The defending champions are having a tough time this season. They have played 3 matches and have lost all the 3 games and are currently at the bottom of the points table. In the last match, batting first, Renegades lost the early wicket of Sam Harper for a duck in the 1st over. But Aaron Finch’s 50 and Shaun Marsh’s 37 runs steadied the innings.

With 147 runs to defend, it was a tough task for the bowlers ahead.

The bowlers did an excellent job of picking early wickets in the match and did not let the opponents score freely. But at one point, Maxwell looked dangerous and was smashing the bowlers.

Peter Siddle picked up 3 wickets and Wes Agar, Rashid Khan, Cameron Valente picked up 1 wicket each.
