6TH Match (N), MELBOURNE, Dec 13 2020, Big Bash League
SYD VS MLR MATCH PREDICTION & ANALYSIS
The Sydney Sixers are one of the most successful teams of the Big Bash. It appears as if they are going to have a tough time on their hands this season trying to get another title this season as they began with a loss. Things are not about to get easier against the Melbourne Renegades either. Unlike the Sixers, the Renegades walloped the Perth Scorchers and registered a comfortable win to start their BBL 2020-21 tournament.
This promises to be an exciting contest.
Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Renegades BBL 2020-21 is going to be played at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart on the 13th of December 2020.
The Sixers had an excellent start with the bat and ball in the previous match but lost their way both times. Early wickets for their bowlers meant that the Hobart Hurricanes were 4 for 2 in the first seven deliveries while 118 for 1 turned into a 16 runs defeat while chasing 179.
The Sixers will want to avoid such mistakes in this match and build on the good stuff.
Runs for Jack Edwards and James Vince is a very good sign while Ben Manenti and Ben Dwarshius bowled quite well also.
There is a lot of depth in the team on paper, both in the batting and the bowling departments.
We don’t think the Sydney Sixers are going to change too much in their team composition for this match. The focus is going to be on the execution.
The Melbourne Renegades are going to be full of confidence after their performance in the opening match. Their bowling was clinical and their batting was excellent as well.
Josh Lalor, Kane Richardson, and Peter Hatzoglou were the standout performers of the match. They ensured that their team did not have to chase down any significant amount of runs.
Benny Howell is another very canny buy as his T20 know-how is legendary on the English T20 circuit.
Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch are the obvious players to watch out for and are in excellent form. Finch has scored a truckload of runs against the Indians while Shaun Marsh just seems to carry on and on in T20 cricket.
The role of Rilee Rossouw is very important in the middle and this is where the Renegades have to be careful. Their batting line up does not have too much depth and early wickets could leave it struggling for sure.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
There is a lot of cricket being played at the Bellerive Oval and so we could see the pitch slow up a little. As of now, though, the conditions look very good for batting with a little bit of bounce on offer for the faster bowlers.
Both the teams have played a match at the Bellerive Oval and so should be pretty well-versed with what to expect.
SYD VS MLR BETTING TIPS
We are going to go with the Sydney Sixers in this match. They have the basics covered and did not play too badly in their opening match either. They just need to pick a couple of wickets early and they could end up dominating the Melbourne Renegades.
Bet on the Sydney Sixers to win.
