THU vs REN dream11 team prediction tips

Lets take a look at important players from both the sides from fantasy perspective in THU vs REN dream11 prediction

Callum Ferguson: The captain is leading from the front for Sydney. He has already scored 2 half-centuries in this season so far. He has scored 115 runs in 3 matches thus far. He is a reliable pick in fantasy teams.

Daniel Sams: He is a mandatory pick in all the fantasy teams. He bowls at death as well as with the new ball and can also strike the long ball. He is in good nick both with the ball and bat at the moment.

Kane Richardson: The lanky fast bowler should find a spot in the fantasy teams purely because of the fact that he picks a lot of cheap wickets. If Renegades are bowling first, one can even gamble by giving him vice captain in grand leagues

Sam Harper: He played a valiant knock in the previous game in a losing cause. He was all class against Hobart Hurricanes. He scored 66 off 52 balls in the last game.

Other picks: Aaron Finch, Rilee Rossouw, Adam Milne, Josh Lalor can all be good picks.

Today THU vs REN match score: The average score on this ground in this season is around 160

Today match pitch report: The wicket will assist bowlers with the new ball and it won’t be an easy wicket to pile runs.

Who won last game: STR won the game by 2 runs against HEA.
