Teams Preview

Melbourne Renegades Preview

Reigning Champions Melbourne Renegades have lost three matches in a row and will need to produce something special in a bid to break their losing streak against Adelaide Strikers.

In the previous game, Renegades managed to post a score of 147 runs, courtesy Aaron Finch’s splendid half-century.

Captain Aaron Finch scored 50 runs off 37 balls with the help of six boundaries. He was well supported by Shaun Marsh, who chipped in with 37 runs off 30 balls with the help of five fours and one six. After the dismissal of Marsh and Finch, Renegades failed to get going in last five overs of the innings.

The team management will be hoping that Finch and Marsh continue their good form in this contest. Shaun Marsh is currently franchise’s leading run-scorer so far in this competition with 134 runs at a strike rate of 132.67.

The biggest letdown has been the form of wicket-keeper Sam Harper, who has struggled to make runs for the side at the top of the innings. In three matches, Harper has only scored 54 runs at an average of 18.00.

Marcus Harris, Daniel Christian and Tom Cooper will be the given the task of delivering quick runs for the side in the later stages of the innings.

In the bowling department, the side will be depending on the likes of Kane Richardson, Cameron Boyce and Tom Cooper to make crucial breakthroughs. Tom Cooper was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets to his name.

Melbourne Renegades Predicted Playing XI:

Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch (c), Kane Richardson, Daniel Christian, Harry Gurney, Tom Cooper, Marcus Harris, Cameron Boyce, Beau Webster, Richard Gleeson, Sam Harper (wk)
