The Stars will bowl first in an all-Melbourne Big Bash League Twenty20 final Sunday against cross-town rivals the Renegades, the culmination of a near two-month tournament.

Skipper Glenn Maxwell won the toss at Docklands Stadium on what has previously been a quick wicket.

“We’ve played some pretty cricket up to now, the team has hit form at the right time,” said Maxwell, who made one change to his Stars side from the semi-finals with Jackson Bird in for Evan Gulbis. “We are very relaxed.”

Melbourne Renegades captain Aaron Finch named an unchanged team and was happy, saying he would have batted first if he had won the toss.

“Going to be a great spectacle,” he added.

The two sides met twice in the group stages, with the Stars winning both times, thanks to standout performances with the bat and ball by Marcus Stoinis.

The Renegades are playing their first BBL final, while the Stars were beaten finalists at home to Sydney Thunder in 2016.
