Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Renegades – Big Bash League match prediction

Sydney Thunder had a mighty task ahead of them in the form of Hobart Hurricanes and choosing to bat first didn’t help their cause. Nathan Ellis (4/27) & Patrick Dooley (3/22), tore through Thunder’s batting lineup as they were bundled out for a mere 135. Oliver Davies was the only positive in this batting collapse with his 38-ball 45. The Hurricanes then came out to bat to chase down the total quickly. In reply, Daniel Sam bowled a magnificent spell of 4/18, however, the others were taken to the cleaners. Tim David smashed a scintillating 41-ball 76* to help his side win by 5 wickets and 23 balls to spare.

On the other hand, the Renegades emerged victorious in a Melbourne city clash previously. Being asked to bat first, the Renegades kept the scoreboard ticking despite losing wickets at regular intervals. Sam Harper’s 36-ball 51 and Jonathan Wells’ 24-ball 44 helped the men in red get to 162/7. It was a par score on the board as the Stars walked out to bat. Joe Clarke smashed a brilliant 37-ball 59 to take the match down to the wire. However, a brilliant spell of 2/17 off 4 overs by Kane Richardson helped defend the total. Melbourne Renegades won the match by 6 runs in a final-over thriller.

Melbourne Renegades– BBL match prediction

Melbourne Renegades have been in great form but their performance against the upcoming opponents has been poor in the past. However, they have just the right line-up to get them this win. Skipper Aaron Finch and in-form batter Sam Harper will be key prospects with the bat. In 10 matches, the former has scored 253 runs while the latter has scored 209 runs in just 7 games. The skipper needs to get some runs to his tally so far to keep building momentum. Meanwhile, the bowling unit has done a stupendous job. Tom Rogers is third on the list of top wicket-takers this season, bagging 19 wickets in 11 games. He has received immense support from pacer Kane Richardson, who has 11 wickets in 9 games at an excellent economy rate.

Squad: Martin Guptill, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Sam Harper(w), Aaron Finch(c), Matt Critchley, Jonathan Wells, Tom Rogers, Will Sutherland, Ruwantha Kellepotha, Kane Richardson, Fawad Ahmed
