Carrara Stadium – Queensland, Australia
After starting off well Melbourne Renegades are having a frightful season and are positioned at 7 in the points table currently. They extremely need a few wins to climb up the points table. But things are not going to be easier for them as they face an in-form Sydney Thunder in the next game. Sydney has already beaten the Renegades earlier in this season with great ease and would be greedy to repeat that performance to move to the No.1 position.
The Melbourne Renegades are facing a terrible time in the BBL this season and stand at the bottom half of the points table. They have lost their last four matches, including their most recent one that they lost their way in the end after dominating for the majority.
This is not the best time then to come up against the in form team of the Big Bash so far, Sydney Thunder. With four wins out of five matches, Sydney Thunder has been exceptionally impressive and could go to the top of the ladder with a win in this match.
