It is safe to say both these teams entered BBL09 with optimism.

After all, Sydney Sixers have been regulars when it comes to the playoffs stages of BBL. Melbourne Renegades were coming off their first ever title, and had a squad full of experience; arguably even stronger with the addition of Shaun Marsh.

But, the Sixers and Renegades have had very contrasting campaigns. Shaun Marsh and Sam Harper, two key players for the Renegades, are out. Worse, a bottom-placed finish is certain. The Sixers, on the other hand, are still gunning for a top two berth, which makes this a vital, final game for them.

BBL09 Match 52: SS vs MR Dream11: Finch is back.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Amid the doom and gloom, Renegades do welcome back Aaron Finch and Kane Richardson for this clash. Finch has 219 runs vs Sixers at an average above 31.
  • Moises Henriques is the highest sun-scorer in Sixers-Renegades matches (275). Also, Henriques scored 72 (41) in his last game at SCG.
  • James Vince has looked in supreme touch in his last two outings: 41* (22) vs Stars and 51 (37) vs Heat. Also, Vince was Player of the Match in the Renegades-Sixers clash earlier this season (41 off 26 balls).
  • Steve Smith has been in excellent white-ball form of late. His 9 last game was an exception to the rule.
  • Beau Webster: Biggest positive of the season for Renegades. He has nine double-figure scores in his last 10 knocks, including seven scores of 25 or more.
  • Tom Curran has scored 68 runs at SR 141.67, along with four wickets, in three matches against Renegades. He remains a crucial player, despite going for 58 runs against this opposition earlier in BBL09.
  • Mohammad Nabi is coming off a superb 63 (30) vs Hurricanes, along with 1/24. Also, Nabi has seven wickets in three games vs Sixers.
  • Kane Richardson was the top wicket-taker last season. Now, he returns with 10 wickets in seven BBL09 games.
  • Steve O’Keefe and Nathan Lyon worked beautifully in tandem on a Brisbane pitch that offered some turn a few nights ago. They could have an impact again on the typically-slower SCG track.
  • Ben Dwarshuis is the second highest wicket-taker in Sixers-Renegades matches (9).
  • Cameron Boyce in his past two matches: 4/15 and 2/27.

SCG Pitch Report and Conditions

A light shower or two during the day is a possibility for Sydney. However, it shouldn’t be anywhere near enough to deny a result.

In regards to the pitch, the SCG track is typically on the slower side, catering for some tight spin bowling in the powerplay and middle overs.

Match Prediction

Sydney Sixers are favourites to take this one out, and rightly so. They have more to play for, and while the Renegades can be dangerous on their day, the Sixers at home have an edge.
