Australia T20 League Match Prediction: Adelaide Strikers vs. Melbourne Renegades

The ninth edition of Australia T20 League has got the cricket fans hooked to the TV screens. On 12 Jan, the spectators will witness another high-octane battle between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades at Adelaide Oval Stadium. The 33rd match is slated to begin at 10:10 AM. The defending champions Adelaide Strikers are one of the unbeaten teams in this season. On the other hand, Renegades’ dismal campaign has landed them at the bottom of the points ladder, with no wins out of 8 matches. It has been a contrasting journey for both the teams in the tournament. This encounter is vital for both the sides and they will look to save their grave by registering their victory.

Adelaide Strikers are poised at the fourth position on the points table with 3 wins out of seven matches they have played so far. They have had a muddled campaign in this season with a strong batting line-up.

Jonathan Wells is one of the leading run-scorers for Strikers, assisted by another potential batsmen Alex Carey, who has also delivered match-winning performances. Their bowling department consisting of Peter Siddle, Rashid Khan and Billy Stanlake are expected to pick up crucial wickets in the death overs.

As the extravaganza of this league progresses into its latter stages, Melbourne Renegades need to buck up in order to break their winless streak. Despite brilliant performances from Sam Harper, Shaun Marsh, and Beau Webster, Aaron Finch and Co. has suffered back to back defeats in the league. In order to win this contest, the Renegades’ batsmen have to pull up their sock and amass a decent score for the opponent. Renegades’ bowling unit will be steered by the likes of Kane Richardson, Richard Gleeson, and Harry Gurney.
