Strikers To Hit Most Sixes
Richardson To Take Most Wickets
Short to be Man of the Match
Adelaide Strikers have struck 40 sixes in eight matches (5/innings) while the Renegades have hit 46 sixes in nine games (5.1/innings). So there’s nothing to conclude.

Our Prediction: Adelaide Strikers to hit most sixes in this match with the odds of 5/6 (1.83).
Adelaide is a venue where experience could play a big role and the sheer pace doesn’t work. Kane Richardson has good variations and is coming off a 2/20 in the previous game. He has the odds of 9/4 (3.25) to be the highest wicket-taker for Melbourne Renegades. For the Strikers, Wes Agar has the odds of 11/4 (3.75) to be the top bowler.
Our Prediction: Kane Richardson to be the highest wicket-taker for Melbourne Renegades at 9/4 (3.25).

Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades Preview
Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades, placed in the mid-table, are coming off a victory in their respective previous match. Let’s take a look at both sides ahead of their encounter on Tuesday.
Adelaide Strikers started the season with three straight wins but now find themselves fighting for the top five spots after losing four on the trot. They have played eight games, winning four and losing four. The Strikers pulled off the highest successful run chase in the BBL against Hobart in the previous game.
Matthew Short, who scored a 59-ball 100* in that game, remains a key player alongside Chris Lynn. Losing Rashid Khan weakens their bowling unit. Travis Head and Alex Carey are slated to play the final five matches, meaning they won’t be available for this fixture.
Squad: Matthew Short, Henry Hunt, Chris Lynn, Adam Hose, Colin de Grandhomme, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen (wk), Wes Agar, Henry Thornton, Cameron Boyce, Harry Conway.
Melbourne Renegades are in a better position than their opponents, having won five out of their eight matches in the season. They have defeated Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes in their last two fixtures. Sam Harper was the star in the previous game, striking 89 off 48 to outplay the Hurricanes by six wickets.
The Renegades won’t have the services of their overseas spin duo of Akeal Hosein and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who are off to the ILT20. David Moody and Ruwantha Kellepotha are likely to come in with a big hole to fill.
Squad: Martin Guptill, Marcus Harris, Sam Harper (wk), Aaron Finch (c), Jonathan Wells, McKenzie Harvey, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, David Moody, Ruwantha Kellepotha
