One of these teams have punched above their weight. The other has had nothing short of an abysmal season.

Sydney Thunder, with a win, can move from sixth to third in the BBL09 table. They have competed in just about every game so far this season, testament to the leadership of Callum Ferguson and his team’s efforts.

The same can’t be said of Melbourne Renegades. The defending champions are in serious danger of finishing the season with 14 defeats out of 14 games, such has been their poor form this season. Their last few games in particular have been poor, with their 63-run loss to the Strikers the latest of their many humiliations.

  • Beau Webster has been a shining light in a horrible season for the Renegades. He has 310 runs at avg. 62, with his last four scores: 29, 59*, 25, 49.
  • Shaun Marsh has also been solid, sitting third among BBL09 run-scorers (319 runs at 35.44). He and Webster have easily been the Renegades’ best batsmen.

Manuka Oval Canberra Pitch Report and Conditions

The Canberra track is typically on the slower side. Spinners and pacers who bowl good cutters usually find some success on this ground.

However, like an earlier game in Canberra this season, there is the threat of smoke haze from bushfires. It remains to be seen if it will have an impact on the game.

Match Prediction

Renegades don’t look like winning a game. Thunder, if they maintain their discipline and focus, should win this one.
