That's all from this game! Sydney Thunder put in a terrific performance to win their second game in a row. Melbourne Renegades will be disappointed with theri performance. We have a double header coming up on Friday, the 20th of December. First up is Hobart Hurricanes facing Sydney Sixers at 1315 Local (0345 GMT) followed by Brisbane Heat going up against Melbourne Stars. Until then, cheers.

ALEX HALES GETS PLAYER OF THE MATCH. He starts by saying that it's been a good start for the Thunder. Tells that the spinners did a brilliant job for them in the first innings. Mentions that Chris Morris will join the squad soon. Tells that he has been looking forward to coming matches.

Melbourne Renegades did not bowl well at all in the start. They were taken apart by Khawaja and Hales but the late wicket of Alex Hales triggered a collapse of some sort. They made a comeback in the last few overs bowling economically and picking up few wickets but in the end it was too late. But have to give credit to the fight shown by the Renegades.

A terrific chase from Thunder sees them get their second win on the trot. Even though, they lost a few wickets in the end but by that time the game was in their hands. They would have been very disappointed if they had not finished the game when they needed just 24 runs from the last four overs. Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales started brilliantly. Both got to their respective fifties and then Khawaja holed out. Hales though continued on his merry way and got them closer to the target. His wicket triggered a bit of a collapse. Gilkes run out in the final over put some nerves inside the dugout but Ross finished things off in style.

Richard Gleeson to Alex Ross

FOUR! Drilled down the ground and that is more than enough! Second win for the Thunder's in as many games. Full ball just outside off, Ross slams it past the bowler and into the long fence. SYDNEY THUNDER WIN BY SIX WICKETS.

W 19.3
Richard Gleeson to Matthew Gilkes

OUT! RUN OUT! Gilkes has to go and the Renegades will think they are in with a chance. Bouncer down the leg side, Gilkes goes for the pull but misses. The non-striker though takes off to steal the bye. Harper though is aware and he throws the ball back to the bowler quickly. Gleeson collects and hits the stumps with an underarm throw. The umpire takes it upstairs. Here comes the replay, Gilkes is short of the crease and he has to depart.

A run out appeal has been taken upstairs. Gilkes is the man in question. He looks out and Gilkes will have to go.

Richard Gleeson to Alex Ross

WIDE! Poor line! Not what Finch and Renegades need at this moment. Gleeson looks for the yorker but ends up spraying it down the leg side. Called wide.
