STR vs REN dream11 team prediction tips

Lets take a look at some gun players from both the sides in STR vs REN dream11 prediction section.

Jake Weatherald: The southpaw is well and truly acing the finisher role in the last 2 games. He started the tournament brilliantly and faded away a bit and now again back to his best. He can be a valuable pick for fantasy leagues.

Rashid Khan: This might be his last game in this season and he will be looking to end it on a high. He has already contributed much for the team's cause as he has picked 12 wickets in this season. He can be a very good pick as well.

Phil Salt: The dashing England opener might fancy his chances against this weak bowling attack in Melbourne Renegades. He missed out in the previous game and will be hungry to play a big knock in today’s game.

Wes Agar: He has picked 14 wickets in this season and is the 3rd leading wicket taker in this competition so far. He is living upto his potential and bowling well at the moment. His waspish pace is something that batsmen are finding it difficult to gauge.

Other picks: Alex Carey, Peter Siddle, Sam Harper and Kane Richardson can all be very good picks.

Today STR vs REN match score: The safe total on this wicket batting first will be around 170

Today match pitch report: The wicket will be on the slower side and bowlers will have to employ a lot of slower balls to taste success.

Who won yesterday game: HEA won the game by 18 runs against STA.
