BBL10: Big Bash, Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Renegades, news, live, stream, scores,

Brisbane Heat moved up to fifth on the Big Bash ladder after a five-wicket win over last-place Melbourne Renegades on Thursday night, despite a mid-innings collapse that had Brett Lee joking on Fox Cricket: “This could be the biggest comeback since Lazarus.”

Chasing the Renegades’ total of 6/149, Heat captain Chris Lynn was given three extra lives by poor Renegades fielding, but put his side under pressure by giving up his wicket for 50 off 39, batting extremely aggressively despite the chase being well under control – something which had Mark Waugh fuming.

But after a collapse of 4/12, Joe Burns guided the Heat to victory with an unbeaten 31*, having earlier taken a screamer in the first innings.
