We are gradually moving towards the business end of the Big Bash League, and the 37th game will see defending champions Melbourne Renegades lock horns with hosts Sydney Thunder at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.
Melbourne Renegades have failed to live up to their expectations so far in the season. With nine defeats in as many fixtures, the Renegades are all-but-out of the competition and will be looking to break the unwanted streak. In their previous match against Adelaide Strikers, Renegades suffered a thumping 63-run defeat as they managed to gather only 110 runs on the board while chasing a target of 174 runs. Dan Christian and Co. will be eager to register their first victory of the season before the culmination of BBL 2019-20.
Sydney Thunder also have had a topsy-turvy campaign so far in the tournament. In their nine matches so far, Thunder have gathered only four wins and are currently poised sixth in the points table with nine points. The Callum Ferguson-led side will be eager to break into the top half of the table. In their previous match against Hobart Hurricanes, Thunder registered a comprehensive four-wicket victory on the back of some impressive batting performances from Alex Hales, Usman Khawaja and Alex Ross.
Sydney Thunder: Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson(c), Alex Ross, Jay Lenton(w), Chris Morris, Daniel Sams, Arjun Nair, Jonathan Cook, Liam Bowe, Brendan Doggett, Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu
Melbourne Renegades: Shaun Marsh, Marcus Harris, Sam Harper(w), Beau Webster, Mohammad Nabi, Tom Cooper, Daniel Christian(c), Samit Patel, Jack Wildermuth, Cameron Boyce, Joe Mennie, Andrew Fekete, Will Sutherland
