BBL08 comes to an end today as the Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars battle it out, both seeking their first title. Join The Roar for live scores and a live blog of the match, starting from 2:45pm AEDT

Cricket is an unusual game. Not anyone would have predicted that a Melbourne derby would be the final outcome of a BBL league that has gone on for longer than any other high-profile cricket tournament in history.

Both the Renegades and the Stars have a chance to make BBL history today, as neither team has ever won the trophy since the tournament’s inception back in 2011.

The best result for the Stars so far has been runners-up in the BBL 05, while the Renegades have been semi-finalists in BBL 02, 07 and 08.

The opportunity for inaugural BBL glory awaits both teams who are hungry to grab the coveted prize.

If we analyse each team’s road to the final, their campaigns could not be any more similar.

Neither side can really call themselves the best team of the tournament – that honour goes to the Hobart Hurricanes who only lost four games for the entire season but bowed out when it really mattered.

The Renegades have only won one game more than the Stars, and thanks to a few resounding and comfortable victories in the latter end of the tournament, they see their net run rate propel them into second place.

The Melbourne Stars are truly the underdogs in this game.

Languishing at sixth and seventh on the BBL ladder for much of the season, some brave leadership by Glen Maxwell, with important contributions from Marcus Stoinis, Nepalese superstar Sandeep Lamichchane and Ben Dunk allowed them to keep their noses just in front for finals contention, and they made it in by the skin of their teeth.

Despite their spirited efforts, their bowling remains a big weak link, with not a single Stars player amongst the top ten wicket-takers for BBL 09.

Prediction
When these two teams clashed in the qualifying games, the Stars recorded comfortable victories over the Renegades each time.

Don’t expect this to be the case on this occasion though.

The Renegades have a beefed-up batting line up with plenty of international experience. Expect the likes of Aaron Finch, Cameron White and Dan Christian to feast on a weakened Stars bowling line-up once they get going.

If the Stars aren’t careful, the Renegades could run away with the trophy before they know it.
