Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Renegades | Match Prediction & betting tips
Sydney Thunder has played some good cricket in the ongoing Big Bash League and has lost just one match so far. Yet they find themselves in the 4th position on the points table. They will have a chance to move up the ladder when they take on Melbourne Renegades in their next clash. The Renegades have floundered of late and it will take quite a performance from them to take down an in-form Sydney Thunder. But stranger things have happened in this format and the Renegades might well prove to be a tough nut to crack for the Thunder.
