Stars win by six wickets with four balls to spare. Clinical from Marcus Stoinis. After three wickets with the ball he finishes with 70 not out from 65 balls to control the chase and see the side home with Dwayne Bravo. The Renegades did a decent job to take it that deep given they made such a low total. Kane Richardson was outstanding. Finch perhaps could have used Mohammad Nabi for one or two more overs. But they lost it with the bat. Marcus Stoinis is Player of the Match for his 70 not out and 3 for 19 with the ball. The Stars get their fourth win to keep in touch with the finals race. That's it from Marvel Stadium. Thanks for your company. Join us again tomorrow as the Sydney Sixers host the Brisbane Heat in Sydney. Until then, goodbye.
