The second round of Melbourne derby is here as Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades lock horns for the second time in space of three days at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Renegades registered a thrilling 1-wicket win over their rivals on Saturday (December 29). Both the Melbourne-based sides have had a mixed bag of results so far in the competition, although there is much to play for with six games still remaining to vie for the playoff spots.
Melbourne Renegades have managed to come out on top of their counterparts on only three occasions in the eight outings so far in the competition while Melbourne Stars have in the bag one more win than the former. Can Renegades double their lead against the rivals or will it be payback for the Stars?
