Melbourne Renegades (REN) and Melbourne Stars (STA) are set to lock horns in match 36 of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2023-2024 on Saturday, January 13, at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne.

The Melbourne derby is always watched with great interest by cricket enthusiasts. This time, the campaign for the two teams has been quite contrasting. While the Stars are positioned at No. 5 and are still in contention for a berth in the next round, the Renegades are languishing at the foot of the points table and have already been eliminated.

The Stars, led by Glenn Maxwell, have won four and lost as many in the eight games they have played. On the other hand, the Renegades have managed to win just one and lost six out of their eight matches. One of their games ended in a no-result. Earlier this season, when these two sides had faced each other, Stars won by eight wickets in a rain-marred 14-over contest.

REN vs STA Probable Best Performers

Probable Best Batter: Glenn Maxwell

The charismatic Aussie batter came into the tournament on the back of stellar form. He has fared decently thus far, having scored 191 runs at an average of 38.20 and a strike rate of 170.54 in seven innings. He has got starts in most of the games but is yet to score a half-century. Maxwell would love to register a big score against the Renegades.

Probable Best Bowler: Tom Rogers

The 29-year-old has picked up seven wickets at an average of 33 and an economy rate of 8.50 in eight games. Rogers will have to play a crucial role with the new ball against the Stars batters. If he can make some early inroads, it will make things easier for the bowlers to follow.
