THU vs REN Dream11 Prediction & Player Stats: 14th Match | BBL 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our THU vs REN Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades will play against each other in the 14th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Sydney Thunder:

The Sydney Thunder have performed decently so far as they have won 2 out of 3 matches and are currently at 5th position on the points table with a total of 7 points. In the last game, Sydney Thunder performed well and won the match comfortably by seven wickets.

Alex Hales has disappointed once again as he got for a duck, and this his second consecutive duck for him in 3 matches. Khawaja batted decently but was very slow in his approach and is struggling to score runs this season. Skipper Ferguson batted well and made sure his team won the match.

Oliver Davies and Ben Cutting played a quick inning, which helped the team sail over the victory line comfortably.

All the bowlers performed well by either controlling the flow of runs or by picking up wickets. Daniel Sams was a little expensive but managed to pick up a wicket, and the remaining bowlers bowled good line and lengths.

Thunder has won their last two matches, and they would want to continue their streak by winning against the Renegades, and they have a perfect chance.

Melbourne Renegades:

The last season’s form has been haunting Melbourne Renegades as they have won only one out of three matches and are currently at the 6th position on the points table with a total of 4 points. They lost their game by six wickets.

Opening batsman Shaun Marsh failed to provide a good start in this match also, and in the absence of Aaron Finch, Fraser-McGurk opened the innings, and he too got out early. Sam Harper finally appeared to be back in form as he scored a half-century, and he was well accompanied by Rilee Rossouw, who also scored a fifty.

In the end, Nabi and Webster added a few runs and helped the Renegades to reach a decent total.

The bowlers have not been performing up to the mark, which has been a significant concern for the team. Josh Lalor and Kane Richardson managed to pick up a wicket but could not control the flow of runs. If the bowlers continue like this, it is a tough road ahead for the Renegades.

Renegades need to try once again something new that would help them to perform better in further matches.
