Cameron Boyce was the pick of the bowlers for the Renegades as he finished his spell of four overs with figures of four for 15. Boyce also got rid of AB de Villiers, who was cleaned up by the leg-spinner for two.
Renegades' captain Daniel Christian and Samit Patel also chipped in with two wickets each as they registered their second win of the tournament.
