Melbourne Stars:

Melbourne Stars are having a good time as they are currently at the 1st position on the points table with 4 wins and a loss and a total of 8 points.

Haris Rauf once again bowled brilliantly and picked up 3 wickets for 24 runs in his 4 overs. Maxwell picked up 2 wickets, Adam Zampa and Clint Hinchliffe picked up 1 wicket each. 

With 143 to chase and with the batting line up of Stars, it looked like an easy chase. They lost the wicket of Nic Maddinson for a duck in the 1st over. But Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin batted beautifully and scored 58 and 65 runs respectively and made a partnership of 123 runs for the 2nd wicket. But in the death overs Stars lost 5 wickets for just 19 runs. In the final over they somehow managed to chase the target and won the match by 3 wickets. They would be high on confidence after becoming the table toppers and they would want to continue their winning momentum against the Melbourne Renegades.

Melbourne Renegades:

The defending champions are just facing disappointment after disappointment in every match from the start of the season and they are yet to win a match. They are currently at the bottom of the points table with zero points. In the last match, batting first Renegades lost the wicket of Aaron Finch for 9 runs early in the innings but Sam Harper’s 45 runs and Shaun Marsh’s 40 runs steadied the innings. Both the set batsmen after a while got out in quick session and Renegades were in trouble again. Daniel Christian scored 32 runs from just 17 balls and help Renegades to post a total of 153 runs in 20 overs.

With 153 runs to defend, Bowlers couldn’t restrict the runs early in the innings and gave away 70 runs in 9 overs. But after that, they picked up 3 wickets for just 10 runs and looked like they were back in the match. But the opposition batted sensibly and did not lose any wickets and chased the target with 2 balls remaining and thus Renegades had to face the loss by 6 wickets. Cameron Boyce and Tom Andrews picked up 2 wickets each. No other bowler was able to pick up wickets. They would be desperate to end their losing streak and have a win to their name in this season by winning against the Melbourne Stars.
