Hobart Hurricanes overcame the Melbourne Renegades and some fielding restriction drama to notch a breakthrough Big Bash League win. Matthew Wade’s 50-ball knock at Blundstone Arena got his side past Melbourne’s 5-183 with an over to spare and six wickets in the sheds. Wade shared a 140-run partnership with Mac Wright, who was a late inclusion for Ben McDermott. The veteran keeper’s worst DRS review in history didn’t hamper their overall performance. Hobart is now 1-2 from three games, while the Renegades are without a win from four matches. Thunder broke its duck with a five-wicket BBL victory over the Melbourne Stars thanks to a blistering allround performance from Beau Webster. The Thunder prevailed despite Webster’s outstanding batting and bowling performances in the match. The win moved the Thunder up to fifth, while the Stars remained last. Bowling to big players was a significant moment for Thunder, who delivered a death-blowing showdown to take the victory.
