Plunkett alone took away 4 of 5 wickets fell with no support from other bowlers whatsoever. Man he must be pissed at this loss.

Watson showed how second rate the current crop is.

Bancroft was good again.
Ash Turner 60 off 30 balls.

Result.
Sydney Sixers v Melbourne Renegades.

Melbourne Renegades 3 for 116 (Cooper 49, Harper 31, O'Keefe 2-23) beat Sydney Sixers 9 for 115 (Curran 44, Nabi 4-25, Richardson 3-26) by seven wickets
The Renegades dealt the Sixers a thrashing at the SCG, taking only 13 overs to coast past the home side's paltry total of 115.
Both sides arrived as part of the mid-table logjam with eight points each, and were met with a beautiful Sydney evening. On what appeared to be a flat pitch, the Renegades won the flip and elected to field. From there, they controlled the match from start to finish, seeing excellent contributions from Mohammad Nabi and Kane Richardson with the ball, while Tom Cooper and Sam Harper put the result beyond doubt with the bat.

The toss wins again.

wouldn't it be ironic that a thunder storm somewhere caused the blackout and cost the Thunder the match

why isn't Watto still playing for Australia?

Result.
Melbourne Stars v Melbourne Renegades.

Melbourne Stars 4 for 124 (Stoinis 70*, Richardson 2-17) beat Melbourne Renegades 121 (Nabi 28, Stoinis 3-19) by six wickets
A full-strength Melbourne Stars rolled Melbourne Renegades over for 121, and then relied on Marcus Stoinis to chase down the target with four balls to spare and continue their dominance of the Melbourne derby.
The Stars came into the match at the bottom of the table, but overcame their crosstown rivals to snap a three-game losing streak. After electing to bowl on a seemingly flat Marvel Stadium pitch, the Stars had an almost flawless performance in the field marked by disciplined bowling and spectacular catching.
Stars were energised by their slew of returning international players, most notably Stoinis, who guided his team home on a slowing surface with an unbeaten 70 after taking 3 for 19.

Stoinis played a Dhoni innings but Bravo belted the winning boundaries.

I think nobody on this forum seems to care about the big bash

maybe merge a thread for all things Australian cricket?
