Cricket Free Tips | BBL 2021/22, Match 45: Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Sixers

Melbourne Renegades will face Sydney Sixers in the 45th match of the BBL 2021/22. Melbourne Renegades are coming off a 129-run loss to Sydney Thunder in their previous match. They had been making steady progress in the second half of the campaign, but a humiliating defeat in their recent game has slowed their progress. They are in sixth place in the rankings with 15 points after three wins, six losses, and a no result.

After two consecutive losses to the Perth Scorchers, the Sydney Sixers have dropped to third place. In the last two matches, their batting has fallen short of expectations. They are still in the tournament and will have to show more character in the remaining games.

 

Weather
The temperature dropped from the mid-20s to the high teens as the day progressed. 

 

Pitch
