Match Prediction Sydney Sixers v Melbourne Renegades, 30th Match 2021/22

A bottom-placed Melbourne Renegades run into a rampant Sydney Sixers side in the 30th game of this Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22. The International Sports Stadium in Coffs Harbour will be the venue for this game.

Melbourne Renegades started off with a two-run win against Adelaide Strikers but it’s all been downhill since then. They have lost five games in a row and are reeling at the bottom of the points table. Moreover, they haven’t even been able to accumulate a lot of Bash Boost points either and have a total of only five points (three from the only win and two from Bash Boost points).

On the other hand, Sydney Sixers have been absolutely dominant and are flying high at the top of the points table. The defending champions have returned with six wins and only one loss from the seven games they have played. In addition to this, they are currently on a four-match winning streak.

Not only on form, but Sydney Sixers are in-front even in terms of head to head record. Sydney Sixers have won nine games and Melbourne Renegades have won just five. Moreover, Sydney Sixers have won the last four games against Melbourne Renegades.

Head-to-head record

Wins: Melbourne Renegades 5, Sydney Sixers 9

Who will win today’s match Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Renegades, 30th Match BBL 2021/22??

Sydney Sixers have been the form team and they are roaring at the top. The batting has relied on two players. Josh Philippe at the top and skipper Moises Henriques in the middle. The likes of Jordan Silk and James Vince have chipped in decently with the bat. Meanwhile, left-arm seamer Hayden Kerr and Sean Abbott have shared 23 wickets between them while the others have chipped in well. Their only loss came against Hobart Hurricanes when the latter smashed 213 and apart from that, be it chasing or batting first, Sydney Sixers have been convincing.

The batting has let Melbourne Renegades down more often than not. Only two batters have gone past the 100-run mark so far this season and the ‘Men in Red’ have posted a total of 160+ in just one game – 185 while chasing 207. Meanwhile, the bowling has been slightly inconsistent but they’ve been better than the batters. The likes of Zahir Khan, Reece Topley and Kane Richardson have been amongst the wickets. Mohammad Nabi’s all-round form and James Pattinson’s lack of wickets have been a significant cause of concern.
