The Melbourne Renegades climbed to fifth on the ladder when beating the Brisbane Heat by five wickets in the Big Bash League on Thursday night.
The Renegades are priced at 16/1 to win BBL11 and gave their chances of playing finals a boost with the comprehensive victory in Geelong.
Melbourne were the hot fancies to win the match against a Heat side who were missing a host of players through sickness and handed debuts to eight players.
One such player was Jake Lehmann, son of stand-in coach Darren Lehmann, and he only arrived in Geelong two hours before the start of the match after answering a late SOS.
He went on to register his highest ever score in the BBL when smashing 65 runs as the Heat managed to scramble to 6-128 off their 20 overs.
Lehmann was delighted to be back playing in the BBL for the first time in nearly three years after leaving the Adelaide Strikers.
"Twenty four hours ago, if you told me I'd be opening the batting in Geelong, I'd be laughing at you," Lehmann said. "I've always wanted to get back into the Big Bash and I guess the pandemic has given me that opportunity.
"It didn't end the way I liked at the Strikers. I always felt like I had more to give. Hopefully, I can do that at the Heat, for the next couple of games anyway."
Shaun Marsh smashed 57 runs from 35 deliveries as the Renegades made light work of the total with five overs to spare but the batsman did have some sympathy for the opposition.
"You certainly feel for the Brisbane Heat, they competed really well," Marsh said.
