Player Of The Match
17.5 - K Richardson to M Stoinis
Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. Melbourne Stars have coasted to victory by seven wickets at the MCG to take the local bragging rights against Melbourne Renegades. It was a difficult start for the men in green earlier on, but once they worked out the surface they bowled superbly to restrict Renegades to a below par 148/9. Marcus Stoinis took control of the runchase, blasting his way to a powerful unbeaten 78 in his new role as opener to seal the result with more than two overs remaining. So Melbourne is green on this New Year's Day, after a fantastic start to BBL08 in 2019 across both matches. We're back tomorrow with Sydney Thunder taking on Perth Scorchers at Spotless Stadium.
