SS vs MR: The 18th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 12 will have Sydney Sixers take on Melbourne Renegades at Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday. The Sixers are currently languishing at sixth on the points table, having managed to secure only 2 wins out of four matches so far. However, the two wins have only come in the last two games.

Sydney Sixers Preview

After the early stutter, the Sixers are back in the business and would be looking to register their third consecutive win on Wednesday. They are coming into the game on the back of a 7-wicket win over Melbourne Stars.

The Sixers restricted the Stars to 150 runs in the first innings and then chased it down in 19.1 overs with 7 wickets in hand. Hayden Kerr was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 2 for 26 in 4 overs. With the bat, Skipper Moises Henriques led from the front as he played a match-winning knock of 52 runs in 32 deliveries.

Besides, the likes of James Vince (33 off 28) and Jordan Silk (30 off 20) also made valuable contributions.

On the other hand, Melbourne Renegades find themselves at number three, with three wins to their name out of four matches. However, their only defeat came in their last match and they would be looking to return back to winning ways.

Melbourne Renegades bowled brilliantly to bundle out the Hurricanes for just 122 runs in the first innings. The likes of Akeal Hosein and David Moody picked three wickets each. However, they made a meal of the run-chase, getting bowled out for 114 runs in the second innings.

The top-three batters, comprising Maddinson, Harper, and Jake Fraser got out in single-digit scores. Aaron Finch (13) and Jonathan Wells (26) were guilty of not converting the start into big scores. Will Sutherland fought hard for his 29-ball 40 and took the team as close to the target as possible but couldn’t take them over the line in the end.
