“Just the knee plugged. The ground’s horrendous, it’s soft, so you’ve got to be a bit more careful than that,” Larkin said.
“I probably should have known better but in the moment you try to make the play. I just went straight through the surface. It’s pretty spongy. You’ll probably see a bit more of that if there’s more games here.
“I’m still standing, but maybe a heavier guy does a bit more damage to himself. I guess it’s safe enough, but it’s not ideal.”
Larkin posted a half-century but it wasn’t enough as the Stars were stunned by a brilliant 45 not out from Renegades youngster Mackenzie Harvey, who led his side to a five-wicket win with two balls to spare.
“It’s one of the best wins I’ve been a part of. They always seem to happen against the Stars, which is nice. It was just a great win overall in the end,” Harvey said.
“It was nice to get a few out of the middle. It’s just one of those games where everything sort of paid off in the end. It was just our night, in the end.”
The result was the Renegades’ third win of the season, meaning they remain a slim chance to avoid the wooden spoon. The Stars now have little margin for error if they are to qualify for the finals in a tightly-packed ladder.
