Renegades thump Brisbane Heat

Renegades, Six Sports

Renegades notched up another win in their kitty on the backs of veteran Shaun Marsh and national captain Aaron Finch to seal a five-wicket victory over a COVID-depleted Brisbane Heat.

Marsh played a brilliant knock of 57 from 35 balls, that contained three sixes and half-a-dozen boundaries and added 96 runs for the second wicket with Aaron Finch (37 off 28) and reached the target with 30 balls to spare.

The only player from Brisbane Heat who made an impact was Darren Lehmann’s son, Jake Lehmann.

He made the most of his return to the BBL after two years as he made 65 and was opening the batting for his team after Renegades sent Heat in to bat.

Brisbane Heat is the latest club to get affected by COVID-19 with 12 players and coach Wade Seccombe sidelined after being afflicted with the virus.

No other Brisbane players managed to score more than 15 runs as Renegades bowlers Kane Richardson, Zahir Khan, and Mohammad Nabi took two wickets apiece.

Nabi gave only two runs in the final over and thus secured the game nicely.

Renegades lost their opener, Sam Harper, in the very first over and he was bowled by David Grant, who is also a part of the Strikers squad and he picked up 3-20 from his four overs.
