What a clinical performance this has been from the Sydney Sixers! They played every bit like the defending champions. Unfortunately for the Renegades, they too played every bit like the wooden spoon holders. It was as complete a performance as it gets for the Syndey Sixers as they've handed the Melbourne Renegades a crushing 145-run defeat.

The game was first setup by the batsman for the Sixers as they managed to post a monumental total of 205 runs. All the limelight was on Josh Philippe in that innings as he top scored with a majestic 95. He was well aided by Jordan Silk who scored a blitzkrieg 45 from just 19 balls to take the Sixers' total past the 200 mark.

As if that battering was not enough for the Renegades, they suffered an even poorer performance with the bat as they were bowled out for a measly 60 - the lowest total in BBL history! They never looked like they were in the chase as they kept losing wickets left-right and center.

Ben Dwarshius was the pick of the bowlers for the Sixers as he picked up an impressive 4-13 (2.4 overs). Steve O'Keefe was excellent too and he recorded figures of 3-16 (3 overs). All in all, the Sixers could not have asked for a better performance. Their confidence would have taken a big boost after a game like that. For the Renegades on the other hand, its a game they'll want to forget as quickly as possible.

Josh Philippe is the Man of the Match

"It was a wonderful team effort. Learnt at lot during my time at the IPL with guys like Finchy and AB de Villiers. It always feels nice to get a good win like this on the board." - Josh Philippe
