Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades, 33rd Match | Match Prediction and Betting tips

The recent trend of back to back matches continues in the Big Bash League as the Adelaide Strikers and the Melbourne Renegades get ready to face off once more. The previous match ended with a heavy defeat being handed to the Melbourne Renegades. That was the seventh consecutive match that the Renegades have lost and things are looking for them. We are past the halfway mark in the tournament and both the teams will be feeling the crunch. The Adelaide Strikers are right in the middle of the league table and cannot afford a slip up here.

Adelaide Strikers have had a topsy-turvy season so far; they have shown patches of good form before suddenly slipping badly. Currently, they are at the 4th spot on the points table with 4 wins and 4 losses. They are looking for some consistency and a good win might help them get going. Adelaide will get that opportunity when they square-off against the bottom-placed Melbourne Renegades again whom they just beat in their previous match. With 7 losses and 1 win, the Renegades have been relegated to the last place and it seems as if the season has already slipped away from them. It will now take something special from them to get out of this mess.
