During the match between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL), Stars’ captain Glenn Maxwell turned fortune-teller and predicted the exact mode of dismissal of a batsman at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
In the second over of the Renegades’ innings, Maxwell was chatting with the commentators while fielding when he said, “We might get a catch at mid-off or mid-on”. Exactly a ball later, Renegades opener Sam Harper was caught at mid-on by Daniel Worrall off a delivery from Nathan Coulter-Nile.

In the match, Renegades was asked to bat first by Stars captain Maxwell. They were off to a bad start having lost two early wickets with just 55 runs on the board. Matured display by Shaun Marsh (43) and Beau Webster (29) in the middle overs helped them reach a total of 142.
Dale Steyn was the pick of the bowler as he returned with a figure of 2/16. Sandeep Lamichhane also bowled brilliantly for his numbers of 3/26. Adam Zampa had also taken 2/19 in his quota of four overs.
Stars, on the other hand, got off to a flyer with Marcus Stoinis smashed 68 off 55 deliveries while opening the innings. Maxwell finished the chase for his team with a score of 40 after Stars lost two wickets.
