Early celebrations from Melbourne wicket keeper Emma Inglis nearly cost her side the win as she gave Sydney a chance to steal a second run and force a super over. The stolen second run meant the match betwee Sixers and the Renegades ended in a tie.

Renegades bowler Amy Satterthwaite's delivery to Sarah Aley, hit the inside edge and went to fine leg. The fielder in the deep threw the ball back to the keeper accurately, but Inglis in her moment of excitement began celebrating while the ball was still in play, allowing the Sixers to steal another run to tie the match. 

However, Sixers couldn't make the opportunity count, as they lost the game in super over. Sixers lost two wickets and could score only 8 runs in the super over; while Renegades started with a boundary and wont the game off the last ball of their super over.
