Betting Tips
  • Shaun Marsh top scored for Melbourne Renegades in their defeat to Sydney Sixers on Tuesday. The experienced batter has been in good form since returning to the side and is our pick for their highest run scorer in this match. Kane Richardson has 18 wickets in the tournament and is a strong choice for Melbourne Renegades’ top wicket taker against Melbourne Stars.
  • Joe Clarke should return to the top of the order in this game where he has been in fine form. He is our tip for Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Renegades. With the ball, Haris Rauf continues to take wickets in the tournament and is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We are backing keeper-batter Joe Clarke to have an impact on the game with the gloves and the bat. He is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

MLR Team News

The Renegades have shuffled their batting order a few times in recent games and currently have Jake Fraser-McGurk opening with Aaron Finch. Shaun Marsh and Mackenzie Harvey have been their best batters but will be in the middle-order. There are no injury worries in the squad.

MLR Key Players

  • Shaun Marsh - The left-handed top order batter has been one of the few bright spots for the Melbourne Renegades since he returned from injury.
  • Kane Richardson - The pace bowler filled in for Nic Maddinson as skipper earlier in the month and is always a wicket taking option.
  • Zahir Khan - The Afghan left-arm wrist spinner has been disappointing in the tournament so far but he should be able to cause problems against a low in confidence Melbourne Stars batting line-up.

MLR Team Form

No Renegades have lost their last two matches and are two points from the foot of the table.

Melbourne Renegades Predicted Playing 11

Jake Fraser-McGurk, Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Nic Maddinson (c), Mackenzie Harvey, Sam Harper (wk), Will Sutherland, Cameron Boyce, Kane Richardson, Josh Lalor, Zahir Khan.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

MLS Team News

Glenn Maxwell returned from isolation and came back into the Melbourne Stars side for their defeat to top of the table Perth Scorchers on Tuesday. We expect him to resume captaincy duties for this derby game with Adam Zampa concentrating on his bowling.

MLS Key Players

  • Joe Clarke - The keeper-batter was struggling with fatigue after fielding for 20 overs and batted down the order against Perth Scorchers. He has four successive half-centuries as an opener in the BBL 2021-22.
  • Glenn Maxwell - The batting all-rounder played only as a batter against Perth Scorchers but should be fit enough to contribute in both disciplines in this game.
  • Haris Rauf - The Pakistan pace bowler is not afraid of conceding runs and as a result is always likely to pick up a couple of wickets.

MLS Team Form

The Stars have lost three of their last four matches in the BBL but may well have turned a corner with their top players back to full fitness.

Melbourne Stars Predicted Playing 11

Joe Clarke, Beau Webster, Nick Larkin, Joe Burns, Glenn Maxwell, Hilton Cartwright, Sam Rainbird, Qais Ahmad, Adam Zampa (c), Haris Rauf, Brody Couch
