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

Another stern challenge awaits Melbourne Renegades as they host Sydney Sixers for the 18th match of the Big Bash League on Tuesday. The match will be played at the Carrara Oval, Queensland and is scheduled to get underway at 5:10 PM local time.

Scores of 60 and 80 in two of their last two matches sums up the Melbourne Renegades performance in the tournament. Consequently, with a win and three losses, they’re placed at the bottom of the points table. They’ll be taking on the Sydney Sixers, who are on a roll with three wins in four games.

It’s not that Melbourne Renegades is bad as a batting unit. In Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch, they have one of the best openers. Sam Harper, Rilee Rossow, Beau Webster and Mohammed Nabi, all are quality batsmen but it’s not the names but the performances that’ll win you games.

Melbourne Renegades is definitely capable of beating the best sides but they’ll need collective performances from all their team members. The bowling too is not at it’s best with Will Sutherland, Peter Hatzoglou, Mohammed Nabi not bowling well. Kane Richarson looks like getting some of his form back but he’s far away from his peak. Overall, think are not looking good for Renegades at the moment. They definitely have the team to turn things around but against Sydney Sixers it won’t be easy. 

Daniel Hughes magnificent 96 helped Sydney Sixers clinch a magnificent win over Melbourne Stars. In their previous match against Renegades, it was the magic of Josh Philippe that helped Sixers propel to a mammoth 205. It has been a feature of Sydney Sixers in the tournament that they’ve been able to find one player that gets a very big score and other players can revolve around him. 

They included Daniel Christian, Jason Holder, and Carlos Brathwaite in the last match which gives them 6 genuine bowling options and adds a lot of depth in their batting. 

Steve oKeefe have been bowling pretty well and we expect the pitch to help him even more in the next game. Ben Manenti, Ben Dwarshius and plenty of all rounders make them a giant team that’ll be very hard to beat.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

MLR Team News

At the time of writing we didn’t get any update on the squad for Melbourne Renegades but we assume there won’t be much change in their playing XI. 

MLR  Key Players

  • Aaron Finch - The skipper needs to lead from the from in these testing times. Finch has been in really good form of late and Melbourne Renegades need every bit of that form to get their campaign back on track. 
  • Shaun Marsh - Shaun Marsh is their second best batsmen. He’s been very inconsistent in BBL 2020 and need to come good as Melbourne Renegades heavily depend on him in their batting
  • Kane Richardson - Kane Richardson in the last few games has looked decent. Melbourne Renegades will expect him to perform better and even pick up more wickets against Sydney Sixers.

MLR Team Form

Melbourne Renegades - Melbourne Renegades are having a torrid time in the tournament. They stared the tournament with a big win over Perth Scorchers but have lost all their match since then.

Melbourne Renegades Predicted Playing 11

Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch (c), Sam Harper (wk), Rilee Rossouw, Beau Webster, Mohammad Nabi, Imad Wasim, Will Sutherland, Kane Richardson, Zak Evans, Peter Hatzoglou

Sydney Sixers Team News & Playing 11

SYS Team News

Sydney Sixers played Daniel Christian, Jason Holder, and Carlos Brathwaite in the last game of BBL 2020. This adds a lot of balance to this team. They have six genuine bowling options while the batting stretches to no 8. This looks a very good team and we don’t expect them to change this winning combination.

SYS Key Players

  • Josh Phillippe - Josh Phillippe scored a brilliant 95 in his last outing against Melbourne Renegades. He’s actually looked pretty composed throughout the tournament. He’s a player to watch out in the next game.
  • Daniel Hughes - Daniel Hughes has been Sixers best batsmen in the tournament. He’s been very consistent and can be backed to carry on his good form.
  • Steve O Keefe - Steve O Keefe has bowled pretty well for Sixers. He’s been economical and have plenty of wickets against his name as well. The pitch is expected to aid the skippers and we’ll see o O'Keefe enjoy bowling on that wicket.

SYS Team Form 

Sydney Thunders look to be in fine form with 3 wins in 4 games. They started with a close loss to Hobart Hurricanes but bounced back in style, winning their next three matches.

Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Sixers Prediction

We predict the winning team based on performance and any one who follows cricket will be able to tell that Sydney Sixers are big favourites here. They bat till 8, and have plenty of quality bowling options. Melbourne Renegades on the other hand over rely on the duo of Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch in their batting which has hurt them badly.

Final Verdict

Sydney Sixers to beat Melbourne Renegades at 1.75 and 1.66 on Bet365 and Betway

MLR vs SYS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Phillippe at 9.5 is a wonderful selection. He’s in brilliant form and scored a brutal 95 in his previous outing against Renegades

  • Batsmen

    Aaron Finch at 10.5, James Vince at 9.5, Rilee Rossouw at 8.0 and Daniel Hughes at 8.5  form a strong batting order. James Vince is a top class batter in this format while Aaron Finch too have been in some good form. Daniel Hughes smashed a brutal 95 in the last match while Rilee Roussow also has some runs behind him as well. 

  • All rounder

    Daniel Christian at at 9.0, Jason Holder at 9.0 and Imad Wasim at 9.0 are solid picks. Christian and Holder adds a lot of depth in the batting while they are equally good bowling options. The pitch at Queensland will support the spinners and Imad Wasim will play a big role for Renegades.

  • Bowlers

    Kane Richardson at 9.0, Ben Dwarshuis at 8.5 and Steve O Keefe at 8.5 will make a quality bowling attack. All the three mentioned bowlers brings in a lot of variety to the team. Richardson has started to look very good while Ben Dwarshius has also been brilliant. Steve O Keefe with his left arm spin will also be handy.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Daniel Hughes is a very good choice for the skipper while Daniel Christian can be backed as the vice captain.

MLR vs SYS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Rilee Roussow, Shaun Marsh, James Vince, Daniel Hughes (c)

  • All Rounder:Jason Holder, Daniel Christian(vc), Imad Wasim

  • Wicket Keeper:Josh Phillippe

  • Bowler:Ben Dwarshuis, Steve O Keefe, Kane Richardson
