Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

Melbourne Renegades win by three wickets with one ball to spare and that means it’s Renegades v Stars for a Melbourne Derby BBL final. That was a terrific game of T20 cricket. Finished off the by one of the grand old me of the T20 game, Dan Christan. “The boys set it up really well,” says Christian, “didn’t leave it too far out of reach. If they miss their yorker hopefully I can get it over the fence. Best wicket we’ve had here all year.”

JImmy: “#vicsdoitbetter. If only the Derby final was at the MCG though.”

There’s a lot to unpack from that match. The Sixers raced out of the blocks before the Renegades fought back with the ball. The Renegades did well to always be around the rate needed, handy innings from Sam Harper, Cameron White and Tom Cooper before the grandstand finish (we’ll skim over Finch’s switch hit!). And then there was the umpiring!

John: “Excellent match, excellent coverage. Gnasher, I hope you’ll do the finals too!” I’ll be back John, no fear!

We’ll wrap things up there for now. I’m off for a lie down but will be back for the big one on Sunday (remember, it’s an afternoon game). Until then, it’s goodbye from Gnasher and thanks for joining us.

19.5 4 Dwarshuis to Richardson a full toss, hammered through the covers! Richardson hits the winning boundary. What a chase from the Renegades FOUR

Everyone inside the circle? Someone standing by the stumps for the return throw?

19.4 1 Dwarshuis to Christian good yorker, dug out to the covers and the hard yards make the single…scores are level 1 run

2 off 3 balls

19.3 1 Dwarshuis to Richardson gone with a direct hit, but the throw misses! Jabs a full ball to cover and they just run 1 run
19.2 4 Dwarshuis to Richardson KANE RICHARDSON!! Never mind giving Christian the strike, he wants to do it himself…drives a delivery with some width high over backward point. What a stroke. FOUR

Dot ball and Christian hasn’t got the strike…Arun VS: “Somebody said that this is a one sided game.I think that this is one of the best semi finals in BBL history” Aged well, didn’t it!

19.1 W Dwarshuis to Boyce hit wicket, this game has had it all! Angled into the pads from round the wicket, he swings to leg, is so far back in the crease that he’s stepped on his stumps OUT
CJ Boyce hit wicket b Dwarshuis 11 (10b 1×4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Seven needed off the last over. Can Dwarshuis pull off a miracle?

End of Over No.19 174/6 This Over (18 runs)

18.6 6 Abbott to Christian oh boy, what’s he done!! Carved high and might over the off side Christian has made a career out of this and he’s doing it again. A length ball outside off, he lofted it miles over deep cover SIX

Massive ball this. MASSIVE

18.5 1 Abbott to Boyce moves around the crease, ends up very deep, drives a low full toss to cover 1 run

Dave: “Seems like Jimit has conveniently forgotten the wide that should have been a wicket and the runs off the extra delivery.” 14 off 8

18.4 1 Abbott to Christian goes for the yorker, it’s a low full toss that’s heaved out to deep midwicket 1 run
18.3 2 Abbott to Christian full outside leg stump, chipped through midwicket, out to Jack Edwards in his new position…good hustle for the second 2 runs

Silk now at long-on

18.2 2 Abbott to Christian dropped at long-on by Jack Edwards! What drama! He does well to prevent the four. Christian went hard down the ground, didn’t get the full elevation he wanted. Edwards committed to the chat, it was a fingertip effort 2 runs
18.1 6 Abbott to Christian finds the gap wide of long-on! And it’s gone all the way A length ball, at the stumps, Christian swings over midwicket, Jack Edwards tries his best with a chase and dive but can’t get there SIX

Shane: “Dwarshuis, it’s up to him now, isn’t it? How has he done at the death generally?” Generally been Curran’s role (along with Abbott, who bowls now)…ball slips out of Abbott’s hand and is called dead ball

End of Over No.18 156/6 This Over (13 runs)

17.6 1 Dwarshuis to Christian a short ball, hits Christian, deflects to short third man 1 run
17.6 1 Dwarshuis to Christian that’s pressure! Full, down the leg side, a wide – extra ball and extra run 1 wide
17.5 6 Dwarshuis to Christian over the off side, what a stroke! He’s nailed this, full outside off, that’s struck over cover as sweetly as anything SIX

Jimit: “If Sixers win by less than 5 runs, the wicketkeeper movement no ball will turn into a full-fledged controversy!”

17.4 2 Dwarshuis to Christian back of a length from round the wicket, drilled back down the pitch with a pull and it cannons off the stumps into midwicket. Might have saved/cost two runs 2 runs
17.3 1 Dwarshuis to Boyce full outside off, clubbed strongly down to long-on but singles are fine for the Sixers 1 run
17.2 1 Dwarshuis to Christian a wide yorker, driven to cover on the edge of the circle 1 run
17.1 1 Dwarshuis to Boyce round the wicket, short of a length outside off, carved to deep cover 1 run

38 off three overs is gettable, but only four wickets in hand a problem. Dwarshuis returns

End of Over No.17 143/6 This Over (8 runs)

shailesh: “Very sorry. Newbie here. but who is Gnasher !! :)” It’s me (Andrew McGlashan)

16.6 1 MW Edwards to Boyce length outside off, that’s crunched but straight to deep cover 1 run
16.5 0 MW Edwards to Boyce yorker outside off, plays over the top of it no run
16.4 2 MW Edwards to Boyce hammered through the off side, length ball outside off, driven firmly and Vince does very well around the cover boundary. Huge divot comes out as he dives 2 runs
16.3 0 MW Edwards to Boyce short of a length outside off, another slower ball, swings and misses no run

Rob: “That shot sums up Finch’s summer: trainwreck.”

16.2 4 MW Edwards to Boyce full outside off, edge down to third man! Moving around the crease, flashes and gets a thick edge wide of the keeper FOUR
16.1 1 MW Edwards to Christian short outside off, dies off the surface, chopped to the covers. Was a slower delivery 1 run

Stephen Jones: “Renegades doing a fantastic job throwing this away.” Mickey Edwards for his last over

End of Over No.16 135/6 This Over (3 runs)

That’s O’Keefe done with the ball. Another impressive contribution from him in an outstanding season

15.6 1 O’Keefe to Christian pushes a length ball into the covers 1 run
15.5 1 O’Keefe to Boyce driven way from off stump to deep cover 1 run

Sixers the favourites now

15.4 W O’Keefe to Finch oh dear, Finch has tried to do a Maxwell! He’s gone for the switch hit over the off side, turns himself into a left hander, misses and is bowled OUT
AJ Finch b O’Keefe 44 (41b 4×4 0x6) SR: 107.31
15.3 0 O’Keefe to Finch angled into the pads, deflects close by. Another priceless dot no run
15.2 1 O’Keefe to Christian full, wide outside off, driven to deep cover 1 run
15.1 0 O’Keefe to Christian inside edge into the pads as he tries to work to leg no run

Christian is a superb finisher. Can he do it this time? O’Keefe is back
