Betting Tips
  • Melbourne Renegades have a shaky batting line up. Shaun Marsh has been good but the rest of the batsmen are looking completely out of touch.
  • Stars will be very happy to see some runs from Nic Larkin, Hilton Cartwright and Andre Fletcher. It’ll take a lot of pressure away from Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell. They look a very dangerous team now.
  • Glen Maxwell, Adam Zampa and Zahir Khan will enjoy bowling on this wicket and will make life tough for the Renegades batting line up.

Our Prediction

Melbourne Stars are favourites to win

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

Melbourne Renegades suffered a big loss to Melbourne Stars in their previous match. It wasn’t much of a surprise though as the Renegades have been very poor throughout the tournament. With them out of contention for the playoffs, they’ll be looking to play some fearless cricket. 

Not much is at stake for the Renegades but for the Stars it’s a very crucial game. Can they make it two in two against the Renegades? Read our Preview and Melbourne Renegades take on Melbourne Stars in the 45th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Docklands Stadium and is set to get underway at 7:15 PM local time.

Well, there is not much to say about the performance of Melbourne Renegades. They’ve been very disappointing throughout the tournament and deserve all the criticism they’re getting.

The batting has been a big, big let down. If we leave out Shaun Marsh, we won’t find a single batsmen that has performed on a consistent basis. 

There have been few odd innings from Sam Harper, Beau Webster but they were never going to be sufficient. Aaron Finch himself has been a massive failure.

They just don’t seem to have enough quality in their batting department. Once Finch and Marsh are gone cheaply, they’ll struggle and that’s what has happened in the tournament.

The bowling has been doing ok but they’ve always been short of plenty of runs. So Renegades, if they want to pick up few consolation wins, they’ll need their batsmen to fire.

Melbourne Stars in the last few games seem to have found their mojo back. They’re coming back from two big wins and looks good to make it three in three. 

Their batting was an issue in the initial stages but now, with Nick Larkin, Nic Maddinson, Hilton Cartwright and Andre Fletcher also scoring runs, they look a very dangerous batting unit. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis have been in fine form throughout the tournament.

Stars are a spin heavy team and Azam Zampa, Zahir Khan and Glenn Maxwell are chocking the opposition with some tight bowling. Liam Hatcher and Billy Stanlake have been very good too.

All in all, Stars is a far better team than the Renegades and are expected to continue their winning run.

Official squad for Melbourne Renegades has not been announced yet. However, we don’t see them making too many changes in the playing XI. 

MLR Key Players

  • Shaun Marsh - Shaun Marsh has been Melbourne Renegades best batsmen. He’s their top scorer and will have to play a big knock if Renegades wants to get themself enough chance to beat the Stars
  • Sam Harper - Sam Harper was promoted to No 3 in the batting order and played a fine knock of 63. He has played few good knocks but hasn’t been able to do that consistently. Renegades need another good inning from him.

Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars Prediction

With players like Nic Larkin, Hilton Cartwright, Andre Fletcher also starting to score runs, they look a real force now. Maxwell and Stoinis are already in top form. As a bowling unit, Zampa and Zahir Khan has been a nemesis for their oppositions. 
For Renegades, their batting has been a big let down. They don’t seem have enough quality in their team and we think that they’ll once again struggle against the Stars

Final Verdict

Melbourne Stars to beat Melbourne Renegades at 1.57 on Bet365 and 1.50 on Betway

MLR vs MLS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Sam Harper at 8.5 can be backed from this section. This is the best pick available and played a solid knock of 63 in the last match

  • Batsmen

    Shaun Marsh at 9.5, Nic Larkin at 8.5 and Andre Fletcher at 8.5 will form our batting line up. 

    Fletcher can be destructive at the top and is a match winner on his day. Shaun Marsh has been very consistent for the Renegades while Nic Larkin has played really well in the last few matches. He scored a solid 43 in the last game as well

  • All rounder

    Marcus Stoinis at 10.5, Glen Maxwell at 10.5, Imad Wasim at 8.5 will be our all rounders.

     Maxwell and Stonis are the top top all rounders in the tournament. Stoinis is the leading run scorer of the Stars and is followed by Maxwell who’s been scintillating both with the bat and ball. Imad Wasim will be handy with his left arm spin on this wicket.

  • Bowlers

    Kane Richarson at 9.0, Adam Zampa at 9.0, Peter Hatzoglou at 9.0 and Zahir Khan at 8.5 forms a strong bowling unit. 

    Zampa and Zahir Khan have been the top most lethal weapons for the Stars while Richardson and Hatzoglou are the best bowlers for the Renegades.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Glenn Maxwell is our preferred captain while Shaun Marsh can be backed as his deputy 

MLR vs MLS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Shaun Marsh(vc), Andre Fletcher, Nic Larkin

  • All Rounder:Glenn Maxwell(C), Marcus Stoinis, Imad Wasim

  • Wicket Keeper:Sam Harper

  • Bowler:Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Zahir Khan, Peter Hatzoglou
