Melbourne Stars won the coin toss and opted to field. After the early loss of Sam Harper was out for a duck, Martin Guptill and Shaun Marsh then steadily built a partnership, but were unable to increase their scoring rate significantly. Guptill hit 32 runs off 27 deliveries before before being dismissed, while Marsh made 32 runs off 35 balls.
Trent Boult then got the in-form batter Aaron Finch out and Jonathan Wells and Mackenzie Harvey then helped the Renegades to turn the game around with a strong partnership.
Harvey finished the match undefeated on 32 runs off 23 deliveries. However, there was some excitement in the final over when Zampa had a 'Mankad' moment and attempted to run out Tom Rogers at the bowling end, but the third umpire ruled that Zampa had completed his bowling action and declared Rogers not out.
In the end, the Melbourne Stars were able to limit the Renegades to 141 runs in 20 overs. Trent Boult and Luke Wood led the way with two wickets each, and Webster, Coulter-Nile, and Zampa added one wicket each. With their strong batting lineup, the Melbourne Stars should have little difficulty chasing down this target.
Inspired by the 'Mankad Moment' that occurred towards the end of the Renegades' innings, Rogers came out firing on all cylinders - He dismissed Joe Clarke with the first legal delivery and then took out Beau Webster and Thomas Rogers in his second over. It was a devastating spell of fast bowling that caught the Stars by surprise, and they were unable to recover.
Will Sutherland then dismissed Marcus Stoinis with the score now 18/4. Hilton Cartwright and Nick Larkin attempted to get the Stars back on track with a 39-run partnership, but a series of wickets in the latter stages of the match swung the game heavily in favour of the Renegades. Larkin performed well, and Rogers was the standout bowler for the Renegades, finishing with impressive figures of 5/16 in his four-over spell.
