Cricket Match Preview:

After the controversial cricket game in their last venture, Sydney Thunder will now take on Melbourne Renegades. There was a huge controversy in their last game of cricket when Thunder took on Brisbane Heat. They were well on their way towards victory against Heat when the floodlights failed and the match had to be abandoned. On the next day, Sydney Thunder lodged an official complaint and wanted 2 points to be awarded to them. Brendon McCullum of Brisbane Heat then raised concerns against the complaint.

Melbourne Renegades, on the other hand, are coming after a poor cricket game against Melbourne Stars. In a low-scoring encounter, Melbourne Stars beat Renegades by 6 wickets and left Renegades with 5 wins out 10 cricket games. Now with just 4 cricket games remaining, Renegades need to win at least 3 cricket games to get a sure spot in the next round.

Sydney Thunder are playing some good cricket at the moment and with some luck, they would have 2 extra points in their last cricket game. In their last 5 cricket games, they have won 2 games of cricket and could easily have 3 wins instead of 2. The key to their success has been the form of their skipper Shane Watson. He has been in great form and hit a century against Brisbane Heat. That was his first century ever in the Big Bash League tournament.

An extra motivation for Sydney Thunder is that if they can beat Melbourne Renegades in this game of cricket, they will displace Renegades as the number two side on the points table.

Renegades, on the other hand, now have the services of their regular skipper Aaron Finch. Finch would like to improve his form along with taking Renegades ahead in the tournament. He would know that if Renegades can get Watson early, there is very little firepower in Thunder’s arsenal post that.

Cricket Match Information:

Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades will take on each other in their 10th and 11th cricket game of the tournament. Both cricket teams are on 3rd and 2nd spot on the points table. Teams would be needing at least 8 wins to go through to the next round.

Sydney Thunder

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sydney Thunder, led by Shane Watson, began with a good form in this cricket league. They are sitting rather comfortably at number 3 position on the points table. Our prediction is there will be no changes in their lineup.

Here is our prediction of Sydney Thunder’s playing XI:

  • Shane Watson
  • AP Devcich
  • CJ Green
  • C Ferguson
  • JS Lenton
  • Gurinder Sandhu
  • AJ Nair
  • Fawad Ahmed
  • Daniel Sams
  • Chris Green
  • CJ Jordan

Melbourne Renegades

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Melbourne Renegades had a fantastic start to the tournament. They are currently at number 2 position on the points table with 5 wins out of 10 cricket games. 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:

  • Marcus Harris
  • SB Harper
  • Cameron White
  • TLW Cooper
  • Aaron Finch
  • Dan Christian
  • Mohammad Nabi
  • JD Wildermuth
  • CJ Boyce

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Daniel Sams has been the X-factor of Sydney Thunder. Thunder have used him as a pinch-hitter to hit some lusty blows. Our prediction is of a good performance from him once again in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

It is the home ground of Sydney Thunder cricket team. They have played two cricket games here and won both games of cricket against Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers. So far, 169 is the highest score on this cricket ground as scored by Thunder against Sixers. That score proved to be a match-winning score. Our prediction is of a score of around 160 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Sydney Thunder will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. They have played better cricket in the last few cricket games hence, our prediction is of Heat’s victory.
