Melbourne Renegades will be eyeing the second spot in the points table when they will be up against host Adelaide Strikers on January 10 (Tuesday) at Adelaide Oval. While Renegades are riding high on confidence with two back-to-back wins, Strikers also registered a comprehensive win in the last game against Hobart Hurricanes. Let’s look at the prediction for the upcoming fixture.
The surface at Adelaide Oval has been producing good competitive wickets and we can expect one hell of a blockbuster clash. The pitch has been a good batting wicket and yet another high-scoring clash should be expected on Tuesday.
Chris Lynn has been in top form for Strikers with 324 runs in eight matches at an average of 40.5 and a strike rate of 140.86. He has scored half-centuries in his last two innings. Matthew Short will be a player to watch out for as he smashed a brilliant century off just 59 deliveries. Adam Hose is yet another player who provides a lot of strength to Strikers' batting with a strike rate of 142.75.
Meanwhile, Marin Guptill is back in form at the right time, and with two 30-plus scores in the last two games, he will be looking forward to provide a much-needed start to his side. Wicketkeeper batter Sam Harper played a brilliant knock of 89 runs in just 48 deliveries.
Predicted Playing XI:
Ryan Gibson, AJ Hose, Thomas Kelly, CA Lynn, Colin de Grandhomme, MW Short(C), HJ Nielsen, WA Agar, CJ Boyce, Harry Conway, Henry Thornton
AJ Finch(C), MW Harvey, JW Wells, MJ Guptill, MS Harris, W Sutherland, Ruwantha Kellapotha, SB Harper, KW Richardson, T Rogers, Fawad Ahmed
There is no doubt that the upcoming fixture will produce a top-notch contest as both sides feature quality players in their squads. However, Melbourne Renegades are most likely to win the match owing to consistency from their players and collective performance from all the departments.
