The Sydney Thunder face the winless Melbourne Renegades at the Manuka Oval in the 2019/20 BBL on Wednesday. The Thunder are tipped to hand the Renegades their 10th defeat of the season.

Opening Thunder batsmen, Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja have shown some form recently and are backed in the best batsman and batsman match runs markets respectively.

Sydney Thunder Form & Team News


Sydney Thunder have been up and down this season but are still in the mix for the playoff places. Their last match ended in a four wicket victory over the Hobart Hurricanes in Sydney.

The Hurricanes scored 162 runs but Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales put on a 96-run opening partnership to take the came away from the visitors. They both deserve to be backed once again against a Renegades side lacking any sort of confidence.

Hales is priced at $3.75 to be the Thunder’s best batsman while Khawaja can be backed at $1.83 to score over 23.5 runs. The Sydney Thunder are comfortable favourites at $1.66 to win.

Melbourne Renegades Form & Team News


The Melbourne Renegades have lost all nine BBL matches this season, their last being against the Adelaide Strikers. After restricting the Strikers to 173 at the Adelaide Oval the Renegades horrible batting form continued as they were dismissed for 110 to lose by 63 runs.

Since the departure of Aaron Finch to international duty the Renegades have had a serious lack of reliable runs and it’s difficult to see where the runs will come from now.

The Renegades can be backed as underdogs at $2.30 to get their first win of the season.

Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Renegades Match Up


Sydney Thunder’s top four have all found some form in recent matches and getting through them will be key for the Melbourne Renegades. Neither the Renengades batting or bowling has been good enough this season but the bowlers will have to produce the goods if they have any hope of getting their first victory.
