REN vs STA, Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Melbourne Stars is expected to win this match against Melbourne Renegades.
With a resourceful bowling attack in their ranks, the Stars should fancy their chances in this contest. They have a deep-seated batting line-up with the likes of Maxwell and Cartwright. However, both teams will be entering this contest on the back of recent losses in their last games.
On the other hand, the Renegades are struggling with their batting department as they are leaking way too many runs. They boast a strong bowling attack with the likes of Kane Richardson and Reece Topley but other bowlers are leaking way too many runs that are proving to be the turning point in the game for them.
