Cricket Match Preview:

In the end, there are two. The two teams left standing after one and a half month of gruelling Big Bash League tournament are Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars. None of the two teams was fancied favourites before the beginning of the tournament. In fact, none of the two cricket teams was a favourite to reach the semi-final at halfway mark.

Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars had a herculean task of facing Sydney Sixers and Hobart Hurricanes in their semi-final game. While Renegades were facing the number 3 side on the points table, Stars had a tougher job of facing Hobart Hurricanes, who were the table-toppers right throughout the tournament.

Melbourne Renegades, led by Aaron Finch, had a great turnaround since his arrival. While before his arrival and during the time the side was struggling to maintain the momentum, Tom Cooper led the side. This side was also helped by the brilliance of two all-rounders, Dan Christian and Mohammad Nabi. While Nabi has been called back by the Afghanistan cricket board, Christian is still there and was the chief architect of Renegades’ semi-final victory.

Melbourne Stars have been led by arguably the captain of the tournament, Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell has led the side in an inspiring manner and, while he did struggle for runs right throughout the tournament, he has shown signs of getting to his prime form in the last couple of cricket games. The player of their side has been Marcus Stoinis, who has opened the batting for his side with great success as well as chipped in with wickets at various stages of the tournament.

It is going to be an exciting finale between the two very evenly matched sides. Both sides are being led by two of the current Australian players in Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell and whoever wins the tournament will give a good leadership option to the Australian cricket team.
