    That's all from this game!!! Melbourne Stars continue their winning streak and now have 7 wins from the 8 games they have played. There is nothing to talk about Melbourne Renegades though. They remain winless and are in complete tatters. We have a double-header coming up on Saturday, the 11th of January. First up is the Sydney Thunder hosting the Hobart Hurricanes at 1810 Local (0710 GMT). It will be followed by Perth Scorchers facing off against Brisbane Heat. That match will begin at 1810 Local (1010 GMT). Until then, cheers.

    GLENN MAXWELL is the MAN OF THE MATCH. He is down for a quick interview now. Says that the wicket was playing very good and they initially thought that they would be chasing 180 but the bowlers did well to pull the game back. Adds that he had the mindset of targeting the last 10 overs and cash in on them. On his face off with Daniel Christian, Maxwell says that they have been teammates for a long time and they both are competitive. Adds that it is part and parcel of the game.

    Earlier in the first innings, Melbourne Renegades were restricted to 168 after some brilliant death bowling from the Stars. They were on their way to a total around 180 but the flurry of wickets in the end did not let that happen and in the end, the total of 168 was not enough.

    The Renegades' were excellent with the ball at the start. They picked up wickets at regular intervals. Yes, Samit Patel dropped a catch of Ben Dunk but that did not prove to be costly. They might have felt that they were on top at the end of the seventh over but then the Maxwell show started. Samit Patel was economical while Cameron Boyce took a bit of stick in his last over. The seamers would be disappointed as they were taken apart by Maxwell in the end.

    Melbourne Stars' innings did not start off well at all. They lost Stoinis, the highest run-scorer of this season in the BBL so far in the first over and were 54/3 at the end in the seventh over needing still 115 runs to win. That's when Maxwell joined Larkin at the crease and then stitched a magnificent 115-run unbeaten stand to take the team home. Maxwell after a composed start showed his class as he hit his shots to all parts of the ground. One would be wondering now why he is not in the ODI squad for Australia against India. Nick Larkin played the perfect supporting role to the Big Show with a calm innings of 33 runs off 28 balls.

    Wow! Maxwell. It has been all Glenn Maxwell in this chase. He has single-handedly inflicted the 8th straight defeat on the Melbourne Renegades. Top-class hitting from the Big Show. His 83 runs off just 45 balls has just killed the chase.

    SIX! BAM! GAME OVER! The Stars have finished the match with a flurry, dispatching the Renegades yet again. Glenn Maxwell, take a bow! Back of a length ball on the body, Maxwell rocks back and pulls this one over the square leg region for a maximum to end the game in style. THE STARS WIN BY 7 WICKETS.

    Wide! Short ball but it is too high and over Maxwell.

    Daniel Christian to Glenn Maxwell

    NOT OUT! Full ball on middle and leg, Maxwell pushes it back past the bowler and looks for a couple. Larkin obliges and heads towards the non-striker's end. The throw comes in and Christian whips the bails off. Puts in a muted appeal and the umpire refers it upstairs. Replays roll in and show that he is well in.

    Run out appeal! Larkin looks well in at the bowler's end. The replays roll in and it confirms that Nick had made his way in.
