19th Over
That is all from the Big Bash tonight, goodbye for now!
Muttiah Muralitharan picks up the man of the match award for his outstanding bowling performance of 3/18 off 4 overs.
Adelaide never looked in the game from ball one with poor fielding which was backed up by an inconsistant batting display. Renegades now take top spot with this clinical win.
With the bat Rohrer (35) and Cooper (59) were the stand outs to get them to 155, while Murali and Samuels were the standouts with 3 wickets each.
What a clinical display from Melbourne today, a complete team performance with both bat and ball.
