MLS vs MLR Betting Tips

  • Marcus Stoinis finally found some form in the last game, hitting 74 runs from 35 balls, and the Australian international is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Renegades. Adam Zampa has been very consistent in the competition and he is our tip for Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Aaron Finch is averaging 47.20 in this tournament and the experienced batter is our pick for Melbourne Renegades’ highest run scorer in this Melbourne derby. With the ball, Kane Richardson took 2-21 from his four overs on New Year’s Day and he is a strong choice for Melbourne Renegades’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Melbourne Renegades have struggled with their opening partnerships and we recommend backing Melbourne Stars’ openers to produce a higher first wicket partnership.

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

Melbourne Stars take on Melbourne Renegades on Tuesday evening at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Match 26 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League. The Stars won their last game, an eight run victory over Adelaide Strikers on New Year’s Eve. The Renegades come into this Melbourne derby after losing their last four matches. The game gets underway on January 3rd at 19:15 local time.

Melbourne Stars got back to winning ways with a very impressive team performance in Adelaide. They will take confidence from that victory and will fancy their chances of adding another win in this derby clash.

Melbourne Renegades are in a poor run of form and have lost recent games by large margins. They will need to make a huge improvement if they are to be competitive in this fixture.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

STA Team News

Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns remain long-term absentees in the Melbourne Stars team, but apart from them there are no other injury worries in the squad. We do not expect to see any changes in the XI from the win against the Strikers to this match.

STA Key Players

  • Joe Clarke - The keeper-batter continued his excellent BBL season with 42 runs from 32 balls in the win over Adelaide Strikers. He comes into this game with 232 runs in the BBL 2022-23.
  • Marcus Stoinis - The batting all-rounder took the Player of the Match Award for his fine batting display on Saturday. He hit 11 boundaries in the innings and will be looking to clear the ropes again in this match.
  • Adam Zampa - The right arm spinner and captain has been economical and threatening during this campaign. He took 3-28 at this venue earlier in the competition.

STA Team Form

The Stars ended a run of three successive defeats with their eight run win over Adelaide Strikers on Saturday.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

REN Team News

Although he has been managing a slight injury, Kane Richardson was fit enough to perform to a high level on New Year’s Day and we expect him to be selected again in this match. Peter Handscomb was promoted to number three in the batting order in the last game and could well get a go as an opener in this game.

REN Key Players

  • Aaron Finch - The form of the former skipper has been a rare bright spot for Melbourne Renegades during this campaign. He is the second highest run scorer in the 2022-23 BBL.
  • Akeal Hosein - The West Indian spinner went wicketless against Perth Scorchers in the last match but should get some turn and bounce from the pitch in this match.
  • Kane Richardson - The experienced fast medium bowler dismissed both Perth Scorchers openers, Adam Lyth and Faf du Plessis, in Sunday's game in Melbourne.

REN Team Form

The Renegades are hoping to avoid their fifth successive defeat in this year’s tournament.

Melbourne Renegades Predicted Playing 11

Martin Guptill, Nic Maddinson (c), Peter Handscomb (wk), Aaron Finch, Jonathan Wells, Mackenzie Harvey, Will Sutherland, Akeal Hosein, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Who will win Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades T20 Match?

With the exception of Aaron Finch, Melbourne Renegades have struggled to make consistent runs with the bat. Melbourne Stars have more runs in their team and we expect that to be the difference between the teams.

MLS vs MLR Top Team Batsmen

Our batting picks are Marcus Stoinis, Joe Clarke and Hilton Cartwright for Melbourne Stars. Stoinis had been in a poor run of batting form but the bookies are strongly behind him ahead of this match. Cartwright has hit seven T20 half-centuries.

Aaron Finch, Martin Guptill and Peter Handscomb are our batting recommendations for Melbourne Renegades. Finch’s form makes him an obvious choice to be the batting favourite for the Renegades. Guptill has hit only 18 runs from three innings but is capable of winning a game on his own when he gets going.

MLS vs MLR Top Team Bowlers

Trent Boult, Adam Zampa and Luke Wood are our tips with the ball for Melbourne Stars. Boult is the favourite with the bookmakers and dismissed Matthew Short in his first over in the last game. Wood has picked up 11 dismissals across the competition so far.

We are backing Kane Richardson, Tom Rogers and Akeal Hosein with the ball for Melbourne Renegades. Richardson is in third place on the all-time list of BBL wicket takers and the bookies expect more dismissals from him in this match. Hosein has taken 12 wickets in this tournament so far.
