Hello and welcome to our REN vs SIX Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers will play against each other in the 18th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Carrara Oval, Queensland.
The last season’s form has been haunting Melbourne Renegades as they have won only one out of four matches and are currently at the 7th position on the points table with a total of 4 points. They lost their last game by a massive margin of 129 runs.
Opening batsman Shaun Marsh once failed to provide a good start, and skipper Aaron Finch has also not played a big inning so far this season. Except for one match, Sam Harper and Rilee Rossouw have not been able to score runs in the middle order.
The remaining players have also not been able to perform as per the expectations so far this season. As a result, this is the second time that Renegades have lost by such a massive margin in just four matches.
Even bowlers have not been performing up to the mark, which has been a significant concern for the team. Kane Richardson is the only bowler in the team who has been consistently picking up wickets in every match. The other bowlers have also performed well, but they have lacked consistency.
Renegades need to improve their performance on the whole before it’s too late and need to start winning matches from now on or else it will be tough for them in the future.
The Sydney Sixers are having a great time so far as they have won 3 out of 4 matches and are currently at the 1st position on the points table with a total of 12 points. In the last game, Sydney Sixers performed brilliantly and won the match by just one wicket.
Josh Philippe has been performing decently, but his opening partner Jack Edwards has been out for a duck twice in a row this season and is struggling with his form. James Vince has been performing decently so far, and he is yet to play a big inning this season.
But their skipper Daniel Hughes has been performing exceptionally well from the last two matches and was the main reason for the previous game’s win. Dan Christian and Jordan Silk have also been performing their roles in the middle-order brilliantly.
Jason Holder and Carlos Braithwaite have been providing the required finish with their batting in the lower middle-order.
The bowlers also have been performing well and complementing their batsmen very well. Steve O’Keefe and Ben Dwarshuis have been the most consistent bowlers in picking up wickets. Jason Holder, Gurinder Sandhu, Ben Manenti, Braithwaite had also managed to pick up wickets when it was required for the team.
Sixer would be very high on confidence after their consecutive wins, and they appear to be one of the strongest teams so far in this season.
