PREVIEW

 

Sydney Thunder are set to host the Melbourne Renegades for another exciting contest of the Big Bash League. Both the sides will take on each other at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. We are heading into the business end of the tournament and we will witness teams giving all they got to qualify for the next round. Thunder and Renegades would be eyeing to secure a position in the top four with only a handful of games to go.

Sydney Sixers are currently sitting on the fourth spot in the points table with 9 points in 9 matches. They have won four games and lost as many in this campaign so far. Their last match against the Heats was abandoned due to floodlights failure. Watson & Co rather felt cheated when they had to share one point each with the Brisbane side. The skipper Shane Watson scored the first century of this tournament in his last innings against Brisbane Heat.

Renegades are placed in the third position with 10 points as well. They have the same tally as their opponent but with a worse net run rate. Renegades have won five matches in their ten outings so far in this season. Aaron Finch has really been impressed a lot with his captaincy and tactical changes. Their last game against Melbourne Stars was a close contest even after putting just 121 runs on the board.
