Sydney Thunder Form

The Sydney Thunder took out their latest match in controversial fashion against the Perth Scorchers on Tuesday to make it two wins from three this season.

Following a massive edge to the keeper that was given not out, Usman Khawaja was the victim of heavy scrutiny. But that didn’t matter to the Thunder as they won by a convincing seven wickets.

Captain Callum Ferguson controlled the chase with an unbeaten 61, while was well supported by debutant Ollie Davies and Ben Cutting who both unleashed with some big hitting.

Thunder Team News

The Thunder aren’t expected to make many changes to their side ahead of their match against the Renegades.

Star bowler Daniel Sams has been playing well and has been well supported by recruit Ben Cutting, who has thrived in his move away from the Brisbane Heat.

Melbourne Renegades Form

After a massive win in their opening game of BBL10, the Renegades have struggled for form in two heavy defeats since.

Boasting the experienced Shaun Marsh at the top order, the Renegades have yet to get going with the bat. Marsh and young batsmen Jake Fraser-McGurk in particular have struggled for form.

Keeper Sam Harper was a lone shining light after a terrific innings in their last match against the Hurricanes, scoring 66 not out. 

That was more than the entire Renegades team scored in their record 145-run loss to the Sydney Sixers two games back.

Renegades Team News

The Renegades will be boosted by the likely return of captain Aaron Finch to provide support to Shaun Marsh at the top of the order.
