In their previous match, both teams played each other where the Adelaide Strikers won the game in the same place by a margin of 59 runs. Strikers are put on the points table in the fourth position and want to proceed against their opposition with their winning combination.
At points table bottom, the Melbourne Renegades are currently languishing with 7 defeats in 8 matches they have played so far. At the start of the tournament, their only victory came against the 6th ranked Perth Scorchers. The side led by Aaron Finch will have to dig deep to make a place from hereon in the top 4.
It will be a sunny day with zero chance of precipitation, and the temperature will be about 30 degrees Celsius.
At the Adelaide Oval, with a lot on offer for the bowlers, a competitive track awaits the two sides. The spinners should also appreciate the extra bounce at the site, apart from early movement available off the pacers’ surface.
Early on, against the new ball, the batsmen would need to capitalize on the field restrictions. This will be critical for the fortunes of either side.
After winning the toss, both teams will look to bat first, with 160 being a reasonable total at this venue.
Alex Carey (c&wk), Philip Salt, Matt Renshaw, Jonathan Wells, Jake Weatherald, Ryan Gibson, Rashid Khan, Harry Conway, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle, Danny Briggs
Aaron Finch (c), Sam Harper (wk), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Mackenzie Harvey, Beau Webster, Kane Richardson, Imad Wasim, Jack Prestwidge, Josh Lalor, Noor Ahmad, Mohammad Nabi

In the tournament, the Melbourne Renegades were weak. The bowling now does the batting. On the other hand, the Adelaide Strikers defeated them in their last match. They look like a flat side, and we expect them to continue their winning run over the Renegades with all their bowlers in top form.
