Aaron Finch led Melbourne Renegades to a six-wicket victory despite his early dismissal in the game against Melbourne Stars on Saturday. Finch left the ground to cheers from the 41,205-strong crowd, as his team chased down a target of 137 with 16 balls to spare. This win dealt a significant blow to the Stars’ hopes of making it to the BBL finals. Finch, who is the Renegades’ all-time leading scorer, announced his retirement from T20 cricket during this match. Alongside this, young players like Shaun Marsh and Jonathan Wells also played crucial roles in securing the Renegades’ victory. Melbourne’s loss pushed them to fifth place in the table, leaving them a point behind Adelaide Strikers. In another BBL match, Perth Scorchers secured a comfortable 35-run victory against Brisbane Heat, largely due to strong bowling performances from Lance Morris and AJ Tye. This win puts the Scorchers into second place in the table.
