The Big Bash League (BBL) 2023-24 has been in full flow and everyone is getting their entertainment in the ongoing tournament. This time in match number 18 the Melbourne Renegades will be hosting the Adelaide Strikers at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne on the 29th of December. This will be a great contest between the BBL 7 champion and vs BBL8 champion. The Renegades will look to open their account whereas the Strikers will be looking to keep their top 4 position and keep moving forward. This will certainly be a contest to look forward to.

The Melbourne Renegades are currently languishing at the bottom of the table with no end to their struggles. They have not yet won a single game in the BBL right now losing 4 out of 5 matches and have only 1 point on the board due to a washed-out game. They have been unlucky on the two occasions which were last over thrillers against Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers and struggled to defend totals against Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes. At this stage, they will be hoping that their luck finally turns around after a disappointing season so far.

The Adelaide Strikers on the other hand have had a strange season so far with 3 points on the board out of their 3 games. They have had one win, one loss and one no result. But if we see their performances so far, we can see that they have never had a game with a one-sided result yet. They had chased down a big target against Sydney Thunder in the last over and lost a close-fought game against Sydney Sixers by one run. This proves that they are certainly not a team that you can take lightly and will look to get the better of the Renegades as well.

REN vs STR – Likely Pitch Conditions

The pitch at the Docklands Stadium has always assisted the fast bowlers at the start and this will be where most of the ace pacers on both sides will have to take advantage of these conditions in the beginning or they will have a very steep target to chase. But seeing that most of the batters have won at this ground chasing it will be clear that the teams might choose to bowl and chase down whatever they get. The small boundaries also make this close to a batter paradise. So it will make sense if the team wins the toss and bowls first.
