Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars – Match Preview

It is the Stars that have a much better head-to-head record in these meetings having won 11 matches in the last 14.

This is the second meeting between the teams in BBL 10 after the Stars secured the points at the MCG at the weekend.

Where: Docklands Cricket Ground, Melbourne

When: Wednesday, 20 January 2021

Start time: 02:45 IST (08:15 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The pitch at Docklands tends to be an even surface with something on offer for both batsmen and bowlers. Bounce and movement should be on display and batting first should be easier. The pitch has slowed recently and a total above 165 is competitive.

Weather conditions: It will be a dry day in Melbourne and a full match is expected. There is some cloud cover but rain is unlikely. Temperatures will be around the 20-degree mark.

Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars – Team News

  • Shaun Marsh – The Renegades have struggled this season but Shaun Marsh has been their main hope with the bat. He will need to fire again if they are to upset their rivals.
  • Sam Harper – While he has been inconsistent at times, Harper is another who has shown glimpses with the bat. He top-scored with 63 in the last match to take his season total to 236.
  • Liam Hatcher – Took three wickets against the Renegades in the last meeting at the MCG and will e keen on that returning to Docklands.
  • Adam Zampa – The leg-spinner has been a real threat for the Stars this tournament. He is currently second in the leading wicket-taker charts with 18 in nine matches.
  • Marcus Stoinis – The powerful Stars man continues to work his way up the top run-scorer table. He now has 333 in 10 matches after his quick-fire 43 against the Renegades at the weekend.

Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars – Betting Tips and Prediction

The Stars will be looking for back-to-back derby wins to take them a step closer to the BBL play-offs.

More batting woes were evident for the Renegades last time out and it is going to be difficult for them to hit back against a Stars team in confident mood.

The Stars’ price to get the outright win isn’t appealing from a betting point of view, so looking at other markets looks the best way to find value.

Back Richardson for Top Bowler

Kane Richardson has been the standout bowler for the Renegades so far.

He now has 15 in 11 matches after bagging another two in the previous meeting between these city rivals.

He hasn’t had much competition from his fellow bowlers this tournament except for Pete Hatzoglou who has 13.

Richardson looks a good bet to be the Renegades’ top bowler and his price of 3.25 with LeoVegas is appealing and offers some value.

Stoinis to Shine for the Stars

Marcus Stoinis might have taken a while to get going in BBL 10, but he is certainly back at his best now.

He has fallen short of a few half-centuries recently but has still looked in impressive form. He hit 43 in the last meeting between these sides and can go bigger here against a bowling attack that looks too lightweight.

Stoinis can be backed at 3.0 with bet365 to be the top run-scorer for the Stars.

Stars to Hit the Most Sixes

We like the look of backing the Melbourne Stars to hit the most sixes in the match.

While the pitch at Docklands is slower than it used to be, there should be plenty of pace and bounce off the surface for the batsman to take advantage of.

With the likes of Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell in their ranks, the Stars look a good bet to win blast the most maximums.

They can be backed at 1.77 with bet365 to do just that.
