Cricket Match Preview:

Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers will continue their rivalry in their fifth cricket game of this edition of Big Bash League. So far, it has been a mixed bag for the defending champions, Adelaide Strikers. They have played four cricket games and won two of them. They won their second cricket game in their last game against Sydney Thunder. Melbourne Renegades, on the other hand, have so far played three games of cricket and they have won two of them.

Adelaide Strikers were under pressure coming into their fourth game of cricket in the competition. They had lost two consecutive cricket games and had to do something to control the downward slide. If they were nervous, they did not show it as they began with a flourish against Thunder. Led by skipper Colin Ingram’s fabulous knock, they reached a total of 175 and it proved to be enough in the end.

The score posted by Strikers proved to be enough because of two inspired performers, Peter Siddle and Rashid Khan. While Siddle had remained on the sidelines during the time he was with Australian team, he did not look rusty at all. In fact, his spell proved to be the difference between the two cricket sides in the end. Khan, on other hand, had lost his father the day before the game. It was immense courage in itself for him to appear in this game but the way he bowled showed what a performer he is.

Melbourne Renegades had been pretty good until their game of cricket against the Sydney Sixers. Against the Sixers, their batting just never got going and they failed to chase the total down. They needed to chase down only 133 runs in their 20 overs but Renegades, on a tough pitch, failed to get going and got restricted to a total of under 100 runs.

Cricket Match Information:

Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers will take on each other in search of their third victory in the Big Bash League. Both teams have so far played three and four cricket games respectively. By the time this piece is being written, Renegades had played three games and are scheduled to play Melbourne Stars on the first of January.

Melbourne Renegades

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Melbourne Renegades had a fantastic start to the tournament. However, they came second in the game of cricket against the Sydney Sixers. They are being led by TLW Cooper in the absence of Aaron Finch in this league as he is on Australia international duty at the moment. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven as their last game of cricket despite the loss in their previous game of cricket.

Here is our prediction of Melbourne Renegades’ playing XI:

  • Cameron White
  • SB Harper
  • TP Ludeman
  • TLW Cooper
  • MW Harvey
  • Dan Christian
  • Mohammad Nabi
  • JD Wildermuth
  • CJ Boyce
  • KW Richardson
  • Usman Shinwari

Adelaide Strikers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Adelaide Strikers began to fall away a little after a fair start. However, they restricted their slide by winning the game of cricket against Sydney Thunder. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven as their last game.

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • J Weatherhald
  • Colin Ingram
  • JW Wells
  • JS Lehmann
  • MG Neser
  • C Valente
  • MW Short
  • Ben Laughlin
  • Rashid Khan
  • Billy Stanlanke

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Mohammad Nabi was the star performer of Renegades in the game of cricket against Adelaide Strikers. His hitting ability under pressure was fantastic to see and more of the same will be needed in the rest of the tournament. In this game of cricket, he will come face-to-face against his teammate of Afghanistan side, Rashid Khan. Our prediction is of a great performance from him in the next cricket game as well.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last T20 International cricket game played on this cricket ground was between Australia and Sri Lanka. The host had come second despite scoring 173 runs after batting first. Our prediction is of a similar high-scoring cricket game. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Adelaide Strikers will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They are coming into this cricket game after their win against Sydney Thunder. Hence, our prediction is of Strikers’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

SB Harper (MR) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mohammad Nabi (MR) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Mohammad Nabi (MR)
