

16.2 J Richardson to Shaun Marsh, out Bowled!! Oh well, with one to get Marsh has been castled by Richardson. Full on leg, Marsh plays across the line of it and is probably rushed for pace. Bursts through the gap between bat and pad. Shaun Marsh b J Richardson 62(47) [4s-7 6s-1]
