'Is there only one match tomorrow?' asks Shawarma Sanchit. Seems like he is really excited with these double-headers. Give us a break, Sanchit. We will settle with the single-header for now. Friday, January 3, 2020 sees Hobart Hurricanes take on Brisbane Heat at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart at 7.10 pm local (0810 GMT). Do join us. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Up, up and away! Sorry. That belongs to Superman. But Sydney Sixers, after an indifferent start to the tournament, have moved nicely up the ladder to join Melbourne Stars at the top, albeit staying in second due to a lesser net run-rate. Renegades, sadly have lost 5 out of 5 now and their prospect of even making it to the playoffs, let alone defend their title, looks very, very bleak.

JAMES VINCE HAS BEEN ADJUDGED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Vince says that the wicket was not that easy to bat, hence he was wanting to give himself some time. Praises Jordan Silk for taking the pressure off him and also for finishing off the match. On winning games on the road, James says that it is a hat-trick for them and with two more away matches left, it would be great if they win both.

The Renegades tried their best with the ball. They kept hanging in there and when Andrews and Boyce struck with those wickets in the middle overs, they strangulated the Magenta Team. But they came undone by the magic of Vince and Silk. Ironically, Richardson did not go for runs but did not pick up wickets either. He normally picks wickets but goes for runs. Tom Andrews was the one who got the Renegades into the contest with two wickets.

James Vince was the one who set the tone, mixing caution with aggression which rubbed off on Jordan Silk as well. The duo took its time but eventually accelerated, finishing on a stand worth 57 from 39 balls. It got a bit tight towards the end but Silk loves these tight finishes, doesn't he?

Too close for comfort for the Sixers. 154 was a target which they would believe should have been chased down pretty comfortably and they set off nicely too. But some harakiri in the middle order set the cat free amongst the pigeons before a couple of calm and cool heads in James Vince and Jordan Silk saw them home.

1 19.5
Richard Gleeson to Tom Curran

SYDNEY SIXERS WIN! Full and outside off, Curran swings hard but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. The ball deflects towards short cover and the batsmen take a quick single. Nervy victory but they will take it.

1 19.4
Richard Gleeson to Jordan Silk

Full on middle, very nicely bowled, almost a yorker, Jordan works it through mid-wicket. Wants two but has to settle for the single.

6 19.3
Richard Gleeson to Jordan Silk

SIX! FETCH THAT! Has that sealed the game? A short ball, outside off, Silk latches onto it and pulls it ferociously over mid-wicket!

b 1 19.2
Richard Gleeson to Tom Curran

A BYE! Slower ball, outside off fuller in length, Curran swings hard but misses. They go for the bye and Sam Harper misses his under-arm shy at the striker's end. 8 needed from 4 now.
