MLR vs MLS Team Previews

Melbourne Renegades

The Melbourne Stars are currently placed 4th on the points table with 8 points. The team has two more matches to play, including this one, before the group stage ends. With Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes close on its heels, the Stars will need to win here to improve their chances of qualifying.

The performances of some of the all-rounders have been the highlight of the Stars’ campaign so far. Glenn Maxwell is the leading run-scorer for the team with 191 runs and has also picked up 7 wickets. Similarly, Beau Webster has scored 178 runs and picked up 6 wickets.

Hilton Cartwright is another consistent performer with the bat in the middle order. There are however a few areas where the Stars need to improve. The opening pair of Thomas Rogers and Daniel Lawrence hasn’t been consistent enough.

Similarly, the performances of Imad Wasim and Marcus Stoinis have been below par. The team’s mainstream bowlers including Joel Paris and Scott Boland have failed to deliver the goods.

Overall, the Stars need to perform better as a unit if they want to qualify.

Melbourne Stars

The Melbourne Renegades will be very disappointed with their performance this season. With just 1 win in 8 matches, the team is on course to end the season with a wooden spoon.

Jake Fraser-McGurk will be the key batsman for the Renegades as he is the top-scorer for them with 215 runs. However, he has received little support from his fellow batsmen and that has been the key cause for the team’s poor performance so far.

Quinton de Kock and Shaun Marsh have been rather inconsistent as an opening pair, and the same has been the case with Jordan Cox and Joe Clarke. The problem continues with the bowling as well. Adam Zampa, who was supposed to be the strike bowler for the team, has managed to pick up just 5 wickets in 7 matches.

The seamers too have struggled to put a leash on the opposition batting. While a win here will have no bearing on the Renegades chances, they will still be playing for pride.

Pitch and Conditions

The quicker bowlers can expect plenty of help early on in the match. The ball does swing around, and the batsmen will need to see off the new ball before they can start playing the big shots. The surface does get easy to bat on as the game progresses. A score of around 180 is a par score.

The weather is likely to be overcast with temperatures of below 20 degrees.

The Stars have some explosive batsmen playing for them, including Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, and Hilton Cartwright. On the other hand, the batsmen from the Renegades haven’t been in the best of forms. We are therefore backing the Stars to hit the most maximums.

    Jonathan Wells to score Over 15.5 runs



Wells has been a consistent performer for the Renegades. He has an average of 35.75 this season and has scored at least 16 runs in 3 of his last 6 outings. We are backing him to play a good inning in this match.
