Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars Tips

Marcus Stoinis has been the Melbourne Stars' most consistent batsman this season. He is tipped to score over 24.5 runs and be the Stars' best batsman against the Melbourne Renegades.

  • Melbourne Renegades have lost 9 of their last 11 matches.
  • Melbourne Renegades’s Sam Harper scored 63 in his last match.
  • Melbourne Stars have won 4 of their last 5 matches against the Melbourne Renegades.
  • Melbourne Stars’ Marcus Stoinis has scored 34+ runs in 4 of his last 5 matches.

Head to Head

The Melbourne Stars have won four of their last five matches against the Melbourne Renegades. Their last encounter took place just a few days ago with the Stars winning easily by six wickets.

Melbourne Renegades Form

The Melbourne Renegades season is all but over as they find themselves bottom of the table, 10 points behind seventh place. They have only managed two victories in their 11 matches thus far.

The Renegades last match was also against the Melbourne Stars where they batted first and scored 150 runs. Sam Harper top scored with 63 runs but as has been the problem all season, there just wasn’t enough support from others.

The bowlers fought hard to defend a below par total but the Stars got home with five balls to spare to win by six wickets. Kane Richardson was impressive, taking 2-24 in his four overs.

Renegades Team News

The Renegades issues this season have been in the batting department. They just have not managed to put enough runs on the board and changing that should be the prerogative.

Rilee Rossouw could come back into the middle order after being dropped for the last match. The key to their batting however remains Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch at the top of the order.

Melbourne Stars Form

The Melbourne Stars have been inconsistent this season after a flying start to the tournament. They currently hold third place on the BBL table and will see this as a must-win encounter.

Liam Hatcher was the pick of the bowlers in the Stars’ last match, taking 3-29 as they restricted the Renegades to 150 runs. In response Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin scored 43 runs each to steer the Stars a six wicket victory over their cross-town rivals.

The Stars remain among the favourites to claim the title but they will be weary of the threat the Renegades pose. 

Stars Team News

The Stars have a settled lineup at the moment and shouldn’t be changing too much. Their batting order changes all the time depending on situation but Nick Larkin seems to have made the No.3 berth his own.
