Melbourne Renegades are all set to take on Sydney Thunder in Match 7 of the Big Bash League 2022 at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne.

Both the sides are coming off contrasting results in their previous fixtures. Renegades are already off the mark in the points table with a comfortable 22-run victory in their first game against the Brisbane Heat. On the other hand, Sydney Thunder faced a horrible defeat against Adelaide Strikers as they were bundled out just 15 to record the lowest over T20 total.

The franchise will need an inspiring effort from here on to turn the tables and get their campaign back in place. They did win their first encounter against Melbourne Stars by one wicket and will hope to forget the previous game.

Pitch Report 

The Docklands Stadium in Melbourne has been a good venue for batting and the wickets tends to slow up as the game progresses. The skipper winning the toss is likely to choose to bat first.

Predicted Playing XIs for REN vs THU 

Melbourne Renegades:

Aaron Finch, Nic Maddinson (c), Sam Harper (wk), Jake Fraser McGurk, Jonathan Wells, Andre Russell, Akeal Hosein, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman 

Sydney Thunder:

Alex Hales, Matthew Gilkes (wk), Rilee Rossouw, Jason Sangha (c), Daniel Sams, Alex Ross, Oliver Davies, Chris Green, Gurinder Sandhu, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Brendan Doggett 

Probable Best Performers from REN vs THU 

Probable best batter: Aaron Finch 

Aaron Finch had dropped down to number four in the batting order and the move wasn’t quite fruitful as he was dismissed for just four runs in the previous game. However, Finch can be quite destructive with his stroke-making and is likely to excel in the upcoming fixture after the failure in the first game.  

Probable best bowler: Akeal Hosein 

Akeal Hosein was instrumental in the win for Melbourne Renegades in the previous fixture and the left-arm spinner looked a lot more effective. He bowled excellent lengths with the new ball and went on to pick three wickets while conceding just 15 runs. The 29-year-old has had a great start to his BBL career and he will be looking to continue the good form.
