Who will win Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Renegades, BBL 2020?
Sydney Thunder will look to continue their return to winning ways when they face winless Melbourne Renegades at Canberra’s Manuka Oval. The match takes place on January 15 and gets underway at 18:10 local time.
Sydney Thunder ended a run of three consecutive defeats when they beat Hobart Hurricanes last time out – Alex Hales’ half-century leading a chase of 163 to beat them with two balls to spare. They now have a big chance to make it back-to-back wins when they take on a Renegades team they have beaten once already this season.
The Renegades came into this tournament as defending champions but they have now lost all nine matches they have played so far. They were bowled out for 110 in their most recent game, against Adelaide Strikers, to continue their miserable form.

It is four matches since Melbourne Renegades won the bat flip so they are due a change in fortune. The Thunder elected to field first when they were last in Canberra.
SYT vs MLR Weather Report
Smog was an issue last time the Big Bash rolled into Canberra, while there will be cloud cover for this game and a very small chance of rain too. Otherwise, the smoke – caused by the bushfires – has eased a little in the past day.
SYT vs MLR Pitch Condition
Canberra’s Manuka Oval is a balanced wicket, though its true nature could not be explored last time out as heavy smog caused the early abandonment of the Thunder’s last match here.
