Impressive Renegades cruise to 5 wicket victory
The Melbourne Renegades made it two wins out of two thanks to an easy five wicket victory over the winless Sydney Thunder at Stadium Australia in Sydney.
In a low scorer affair the Renegades chased down the Thunders victory total of 117 with ten balls to spare thanks in part to Aaron Finch (31) and Ben Rohrer (27) who lead the way with the bat for the visitors.
It proved to be another disappointing day for the Thunder who dropped their second straight match after they were restricted to a total of just 116-7 with Aaron O’Brien (3-15) and Muttiah Muralithran (2-16) staring with the ball.
Chris Tremain offered so hope for the home side thanks to a quick fire 37 which came from just 23 deliveries and included two boundaries and three sixes to help the Thunder reach triple figures after slumping to just 60-7.
