Question in detail
Melbourne Renegades Vs Melbourne Stars, 19th Match, BBL 2016-17: Renegades and Stars are set for their second encounter this weekend in the ongoing Big Bash League 2016-17. The first match (12th of the tournament) played between these two sides on January 1st at MCG saw Renegades' ageless spinner Brad Hogg guiding his team to a 7-run victory over Stars. Renegades did just about what was needed to hang on in the end, thus managing to be slightly atop the Stars. Placed 4th at present with two wins out of three games, Renegades would be now eyeing an even higher spot in the point table. And, yes they would attain it if they become the winner of MLR VS MLS in BBL 2016-17 this Saturday, on January 7th. In the last game played against Stars, Renegades bounced back strongly after a 4-wicket defeat to Perth Scorchers in the previous encounter.
Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, struggled to their second consecutive defeat to Renegades and then Thunder respectively to cement 6th spot in the point table. Though they started the tournament off well with a win over Hurricanes, the next two games thereafter for Stars came hard to maintain the momentum. Now in the next game, Melbourne Renegades Vs Melbourne Stars 19th match of BBL 2016-17, Stars would need a big turnaround. Unfortunately, Stars' faithful names including Glenn Maxwell and David Hussey have failed to deliver the promise, and which is why they are currently 6th in the point table with two defeats out of three games. Nonetheless, their chances to become the winner of MLR VS MLS in BBL 2016-17 cannot be negated.
Will Stars bounce back strongly facing off Renegades in the 19th match of Big Bash League 2017?
