Match Preview

Melbourne Renegades are in big trouble as they lost their first 3 matches of the tournament. They lost against Sydney Thunder, Perth Scorchers and Hobart Hurricanes, the worst possible start for the defending champions. They are the only side in the tournament not to open the account.

Adelaide Strikers are at the second position with 5 points, which is equal to the top-ranked Sydney Thunder. Both the teams played good cricket, however, Strikers are riding on their luck. The drawn match at Canberra gave the Strikers a point, while against Perth Scorchers, D/L method and Rashid Khan's magical spell did not let the match slip out of their hands. Siddle’s miraculous bowling saved the game against Melbourne Stars, which was racing away from them initially. For Renegades, it's a very crucial match as they must be feeling edgy to open their account by registering their first win of the series.

Teams Preview

Melbourne Renegades

It’s Renegades' second game at Melbourne, and first at Docklands Stadium. They lost their first game of the season at Simonds Stadium, Geelong against Sydney Thunder by 6 wickets, and thereafter they lost two more matches playing away. Against Perth Scorchers, they came within 11 runs of winning the game as they were given the target of 196, despite Kane Richardson’s 4 for 22. Gleeson and Gurney were too expensive as they gave away more than 100 runs in their 8 overs. Shaun Marsh (38 balls 55 runs) and Beau Webster’s heroic 37 balls 67 (not-out) minimized the gap but could not cross the finishing line for the team. 
In their previous game against Hobart Hurricanes, apart from Finch (37 balls half-century) and Shaun Marsh (37 runs off 30 balls), no other batsmen crossed 20 runs as the team bowled out under 150 in 19.1 overs. Despite double-blow from Tom Cooper in fourth over, defending a modest total of 148 proved to be too much at the end, as they lost the game by 7 wickets. Renegades must pull up the socks now as another loss would be an expensive one.

Key Players - Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Kane Richardson.

Melbourne Renegades Actual Playing XI:

Aaron Finch, Sam Harper, Shaun Marsh, KW Richardson, Harry Gurney, Cameron Boyce, Marcus Harris, Richard Gleeson, BJ Webster, DT Christian, Will Sutherland

Adelaide Strikers

Adelaide Strikers played 3 and won 2 matches in this tournament, while they earned 1 point for the abandoned match at Canberra. While defending 198 runs in the second match, the double-blow from Rashid Khan brought them back in the game after initial onslaught from the Scorchers batsmen, as the Strikers won the game by 15 runs (D/L method).
Third consecutive forty-plus score from the skipper Carey (run-a-ball 45) and the second half-century of the tournament by Jonathan Wells (46 balls 68) led the side to the total of 174 runs at Carrara against Melbourne Stars. Weatherald too played a cameo as he smashed two fours and two sixes off Dale Steyn in the second over, before getting out for 21 runs off just 7 balls. While defending the total, Agar and Valente conceded 87 runs in their 8 overs, however tight bowling from Rashid (23 for 1) and Siddle’s magical spell (24 for 3) just saved the match at the end by 5 runs. Siddle took the crucial wicket of dangerous Maxwell in 18th and Dunk in the fifth ball of the final over of the game. The batsmen and bowlers have really complemented each other in each game, and they must continue doing so, however, a little bit more discipline is needed, especially with the ball.

Key Players - Jake Weatherald, Alex Carey, Rashid Khan

Venue Details

The venue for the match is Docklands Stadium, Melbourne.

Toss Prediction

The venue for the match is Docklands Stadium, Melbourne, which is yet to host an international T20 match. The surface is very good for batting. In the last season, 7 T20 matches were played here including the second semi-final and the Final, and 4 times the teams batting second have won. It is recommended to field first after winning the toss.

Winning Prediction

Melbourne Renegades are yet to win a match in the series, while Adelaide Strikers are yet to lose a match in the series. Both the teams have very good players, however, Adelaide Strikers players, especially the bowlers, have produced better results by winning the crunch moments.

Their batsmen too put up sufficient runs on the board with collective efforts and consistency. At Docklands Stadium, out of four games played between Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers, the result went in favour of the Strikers three times.

Thus, we predict that Adelaide Strikers will defeat Melbourne Renegades!
