Preview: Adelaide Strikers are set to take on Melbourne Renegades for the second time in BBL 2021 on December 9, 2021. In their recent meet, the Kane Richardson-led side outplayed the Strikers and registered a win in their opening game. Given that both the teams are missing on some star players, it’ll be interesting to see whether the Renegades overpower the Strikers yet again, or the Peter Siddle-led side makes a comeback.
Analysis: Melbourne Renegades, who finished at the bottom of the table in the last edition of BBL, had a good start to the tournament, as they won their opening game. Wicketkeeper batsman Sam Harper and Mackenzie Harvey are the top batting picks from the side, with the latter being a smart vice-captain choice. Additionally, all-rounder Mohammad Nabi and Will Sutherland can fetch good points from both the departments. Amongst the bowlers, Kane Richardson and Zahir Khan can be banked upon in fantasy.
On the other hand, Adelaide Sixers will aim to make a comeback in the upcoming game against the Renegades. Matthew Short and Jake Weatherald are the best picks from the side. Besides Peter Siddle, Rahid Khan and George Carton’s contribution from the bowling department can add to the fantasy points.
