Geelong, January 03 Thursday at 01:45 PM IST
Melbourne Renegades will take on Adelaide Strikers in the first of two doubleheaders at Geelong Cricket Ground, Geelong on Thursday. With two consecutive defeats in the last two encounters, Renegades would be desperate to bounce back and secure a win. With two wins and two defeats in four encounters, Renegades are placed sixth in the points table with four points.
Adelaide Strikers are placed just above Renegades at fifth spot with same attributes but are ahead because of the better run rate. Strikers started their campaign with five wickets win over Brisbane Heat in the opening encounter but faced two consecutive defeats in their second and third fixture. However, in their last encounter, they registered 20 runs win over Sydney Thunder and would be hoping to continue it further.
Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades first met at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide where Melbourne Renegades turned out to be the winner by five wickets. After winning the toss, Renegades opted to bowl first and invited Strikers to set the target. Put into bat, Strikers posted a defendable 174-5 on the board with the help of M Short’s (65 of 41) and Jonathan Wells’ (42 of 30).
Coming to chase, Renegades chased down the target with five wickets in hand and five balls to spare, courtesy M Nabi’s unbeaten 48 of 30 and D Christian’s unbeaten 49 of 27 deliveries.
