Melbourne Renegades will lock horns with Adelaide Strikers in the 3rd match of the BBL 2021/22 on Tuesday. Both sides have won the title once and will be aiming to get their hands on the trophy for the second time. Melbourne Renegades had a dreadful tournament last year as they finished at the bottom of the standings with only 4 wins under their belt.

Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, missed out on the opportunity of making it to the playoffs last year by a slender margin. With 7 wins and 7 losses, they finished at the 5th spot in the standings with 28 points. Both sides weren’t up to their best in the last edition and are looking forward to making a strong impression from the start this year.
