Melbourne Renegades Preview

Melbourne Renegades will be hoping to get off the mark with a victory against Sydney Thunder. The side has lost nine matches on the bounce in this year’s competition and will be desperate to end their losing streak.

In their last fixture, Renegades delivered a dismal batting performance against Adelaide Strikers. Chasing 174 runs to win, the side was dismissed cheaply for 110 runs in 17.4 overs. Shaun Marsh and Beau Webster were the two batsmen to reach double figures in their innings for Renegades. The only positive from the game was performances from Samit Patil, Cameron Boyce and Beau Webster. Beau Webster was once again the lone performer with the bat for Renegades. He played well and finished the innings with the top-score of 49 runs off 33 balls with the help of four fours and two sixes.

For Melbourne Renegades, the responsibility in the batting department will be shared by the in-form duo of Shaun Marsh and Beau Webster to produce runs in this contest. In this year’s competition, Beau Webster leads the batting charts for Renegades with 319 runs in 9 outings at an average of 62.00, whereas Marsh has accumulated 310 runs in nine matches at an average of 35.44.

The likes of Mohammad Nabi, Tom Cooper and Daniel Christian have collectively failed to produce runs for the side in this year’s competition. The experienced middle-order trio will need to deliver decent scores for Renegades in order to put competitive totals on the board.

In the bowling department, the side will be relying on the spin trio of Samit Patel, Cameron Boyce and Mohammad Nabi to make crucial breakthroughs. Against Adelaide Strikers, the spinners bowled well and claimed one wicket each.

Melbourne Renegades Predicted Playing XI:

Daniel Christian (captain), Tom Cooper, Marcus Harris, Shaun Marsh, Samit Patel, Mohammad Nabi, Joe Mennie, Cameron Boyce, Jack Wildermuth, Beau Webster, Sam Harper (wk)
