The Melbourne Stars WBBL squad has been penalised for a slow over rate in their Rebel Women’s Big Bash League match against the Melbourne Renegades at Marvel Stadium on Saturday 29 December 2018.

The Stars were found to be 10 minutes behind the scheduled time to complete their 20 overs, after allowances, equating to two overs short.

In accordance with the WBBL Playing Conditions, each member of the playing XI was offered a $250 fine.

The Stars accepted this without appeal and their penalty was reduced to $125 per player, while Stars captain Kristen Beams receives one strike.

Two more strikes for Beams for slow over rates would see her miss one match.
