THU vs REN Dream11 Prediction: Sxith-placed Sydney Thunder would take on the bottom-placed Melbourne Renegades in the second clash of BBL 2019-20, with the first faceoff being won by the Thunder by a margin of 6-wickets.
Openers Usman Khawaja (66) and Alex Hales (68) had put up a match-winning display in the previous outing and would be backed to go full-throttle in the much-coveted game at Manuka Oval. In the points tally, the Thunder are seated at the 6th spot with four wins, as many losses, no result, and 9 points to their name, and a victory in the coming game would shift them to the 3rd spot with 11 points in their kitty.
Melbourne Renegades, on the other hand, have had a dismal run this time around, with nine defeats in as many contests played so far.
In spite of the swashbuckling performances from Shaun Marsh, Beau Webster, and Sam Harper, the defending champions failed to muster a sole win in BBL 2019-20. The Men in Red started their concurrent T20 season with a defeat at the hands of Sydney Thunder and since they are out of contention for the knockouts, the Daniel Christian-captained side would look to settle the scores amidst the conditions of Canberra.
