So, with this win, Adelaide Strikers move to the top of the table with 7 points in the bag. This defeat will be pretty damning for the Melbourne Renegades as they have now lost all 4 of their games this season and sit rock bottom. BBL action continues on 30th December as Hobart Hurricanes host the Melbourne Stars. Join us on Monday, 1910 Local (0810 GMT). Until then, cheers and take care!

RASHID KHAN is the unanimous choice for the MAN OF THE MATCH award for his all-round performance. He starts by thanking the Almighty. Tells that he wanted to do well in all the three departments. Thanks the coach for sending him up the order. On the upcoming games, Rashid replies that all the matches are important and playing at home will be exciting. Feels that all the players are fulfilling their roles and doing it well and that's what makes things really good. Mentions that the boys are pumped up and want to take one game at a time. On the bizarre LBW decision which went against him, Rashid jokes and says that he started to celebrate and then Carey told him that the umpire has changed his decision at the last moment by scratching his nose, a funny moment that he will saviour.

Earlier in the evening, Adelaide Strikers' batting failed to get going at the death after a rollicking start provided by Philip Salt in the Powerplay. They managed a below-par total at this venue but then their bowlers turned up. Melbourne Renegades were not allowed to score freely in the first six overs but since the asking rate wasn't much, the pair of Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch combined to keep the touring team at bay. Once that partnership was dislodged, it all went pear-shaped for the Renegades and the likes of Wes Agar, Cameron Valente played crucial roles in it. Rashid Khan, of course, was the star for them as he played a major role in removing the danger men, Finch and Marsh.

Another excellent game of T20 and Adelaide Strikers have emerged victorious to keep their undefeated run going this season. Melbourne Renegades will be crestfallen at the moment. They were going on nicely at one stage when Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh were together for a partnership. But the wily leg spinner, Rashid Khan broke through the defense of SOS and then through an outstanding piece of fielding, the Afghan ran Finchy out. The 13th over turned out to be the game-turning one where three wickets fell and completely derailed the Renegades' run chase.

Cameron Valente to Kane Richardson

OUT! CAUGHT! Superb catch by Philip Salt in the deep and the ADELAIDE STRIKERS HAVE WON BY 18 RUNS! Full ball on middle and leg, Richardson hits it hard towards the long on region. The ball almost goes the distance but Philip Salt on the fence takes a superb catch, getting up on his toes and doing brilliantly to maintain his balance. He just about manages to stay on the field and complete the catch. Sums up the fielding efforts of the Strikers throughout the match and they will be very happy with it.

Very full ball on off, Richardson scoops it towards covers and the ball falls just short of Rashid who collects it on the bounce. Single taken.

Kane Richardson makes his way out.
