Sydney sixers vs Melbourne Renegades match highlights
The Sydney Sixers have defeated the Melbourne Renegades by six wickets. In front of a jam-packed crowd at GMHBA Stadium in Geelong.
Here are the big moments from the game which saw an electric crowd. A spinner continuing his good form, and young talent coming into his own. Let us look at Sydney sixers vs Melbourne Renegades match highlights in detail.
It was an impressive crowd the last time the Renegades were in Geelong. As it was a phenomenal game by the Side.
Over 12,300 people made their way down to GMHBA Stadium. The Festival of Sport and activations across the ground make it a fantastic atmosphere. With a capacity of nearly 19,000 at the ground, it was a magnificent turnout from the Geelong faithful, truly making this Gades Country during the cricket year.
Akeal Hosein hosting the Party from Renegade’s end
14 wickets for the year, equal first in the Golden Cap and the best economy rate in the BBL. Akeal Hosein has been a revelation this season.
The West Indian tweaker has often been the go-to for the Renegades at the start of the inning. But he’s shown his prowess in the middle overs too. There was no exception, as Hosein bowled superbly to pick up 2-24 across his four overs.
As the Renegades head into the New Year, the off-spinning sensation will be key to their final’s chances.
Whether it’s the Sheffield Shield, One Day Cup or BBL, Will Sutherland is making it a season to remember. While the young all-rounder has continually impressed in the Shield for Victoria, he has come into his own this year for the Renegades.
His 40 off 28 against the Hurricanes in Hobart was a highlight. Which came after two important roles supporting Aaron Finch near the back-end of games. Tonight, his exploits were with the ball. Taking 1-8 off three overs in what was an excellent display of death bowling – showcasing his talents with both bat and ball in hand.
Also, ‘Air Jordan stuns with an epic grab – and he wasn’t the only one in the Sixers’ big win
Veteran Shaun Marsh (35 off 29) was the top scorer for his side but lacked support and fell to a brilliant catch from “Air Jordan”-like import Chris Jordan in the 10th over.
