Big Bash League: Sydney Thunder survive horror final over to claw past Melbourne Rengades

The Sydney Thunder have survived horror blunders and a dynamite over by young West Aussie debutant Corey Rocchiccioli to claw past the Melbourne Renegades by eight wickets at Manuka Oval, snapping a three-game losing streak.

The Thunder had the visitors on ice with Melbourne 8-116 with an over to bowl in the first innings, but a series of skill misses and brain fades allowed boundary fiend Will Sutherland to add 26 runs, setting a competitive 8-142.

David Warner and Matthew Gilkes were cruising at 0-57 before Rocchiccioli (2-25) stepped up, removing Warner and Oliver Davies in successive deliveries before a third chance was dropped, which ultimately cost Melbourne the game as Gilkes went on to steer his team to victory.

Sydney looked like taking the win at a canter before the WA offie turned the game on its head.
