Nabi was the match winner with 71 of 41 balls, while he appeared with Jake Fraser-McGurk in a decisive 68-run stand of 40 balls (not 29). The visitors (4/178) reached with a ball a goal from 178 rookie McGurk hit the winning runs after a full throw from Wes Agar

The Strikers’ innings stalled at 7/177 after a 5-32 collapse, the emphatic 200 the Strikers envisioned evaporated to give the Renegades hope to end a funk in seven losses

The Renegades took 21 of the last two overs and took 16 from the penultimate from Peter Siddle, with Nabi clearing the fence and finding the limit. The Renegades found the five Rus called for by the final in a shock victory for the basement dwellers

The Strikers remain in fourth place with 17 points ahead of Brisbane Head and Melbourne Stars

Adelaide’s top trio Phil Salt (59, 42), Alex Carey (42, 25) and Matt Renshaw (30, 23) dominated the Renegades, but could not land the knockout hit

Renegade skipper Aaron Finch, 14, was furious with an LBW verdict – his fourth consecutive failure – when he was convinced he hit the ball

The Renegades had dropped to 3-68 in the ninth game before Nabi launched a counterattack that spanned three consecutive boundaries from Siddle

Spun No3 Sam Harper, 18, the No1 T20 bowler Rashid Khan finished Nabi’s 42-run stand with Jack Prestwidge with a third straight falseun

Nabi and Rashid are inspirational Afghans who never leave anything in the tank. Nabi raced over 50 with a six from a Rashid wrong that few in world cricket could pick

Nabi’s attack was just the tonic for a Renegades team without leading runscorer Shaun Marsh and injured all-rounder Rilee Roussouw

Phil Salt was born in Wales, bred in Barbados and is now firing in Adelaide Keeping the critics at bay with a second half-century of the season in an effort to avoid a fourth straight single-digit score, Sussex Import Salt’s measured start gave way to confidence and acceleration before hitting the 16th floor switched to rookie Peter Hatzoglou

An opening salvo of 61 runs was a welcome substance show from Salt and Renshaw, who had teamed up for booths of two and 14 since Jake Weatherald was successfully placed in the middle order, Renshaw would leave a rue and a seasonally changing punch in the middle leave

Salt and Renshaw were embroiled in an explosive confrontation with Kane Richardson during Adelaide’s win on Tuesday night. It was Salt who took the bat back

The PowerSurge was an overwhelming addition this season, but it suddenly gained momentum, albeit for the wrong reason

Carey had at the beginning of the 14th signaled to take over the PowerSurge but the umpire forgot or didn’t hear the striker’s skipper’s request Carey hit the first ball from Richardson for six with the field in, but the umpire had not signaled the surge

The Strikers might have been eligible to restart the PowerSurge next time, but Carey kindly asked the Surge to leave the 14th to count, and appeased a disgruntled Renegades skipper Aaron Finch

Carey’s honor would be rewarded with 25 runs from the over, including sixes over a deep, square leg and long, while Spearhead Richardson’s (1-40) tough hometown return continued
