Scorecard summary
Melbourne Renegades142/9(20 overs)
Melbourne Stars143/2(18.5 overs)

10:23pm Melbourne Stars open up a gap at the top of the table. Fifth win in six games and two points ahead now of Sydney Sixers who have eight points in six games. For Renegades - another day without a win. They continue to be the only team without a win this season. The derby doesn't prove to be a turning point for them, which is a pity after the start they had to their innings earlier today. Stars' spinners were too good in the back end of the innings and their openers put up 41 in the first three overs of a 143-run chase. From there, it was a canter. Stoinis unbeaten on 68 and Maxwell on 40 seeing them through.
