Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Thunder, 22nd Match | Match Prediction and Analysis

The Thunder from Sydney are on an upward surge while the Renegades from Melbourne find themselves right at the base of the table. The Sydney team are on a winning spree, having notched up four consecutive wins after their opening day loss to the Hurricanes. On the other hand, the Renegades have found themselves going in the opposite direction – a win in their first game followed by four successive losses. More appallingly, they have found ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, as they did in their last game, against the Sixers. The two teams met on the Boxing day and the result was an embarrassment for the Renegades – bowled out for 80 in a chase of 210. Batting has been a let-down for Aaron Finch’s men, something they need to work on if they’re to stop the bleeding of losses. On the other hand, Thunder seemed well covered and should start favourites once again.

Weather Report

There is no rain predicted for the match day and so we should have no interruptions. The pitch is going to be a bit slower than the previous match and we think the spinners are going to have more of a say.

Pitch Report

It’s a slow wicket thus spinners have a major role to play. However, there are plenty of run scoring opportunities as well.
