Tomorrow’s matchup between Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers at the Marvel Stadium will be the 2nd semi-final of the BBL08.
The battle of bowlers
Often dominated by the batsmen, the cricket pitch at the Marvel Stadium could turn out to be the perfect battleground for bowlers. The quality of bowlers on the show, including the likes of Kane Richardson, Sean Abbott and Steve O’Keefe, will surely make it a difficult outing for the batsmen. Notably, Kane Richardson of Melbourne Renegades is the leading wicket-taker in BBL 2018-19 with 24 wickets in 12 matches.
The bowling attack of Sydney Sixers pulls no punches of their own. The deadly trio of Sean Abbott (21), Tom Curran (20) and Steve O’Keefe (19) have collectively dismissed batsmen 60 times so far. Both the teams feature a number of bowlers who have maintained a good economy rate in the range of 7. Thus, it is easy to see that the match between Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers will have the bowlers at the centre of it all.
Sydney Sixers have the upper hand in the rivalry
Even though Melbourne Renegades managed to sneak past Sydney Sixers to the 2nd position, due to a higher net-run-rate, in the BBL08 standings, Sydney Sixers have fared much better in matches between the two teams in recent times. The visitors will arrive at the Marvel Stadium full of confidence, knowing they have beaten the hosts 5 times in the last 7 matches between the two sides.
