The mighty hurricanes have finally gone toppled!
The Renegades registered their first victory in four games after a shock win against the Hurricanes, who have lost their first match since last year.
A batting masterclass from veteran George Bailey guided the hurricanes to the defendable total of 5-145 – his classy innings included six boundaries and two sixes.

Returns captain Aaron Finch top-scored with the bat, peeling off a steady 42 balls before Mohammad Nabi (26 * off 22 balls) and Dan Christian (25 * off 13 balls) guided the Renegades to a paramount victory.
22-year-old Sam Harper was awarded Player of the Match honors after his blistering 32 off 18 balls early in the Renegades run chase.

SHORT'S 'ELITE HONESTY' MOMENT
During a confusing sequence of events, an umpire distinctly changed his decision on the spot after D'Arcy Short start heading toward the changerooms.
A brutal bouncer from Usman Shinwari crashed into Short's bat, and the Pakistani paceman comfortably took the catch.
However, the umpire somehow missed the deflection off of the bat face, shaking his head to signify the batsman was not out.
While the Renegades players have been raised with arms, Short starts walking toward the boundary, spurring the umpire to quickly rectify his mistake.
SHINWARI'S COSTLY DROP
The Renegades were left to rue an early missed opportunity when George Bailey was dropped on 17th in the 8th over of the hurricanes' innings.
Attempting an ambitious sweep shot off leg-spinner Cameron Boyce, Bailey skied what was a simple catch to Usman Shinwari at short fine leg.
Unfortunately, Shinwari grassed the sitter, and Bailey went on to score 70 * with the bat, putting on 102 with Ben McDermott in a match-saving partnership.
Shinwari was the man of the match for his poor form of the ball, finishing with the economic figures of 1-24 from his four overs.
VETERAN'S MAGIC DIRECT HIT
At 36 years of age, South African-born Johan Botha was the oldest player from either side but still managed to pull off the fielding of the match.
Renegades captain Aaron Finch was cruising at 42 off 38 balls when he attempted a quick single off the bowling of Clive Rose in the 12th over of the innings.
However, Botha swooped in from point and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end, finding Finch an agonizing 5cm short of his ground.
It was a piece of magic that was completely replaced by the momentum, setting up an enthralling finish.
