When and where:
Sydney Sixers will take on Melbourne Renegades in either team’s ninth game of the Big Bash League T20, on (January 16) at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney, Australia.
The hosts Sydney Sixers are currently in the third spot in the league table. They have an even record of 4 wins and 4 losses in eight games played. This is not enough for a side who has aspirations of becoming champions of the Big Bash League. Even though they are missing their star bowler in Nathan Lyon, the squad is still strong enough to get past any side on a good day. All they need to is keep doing the basics right and not over complicate the simple things.
Meanwhile, Melbourne Renegades look like a shadow of their former selves without the services of their opening batsman in Aaron Finch. The team has struggled all season long to score runs, and the absence of their best players is an issue that needs to be resolved. To make matters worse, Cameron White is not in a good form, and the responsibility to guide the team is on the youngsters. However, the bowling department is still sound, and they will be looking to lead the charge for the team’s fifth win of the season.
The match will begin at 1:45 PM IST.
