The BBL continues tonight when the Adelaide Strikers travel to Marvel Stadium in Docklands to take on the Melbourne Renegades. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match starting at 7:10pm (AEDT).

It’s a little too early to call this match season-defining for the Melbourne Renegades, but after three losses from as many games, the defending champions need to win tonight to get their season back on track. To do that, they will need to beat the Adelaide Strikers, who are yet to taste defeat this season.

The Renegades have not been that far away from victory in their first three games, but being bowled out inside the 20 overs against the Hobart Hurricanes was telling. Their key batsmen Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh have both made scores at the top of the order but not gone on to make a big one. Their middle order has largely misfired.

Their bowling line-up has been below par as well. The Renegades have relied heavily on Kane Richardson, with Harry Gurney and Cameron Boyce struggling for consistency.

The Strikers, on the other hand, have enjoyed a strong start to the season. They will be still pinching themselves after Friday night’s win against the Melbourne Stars, where great death bowling by Peter Siddle secured an unlikely victory.

They do have a strong attack, led by Billy Stanlake and Rashid Khan. Wes Agar is also a lot quicker than most of us gave him credit for.

In the batting stakes, Jake Weatherald is in terrific form and the Renegades will need to get him early. Alex Carey and Jon Wells have provided a consistency in the middle order that the Renegades so far have lacked.

Prediction
If this game was at the Adelaide Oval, it would be impossible to go past the Strikers.

But it’s not. It’s at Marvel Stadium where the Renegades haven’t played this season. It’s also the place where they built a fortress last season on the way to becoming champions.

With the stakes so high for the Melbourrne team, I’m tipping the Renegades to get home, just.

Renegades to win by ten runs or two wickets.
