Match Summary-

Melbourne Renegades win by 6 wickets.

Aaron Finch 63* (54) | Fawad Ahmed 3/17 (4.0)
Alex Carey 65 (47) | Peter Siddle 1/24 (3.2)

The Renegades have qualified and they are up on the 3rd position. The Strikers bow out of the tournament as they will remain at 6th no matter what happens tomorrow. 

Finch has got his team over the line with a brilliant half century. He and Critchley rescued them from a score of 16/3 in the 3rd over. They got a partnership of 69 runs. Critchley was hitting the ball well, but an unfortunate run out cost him his wicket.

Wells then joined his captain and made sure they chased it down easily. They kept the power surge right till the end and with 24 required off 3 overs they used the surge and Finch hit 2 fours and a six in that over. They got ahead of the chase and Wells finished it with 2 boundaries. 

Short, Agar and Siddle took a wicket in their first overs as we started out with a lot of chaos in the first 3 overs. After that the calm of Finch took the game away from the Strikers.
