Sydney Thunder are up against Melbourne Renegades in a Big Bash fixture at Sydney Showground Stadium on Tuesday. The Sydney based side had to share points with Brisbane Heat in their last outing as for the floodlight failure that abandoned the game. Sydney Thunder have 50% win record in the competition so far, with four wins and losses each after nine games.
Meanwhile, Melbourne Renegades are one point adrift of their opponent for the fixture. They are sitting at the third spot on the points table after 10 league games, winning five of those and losing as many. With five fixtures remaining before the semi-finals, the Renegades would want to put in stronger performances to hold onto their position.
