Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars Playerzpot Prediction BBL 2019 Final Preview, Team News, Playing 11

Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars Playerzpot Prediction || Big Bash League Final

Melbourne Renegades will aim to make their first-ever tournament final a memorable one when they meet their crosstown rivals Melbourne Stars for the final derby in Docklands Stadium. The Renegades chased down 184 against the Sydney Sixers on Friday night with a ball to spare while Melbourne Stars paved their way to the finals by outplaying the Hobart Hurricanes in the first semi-final. For the Stars, Daniel Worrall returned 4 for 23 while Glenn Maxwell scored an unbeaten 43 for helping his team reach the finals. Daniel Christian hit 31 runs off 14 balls as Melbourne Renegades clinched a thriller by three wickets against Sydney Sixers in the second semifinal of the Big Bash League.

Both the teams have met twice in this season and Stars have managed to get the better of the Renegades on both the occasions but this is going to be their first ever meet in the BBL finals. None of these two have a BBL trophy in their cabinet and both of them would be eager to register their maiden win in the tournament.

Finch identifies Stoinis as a potential threat

Renegades skipper Aaron Finch has identified Stoinis as a threat and he also said that it was important to dismiss Stoinis early.

He is very hard to remove from the field once he gets going. Stoinis is someone who can play several styles and we have seen the last game where he took the back seat and helped his team to guide them to that total. He is also someone who steps up at crucial points.

Skipper Maxwell hopes for the best

“I think we gained our momentum at the correct time and I think that our game against Brisbane Heat taught us a lot. We have a great team and I hope we put up a great performance in the finals.”
