Melbourne Renegades will take on Sydney Sixers in the 21st league game of the Big Bash League 2022-23. Both teams faced each other on Wednesday as well, and the Renegades would want to take revenge here. The pitch here will again be looked at with close interest.

After winning the initial three matches, the Renegades have now lost two games on the trot. The likes of Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb joined the team in the last match, and they will strengthen the batting of the side. It is safe to say that the bowlers have done really well for the Renegades.

Sydney Sixers have won their last three matches, and they are in great form at the moment. This team does not rely on one single player, and this is the biggest strength of this side. They would want to continue their good form in this match as well.

Simonds Stadium pitch report

The Simonds Stadium in Geelong is set to host its 2nd game of the ongoing BBL season. This is the alternate home ground for the Renegades in the BBL. Renegades registered a win in the first match here, and they would want to do the same in this match as well.

The track here at the Simonds Stadium is quite difficult for batting, and the last match proved the same, where Renegades needed Andre Russell’s masterclass to chase the target of 138 runs. There is help for the pacers on this wicket, and they will enjoy the conditions here yet again. In the 2nd innings, even the spinners will come into play.

A total of 6 T20 World Cup games were also played here, where the average 1st innings score was just 143 runs. One side of the boundary is very big and the outfield is also quite slow here, which makes batting difficult here. Both captains may opt to bat first upon winning the toss.
