Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades– Big Bash League match prediction
In a surprising coincidence, the Adelaide Strikers and the Melbourne Renegades played the Hobart Hurricanes in their previous fixtures. They won their respective matches and meet in Adelaide to decide their fate in the contest. A win will help the Renegades secure valuable points in their top 4 finish. On the other hand, a win for the strikers will help them get into the top four.
Talking about their form, the Strikers are out of control. Previously, they were involved in a high-scoring run chase against the Hurricanes. Being asked to bat first, the Hurricanes put in a mammoth total of 229/4. Twin fifties by Caleb Jewell & Zak Crawley and a 30-ball 57 by Ben McDermott did the job for the visitors. However, the duo of Matt Short & Chris Lynn turned the course of the match. A sizzling 59-ball unbeaten 100 by Short alongside the latters’ 29-ball 64 helped chase the ginormous total in 19.3 overs.
On the other hand, the Renegades handed a tormenting defeat in yet another run-chase fiasco. Kane Richardson’s 2/20 helped the Renegades restrict the Hurricanes to a mere 162/8. In reply, Sam Harper played a brilliant inning of 89 off just 48 balls. His heroics helped his side bag an easy win by 6 wickets with almost 2 overs to spare. These were now two matches that the Hurricanes had given away.
