All-rounder rallied late in Melbourne Derby after bizarre run-out saw the back of Peter Nevill at the Docklands Stadium. Melbourne Renegades batting first posted 155/6 against the Stars in an important game of the ongoing BBL. Chris Gayle made 21 runs from 21 deliveries in his first innings since his controversial sideline interview on Monday night, leaving fellow West Indian Dwayne Bravo to anchor the innings of 6-155 with an unbeaten 59 from 37 deliveries.
Renegades were in trouble at 5-78 after an eventful Adam Zampa over where Test keeper Phil Nevill, in his first game of BBL5, was run out in bizarre circumstances. Bravo stepped out of his crease and hit the ball towards the non-striker Nevill who was standing a long way out of his crease with his bat hanging out to his left.
The ball crashed into the bat and ricocheted into the face of Zampa, who was reacting to try and field it. The ball then ricocheted off Zampa’s face and hit the stumps, with Nevill well short. He checked on Zampa, who was bleeding from the nose, before walking off. The doctor ran on to the field to help Zampa out.
Stoinis was the pick of the bowlers with 3-11 from two overs. The match is a crucial one for both side’s finals chances, but particularly Renegades who are in the sixth spot on the ladder with two wins from five games. Third-placed Stars won last Saturday night’s historic local derby played in front of a record BBL crowd of 80,883 at the MCG with a venue record crowd expected at Etihad Stadium for the rematch.
