We are almost at the halfway mark in the Big Bash League 2020 and things are getting increasingly interesting with every passing match. A win for Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers in the respective last matches has set the ball rolling in the bottom half of the points table as well.
Melbourne Renegades will be hoping for a similar result in their upcoming match wherein they meet Adelaide Strikers. The Strikers just dropped out of the top-four with Melbourne Stars posting a win over Hobart Hurricanes. The tournament is getting exciting and the stakes are getting higher with every passing match. This match is scheduled to be played at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide, on 5th January 2021.
Melbourne Renegades finished at the bottom spot last year and they seem to be aiming for the wooden spoon yet again. Out of seven matches played, the Renegades have managed to find success in only one. They are at the bottom of the points table and their last loss damaged their dismal net run-rate even further.
Chasing a total of 185 against Perth Scorchers, Renegades never looked in control and were bowled out for just 89. It can be said that the batting has been their Achilles' heel, but the fact that they have conceded more than 200 twice in seven matches speaks volumes about their bowlers' performance as well. Because of their poor all-around performance, the Renegades have now suffered the three largest defeats in Big Bash history - all of those coming in a span of a few weeks.
Given their team combination on paper, its hard to imagine them getting the kind of beating they have. They have a terrific batting unit consisting of Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch, Rilee Rossouw, and Mohammad Nabi, but surprisingly they have been the team to score least in the tournament so far. With the bowling, as well, they have Kane Richardson, Imad Wasim, and Josh Lalor available at their disposal.
In the upcoming game, the Renegades will be without Shaun Marsh and Rilee Rossouw, which is a big setback for the already struggling team. They'd hope that the people replacing them are able to spark some brilliance into the playing eleven. We expect Mackenzie Harvey and Jake Fraser McGurk to come in to replace the duo. Renegades badly need their experienced players to step-up and if they can do that, beating Renegades will be a tough ask.
Aaron Finch, Noor Ahmad, Jake Fraser McGurk, Sam Harper, Mackenzie Harvey, Josh Lalor, Mohammad Nabi, Jack Prestwidge, KW Richardson, SI Wasim, BJ Webster.
Just around a few days ago, the Strikers were casually flirting with the top of the table slot, but now with a couple of back to back losses, they are out of the top four. Their stay outside the top-four may well turn out to be short-lived should they find success in the upcoming contest. As it stands, they are placed at the fifth spot with 13 points to their name.
Adelaide Strikers have so far had some troubles with consistency in their batting unit. Jake Weatherald and Philip Salt have both struggled to score consistently and the Strikers' camp would want them to come good as we move towards the business end of the tournament. With Carey back in the playing eleven, their batting unit certainly looks stronger. Given the consistency issues, we might see them experiment with their opening pair by promoting Rasid Khan or Alex Carey to the top. It is unexpected but certainly something that is in the picture.
The Strikers draw their strength from their bowling unit that consists of experienced T20 stars in Danny Briggs, Rashid Khan, Peter Siddle, and Wesley Agar. If their batsmen can put even a competitive total on the board, the Strikers are capable of squeezing opposition out of the match.
Philip Salt, Matt Renshaw, Alex Carey, JW Wells, Jake Weatherald, Ryan Gibson, Rashid Khan, Danny Briggs, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle, Harry Conway.
Melbourne Renegades have a mystery to solve. Their skipper, Aaron Finch, is yet to find form in this edition of Big Bash League. Finch was in an immaculate form before BBL began and is now looking completely out of sorts. Renegades' batting, in turn, just replicating the performance of their skipper. Adelaide Strikers too have struggled to score runs, but their bowlers have ensured that their weaknesses are not wide and truly apparent. With a terrific bowling unit and a decent batting lineup, Adelaide Strikers could prove to be a tough nut to crack especially for out-of-sorts Melbourne Renegades. We are backing Strikers to win this all-important fixture.
