The Stars bowled first, dominating the early stages of the game through the early wickets of TLA athletes, Aaron Finch and Cameron White as well as the notable Marcus Harris. The Renegades ended the 20 overs at 5/145 after innings saving performances from Tom Cooper (43*) and Daniel Christian (38*).
It was then the Stars turn to bat and it was a promising start, not losing a wicket until Marcus Stoinis (39) in the 13th over. At one stage the Stars needed only 53 off 43 balls with 10 wickets at hand. However, the opening partnership of 93 between Stoinis and Ben Dunk (57) was followed by a loss of 7 wickets for only 19 runs.
Renegades skipper Aaron Finch celebrated his side’s victory in what is the Renegade’s first championship in the eight seasons of competition.
Congratulations again to TLA’s own Aaron Finch, Tom Cooper, Michael Beer, Jonathan Holland, Cameron White and Dan Worrall for their involvement in the final.
