Manuka Oval, Canberra, Australia

Sydney Thunder has played some good cricket in the ongoing Big Bash League and has lost just one match out of three. But they are still in the 5th position on the points table. If we talk about their recent form they have a golden chance to move up the ladder when they take on Melbourne Renegades in their next match. The Renegades have struggled more in this season as they are positioned at 6th with one win out of three and it will take a great performance from them to take down an in-form Sydney Thunder. Remember cricket is unpredictable and strange things have happened in this format and the Renegades might well prove to be a tough nut to crack for the opponent.
