Innings break Not a bad effort from the Renegades after a horror start. Aaron Finch was outstanding with a return to form. He took his time but his balance and timing was supreme. Cam White looked in good touch too. But the Thunder's death bowlers really curtailed them. 152 is competitive at Spotless. The teams batting first have won the last seven matches. Can the Renegades make it eight?

Jordan to Harvey, OUT, Run Out! Confusion between the batsmen. Harvey stepped inside the line to paddle sweep fine, he missed, it just missed leg stump. Richardson ran for a bye but Harvey wasn't paying attention, they end up next to each other, Lenton throws it Jordan and Harvey is run out by a mile.

There was a little inside edge. One run given

EMAN: "While on the other hand, this years BPL is so up and down. one match ya see is a high scoring game and the other you see is one sided low scoring game." Some of the pitches in the BPL, like the BBL, have been poor.

James: "Such slow scoring this year! The comp (and T20 in general) is in desperate need of changes to reinvigorate. New rule: all players except the keeper MUST bowl 2 overs each!" I don't know about that. But Dan Brettig reports schedule changes are afoot.
