Next Matches:- Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars
This will be the second Melbourne Derby of this season as the first derby was won by the Stars by 7 wickets at MCG. But hoping for all the Australian players to return from national duty as both the regular skippers Finch and Maxwell might comeback facing each other.
Renegades are just 4 points behind the table toppers Hobart Hurricanes and will strive to continue to remain in the top 4 at the end of the league stage. Stars who are at the bottom of the table with 6 points will be in a do-die situation to win all of their remaining matches. Renegades have the chance of avenging their defeat at MCG so our Bbl match predictions say, Renegades will win the match.
