The defending champions Adelaide Strikers started the campaign with a big win over the Brisbane Heat in the tournament opener. They will now be up against the Melbourne Renegades in their first home game. The Strikers remained unbeaten throughout the previous edition of the tournament at their home ground. They won all six matches they played at the Adelaide Oval winning five of them while defending totals.

Renegades started the new season in a similar fashion as the Strikers winning the first game by outplaying the opposition with the ball. The Renegades have missed a couple of key batsmen due to Australia’s home Test series against India but have strengthened their bowling. The Strikers also be missing their captain Travis Head for the complete season. Peter Siddle, who featured in the team’s first match, will be joining the national squad ahead of the second game.

Match Details:

The 6th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) will be played between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades at the Adelaide Oval.

The match starts at 6:45 PM local time (8:15 AM GMT) (1:45 PM IST).

The game will be live on Sony SIX and Sony SIX HD. Streaming available on Sony Liv.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Adelaide Oval is quite an uncertainty as it hosted six matches last season with the first three producing scores between 140 and 160 while the last three games witnessed 170+ totals. Five of the six matches in the last season were won teams batting first. The record of teams defending a total is mostly due to the way the Strikers performed at their home venue.

Squads:

Adelaide Strikers:

Colin Ingram (C), Alex Carey, Rashid Khan, Ben Laughlin, Jake Lehmann, Harry Nielsen, Michael Neser, Liam O’Connor, Matthew Short, Billy Stanlake, Cameron Valente, Jake Weatherald, Jonathan Wells.

Melbourne Renegades:

Tom Cooper (C), Dan Christian, Jack Wildermuth, Tim Ludeman, Kane Richardson, Sam Harper, Cameron White, Mohammad Nabi, Will Sutherland, Kelvin Smith, Cameron Boyce, Usman Shinwari, Joe Mennie.

Probable XI:

Adelaide Strikers:

Colin Ingram (C), Alex Carey, Jake Weatherald, Jake Lehmann, Jonathan Wells, Michael Neser, Rashid Khan, Ben Laughlin, Matthew Short, Cameron Valente, Billy Stanlake.

Melbourne Renegades:

Tom Cooper (C), Dan Christian, Jack Wildermuth, Tim Ludeman, Kane Richardson, Sam Harper, Cameron White, Mohammad Nabi, Will Sutherland, Kelvin Smith, Cameron Boyce, Usman Shinwari, Joe Mennie.

Power Picks:

Matthew Short of the Strikers and Jack Wildermuth of Renegades have been useful all-rounders. Short covers up the duties of the 2nd spinner and contributes with the bat while Wildermuth is expected to bat in the top three for his team along-side his medium-pace bowling.

Best Playing XI:

Alex Carey, Cameron White, Colin Ingram, Tom Cooper, Jonathan Wells, Daniel Christian, Matthew Short, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Usman Khan, Billy Stanlake.

Risky Playing XI:

Alex Carey, Coin Ingram, Tom Cooper, Jake Weatherald, Sam Harper, Daniel Christian, Matthew Short (VC), Jack Wildermuth (C), Rashid Khan, Kane Richardson, Cameron Boyce.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Batting in the top, Alex Carey and Colin Ingram have higher chances of making most with the ball. The likes of Rashid Khan and Daniel Christian are in form with both bat and ball in the recent matches. Mohammad Nabi will be a handy player if used more in the powerplay with the ball.

Expert Advice:

Only one of Jake Weatherald and Cameron White can be picked in the team as both the players are with high price tags and will block a player from the all-rounders’ category. Weatherland could be the player to miss as Renegades are expected to start with off-spin from Nabi or Cooper.

Probable Winners:

Adelaide Strikers are expected to continue their winning streak at their home venue Adelaide Oval.
