The 18th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 will be played between Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers at the Carrara Oval in Queensland.
This match will start at 12:40 PM IST (5:10 PM local). It will be live on Sony Sports Network and can be streamed live on Sony LIV.
The Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers will meet each other for the second time in the ongoing BBL season.

The Sixers are in a brilliant position in the points table with three wins from four matches.
The Renegades, on the other hand, are struggling with only a solitary win which came in their opening game of the season. Since then they have lost three back-to-back matches. They are coming off a another huge defeat by 129 runs against the Sydney Thunder. Renegades were bundled out for just 80 runs chasing 210 and their batting will have to step up big time to have any chance to beat the in-form Sixers.
