The Renegades roll on and have booked themselves a home semi-final with a thrashing over the Stars in a fiery Melbourne derby.

The Stars are now in real danger of missing the finals altogether with the Heat, Scorchers, Hurricanes and Strikers all pressing for the remaining three spots.

Aaron Finch is tonight's Man of the Match for his 67 off just 47 balls, another dominant display for Australia's most in-form short form player. Thanks for your company, good night.
