Stars storm Renegades鈥 fortress

Melbourne Stars have reaffirmed their title credentials in front of a record-breaking crowd at Etihad Stadium with a nine-wicket victory over Melbourne Renegades.

With fireworks on and off the pitch, 42,837 fans clicked through the turnstiles at Docklands, eclipsing the previous mark of 38,364 for a one-day international against South Africa at the venue in 2006 and producing the third largest crowd ever for a domestic Twenty20 fixture.

Renegades captain Aaron Finch blasted an unbeaten 84 from 55 balls and was well supported by Tom Cooper (60 off 44 balls) as the home side posted 5-163.

The Stars then mowed down the target with 22 balls to spare as skipper Cameron White (84* from 49 balls) and Glenn Maxwell (58 from 28 balls) combined for a scintillating 98-run stand.
