Stars vs Renegades: A Thrilling Match Report from the 54th Game of the 2023/24 Season

1 min read

The Melbourne Stars defeated the Melbourne Renegades in a rain-affected derby at the MCG, ending both teams’ underwhelming WBBL campaigns. Annabel Sutherland led the way for the Stars with a score of 118, while Kim Garth’s early wickets in the Renegades’ chase gave the Stars the advantage. The Renegades were reduced to 27 for 2 in 5.3 overs, falling short by eight runs on the DLS chart when the rain ended the match. With this victory, the Stars notched their fourth win in five matches, finishing the season with six wins in 14 games. The result left the Renegades with just two wins in 14 matches. The disappointing encounter also marked the end of former Australian international Jess Duffin’s professional career, as she announced her retirement before the match. Regular Stars captain Meg Lanning was absent from the last three games of the season for personal reasons after retiring from international cricket.
