Commentator: Deivarayan Muthu

10.15pm Before today, the Stars had won seven of their last eight matches v Renegades. This just wasn't their evening. Stoinis and Maxwell did not get enough big hits in the end overs, then Finch hit out against Beer, Stars' Powerplay specialist. After Zampa bowled Finch with a googly, Nabi took over. Stars have crashed to their fourth loss in four matches. Where will they go from here? Nabi is the Man of the Match. That is all we have for you from this game. Many thanks for your company and comments. Goodbye and good night for now.
