Renegades vs Sixers Tips, Preview & Prediction

These teams met back on December 13 when the Sydney Sixers smashed the Melbourne Renegades by 145 runs. Batting first, the Sixers made 4/205 from their 20 overs with Josh Philippe top scoring with 95 off 57 balls. He was supported by Jordan Silk who finished unbeaten with 45 from 19 deliveries.

The Renegades would only survive 10.4 overs as they were bowled out for 60 runs. Ben Dwarshuis claimed 4/13 off 2.4 overs, Steve O’Keefe took 3/16 off three overs and Carlos Braithwaite picked up 2/12 off two overs.

Currently on top of the BBL ladder, the Sixers have won their past three matches to boast a 3-1 record with 12 points. In contrast, the Renegades have lost their past three for a 1-3 record and just four points.

It will require a huge turnaround from the Renegades in order to turn the tables on the Sixers. And that is not only because of the large loss in their first encounter. The Renegades have since been bowled out for 80 by the Sydney Thunder; the Thunder batted first making 8/209.

The Sixers come off a one-wicket victory over the Melbourne Stars. Batting first, the Stars made 5/193 off their 20 overs with Glenn Maxwell scoring 71 not out and Nicholas Pooran 65 off 26 balls. The Sixers reached the target with one ball to spare as Daniel Hughes starred with 96 off 51 balls.

Based on current form, it is hard to make a case for the Renegades beating the defending champions and the Sixers should win this match comfortably.

Opening batsman and wicket keeper Josh Philippe is a key player for the Sixers. He looks set to make run against the Renegades once again and should be able to score more than 36.5 Player Performance points.

Looking for a bit of value, South African Rilee Rossouw hasn’t looked to be too far away from a big knock so backing him to score 30 or more runs.
