BBL STA Vs REN Highlights: Marcus Stoinis slams quickfire 43 as Melbourne Stars beat Melbourne Renegades by six wickets

BBL STA Vs REN Highlights: Marcus Stoinis slams quickfire 43 as Melbourne Stars beat Melbourne Renegades by six wickets-Glenn Maxwell’s Melbourne Stars lost the Bash Boost point but comfortably won the derby over Aaron Finch’s Melbourne Renegades at the MCG as an all-round bowling effort and forties from Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin took them to third on the BBL points table.

Sam Harper’s 63 for the Renegades went in vain as they collapsed from 78 for 1 in the tenth over to 150 all out in the first innings, allowing the Stars to make up for a slow start before they won with five balls to spare.
It was the Renegades’ ninth defeat in 11 games this season, and their chances of a spot in the finals seems a distant dream. The Stars are behind second-placed Sydney Thunder (also on 23 points) only on net run-rate although only four points separate the teams between No. 2 and No. 7.

STA Vs REN Dream11 Team Melbourne Stars Vs Melbourne Renegades Big Bash League 2020-21 Dream 11 Team Picks, Pitch Report, Probable Playing 11 And Match Overview, Just when it looked like Melbourne Renegades might finally be up for the fight, the club was quick to quell any lingering notions which might have sprung up in its ardent supporters minds.

Reverting to losing ways with a defeat to Brisbane Heat, the Renegades showed why they are sitting in the bottom of the league. The club was once again bleak, meek and timid, a side which folded out for a measly 149 runs to hand over Brisbane a straightforward win.

This is just the outfit the Stars will be wanting to come across as they look to consolidate their position in the much coveted top 4 spots.

At a time when the Renegades have been left famished for runs, Sam Harper has been a silver lining for the club with him consistently contributing for the club.


A massive reason for the Renegades being so lacklustre this term is due to the form of their captain Aaron Finch. He’s just not gotten going but despite that, we’ll still be sticking with him owing to his ability to crush the ball to the fence.

The Stars on the other hand will feature an entire trio of picks in this docket. We begin with the club’s match winner from the previous tie, Nic Maddison with him playing a luscious 48 run knock for the side.

Top order duo, Hilton Cartwright and Andre Fletcher will also be inducted in our team courtesy of their ability to open their arms and hit the ball in the middle.


Carrying off from the PIL, Marcus Stoinis is revelling in the shortest format of the game. Unlike the IPL, Glen Maxwell has settled into his stride nicely in the BBL to see both the all-rounders link up from the Stars for us.

The Renegades will on the other hand see us opt for Jack Prestwidge after he snagged 14 runs and took two scalps the last time around.

Bowling Order

Delivering one of the spells of the league as he ended up with a match winning five wicket haul, Adam Zampa ended up decimating the opposition.

He’s joined by Billy Stanlake whilst the opposition see us opt for new ball bowler, Kane Richardson owing to the deviations he gets on the ball in the opening period.
