The defending champions Melbourne Renegades remain winless even after playing three matches in 2019-20 as the Hobart Hurricanes thumped them to a 7-wicket defeat. Despite the efforts from Aaron Finch (50) and Shaun Marsh (37) at the top, the Renegades were bundled out for just 147 in 19.1 overs. They lost their last eight wickets in the space of six overs for 38 runs. D’Arcy Short (60) and skipper Ben McDermott (54*) sealed a win for the home team with the fifties after two players in top three bagged ducks.
