MLR vs ADS Team Previews

Melbourne Renegades

The Renegades have had a terrible start to the season. After playing 5 matches, they are yet to register a win and their solitary point has come as a result of an abandoned match. With half of the season already behind them, the Renegades will be desperate to win here.

The Renegades came within touching distance of defeating the Perth Scorchers on Boxing Day, thanks to some sensational bowling by Will Sutherland and Kane Richardson towards the death overs. However, the hosts held to their nerves and ended on top.

Shaun Marsh missed the first four matches of the season but was back with a vengeance as he scored a brilliant half-century. He, along with Jake Fraser-McGurk, will be the key batsman for the Renegades. The opening pair of Quinton de Kock and Joe Clarke has done a decent job so far but the team will need a strong start from them.

The pace trio of Will Sutherland, Kane Richardson, and Tom Rogers has done a good job so far. Sutherland and Rogers are the leading wicket-takers for the team with 6 wickets each.

The spin attack is pretty strong too, as Adam Zampa and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have picked up 4 wickets a piece.

Adelaide Strikers

The Adelaide Strikers are currently 4th on the table with 3 points. However, at 3 matches, they have played the least number of games and a win here will further cement its place in the top 4.

Matthew Short is in excellent all-round form and has scored 137 runs while also picking up 3 wickets. He has scored half-centuries in both of his outings so far and will look to give the team a strong start with his opening partner D’Arcy Short.

The middle order consists of some explosive batsmen including Chris Lynn, Jake Weatherald, and Adam Hose, while all-rounders Jamie Overton and James Bazley add depth to the batting.

Overton is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 5 wickets. He will head the seam attack alongside David Payne and Wes Agar. Cameron Boyce will feature in the spin department alongside Matthew Short.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Docklands Stadium is well-balanced, providing equal opportunities to the batsmen and the bowlers. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 160. However, the team batting first will look to get over the 175 mark to give the bowlers a fair chance at defending.

The quicker bowlers will get some movement with the new ball but things do settle down as the ball gets softer.

The weather in Melbourne is likely to be clear with temperatures of between 15 to 18 degrees. 


MLR vs ADS Betting Tips

While the Melbourne Renegades are a quality side, they have struggled to perform throughout this season. On the other hand, the Adelaide Strikers have played better cricket and are likely to end up on top.

The pitch at the Docklands Stadium isn’t the easiest to bat on. As both sides have a good bowling attack, we think that this will be a comparatively low-scoring game.

    Highest Opening Partnership

    Adelaide Strikers (1.83)


The opening pair of D’Arcy Short and Matthew Short has given the Adelaide Strikers a strong start in both matches so far. On the other hand, De Kock and Joe Clarke haven’t been the most fluent. We are therefore backing the Strikers to put up the bigger opening partnership.

  1. Parimatch


    Jake Fraser-McGurk to score over 21.5 runs



Fraser-McGurk is the leading run-scorer for the Renegades this season. He is averaging 26.25 and has scored at least 22 runs in 2 of his last 4 innings. We are backing him to play another good inning in this match.
