It is the contest between two teams which finished the season last time around. Melbourne Renegades won the title by a whisker taking out Melbourne Stars in the finals of the tournament. It was a very close match but Aaron Finch led side claimed the victory as well as the trophy. But the tables have turned this time around and how has it happened. Melbourne Stars is as good as it ever was and has been absolutely ferocious on the ground while Melbourne Renegades is still waiting for its 15 minutes of fame which has been an issue for them.

Melbourne Stars is sitting on the top of the table with 4 wins to its name while Renegades are yet to win a contest, crazy how much of a difference has been made. It is the home ground of Stars and they are clearly having an advantage too. Glenn Maxwell has been in excellent form with the bat in hand and has shown the caliber with the bowl too. It will be interesting to see how they move forward as they are the favorites going into the contest.
1. Sandeep Lamichhane is back in which means Haris Rauf will have to sit out all over again.
2. Harry Gurney is back in for Renegades in place of Joe Mennie
