Hello and welcome to our STR vs REN Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades will play against each other in the 33rd match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at The Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.
They have managed to win four matches out of the eight played so far and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 17 points. They won their last game comfortably by 60 runs.
The opening batsman, Phil Salt has appeared to be struggling in the last few matches, and his opening partner Matt Renshaw after so many bad performances finally managed to play a decent inning in the previous game. Alex Carey also played a couple of good innings so far but appeared to be a little slow in his approach.
Jake Weatherald has been batting brilliantly at his new batting position, and Ryan Gibson also batted well in the last match, but Jon Wells who is a good striker of the ball has not been able to score runs quickly and consistently.
After a bad bowling performance, the Strikers’ bowlers are back to form as they bowled brilliantly in the last match and got the team all-out. They have been consistently picking up wickets in every game and three of their bowlers Wes Agar, Peter Siddle, and Rashid Khan are among the top five wicket-takers so far this season.
Strikers have been performing decently in their bowling department and have also appeared to be getting better in their batting. If Strikers continue the same batting performance, they have a perfect chance of moving up in the points table.
The Melbourne Renegades are having a very tough time this season also as they have won only one out of eight matches and are currently at the bottom of the points table with a total of 5 points. They lost their last game by a significant margin of 60 runs.
Skipper Aaron Finch has also been batting decently but has not been able to play a big inning so far and was out for a duck in the last match. Opening batsman Shaun Marsh except for a couple of knocks appeared to be struggling and did not play the previous game due to injury. The new opener Mackenzie played a decent inning in the last match.
After struggling in the last few matches, Sam Harper finally managed to put up a decent performance. Mohammad Nabi and another all-rounder Imad Wasim have not been able to play big shots down the order, which has been one of the team’s major concerns.
The bowlers have not been able to perform up to the mark so far this season except for one or two matches. Only Kane Richardson has put up some decent performances so far, and in the last game, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Nabi also bowled well picking up some wickets.
Renegades need to improve their performance on the whole, and they need to win every match from here to keep their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs.
