Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades will resume their Big Bash League rivalry after 13 months in the 36th match of the ongoing 12th season of the tournament at the Adelaide Oval tomorrow. Facing each other for the first time in this season this late, both the teams will also be locking horns in their last league match after a couple of weeks.

Played at the same venue, the last match between these two teams had witnessed the visitors getting bundled out for 100 chasing a mediocre 150-run target.

It is quite evident from the below mentioned numbers that Adelaide have mostly dominated Melbourne over the years. Speaking of playing at home, Strikers have won 37 and lost 27 out of their 65 matches at this iconic stadium. Renegades, on the other hand, have won four and lost five out of their nine matches here. Average run rate of AS (8.4) and MR (7.54) at the Adelaide Oval also varies significantly.
