The defending champions couldn’t have hoped for a more dismal start that they have endured thus far. After having lost their opening three encounters, the Aaron Finch-led Melbourne Renegades are in desperate need of a revival.
They come into this game on the back of a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Hobart Hurricanes after another insipid effort with the bat despite a half-century from Aaron Finch which saw them post an underwhelming 147 all-out, a target which was chased down with ease by D’Arcy Short  and Ben McDermott-led Hurricanes.
The task of reviving their fortunes wouldn’t be easy though as the team they will face Alex Carey’s Adelaide Strikers on Sunday, who is riding on a two-match winning streak, with the latest victory coming in a nail-biting encounter against the Stars.
Melbourne Renegades: Sam Harper(w), Aaron Finch(c), Shaun Marsh, Marcus Harris, Beau Webster, Daniel Christian, Tom Cooper, Cameron Boyce, Kane Richardson, Richard Gleeson, Harry Gurney, Joe Mennie, Will Sutherland
