Riding on the back of a Finch ton, Renegades chase down the target of 168 easily. The run-out of Hodge turned the tide when Stars were going at a rate of nearly 10 runs per over. Warne hoped for a turnaround that never came thanks to Finch

Expectedly, Finch is the Man of the Match. Do join us tomorrow for the second derby of the season as Thunder lock horns with Sixers. Till then, good night from all of us here
