Renegades vs Stars Tips, Preview & Prediction
The first Melbourne Derby was held on January 17 and saw the Melbourne Renegades bat first as they were bowled out for 150 off 19.5 overs. Sam Harper top scored for the Renegades with 63. Liam Hatcher picked up 3/29, Zahir Khan 2/23 and Billy Stanlake 2/28 with the Stars bowlers getting the job done.
In reply, the Stars finished up 4/153 to win by six wickets with five balls remaining. Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin both made 43. Kane Richardson led the way with 2/24 off four.
The Stars are starting to get their season back on track with back to back wins which sees them sit third on the BBL10 ladder. They have played 11 matches for five wins, five losses and a no result. The Renegades are last on the ladder with just two wins and nine losses.
This Renegades squad might go down as one of the worst to play the Big Bash League and the team has been bowled out five times this season which is an incredible stat for T20 cricket.
They will take some confidence that it was a narrow defeat on Sunday, but hard to see them playing well enough to beat the Stars on Wednesday.
Stars captain Glenn Maxwell picked up the all-important wicket of Aaron Finch for a duck in the first clash. He also took a catch in the field and scored 20. His all-round ability means he is always in the game and looks a good bet to score more than 40.5 Player Performance points.
Renegades spinner Peter Hatzoglou has picked up 13 wickets this season with best figures of 3/43. He has taken two wickets on four occasions this season and looks a good value bet to claim the most wickets for the Renegades.
