STA vs REN, 27th Match Preview
Melbourne Stars take on Melbourne Renegades on Tuesday evening at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Match 26 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League. The Stars won their last game, an eight run victory over Adelaide Strikers on New Year’s Eve. The Renegades come into this Melbourne derby after losing their last four matches. Melbourne Stars got back to winning ways with a very impressive team performance in Adelaide. They will take confidence from that victory and will fancy their chances of adding another win in this derby clash. Melbourne Renegades are in a poor run of form and have lost recent games by large margins.

Topmost Picks for STA vs REN Dream11 Prediction, 27th Match:
Top Picks – Melbourne Stars
- Marcus Stoinis – The batting all-rounder took the Player of the Match Award for his fine batting display on Saturday. He hit 11 boundaries in the innings and will be looking to clear the ropes again in this match.
- Joe Clarke – The keeper-batter continued his excellent BBL season with 42 runs from 32 balls in the win over Adelaide Strikers. He comes into this game with 232 runs in the BBL 2022-23.
Top Picks – Melbourne Renegades
- Aaron Finch – The form of the former skipper has been a rare bright spot for Melbourne Renegades during this campaign. He is the second highest run scorer in the 2022-23 BBL.
- Akeal Hosein – The West Indian spinner went wicketless against Perth Scorchers in the last match but should get some turn and bounce from the pitch in this match.

STA vs REN 27th Match Probable winners:
With the exception of Aaron Finch, Melbourne Renegades have struggled to make consistent runs with the bat. Melbourne Stars have more runs in their team and we expect that to be the difference between the teams. Any time two teams from the same city go head to head, you are guaranteed an extra bit of tension and interest in the fixture. This match will be no different with both the Stars and the Renegades needing a victory. The Renegades began the season in excellent form but have struggled to back up Aaron Finch who has been their only consistent performer of late. Our prediction is for Melbourne Stars to win. Considering the team combination, Melbourne Stars is expected to win this match.
