The final practice match

19 December 2016

The Renegades faced the Stars in their final practice match before Thursday’s season opener

The Melbourne Renegades have finalised their preparations for BBL|06 in an informal practice match against the Melbourne Stars at Trinity Sports Grounds.

With both teams using the afternoon to gain some valuable match practice and not selecting traditional final elevens, the Renegades were able to give their batsmen the chance to spend some time at the crease.

Aaron Finch, Callum Ferguson and Tom Beaton were the three who made the most of the opportunity, all posting solid innings.

Finch (54 off 35), Ferguson (41* off 24) and Beaton (30* off 20) all looked in solid touch as the Renegades posted 6/164 off their 20 overs.

In reply, the Stars were led by Glenn Maxwell (77* off 34) and Rob Quiney (51 off 41) to chase down the target with 27 deliveries to spare.

The Renegades open their BBL|06 campaign on December 22 against the Sydney Thunder at Etihad Stadium.
