REN vs THU: Possible Melbourne Renegades Playing 11 for Match 40 of Big Bash League


Melbourne Renegades playing 11: Renegades have 3 wins in 9 games and are in 6th position in the points table. They have won 2 games on the trot and are playing their best possible playing XI while some other teams are being covid hit and forced to play 3rd and 4th string sides.

Aaron Finch at the top of the order has blown hot and cold but he has shown enough signs of him being a dangerous batter to the opposition if they don’t knock him down early in the innings.

Team news:

  • James Pattinson has once again been left out of the squad.
  • Mohammad Nabi bowled really well in the previous game after being drafted into the team as an X-factor.
  • The chinaman Zahir Khan has been pretty impressive all through the tournament so far.
  • Reece Topley will not be available for the rest of the season as he has left to join the England squad ahead of West Indies series.

Who are Dream11 captain, vice captain picks for Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Thunder from REN?

  • Shaun Marsh showed his class in the game against Brisbane Heat where he scored an excellent 57 runs batting at #3. He is a very good option for captain in small leagues and vice captain option in grand leagues. He is a prolific run getter and when he is in form, its hard to get rid of him.
  • Kane Richardson picked another 2 wickets against Heat and is nearing the leading wicket takers list in the season, is a reliable vice captain option in grand leagues and he is sure to pick up a wicket or 2 in every game he plays.
