Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades live, video, updates


The Melbourne Derby has not disappointed with the Melbourne Stars’ Marcus Stoinis bringing the fireworks to the match with a huge all-round performance in his side’s seven wicket win over the Melbourne Renegades.

Stoinis bagged two wickets before hitting four fours and four sixes in his 78 not out from 49 balls.

Stars captain Glenn Maxwell said the performance was an intimidating performance for future opponents with Stoinis hitting form.

“I’m really happy for Marcus Stoinis, he’s probably had a limited role so far in this year’s tournament,” Maxwell said.

“So for him to explode like he has tonight is pretty scary for the rest of the competition.”

The Fox Cricket commentators were even starstruck with Stoinis power with F1 superstar and childhood friend Daniel Ricciardo messaging Adam Gilchrist.

“One of his best mates is out in the middle at the moment Marcus Stoinis,” Gilchrist said.

“He said ‘can you talk Stoin up? I love him.’ I don’t need to when he bops them over the bowlers head.”

The trio continued to pander to the Aussie megastar with Shane Warne even asking for some tickets to the Monaco Grand Prix next year.

The performance was so good, Warne decided to talk him up anyway.

“If he can find that balance between aggression and defence, if he can find that balance and play smart, he will find himself playing for Australia,” Warne said.

The Renegades got off to an absolute flyer as the opener piled on 52 runs from the first five overs.

Stoinis himself went for 14 from the first five balls he bowled before taking the first wicket of Mackenzie Harvey.

From there, it was all the Stars.

Between overs five and 11, the Renegades lost 5/28 and the Renegades never recovered.

Some late hitting from Dan Christian and Beau Webster save the side from complete embarrassment as they limped to 9/148.

Three wickets from Dwayne Bravo and two each from Marcus Stoinis and Scott Boland, who was on a hat-trick, meant the Renegades were never able to get away.

Sandeep Lamichhane also stunned with a perfect ball through the gate of Tom Cooper.

It is the Nepalese phenomenon’s eighth wicket for the season.

In the break, Darren Lehmann said the total was “probably about 20 short, maybe even 30 short.”

It turns out he was right.

The Stars scored quickly throughout, led by Stoinis but with Ben Dunk (32 off 27) and Glenn Maxwell (33 off 22) able support.

“It was good to get some time to contribute to the team. I’ve had a few games where I haven’t done too much,” Stoinis said as man of the match.

For the Renegades, Cameron Boyce took 2/23, while Mohammad Nabi pulled off an exceptional run out.

The win means the Stars, Thunder, Strikers and Renegades are all with two wins and two losses for the season.

Stoinis’ Ricciardo support

Marcus Stoinis needed an innings to break out in BBL08 and given the chance to open, he didn’t disappoint.

The big hitting all-rounder hit 50 off 35 balls including two massive sixes.

While the Fox Cricket commentators were basking in the performance, they were even more complimentary when F1 superstar Daniel Ricciardo sent a text message to Adam Gilchrist.

“One of his best mates is out in the middle at the moment Marcus Stoinis,” he said.

“He said ‘can you talk Stoin up? I love him.’

“I don’t need to when he bops them over the bowlers head.”

The pair are school friends from Perth according to Gilchrist.

The response?

“You name-dropper,” Darren Lehmann said.

The trio continued to pander to the Aussie megastar with Shane Warne even asking for some tickets to the Monaco Grand Prix next year.

Lehmann added he’d like to meet Ricciardo one day.

A few overs later, Ricciardo responded saying he’d be happy to meet Lehmann, although Warne noticed the lack of mention about the Monaco tickets.

But Warne decided to talk him up anyway.

“If he can find that balance between aggression and defence, if he can find that balance and play smart, he will find himself playing for Australia,” Warne said.

Stunning fielding gets Renegades second

Mohammad Nabi produced an incredible piece of fielding on the move.

Boyce does the damage

Ben Dunk has been unlucky, getting stumped off a slow ball from Cameron Boyce.

Dunk was looking for a huge hit. He missed but he thought his foot was back.

Unfortunately for him, it was on the line and slick work from Sam Harper gave the Renegades their first sniff.

Shinwari’s thunderbolt

After a warm up ball of 136km/hr, Usman Shinwari fired down a 151km/hr thunderbolt.

“That’s lightning,” exclaimed Shane Warne.

Stars drag back Renegades

The Melbourne Renegades got away to an absolute flyer as the first side to get to 50 in the power play in BBL 08.

But the wicket of Mackenzie Harvey on the last ball of the fifth over sparked a stunning collapse.

The Renegades lost 4/28 in the next six overs to sit in a precarious position before some late hitting from Dan Christian and Beau Webster got the side to 9/148.

Wickets falling at regular intervals was difference and gave the Stars a decent target to aim at.

Three wickets from Dwayne Bravo and two each from Marcus Stoinis and Scott Boland, who was on a hat-trick, meant the Renegades were never able to get away.

Darren Lehmann said the start should have meant the side had a bigger total.

“That total was probably neither here nor there,” he said. “They probably had to take a risk to reach 160 or 170.

“They’ll probably feel about 20 short, maybe even 30 short.”

Stars swing match

The Melbourne Stars were under the pump early but a monumental swing has seen the Renegades under huge pressure.

Stoinis has 2/18 in his first two overs after starting the rot with the wicket of Mackenzie Harvey.

His first over went for 1/14.

Between overs five and 11, the Renegades lost 5/28.

It’s not pace or spin dominating but when Sandeep Lamichhane went through the gate of Tom Cooper, the momentum had well and truly shifted.

The Nepalese phenomenon added his eighth wicket for the season and teammate Ben Dunk said it could be the start of a shift in world cricket.

“Now that they have someone to follow, he hopes there’s be more and more,” he said. “We’ve seen the rise of the Afghani’s in Nabi and Rashid Khan and you speak to those two, they’re really hopefully of the next generation now that they’ve proven that they can perform on the world stage.

“Watch out world cricket I say.”

Fox Cricket commentator Shane Warne said Lamichhane had grown up watching YouTube videos of himself and players like Anil Kumble to develop his talent, which is becoming more and more prevalent.

Renegades off to a flyer

Renegades openers Mackenzie Harvey and Sam Harper have smashed their side into a great position in the first five overs of the Melbourne Derby.

The Stars had no answers to the onslaught with the pair bringing up 52 within the first five overs.

Despite no sixes, the pair scored at a rapid pace in the power play.

But 18-year-old Harvey was dismissed with the last ball of the fifth over for 21 off 15 balls.

He was soon followed by 22-year-old Harper for 30 off 16 balls.

The Stars have been able to wrestle back some control as at the eighth over, the Renegades lost their third wicket on 65 when Mohammad Nabi hit it straight up in the air.

Kiwi stars edges BBL best

Fast bowler Kyle Jamieson took 6/7 on Tuesday in New Zealand’s domestic SuperSmash competition to return the third-best bowling figures in the history of Twenty20 cricket.

The 24-year-old right-armed bowler achieved the best figures by a New Zealander in a T20 match while playing for Canterbury province against Auckland, which still managed to score 110.

Only Malaysia-born left-arm spinner Arul Suppiah, who took 6-5 for Somerset in 2011, and Pakistan’s Shakib Al Hasan, who took 6-6 for the Barbados Tridents in 2013, have had better returns.

In the BBL, Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga has also took 6/7 for the BBL’s best, while he surpassed countryman Ish Sodhi’s 6/11 for the Adelaide Strikers in 2017, which was the previous best by a New Zealander.

The previous best by a New Zealander was Ish Sodhi’s 6-11 for Adelaide Strikers in the BBL.

Jamieson’s victims included England import James Vince and New Zealand players Mark Chapman and Will Somerville.
