What is the pitch report for STA vs REN, BBL 2022/23, Match 27?
It is one of the best sporting surfaces in Australia. Long boundaries on both sides of the ground make it difficult for the batters to clear ropes easily. Quick bowlers will get more support from the wicket.
Boult: “I’m here to bowl and take Guppy’s wicket.” 😅

Melbourne Stars are back to their best with a hard-fought 8-run win over Adelaide Strikers. Marcus Stoinis finally broke his shackles and scored 74 runs to put Stars in a commendable position. Englishman Joe Clarke too had a good day, scoring 42 runs at a strike rate of 131.25. Overall everything went their way, as a result, they secured 2nd win in this competition. They sit at 2nd from the bottom of the standings with 4 points. Luke Wood had an off day in the last outing and still remains their best bowler with 11 scalps. They have named an unchanged squad for the derby clash.
Melbourne Renegades started the tournament with 3 consecutive wins and later suffered 4 straight losses to push themselves down to 5th spot in the standings. On their home turf, they lost to Perth Scorchers in an evenly poised contest by 5 wickets in the final over. Adding to the insult, skipper Nic Maddinson has been ruled out until further notice with a ruptured ACL. Aaron Finch will take over the captaincy responsibilities in his absence. Peter Handscomb to misses this game. Jake Fraser McGurk and Jack Prestwidge will come in as replacements. They need to show a lot of courage and determination to get back to the winning zone.
