Predicted XI: Martin Guptill, Nic Maddinson, Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Jono Wells, Peter Handscomb, Akeal Hosein, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Wednesday night time’s sport towards the Sixers was the one which received away for the Renegades.
Chasing simply 149 on a floor with a 55-metre boundary, Melbourne folded for the second sport in a row, bowled out for simply 115.
It’s a worrying pattern that harks again to latest seasons, so the Renegades can be decided to show issues round with the bat on this sport.
Fortuitously, they now have their finest batting line-up of the season on paper because of the additions of Martin Guptill and Shaun Marsh. Whereas neither managed to get their aspect throughout the road on Wednesday, each veterans can be higher for the run.
The type of Will Sutherland is one other constructive. After smashing 40 towards the Hurricanes, the rising star took 2-22 towards the Sixers, underlining his rounded skillset.
He can be a vital participant once more on Friday if the Renegades are to actual some revenge.
Predicted XI: Kurtis Patterson, Josh Phillipe, James Vince, Moises Henriques, Jordan Silk, Dan Christian, Hayden Kerr, Ben Dwarshuis, Sean Abbott, Jackson Chicken, Todd Murphy
Three straight wins have the Sixers on the cost, after a sluggish begin to BBL12.
As we’ve come to count on from the boys in magenta, it’s the bowlers doing a lot of the work, with contributions coming from all of the quicks and spinners.
Ben Dwarshuis led the best way in his return on Wednesday night time, taking 4-17 to dismantle the Renegades, however Jackson Chicken and Sean Abbott had been as damaging as ever.
Much more promising was the return to type of Josh Phillipe, who struck 55 off 40 on the high of the order to provide Sydney a quick begin. Extra can be required of Phillipe, Patterson and Vince if the Sixers are to go all the best way this season.
Nonetheless, the Sixers now have a run of momentum that they are going to be hoping to take care of down in Geelong.
If the Renegades are critical about taking part in finals in BBL12, they need to flip their batting woes round on this match.
Again-to-back scores of sub-120 are unacceptable, particularly from a batting group with a lot expertise.
Fortunately, the Sixers haven’t been essentially the most potent group with the bat both, so this may very well be one other low scoring affair.
Regardless of their latest failures, I actually just like the look of the present Renegades line-up, and it’s a matter of time earlier than one in every of their skilled hitters fires.
I additionally nonetheless have some doubts over the ageing Sydney squad.
As such, I’m backing the Renegades to get the factors on house soil.

Current tinkering with the Renegades line-up has boosted Sutherland’s function as a bowler. He took full benefit of this on Wednesday, snaring two wickets, and I count on him to interrupt by way of once more if related alternatives are afforded to him.
On Wednesday night time the primary dismissal of every innings was caught, and solely three of the 18 wickets for the night time weren’t taken on this method.
This wager saluted on Wednesday night time, and I fancy it once more. With the likes of Maddinson, Guptill, Finch and Sutherland, the Renegades have bundles of energy with confirmed six hitters. Then again, Sydney’s line-up is comprised of accumulators, who usually tend to work the ball than goal for the stands.
