REN vs THU Dream11 Prediction: Melbourne Renegades are back in the winning ways after a string of losses in the first half of the BBL 11. The former champions managed to script back-to-back wins over Melbourne Stars and then Brisbane heat to occupy the 5th spot in BBL rankings. In the recent outing against the Heat, it was Shaun Marsh, whose heroics with the bat helped them chase a 129-run total with five wickets and as many overs to spare. For the Sydney Thunder, who are among the favorites for the title by the manner of their play, pacer Gurinder Sandhu’s hattrick played a pivotal role in restricting the Perth Scorchers to a target of 135 runs in a rain-affected match at Carrara Oval. Thunder’s top-order trio put up a quickfire exhibition to wrap up the chase with 6 wickets in hand and scale to the 3rd position in the BBL rankings.
