Melbourne Renegades 3 for 165 (White 79*, Harris 50, Archer 2-17) beat Hobart Hurricanes 8 for 164 (McDermott 34, Short 34, Bravo 5-28) by 7 wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
The Melbourne Renegades recruited spree-turned heads during the off-season but it was some familiar faces that orchestrated a comprehensive first-up win over the Hobart Hurricanes. Dwayne Bravo became the first man to 400 T20 wickets and showed how valuable a commodity he is with his second five-wicket haul in T20 cricket to restrict the Hurricanes to a sub-par 164. Then Cameron White wound back the clock with a vintage unbeaten 79 to guide his side home with nine balls to spare. He was ably supported by Marcus Harris (50 off 34) and Renegade-turned-Striker-turned-Renegade Brad Hodge (22* off 14).
