Follow us on Google News:

Melbourne Renegades paceman Tom Rogers has claimed a career-best four wickets to help restrict the Brisbane Heat to 8-137 in their BBL clash in Geelong.


After winning the toss and batting first, the Heat lost openers Max Bryant (five) and Colin Munro (eight) within three overs at GMHBA Stadium.

Matt Renshaw (29) and Sam Billings (25) steadied the innings with a 61-run partnership, guiding the visitors to 2-75 at the halfway point.

But both fell victim to the impressive Rogers (4-23) in the first over after the drinks break.

Left-arm orthodox spinner Akeal Hosein (3-26) also did damage with the ball as Brisbane staggered through the back half of their innings.

Heat captain Jimmy Peirson top-scored with 45 not out and copped a blow to the neck from a Rogers bouncer in the second-last over.

Peirson recovered to spearhead Brisbane's 29-run power surge to finish the innings.

But the Heat are still battling against the odds, having fallen well short of the average winning score at GMHBA Stadium (174).

Import spinners Hosein and Mujeeb Ur Rahman (1-18) removed the Heat openers and reduced the visitors to 2-14 before limiting them to 2-24 from the opening power play.

Renshaw and Billings fought back but to struggled to find the rope, with just four boundaries coming from the first 10 overs.

There were only eight fours - six from Peirson - and three sixes in total during a Heat innings that lacked the usual T20 fireworks until the final two overs.
