Melbourne Stars v Melbourne Renegades

6.40 pm The news from the middle is that the Stars have won the bat flip and will bat first.

Stars XI: 1 Justin Avendano, 2 Travis Dean, 3 Charlie Wakim, 4 Glenn Maxwell (capt.), 5 Hilton Cartwright, 6 Patrick Rowe (wk), 7 Tom O’Connell, 8 Qais Ahmad, 9 Brody Couch, 10 Ahmad Daniyal, 11 Haris Rauf.

The Stars squad has been further depleted by Covid with Joe Clarke and Tom Rogers testing positive, but they’re soldiering on under the leadership of The Big Show, Glenn Maxwell.
