Aus T20 League 2021-22

Match 48: STA vs REN


Stars are set to lock horns with Renegades in match 48 of the Aus T20 League 2021-22 at the Docklands, Marvel Stadium on Thursday. Both Renegades and Stars are tottering at the bottom half of the table. While the men in red are placed at sixth, Stars are just a rung below them at seventh. Brace yourself for a cracker of a contest as both teams will come hard at each other on derby day. 

Renegades, led by Maddinson, have struggled to find their feet in the tournament. They were humiliated in their last game against sixers. Batting first the defending champions piled up 150 runs on the board. The men in red in reply were bundled out for 105. Shaun Marsh 39 was the top scorer for them. Renegades will need to sort out their batting concerns before the big game. It has been a hit and miss season for them. And if they want to do well against the Stars, they should enter the field with a game plan. The veteran duo of Marsh and Finch will hold the key for their batting department. Harper and Harvey are other two batters who are expected to contribute with bat in hand. Richardson will shoulder the bowling responsibility for ‘The Gades’. Return of Prestwidge to the mix is also a positive sign for them. He alongside Kane will play a major role with the ball. 

Stars are currently in a state where they are beyond repair. COVID had worsened their condition and they were without the services of their premier ball striker and regular skipper Glen Maxwell. Recent report suggests that the explosive all rounder has fully recovered and is set to return for the big game. Maxwell’s homecoming will bolster the brittle batting lineup. He alongside Joe Clarke will be the main batters to watch out for. Nathan Coulter Nile who was out for the side due to a hamstring injury is now available for selection. He will lead the bowling prowess for Stars which has the likes of Brody Couch, Haris Rauf and Qais Ahmed. With both teams desperate for a victory, expect a scintillating tie.
