THE TEAM NEWS
- Sydney Thunder suffered a second loss in succession as they were well beaten by local rivals Sydney Sixers in their derby last time out and that loss could have cost the Thunder second spot in the Big Bash League.
- The Thunder will know their fate before they take to the pitch here with the Sixers set to play before this one gets underway but even if they cannot finish in second, they will still be desperate to produce a good performance after being hammered by 60 runs in the all-Sydney affair.
- Melbourne Renegades suffered a fourth consecutive loss in the BBL and while it was a much-improved effort after some underwhelming performances of late, they were still not quite good enough as they fell to Hobart Hurricanes.
- Aaron Finch was excellent as he attempted to guide his side to victory but he fell for 75 in the penultimate over and the Renegades were unable to recover with Hobart’s score of 182 proved to be enough with the Melbourne outfit finishing on 176/6.
Sydney Thunder have suffered back-to-back losses in the Big Bash League and those untimely setbacks could cost them a place in the top two. They were on the end of a heavy defeat to local rivals Sydney Sixers last time out and after some soul-searching, they will be desperate to put that loss behind them by making an immediate response ahead of the knockout phase of the competition. Standing in their way is a Melbourne Renegades outfit that come into this on the back of a four-game losing streak and with just three wins to their name from their 13 games to date, it is difficult to envisage them bowing out of the tournament on a high note.
