The next match of the KFC BBL 2020 will see Thunders locking horns against the Renegades team
Sydney Thunder Team Updates:
Sydney Thunder has played some good cricket in the ongoing Big Bash League and has lost just one match so far.
Yet they find themselves in the 4th position on the points table.
Sydney Thunder is in great form and has won two back-to-back games after losing their first one against Melbourne Stars.
They are coming off a commanding 7-wicket win against Perth Scorchers and would hence be quite confident now.
In the last match, they restricted the opposition for just 152-5 and chased down the target with ease.
Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja will probably open the inning for the Sydney Thunder team.
Sydney’s batting is largely dependent on their middle and lower order which looks really strong right now.
Captain Callum Ferguson led from the front with a solid 61 in the last match and was well supported by Ben Cutting (29* off 16 balls) and Oliver Davies (36 off 22 balls).
If openers Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja can get going, then Sydney Thunder will be really hard to stop.
Callum Ferguson will lead the Sydney Thunder team as a Captain. He is also good Batsman.
Baxter Holt will do the wicket keeping for Sydney Thunder team.
Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green will take care of the spin bowling of the team.
Adam Milne , Daniel Sams and Nathan McCandrew will lead the pace attack of the team.
Adam Milne was excellent in the last game with his pace and bounce and gave away only 17 runs in his 4 overs.
Ben Cutting and Nathan McAndrew are also in a good flow.
Melbourne Renegades Team Updates:
Melbourne Renegades started the season well with a solid 7-wicket win against Perth Scorchers.
However, that demoralizing 145-run loss against Sydney Sixers really came at a bad time and led to another loss against Hobart Hurricanes by 6 wickets.
In the last match, the Renegades could only manage 157 on the board. Their batting needs to fire now and the likes of captain Shaun Marsh and Fraser-McGurk would need to take more responsibility.
The Renegades need to bounce back quicky if they want to climb up the points table.
Shaun Marsh and Aron Finch will probably open the inning for the REN team. Both are well known inning openers.
Sam Harper and Rile Rossouw will take care of the middle order.
The team would take heart from the performances of Sam Harper (66* off 52 balls) and Rilee Rossouw (59 off 40 balls) in the previous contest.
Shaun Marsh will lead the REN team as a Captain. He is also a good batsman.
Sam Harper will do the Wicket Keeping duty for his REN team.
Noor Ahmed will lead the spin attack of the team.
Will Sutherland , Josh Lalor and Kane Richardson will take care of the pace attack for his team.
