• Renegades pip Hurricanes in last over

    Mohammad Nabi sealed a six-wicket win for the Melbourne Renegades by cracking a six in the final over off James Faulkner to cap a perfectly timed run chase in the Big Bash League on Monday evening.

    Sam Harper took the Player of the Match honours after taking two catches and scoring a vital 32 from 18 balls at the top of the Renegades order to get their run chase off to the perfect start. His teammate Kane Richardson took 3-38 as they restricted the Hurricanes to 145-5, with George Bailey scoring a superb 70 off 53 balls (6×4, 2×6).
