Melbourne Renegades have won both their matches of the tournament till now while Sydney Sixers are coming off defeats in their first two matches.

Interestingly, Sydney Sixers have beaten Melbourne Renegades four times in the last five matches played between the two teams. The match will be played at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne which is the home ground of the Melbourne Renegades. However, they have lost three of the last four matches played at this venue.

The Renegades brought in Kelvin Smith in place of all-rounder Will Sutherland in the last match. The team would rely on Sam Harper and Cameron White who have had one good outing each in the Big Bash League. Tim Ludeman who was expected to be one of the pillars has not been able to score till now.

Apart from Daniel Christian, Mohammad Nabi is another world-class all-rounder that the team has. Nabi contributed 48 against Adelaide Strikers. Along with Nabi, Daniel Christian and Kane Richardson will be the lead bowlers.

Daniel Hughes and Jordan Silk have made an impact for the Sixers with half-centuries against Perth Scorchers. Moses Henriques and Joe Denly have not fired till now but are expected to come good sooner than later.

Tom Curran, Sean Abbott and Steve O'Keefe will form the core of their bowling line up.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
