Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Thunder by Rahul
Games played at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne generally tend to be high scoring ones The pitch is a stadium which has a retractable roof and with small boundaries, we often see heavy scoring of runs in this encounters. Last season in the matches played, the runs scored on the ground were -
343 (14 sixes, 25 fours) - Melbourne Renegades v Adelaide Strikers
311 (10 sixes, 29 fours) - Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars
341 (13 sixes, 21 fours) - Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers
346 (16 sixes, 23 fours) - Melbourne Renegades v Sydney Sixers
The Renegades have been extremely good at home and not scored less than 155 in any of their games played here. Their batting lineup looks extremely strong coming into this game with the likes of Finch, Wade, Nevill, Bravo, Cooper, Ferguson, White, Harris in their squad with at least 7 out of these 8 making it into the final XI.
Looking at their opponents Sydney Thunder, and while they have a depleted squad compared to last year, few of their players showed some glimpses of form in the short knocks that they had. Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell who are the overseas pros will need to come to the party in addition to the local boys Gibson, Patterson, Blizzard, Rohrer and Doran need to step up to the party in this game.
This should promise to be another highly entertaining game like much of the BBL06 has already shown to be.
