10.27pm This was the ninth meeting between these two sides, and the eighth victory for the Renegades. For the first 18 overs of this game the Thunder were utterly dominant, but that man Cameron Boyce played a sensational match-turning innings, an unbeaten 51 off 22, and suddenly the Renegades had a more than decent total to defend. Pretty disappointing chase from the Thunder, apart from their debutant keeper Baxter Holt, in batting conditions that actually seemed to have improved.

So the Renegades move up to 16 points, solidifying their bid for a semi-finals spot. They have just one league match to go now, against the table-topping Hobart Hurricanes. Lots of twists and turns left in this season, and we'll bring you all of them. Do keep tuning in. Until next time, good night!

Boyce to Fawad Ahmed, OUT, and, appropriately enough, he's the man to end it. Fawad steps out, and he fires it wide. Beats the desperate reach-out drive, and Harper does the rest

The Renegades made 39 off their last two overs. The Thunder now need 28 off their last over. Here's Boyce, appropriately enough

Gurney to Fawad Ahmed, 1 run, back of a length outside off. Looks to dab it behind point, only manages an inside edge into the leg side

Round the wicket to Fawad.

Gurney to Fawad Ahmed, 1 leg bye, slower ball, back of a length, looks for the lap-sweep and only manages to get his thigh pad on it. Rolls away into the backward square leg region
18.3
W
Gurney to Sandhu, OUT, slower length ball, leg-stumpish. Looks to flick, and only manages to edge into his pad. And that's followed by a collision and a run-out. Both batsmen were converging on the same side of the pitch, and Gurney was also moving in that direction to get to the ball. He manages to sneak between the two batsmen, and ends up unsighting both of them. They collide, leaving Cook sprawled on the pitch, and he picks up the ball and completes the run out at the keeper's end

Gurney to Cook, 1 run, slower ball, quite full, on off stump, swiped away through square leg
