The head-to-head record between these two teams is skewed towards Adelaide Strikers, who have won 10 matches compared to 6 by Melbourne Renegades. The Strikers are coming off a historic win in the previous game at Adelaide and have a stronger side on paper. We predict Adelaide Strikers to win this match on Tuesday.

Adelaide Strikers Stand Favorites Amidst Teams Transition With Players Moving

Match no. 36 of the Big Bash League 2022-23 will witness Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades locking horns. The two rivals will meet at Adelaide Oval on Tuesday, January 10th.

Adelaide Strikers have played eight games in the season, winning four and losing as many. They started with three wins in a row before succumbing in four straight games. In their previous fixture, they pulled off the highest run chase in the league's history. 

Their bowling attack was taken to the cleaners by the Hurricanes, who piled on 229/4. Chasing the target, they lost Ryan Gibson early but Chris Lynn and Matthew Short put on an exhibition. They added 124 runs in just 9.4 overs before Lynn was dismissed for 64 off 29. Short went on to hammer 100* in 59 balls to help his side over the line. 

Melbourne Renegades have played one more game than the Strikers, winning five and losing four. The men in red are coming off victories over Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes in the last two games. On Saturday, they chased down the target with six wickets and 11 balls to spare. 

Kane Richardson was excellent with the ball, snaring 2 for 20 in four overs as they pulled things back to restrict Hobart to 162/8 when 180+ looked possible at the halfway mark. The Renegades were 3 for 54 in the run-chase but Sam Harper played a blinder, hammering 89 off 48. 

Team News

Adelaide Strikers' bowling attack will be depleted after Rashid Khan left for the SA20. Having lost Peter Siddle earlier, the pace attack of Henry Thornton, Wes Agar, and Harry Conway looks unreliable. Cameron Boyce is likely to come in with huge Rashid-sized shoes to fill. The batting line-up should remain unchanged. Matthew Short and Chris Lynn have been outstanding while Adam Hose and Colin de Grandhomme made some handy contributions. Travis Head and Alex Carey should be available for the final five group fixtures. 

Melbourne Renegades will be without Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Akeal Hosein, with the spin duo leaving for the ILT20. Sri Lankan spinner Ruwantha Kellepotha will come in as a replacement while David Moody could get more opportunities. Kane Richardson and Tom Rogers have been in pretty good form. The batting unit comprises Martin Guptill, Marcus Harris, Sam Harper, Aaron Finch, and Jonathan Wells. It relies heavily on Guptill and Finch although Harper's form last game will be a great boost.

Key Players 

Matthew Short has been sensational in BBL 2022-23, making an impact with both bat and ball. He's coming off a magnificent hundred in the previous game at this very ground. He has scored 321 runs in eight games at an average of 46 while striking at 143. Short has picked 7 wickets with his off-spin while conceding at just 6.70. 

Kane Richardson made a big impact in the previous game, claiming 2 for 20 off four overs. The experienced right-arm pacer has picked eight scalps in the season at an economy of 6.40. Richardson will be a key figure for the Renegades if they are to stop the Adelaide Strikers' batting unit.
