back of a length delivery from McKay wide outside off. Muralitharan backs away and tries to make some room to slice it over backward point but ended up into the safe hands of Maxwell. He is everywhere and that's the final wicket and a 76 runs victory for the Stars.
A comprehensive win for the Melbourne Stars to start the campaign who post a massive 208 batting first with some blistering knock from the captain and Luke Wright. McKay and Bird shines with ball and nowhere Melbourne Renegades looked near to the target though Finch and Buttler tried their best. Luke Wright named Man of the Match for his knock of 70 and also grabs the important wicket of Finch. That's all we had for you guys tonight, do join us tomorrow for the match between Sixers and Thunder. Cheers!
