Melbourne Stars:

Melbourne Stars lost the last match and are at the 6th position on the Big Bash League points table with 10 points.

Joe Clarke has scored three consecutive fifties and is in great form and the new opener, Tom Rogers also batted well in the last game. At No.3, skipper Maxwell has been struggling a lot and the other batsmen along with Cartwright failed in the last game.

The bowlers have not performed to their full potential. Haris Rauf and Qais Ahmad picked up two wickets each in the last game and Brody Couch, Tom O Connell got one wicket each.

Stars will have to face tough situations unless the bowling unit performs well.

Melbourne Renegades:

Melbourne Renegades are at the last position on the Big Bash League points table with seven points. Their last match was washed off due to rain.

The batting unit has not performed well for Renegades this season. Finch did not play the early matches due to injury. Mackenzie Harvey played some brilliant knocks and Sam Harper contributed his share. The other batsmen like Jake Fraser and Nabi have struggled throughout the season.

Even the bowlers failed to tighten up the things at their end. Kane Richardson and Zahir Khan have been the only two bowlers who performed well this season.

Renegades are on the verge of getting eliminated from the race for playoffs.
