10.02 pm Quite an underwhelming game at the end, wasn't it? A total of 111 was never going to worry the Renegades, who cruised to victory with 27 balls to spare. Aaron Finch regained some form at his home ground, while Cameron White's 44-ball 49 kept their score ticking along. Credit also to their bowlers: particularly Nabi, Hogg and Bravo, who strangled the Sixers in the first innings. Renegades will jump to third after this win, while the Sixers lose their fifth-straight game. Hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the 16th BBL game of the season. We'll see you tomorrow for more Big Bash action. For now, it's Sreshth Shah, saying good bye!
