The 27th match of Big Bash League 2022-23 will be a Melbourne Derby as Melbourne Stars will be hosting Melbourne Renegades at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground tomorrow.

The first Derby of this season, an encounter between these two teams will be played after almost a year. Stars, who’ve been the better of the two teams historically, had won their last match after captain Glenn Maxwell scored 68* (45) as an opening batter to seal a 123-run chase in the 15th over.

Fans, however, would be expecting a more tightly-fought contest between two teams placed in the bottom half of the points table. Having won two and lost four matches this season till now, Stars find themselves on the penultimate position at the points table. Renegades, on the other hand, have won three and lost four matches to be on the fifth position for now.
