Head To Head


The Adelaide Strikers have won the last four Big Bash matches in a row against the Melbourne Renegades during a dominant spell. The last two have been comprehensive 63-run and 60-run wins.

At the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday, the Strikers posted 171/5 with Jake Weatherald top scored with 51 and Ryan Gibson struck 43 not out from 31 balls. The Renegades suffered another capitulation, being dismissed for 111.

Adelaide Strikers Form


The Adelaide Strikers bounced back from successive defeats in the win over the Renegades earlier in the week. They now sit with four wins and four losses from the opening eight games.

It was an impressive team effort to get the better of the Renegades by 60 runs with contributions with the bat and the ball from a number of players.

Matt Renshaw (35) and Alex Carey (24) weathered things early, allowing Jack Weatherald (51) and Ryan Gibson (43 not out) to explode late in the innings to get the Strikers to 171/5.

Peter Siddle (3/16) and Wes Agar (3/23) starred with the ball along with Danny Briggs (2/17) as the Renegades were bowled out for 111 with five balls remaining. 

Strikers Team News


Harry Conway came into the Adelaide bowling line-up for the first time this season and took 1/19 for the Strikers. Daniel Worrall was the man to drop out and Adelaide look likely to name an unchanged side.

Melbourne Renegades Form


Melbourne Renegades are rooted to the foot of the BBL table after a seventh straight loss. It has all been downhill for the Gades since winning their opening game of the season against the Perth Scorchers.

They failed to build on early promise with the ball against the Strikers on Tuesday, allowing Adelaide over the leash to get to 171. Bowlers Kane Richardson (2/38) and Imad Wasim (2/19) led the way.

From the minute captain Aaron Finch was dismissed for a first ball duck, the Renegades pursuit of 172 always looked unlikely to come off.

Sam Harper (31) and Mackenzie Harvey (34) gave early hope, but from 67/1 the Renegades lost nine wickets for 44 runs to be bowled out for the fourth time this season.

Renegades Team News


Rilee Rossouw and Shaun Marsh were big losses from the Renegades batting line-up in the last game. Both are still out, the former with injury and the latter following the birth of his third child.

Youngsters Jake Fraser-McGurk and Mackenzie Harvey came in and showed signs of ability. Both will get their chance against with the Renegades short on numbers. Will Sutherland is a chance to return to the starting line-up.
