SIX vs REN Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 18 | SS vs MR Dream11 Prediction Today | SCG Pitch Report

BBL 12 is beginning to take shape. The top sides are beginning to pull away from other challengers. Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Renegades do battle in the quest to move up the table and further confirm their status as one of the better teams in this competition.

Sixers, after a shaky start, are aiming for three straight wins. The most pleasing aspect of their victory against Stars on Boxing Day was Moises Henriques’ return to form. However, there remains some inconsistency at the top of the order, so today is a chance to discover some touch.

Renegades, after three wins of their own, lost in incredible fashion to the Hurricanes on Christmas Eve. Chasing just 123 for victory, some of the old Renegades habits came to the fore, losing their first three wickets inside three overs to hand the advantage. If they do the same here, it will be just as hard to fight back given the Sixers’ well-rounded attack.

BBL 2022/23 Match 18: SIX vs REN Possible Playing XIs

Sixers have named an unchanged squad. They may stick to the same XI that beat Stars, unless they choose to bring in Naveed-ul-Haq and Todd Murphy. Also, Steve O’Keefe is in some doubt as he tweaked his hamstring in the last match.

There is the option of playing Ben Dwarshuis. The left-arm seamer has taken 19 wickets in 11 matches against Renegades at an average of 16.79 and economy of 7.88.

Sydney Sixers: 1. Josh Philippe (wk), 2. Kurtis Patterson, 3. James Vince, 4. Moises Henriques (c), 5. Jordan Silk, 6. Dan Christian, 7. Hayden Kerr, 8. Sean Abbott, 9. Steve O’Keefe/Todd Murphy, 10. Jackson Bird/Ben Dwarshuis, 11. Izharulhaq Naveed/Naveed-ul-Haq

Andre Russell is no longer available in BBL 12. But, the Renegades welcome back plenty of experience, with Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb and Kane Richardson all in the matchday squad. Sam Harper, Jake Fraser-McGurk and Jack Prestwidge have been omitted.

Melbourne Renegades: 1. Martin Guptill, 2. Nic Maddinson (c), 3. Shaun Marsh, 4. Aaron Finch, 5. Peter Handscomb (wk), 6. Jono Wells, 7. Akeal Hosein, 8. Will Sutherland, 9. Tom Rogers/David Moody, 10. Kane Richardson, 11. Mujeeb Ur Rahman

SCG Pitch Report and Weather

The Sixers-Stars match two days ago was played on a new pitch that was on the slower side. Still, batsmen were able to get in as just eight wickets fell in the match in total, with six of them coming inside the first ten overs.

Spinners and cutters into the wicket could work well today on a square that has had quite a bit of traffic on it since the T20 World Cup.

It is another warm and sunny day in Sydney today with a top of 29 degrees. There is no chance of rain.
