SIX vs REN Dream11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips Possible XIs Pitch Report: BBL 2023/24 Match 2 | SS vs MR Dream11 Prediction Today | SCG Pitch Report

The consistent Sydney Sixers, who look strong once again, kick off their BBL 2023/24 campaign against a Melbourne Renegades team full of potential. The Sixers will be keen to go all the way once again this season, after reaching the final two seasons ago and then losing the qualifier last time out. Steve Smith will play this game before the Pakistan Tests, and the team will be hoping for the kind of brilliant form he showed last campaign.

For the Renegades, there is also a lot to like. Their spin options look strong with Adam Zampa on board, and Tom Rogers and Kane Richardson will be sure to aim to perfect their yorkers in the death overs. They also have Joe Clarke on deck along with Jordan Cox who can provide the side with an explosive powerplay. But, how they fare against an experienced Sixers attack will be fascinating to see.
