10.45 pm That's all from the Melbourne Derby from the Docklands Stadium. The win for the Stars mean that they still have a mathematical chance of qualifying into the semi-finals, but it's still very unlikely. The Renegades, however, have not done themselves any favour by losing against the bottom-ranked team today. With Finch and White out for national duty, the next few matches will be crucial for them. That's all from the BBL today, hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the 26th match. On behalf of Varun Shetty, it's good bye from Sreshth!
