A close game in the #BBL

The Hurricanes have defeated the Renegades by four runs in a #BBL game played on 21 January (link). The Hurricanes batted first and set the Renegades the rate of 19 runs per wicket to win the game.

This season in the BBL, there have been seven other occasions (in non-Duckworth-Lewis games) when a team has set a rate of 19 or more runs. All these games have been won by the team setting that rate. The Renegades are the team that has come closest to winning when batting second.

My ggplot of the game data:

This season in the BBL, the median winning score is 167 runs, and the median losing score is 146 runs. The median rate set is 17 runs per partnership.
