Renegades win WBBL thriller against 'Canes

Jess Duffin's 75 helped the Renegades to a four-wicket win over Hobart Hurricanes in the WBBL

A stunning masterclass from captain Jess Duffin has propelled Melbourne Renegades to a last-ball, four-wicket win over Hobart Hurricanes at CitiPower Centre in St Kilda.

With one required off the final delivery to reel in the Hurricanes' 5-150, Maitlan Brown calmly flicked Nicola Carey past square leg for the winning run, snapping the Renegades' three-game WBBL losing streak.

The home team was in huge trouble earlier in the chase when they slumped to 3-12 after Hobart spearhead Belinda Vakawera (2-21) had started with a wicket-maiden and proceeded to cut through the top order.

But the Hurricanes simply had no answer for Duffin.

With the asking rate ballooning, she single-handedly dragged the Renegades from a position of peril into one of dominance by carting the bowlers to all areas of the park.

She crunched 75 off just 49 balls, including four sixes, and was well supported by Courtney Webb (33) in a match-turning 78-run fifth-wicket union.

Earlier, a 92-run partnership between Hurricanes skipper Corinne Hall and England international Fran Wilson dragged the visitors to a respectable total after they had slipped to 4-40.

Hall, who had previously mustered only 25 runs at 6.25 for the tournament, blasted her way back to form with an unbeaten 50 off 34 balls while Wilson's 45 was a fine knock but it was not enough to stop the Hurricanes' winless streak extending to five matches.

Spinners Sophie Molineux (2-25) and Molly Strano (2-29) were the pick of the Renegades' bowlers before Duffin provided the heroics with the bat.
