David Hussey: Very proud of the boys. Beer upfront and Maxi bowled well and Zampa goes from strength to strength. Great knocks from Maxi and Handscomb though we did not have the best of starts. Fun playing against Renegades. Looking forward to the Melbourne Derby.

Maxwell, Man of the Match: We were staring down the barrel, good to win. I just wanted to hit the gaps and let Handscomb do his thing. Beer was outstanding. Looking forward to the Derby.

That is all we have for you. A disciplined bowling effort was followed by fifties from Maxwell and Handscomb as Stars chased down 140 to get their BBL 5 campaign up and running. Do tune in tomorrow. Cheers and goodbye for now.

Vamsi Krishna T: "Peterscomb at number 4 is perfect for Stars, I hope they do not tinker this line-up once KP is back!"

kris: "Hi, can someone tell me why KP is not playing?" -- I guess he is on paternity leave
