MLR vs ADS Betting Tips

  • Quinton de Kock hit three fours and one six at the top of the order in the last game and the South African is our pick for Melbourne Renegades’ highest run scorer in this match. Tom Rogers has taken 5 wickets from the last two games and he is a strong choice for Melbourne Renegades’ top wicket taker against Adelaide Strikers.
  • Matthew Short hit 55 runs at the top of the order in the last game and he is our tip for Adelaide Strikers’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Renegades. Jamie Overton took 3/23 from 4 overs in Match 11 and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Adelaide Strikers’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • With successive half-centuries, Matthew Short is in fine form. He is our selection to hit over 31.5 runs in this game.

REN vs STR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2023

Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers go head to head on Friday in Match 18 of the 2023-24 Big Bash League. The Renegades are still looking for their first victory of this campaign and were beaten by Perth Scorchers on Boxing Day. The Strikers have played two with one win and one loss so far. Read on as we preview this evening match. The game begins at the Docklands Stadium at 19:15 local time. 

Melbourne Renegades had a strong season last year in the BBL but have returned to their poor form from previous campaigns in this 2023-24 competition. This looks like being another tough contest for the Renegades against a strong Strikers.

Adelaide Strikers went down to a defeat in their last game but there were positive signs in their performance. We expect them to have enough quality with both bat and ball in this match to get another win against Melbourne Renegades.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

REN Team News

No matter what selection of players that Melbourne Renegades have gone with so far in the tournament, they are still looking for their first win. Harry Dixon, Ruwantha Kellapotha and Aaron Finch have all been added to the squad for this game but it remains to be seen if any will be selected for this match.

REN Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock- the keeper-batter is yet to produce a big score in BBL 2023-24 but he has an excellent T20 record with 9093 runs in this format.
  • Shaun Marsh- the vastly experienced left-hander showed that he still has plenty of talent and ability with 59 runs from 36 balls against Perth Scorchers.
  • Tom Rogers- the right-arm medium fast bowler had a slow start to this tournament but dismissed Zak Crawley, Josh Inglis and Nick Hobson in the last game.
  • Will Sutherland- the 24 year old all-rounder had gone wicketless in successive games before taking three wickets during the 19th over on Boxing Day.
  • Jake Fraser-McGurk - Fraser-McGurk is currently the leading run scorer for the Renegades with 105 runs scored at an aggressive strike rate of 205.88. He will be a key batsman in this line-up in the middle order.

REN Team Form

Melbourne Renegades have already lost four matches in this campaign with the other game a no-result.

Adelaide Strikers Team News & Playing 11

STR Team News

The Strikers have been unfortunate with the scheduling and the weather which means they are currently playing catch-up in the tournament. No injuries have been reported by the team management and we are not anticippating changes for this game.

STR Key Players

  • Matthew Short- the skipper is enjoying another BBL tournament. After a bumper season of runs last year he hit another three fours and two sixes in the last fixture.
  • Chris Lynn- the experienced top order batter was in vintage form with a quick-fire 37 runs from only 17 balls in the defeat against Sydney Sixers.
  • Jamie Overton- the England international stood out with both bat and ball in the last game. He hit 31 not out as well as taking two wickets in the fifth over.
  • David Payne- the left-arm pace bowler added another wicket to his tally of T20 dismissals and we can expect him to enjoy bowling on this pitch.
  • D’Arcy Short - D’Arcy Short has scored 69 runs in 2 matches and he also comes as a handy bowler as well. He will be among the key batters for the Strikers in this match.

STR Team Form

Adelaide Strikers have picked up only one victory in the tournament so far and come into this game after losing their last clash.

Who will win Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers T20 Match?

Both teams have some top quality T20 players to choose from in their squads but it is Melbourne Renegades who are in very poor form. We have Adelaide Strikers as the top team for this game.

REN vs STR Top Team Batsmen

Shuan Marsh, Quinton de Kock and Joe Clarke are our batting tips for Melbourne Renegades. English top order batter Clarke has an excellent T20 and BBL record with a top score of 136 in this format. de Kock was in excellent form during the 2023 Cricket World Cup and has been focusing on white ball cricket for many years which suits his naturally aggressive game.

For Adelaide Strikers, Matthew Short, Chris Lynn and Jake Weatherald are our batting picks. Short has been one of the most consistent batters in the BBL over the last two seasons and he is relishing the leadership role in the side. Weatherald has now scored over 2000 T20 runs with a top score of 115 in this format. He has gone beyond 50 on 14 occasions in T20s.

REN vs STR Top Team Bowlers

Our bowling tips are Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson and Will Sutherland for Melbourne Renegades. Right arm fast medium bowler Richardson has been a good performer at international and a strong player at domestic level for many years and has begun this tournament with consistent wickets. Rogers had a brilliant campaign with the ball last year and will enjoy bowling on this pitch.

With the ball, David Payne, Matthew Short and Jamie Overton are our selections for Adelaide Strikers. Overton has become a real top T20 bowler over recent seasons and he will get bounce and movement off this wicket in Melbourne. Short is predominantly a batter and followed up his 1/43 against Sydney Thunder before taking 2/13 against Sydney Sixers.

🏆 Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers Prediction

Both of these sides would have hoped to have more points on the board at this stage of the competition but it is Melbourne Renegades who have the most issues to deal with. They are yet to win and have looked unable to put together a combined batting and bowling performance. Adelaide Strikers lost their last game but we are backing them to return to winning ways in this game.
