ADS vs MLR Dream11 Prediction

Big Bash League, 2018 | Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades, 18th Match | ADS vs MLR Who Will Win

The defending champions Adelaide Strikers next assignment is in the form of Melbourne Renegades whom they will be playing at the Geelong cricket ground. Both teams have had a mixed sort of season having won 2 of their 4 matches.

This would be the second battle between these two sides and both teams will look to capitalise on their current situation on the points table. Let us have a brief insight into the last battle between the two teams.

6th Match at Adelaide Oval

This was the 6th match of the season which was played at the home ground of Adelaide Strikers. Strikers were coming into this encounter after winning their opening game against Brisbane Heat comprehensively by 5 wickets.

Winning the toss the Melbourne Renegades opted to field as they were backing their batsmen to chase a target. Their bowlers made an early breakthrough by dismissing the dangerous Alex Carey in the third over, but Jake Weatherald (32 off 28), Jonathan Wells(42 off 30) and Matthew Short (65 off 41) steadied the ship and took the score to 174.

In reply, Renegades did not get a stable start as they lost opener Tim Ludeman for 8 runs on the 13th ball of the innings. Veteran Cameron White (32 off 22) tried to stabilize the innings which was well handled by all-rounders Mohammad Nabi (48* off 30) and Daniel Christian (49* off 27) made sure there weren’t any hiccups anymore and got the team over the line with 5 wickets in hand.
