MLR vs ADS Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Time is running out for Melbourne Renegades and even though they’re not completely out of the tournament, one more loss and all their hopes of making it through to the playoffs will be shattered.

With Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers starting to find some form, it’s going to be a stiff fight for the last two spots for the playoffs and Adelaide Strikers will know this. A win against a weak Melbourne Renegades will place them nicely in the points table.

Read our preview as Melbourne Renegades take on Adelaide Strikers in the 29th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at Adelaide Oval and is scheduled to begin at 6:45 local time.

Melbourne Renegades finished last in the previous edition of the Big Bash League and things are not looking bright for this season as well.

They’ve now lost 6 games in a row and no face a must win situation against Adelaide Strikers.

They were bowled out for 89 against Perth Scorchers in the last match. This was the third instance of them getting bowled out for a score under 90 which sums up their campaign in the BBL 2020-21.

Shaun Marsh has batted well but other players like Aaron Finch, Sam Harper, Rilee Rossouw, Beau Webster, Mohammed Nabi are having a nightmarish tournament with the bat. Also, Marsh and Roussow won’t be available which is a massive blow to Finch and co.

The bowlers have performed far batter than their batsmen but still they don’t seem to have the cunningness like some other teams in the tournament.

Kane Richardson has bowled well in the last few games but he hasn’t been among the wickets. Josh Laylor have had few good outing but he’s not been consistent. Same can be said for Peter Hatzoglou.

Noor Ahmed hasn’t played much so his form cannot be judged but either-way, the kind of batting performances Renegades have delivered, even the best bowling line ups must have struggled to make them win.

It’s a very crucial game for Adelaide Strikers as a loss will make their situation very complicated. Alex Carey and Jake Weatherald have been their two best batsmen. Jonathan Wells also batted brilliantly in the last game. Phil Salt too have few good knocks under his belt. The performance of Matt Renshaw will be cause of concern though.

Rashid Khan bowled brilliantly in the last match and picked up 3 wickets. Strikers will hope that his ace spinner can deliver a similar performance against Renegades.

Other bowlers like Peter Siddle, Daniel Worrall, Wes Agar, Danny Briggs have also been pretty consistent throughout the tournament.

So overall, most of Adelaide Strikers batsmen are in some form, the only issues is that they haven’t delivered collective performance, something they’ll hope to do against Melbourne Renegades.

MLR vs ADS Toss Prediction

Adelaide is a slow wicket thus the ball might not come on to the bat nicely in the second inning. The skipper that wins the toss might want to bat.

Pitch Report 

Adelaide is more sort of a subcontinent wicket and the batsmen will enjoy batting here. In the second innings though, the pitch might get slower

Weather Report 

The weather will be clear with temperatures hovering around 20 degrees

Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers Prediction

Melbourne Renegades have been very poor in the tournament, losing their last 6 games. They have serious issues with their batting and now with Shaun Marsh and Riley Roussow unavailable, they’re expected to struggle even more. For us, Adelaide Strikers are favourites for this match.

Final Verdict

Hobart Hurricanes to beat Melbourne Stars at 2.0 on Bet365 and 1.95 on Betway

MLR vs ADS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Alex Carey at 9.5 is a terrific pick. Alex Carey is the top scorer for Adelaide Striker and is some good form. You can also back Sam Harper at 8.5. Harper too have played some decent knocks in the tournament.

  • Batsmen

    Aaron Finch at 10.5, Jake Weatherald at 9.5 and Jonathan Wells at 9.0 will be our batsmen. Jonathan played a good knock of 66 in the last match while Aaron Finch is a big match player. He’s not in good form but in a do or die game, he’s expected to come good for Renegades. Jake Weatherald has also been very consistent for the Strikers 

  • All rounder

    Mohammed Nabi at 9.0 and Jack Prestwidge at 8.5 will add depth to our team. These are the two best options available from this section. Mohammed Nabi, we all know is a class player while Prestwidge bowled well against Scorchers and picked up 2 wickets

  • Bowlers

    Rashid Khan at 9.5, Kane Richardson at 9.0, Daniel Worrall at 8.5 and Wes Agar at 8.5 will complete our team. Rashid Khan is coming back from a 3-fer in the last game while Richardson, Worrall and Agar have been decent for their respective teams.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Alex Carey will be our skipper while we’ll back Aaron Finch as his deputy.

MLR vs ADS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Jake Weatherald, Jonathan Wells, Aaron Finch (vc)

  • All Rounder:Mohammed Nabi, Jack Prestwidge

  • Wicket Keeper:Alex Carey (c), Sam Harper

  • Bowler:Rashid Khan, Kane Richardson, Daniel Worrall, Wes Agar
