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.

Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Wildermuth.
16.5 - C Boyce to G Maxwell
Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, missed to wicketkeeper, by Harper. Oh my, that is a gorgeous delivery from Boyce to leave Maxwell stranded out of his crease. It dips and turns past the edge with the batsman looking to clip to leg, and Harper does the rest for his second stumping of the night. A moment of magic from the leggie but it looks like it won't be enough for the Renegades.
