Commentator: Andrew McGlashan

Melbourne Renegades win by three wickets with one ball to spare and that means it's Renegades v Stars for a Melbourne Derby BBL final. That was a terrific game of T20 cricket. Finished off the by one of the grand old me of the T20 game, Dan Christan. "The boys set it up really well," says Christian, "didn't leave it too far out of reach. If they miss their yorker hopefully I can get it over the fence. Best wicket we've had here all year."

JImmy: "#vicsdoitbetter. If only the Derby final was at the MCG though."

There's a lot to unpack from that match. The Sixers raced out of the blocks before the Renegades fought back with the ball. The Renegades did well to always be around the rate needed, handy innings from Sam Harper, Cameron White and Tom Cooper before the grandstand finish (we'll skim over Finch's switch hit!). And then there was the umpiring!

John: "Excellent match, excellent coverage. Gnasher, I hope you'll do the finals too!" I'll be back John, no fear!

We'll wrap things up there for now. I'm off for a lie down but will be back for the big one on Sunday (remember, it's an afternoon game). Until then, it's goodbye from Gnasher and thanks for joining us.

Dwarshuis to Richardson, FOUR runs, a full toss, hammered through the covers! Richardson hits the winning boundary. What a chase from the Renegades

Everyone inside the circle? Someone standing by the stumps for the return throw?

Dwarshuis to Richardson, FOUR runs, KANE RICHARDSON!! Never mind giving Christian the strike, he wants to do it himself...drives a delivery with some width high over backward point. What a stroke.

Dot ball and Christian hasn't got the strike...Arun VS: "Somebody said that this is a one sided game.I think that this is one of the best semi finals in BBL history" Aged well, didn't it!

Dwarshuis to Boyce, OUT, hit wicket, this game has had it all! Angled into the pads from round the wicket, he swings to leg, is so far back in the crease that he's stepped on his stumps

CJ Boyce hit wicket b Dwarshuis 11 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Seven needed off the last over. Can Dwarshuis pull off a miracle?

END OF OVER:

Abbott to Christian, SIX runs, oh boy, what's he done!! Carved high and might over the off side Christian has made a career out of this and he's doing it again. A length ball outside off, he lofted it miles over deep cover
