Cricket Match Preview:

After the Sydney derby earlier in the tournament between Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder, we are going to witness another city clash between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades. In the last five occasions, when these two sides have clashed with each other, Melbourne Stars have had better results with three wins out of the five games of cricket.

Melbourne Stars, led by Glen Maxwell, finished 2018 in style by registering a victory against Sydney Sixers. They got off to a bad start in this edition of Big Bash League by losing their first two games of cricket. Stars were buoyed by the inclusion of Peter Handscomb in this game of cricket after he was released from the Australia test team. He scored 70 off just 35 deliveries and helped his side to win within 15 overs.

Melbourne Renegades came unstuck against Sydney Sixers, while their bowling restricted Sixers to a reasonable total of 132 runs in 20 overs. However, their batting failed them in this game of cricket as they just could not get going at any point in time. Apart from MW Harvey, none of the Renegades batsmen got set. Even their heroes, Mohammad Nabi and Dan Christian, from the last game of cricket failed in this game of cricket and, as a result, Renegades folded for the total of 99 runs in 20 overs.

Maxwell’s Melbourne Stars are heavily reliant on the all-round skills of Marcus Stoinis and Dwayne Bravo. Hence, it is imperative for their success that one of these three or ideally all of them keep firing game after game. For Renegades as well, the performances of Mohammad Nabi and Dan Christian is critical. It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in the battle of all-rounders.

Cricket Match Information:

Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades will take part in Melbourne derby. Both teams will come into this game of cricket with different results from their last cricket game. While Stars finally got a taste of victory against Sydney Sixers after losing first two cricket games, Renegades are coming into this game with their winning streak being broken against Sydney Sixers.

Melbourne Stars

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Melbourne Stars finally registered a victory in the cricket tournament after the game against Sydney Sixers. Our prediction is they will be playing the same playing eleven that won them that cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Melbourne Stars’ playing XI:

  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Dwayne Bravo
  • Ben Dunk
  • Adam Zampa
  • EP Gulbis
  • Sandeep Lamichhane
  • Jackson Coleman
  • NCR Larkin
  • Peter Handscomb
  • S Boland

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. In this league, they are being led by TLW Cooper in the absence of Aaron Finch, who 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

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Mohammad Nabi was the star performer for 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. Our prediction is of a great performance from him in the next cricket game as well.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The pitch in the recently concluded test match between India and Australia came under scanner. It looked flat in the first two days but then came to life on day 3 onwards. In this T20 cricket game, it is expected to be slow but should be good for batting. Our prediction is of scores of around 150 runs by the team batting first and it should prove to be a match-winning one.

Our Prediction:

Melbourne Renegades will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. They have won their games in a more convincing manner so far hence, our prediction is of Renegades’ victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

TLW Cooper (MR) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mohammad Nabi (MR) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Mohammad Nabi (MR)
