Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers Match Pitch Report
Fast bowlers get good help in Docklands Stadium. The pitch of this stadium is a fast pitch, due to which fast bowlers get help at the beginning of the match, after that the batsmen can easily score runs on this pitch.
What to expect:
Melbourne Renegades: Nic Maddinson’s side is in deep trouble. They went down by 13 runs in their last game against the Perth Scorchers. They lost the game from a position of strength, and it would hurt the players. They must win this game to make it to the playoffs, and Maddinson would expect a better show from his players.
Quinton de Kock and Joe Clarke offered a good start in the last game, and the side will expect a similar show. Shaun Marsh also played well, but the side will need runs from Jake Fraser-McGurk and Nic Maddinson. The lower middle order hasn’t delivered the goods, and the side will expect a good show from Jonathan Wells, Tom Rogers, and Will Sutherland.
The bowling attack has an additional responsibility as the batsmen haven’t been at their best. The side will need early strikes from Tom Rogers and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa are experienced bowlers, and the side will expect a good show from them. Sutherland adds variety to this attack, and his role will be crucial.
Melbourne Renegades Key Players
- Quinton de Kock- the keeper-batter is yet to produce a big score in BBL 2023-24 but he has an excellent T20 record with 9093 runs in this format.
- Shaun Marsh- the vastly experienced left-hander showed that he still has plenty of talent and ability with 59 runs from 36 balls against Perth Scorchers.
- Tom Rogers– the right-arm medium-fast bowler had a slow start to this tournament but dismissed Zak Crawley, Josh Inglis, and Nick Hobson in the last game.
- Will Sutherland- the 24-year-old all-rounder had gone wicketless in successive games before taking three wickets during the 19th over on Boxing Day.
Probable XI: Quinton de Kock(w), Joe Clarke, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Shaun Marsh, Nic Maddinson(c), Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Melbourne Renegades Squad: Quinton de Kock(w), Joe Clarke, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Shaun Marsh, Nic Maddinson(c), Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Peter Siddle, Aaron Finch, Mackenzie Harvey, Harry Dixon, Ruwantha Kellepotha, Fergus O Neill
Adelaide Strikers: Matthew Short’s side comes into this game with a loss. It was a heart-breaking defeat for the side against the Sydney Sixers, where they fell short by a run. The Strikers captain would like to put this performance behind them and look to get the campaign back on track. Their opponents haven’t been in great form, and Short would look to exploit that.
Matthew Short and D’Arcy Short form a formidable opening pair, and the side will need a good start. Chris Lynn looked good in the last game and will aim to build partnerships with Jake Weatherald and Adam Hose in the middle order. Jamie Overton, James Bazley, and Harry Nielsen will look to do the heavy lifting in the lower middle order.
The side will look for a good start with the new ball from Short and David Payne, who will look to exploit the weaknesses in the Renegades’ batting line-up. Wes Agar and Overton must bowl tight spells and pick wickets in the middle overs. The side would like to see a good performance from Cameron Boyce and Bazley in the supporting roles.
Adelaide Strikers Key Players
- Matthew Short- the skipper is enjoying another BBL tournament. After a bumper season of runs last year he hit another three fours and two sixes in the last fixture.
- Chris Lynn- the experienced top-order batter was in vintage form with a quick-fire 37 runs from only 17 balls in the defeat against Sydney Sixers.
- Jamie Overton- the England international stood out with both bat and ball in the last game. He hit 31 not out as well as taking two wickets in the fifth over.
- David Payne- the left-arm pace bowler added another wicket to his tally of T20 dismissals and we can expect him to enjoy bowling on this pitch.
Probable XI: D Arcy Short, Matthew Short(c), Chris Lynn, Jake Weatherald, Adam Hose, Jamie Overton, James Bazley, Harry Nielsen(w), Wes Agar, David Payne, Cameron Boyce
Adelaide Strikers Squad: D Arcy Short, Matthew Short(c), Chris Lynn, Jake Weatherald, Adam Hose, Jamie Overton, James Bazley, Harry Nielsen(w), Wes Agar, David Payne, Cameron Boyce, Ben Manenti, Brendan Doggett, Henry Thornton

Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers Match Prediction
Both of these sides would have hoped to have more points on the board at this stage of the competition but it is Melbourne Renegades who have the most issues to deal with. They are yet to win and have looked unable to put together a combined batting and bowling performance. Adelaide Strikers lost their last game but we are backing them to return to winning ways in this game.
We expect the Adelaide Strikers to win this match.

Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, and Will Sutherland for the Melbourne Renegades. Right-arm fast-medium bowler Richardson has been a good performer at the international and a strong player at the domestic level for many years and has begun this tournament with consistent wickets. Rogers had a brilliant campaign with the ball last year and will enjoy bowling on this pitch.
With the ball, David Payne, Matthew Short, and Jamie Overton are our selections for Adelaide Strikers. Overton has become a real top T20 bowler over recent seasons and he will get bounce and movement off this wicket in Melbourne. Short is predominantly a batter and followed up his 1/43 against Sydney Thunder before taking 2/13 against Sydney Sixers.
