Sydney were unlucky not to walk away with the points in Brisbane last week after a power outage saw the match end in a no result. Even so, the Thunder still find themselves sitting fourth on the ladder, but a win over the Renegades on Tuesday would see them leapfrog Melbourne on the ladder.
The Renegades also have a lot on the line in this one – a win would see them leapgfrog the Sydney Sixers for second. It’s a huge match with plenty of implications, leaving the bookies torn in the market.
Melbourne have won four straight over the Thunder dating back to 2014. They’ve also been particularly strong on the road this season boasting a strong 3-0 record. Look for another big game from league leading wicket-taker, Kane Richardson.
