Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades are placed at the 5th and 6th spot in the points table. Both the teams have won two and lost two of the four matches that they have played.

Melbourne Renegades are coming on the back of two consecutive defeats. They will have some pressure to turn things around. What will go in their favour is that they have beaten Adelaide Strikers in the earlier encounter this season.

The Renegades have replaced Andrew Fekete with Joe Mennie in their 13-man squad. Beau Webster will also continue playing in place of Tim Leudman. Sam Harper and Cameron White will be key with the bat along with Mackenzie Harvey.

Mohammad Nabi and Daniel Christian will give the team the much required all-round prowess as they would chip in with both the bat and ball along with Jack Wildermuth. Kane Richardson and Cameron Boyce are the other lead bowlers.

Adelaide Strikers would miss the services of Peter Siddle who has been added to the Australian Test squad. Wes Agar has been included in the squad. The Strikers are also missing Travis Head. In his absence, Alex Carey, Colin Ingram and Matthew Short will lead the batting line up.

Carey has currently scored most runs for the team and is coming on the back of two half centuries. Ingram has also found form with a match-winning 43-ball 75. Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake and Ben Laughlin will be the main threats with the ball.
