The Renegades take on the Stars in a Melbourne derby at Docklands Stadium on Saturday evening in Match 41 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League. The Renegades enter this game in fifth place, having collected 10 points from ten games. The Stars trail by four points after the same number of matches. At 19:00 local time, the game begins in Melbourne.

Melbourne Renegades fell to fifth place after their loss on Tuesday, although they are still tied on points with the team in third place. They have had a successful season and have powerful bat and ball players who can win this game for them.

The Melbourne Stars’ victory over the Adelaide Strikers was both spectacular and unexpected. If they are to prevent the Renegades from performing the double over them, they must perform at the same high level in this derby.
