FOUR! Ben Dwarshuis to Kane Richardson. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Melbourne Renegades have held their nerve in a thrilling runchase to beat Sydney Sixers by three wickets and reach a BBL final for the first time in their history. They needed 38 off the final three overs and it was looking unlikely until Dan Christian took control of proceedings with a series of brutal strikes. The veteran kept his cool under serious pressure with a sublime 31 from 14 deliveries. The visitors will feel like they let this match slip from their grasp, especially after reaching 1-100 at the halfway point of the first innings. From that point Cameron Boyce shifted the momentum by removing the Sixers openers, and Sam Harper came out all guns blazing in the chase to get the hosts above the required rate. It was a fantastic match at Marvel Stadium tonight, the all Melbourne final on Sunday afternoon will no doubt provide just as much entertainment as well.

FOUR! Ben Dwarshuis to Kane Richardson. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. That's not quite come off the middle of the blade, Richardson doesn't care about that the result is all that matters. Crucial runs for the hosts, sensational scenes at Marvel Stadium.

OUT! Hit Wicket. Ben Dwarshuis to Cameron Boyce. Half volley, to leg moves in front flick, hit pad to mid wicket. Unbelievable scenes, Boyce has gone so deep in the crease that he's stepped on his stumps. He was just looking to nudge a single to get Christian back on strike but ended up in an awkward tangle. This game has had everything.

SIX! Sean Abbott to Daniel Christian. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Sheer muscle from Christian to drag this over wide long on. The fielder thought he was in with a chance but it was always soaring away from him. Perfect start to the over for the Renegades, Christian wants to be the hero.
