Squads named for New Year's Day Derby

31 December 2018

The Melbourne Stars has made one change to their WBBL side and two to their BBL side ahead of tomorrow's blockbuster New Years Day Double Header Derby against the Renegades at the MCG.

Chloe Rafferty replaces Kristen Beams in the 13-player WBBL squad, while Seb Gotch and Jonathan Merlo come in to the BBL side for Peter Handscomb (Test squad) and Jackson Coleman (personal reasons).

If selected, Merlo will make his BBL debut.

Beams has been left out of the squad as part of plans to manage her tendon load across the season, and Erin Osborne will take the reins as skipper.

The Stars WBBL side will be looking to bounce back after falling short in the final over to the Renegades at Marvel Stadium on Saturday, while the BBL side will be looking for their second win in a row after defeating the Sydney Sixers at the SCG.
