Today was the 11th match of the Big Bash League 2014-15. Today we have seen a different kind of match. Melbourne Renegades whitewashed Sydney Thunder. They bowled first and gave very few runs and picked up wickets. And then they finished the game in just 13.5 overs and won by 8 wickets. Here are the Hits and Flops of the match.

Hits of the Day

1. Daniel Hughes

Although Daniel Hughes came after 5 wickets were down and the team was in a miserable condition. The highest runs scored by the batsmen was 11 only. Daniel Hughes came to rescue after half of the innings was played. He managed to score 40 runs in the tough environment and raised his team total to 114 runs.

2. James Pattinson

James Pattinson took the most number of wickets today. He alone took down the top 3 opening batsman which was a huge setback for the batting team. Without his wickets the whole scenario would have been different. He took 3 wickets and gave away 24 runs in his 4 overs spell.

3. Aaron Finch

Aaron Finch, the skipper, took the game into his hands after the dismissal of Matthew Wade. He and Callum Ferguson took charge and scored runs at a fast pace. He scored 48 runs, just 2 runs short of a half century. He scored in 37 balls with a strike rate of 129.7. He hit 8 boundaries.

4. Jacques Kallis

Jacques Kallis didn’t impress with his batting but he surely impressed with his bowling. He gave the minimum runs. In 3 overs he gave only 13 runs with an economy of 4.3 which was the 2nd lowest today.


Flops of the Day                    

1. Michael Hussey

The opening batsman didn’t perform as expected. Although he started well but couldn’t carry it well. He scored only 10 runs which is bad for this format for an opening batsman. After his dismissal the team quickly fell down.

2. Nathan Rimmington

Nathan Rimmington was very expensive today. In just 3 overs he gave away 20 runs and picked up no wicket. His economy rate was 6.7. His teammates performed well so the overall effect was not too drastic.

3. Gurinder Sandhu

Gurinder Sandhu was the most expensive bowler today. He gave away 31 runs in his 4 overs spell with an economy rate of 7.8. His expensive bowling played some part in loss of his team.

4. Pat Cummins

Pat Cummins gave away the winning runs required by Melbourne Renegades. In just 2.5 overs he gave away 31 runs with and economy if 10.9. And he didn’t pick any wicket. In the last 5 balls he gave away 14 runs.
