REN vs SIX Dream11 Prediction: The second match of Tuesday’s doubleheader in Geelong will pit the Melbourne Renegades against the Sydney Sixers. Sixers, who are seated at the third spot with 6 wins to their name, are well within the range of making the playoffs in BBL 11. Though the Sixers lost by five wickets in the recent outing against the Perth Scorchers, and they haven’t had the best of the form in the last five matches, it’s just a matter of time for the defending champions to clinch a knockout birth. Meanwhile, the Renegades broke their two-match winning streak as they suffered a 129-run drubbing to the Sydney Thunder, which is one of the biggest margins of defeat in BBL. As far as their position is concerned, they lie at the sixth spot with merely 3 wins in 10 matches, including a no result that occurred in their last matchup against the Sixers.

It wasn’t a high-scoring encounter in the last match played at this venue, with the team batting first – Brisbane Heat – posting a total of 129 runs which were eventually chased down by the Renegades in 15 overs. Clear skies would certainly help the batters, so scores in excess of 150 can be anticipated in the upcoming game.

Aaron Finch Stats in T20
With the Renegades’ campaign inching closer to the final stages, the former captain would be eyeing explosive starts to their innings. Finch has cherished batting against the Sixers, considering he averages 37.90 and holds a hundred and two fifties, all while striking at a rate over 130.
Kane Richardson Stats in T20
The 30-year-old has been spot on with his lengths and variations in BBL 11. So far, he has picked 16 wickets across 11 matches while averaging merely 16.43. He has been influential in the later stages of the matches, so one can back him in the fantasy line-up to garner points against a frail-looking Renegades in the upcoming game.

Josh Philippe Stats in T20
He’s been a fan-favorite in the BBL 11 for the points he can garner with his batting and wicket-keeping prowess. And rightly so, the 24-year-old has amassed 327 runs across 9 innings at an average and strike rate of 40.87 and 147.29, with 3 fifty-plus scores, including 11 dismissals when behind the stumps.
Hayden Kerr Stats in T20
The left-arm fast-medium has spearheaded the bowling attack for the Sixers. With 16 wickets across 9 innings at a jaw-dropping average of 11.00 and an economy of 7.04, Kerr has been a proven partnership-breaker in almost all the matches contested so far. As a result, he could be vouched to grab a wicket or two in Geelong.
By a fair margin, the Sydney Sixers look pretty competent to secure a win over the Melbourne Renegades, who have been struggling with form since the commencement of BBL 11. Not just the presence of experienced campaigners in this tournament who are in-form and well equipped, the Sixers have a solid bench strength which can be backed to tackle a dwindling Renegades. According to the REN vs SIX today match prediction and Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Sixers cricket betting tips, Sydney Sixers have been tipped as the favorites to win this match.
