The defending champions Melbourne Renegades will play their fourth cricket game of the season. They are being led by Aaron Finch this year as well. Finch led his side to the title win last year.
Renegades have a new coach this season in Michael Klinger, who has replaced Andrew McDonald. Renegades have not gotten off to a great start this season, they have lost all their cricket games so far and are under pressure to turn around the campaign soon.
Due to three back-to-back losses, the team is likely to undergo some changes to their lineup.
Here is our prediction of Melbourne Renegades’ playing XI:
- Aaron Finch
- Shaun Marsh
- Dan Christian
- Kane Richardson
- Harry Gurney
- BJ Webster
- SB Harper
- Tom Cooper
- RJ Gleeson
- CJ Boyce
- Marcus Harris
Adelaide Strikers are being led by Alex Carrey in the first few games of this season. He will then go on national duty as Australia will tour India next month.
Strikers have so far played two games of cricket of which they won the last game and the first cricket game was abandoned due to the bush fire in Sydney. In their last cricket game, they scored 198 runs on batting first in 18 overs and then managed to defend the total by just 15 runs against Perth Scorchers.
Rashid Khan was the star for Strikers in the last cricket game as he picked up three wickets for 40 runs and turned the game towards his team.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:
- Alex Carey
- Rashid Khan
- Wes Agar
- Phil Salt
- Cameron White
- Billy Stanlake
- Jake Weatherald
- JW Wells
- MW Short
- HNA Conway
- C Valente
Expert Prediction: MR vs AS
The ninth season of Big Bash League is underway. The tournament has slowly gained momentum and sides have already played a handful of cricket games. The next game is going to be played between Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers. Renegades really need to step up and start winning soon, otherwise, they will be left far behind the other teams.
The tournament will be played over a period of 42 days and a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams.
As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the side that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.
The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature, which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament.
In the last five encounters between Renegades and Strikers, Strikers have been the winner on three occasions while Renegades have won two cricket matches.
Our prediction is of a win for Adelaide Strikers. They are a more confident unit at the moment compared to Renegades, who are currently reeling from three back-to-back losses.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
