Cricket Free Tips | BBL 2021/22, Match 48: Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars

The 48th match of the BBL 11 will see Melbourne Renegades against Melbourne Stars. Given their respective positions, both teams are in a must-win situation. Renegades are going through a demanding period, having dropped two games in a row against the Sixers and Thunder. They are currently in 6th place in the rankings with 15 points after 3 wins, 7 losses, and a no result.

Despite the return of their main players, the Melbourne Stars are still unable to regain their rhythm. The Perth Scorchers defeated them by 47 runs in their previous match. They are in seventh place in the rankings with 14 points after four victories and six losses. If they want to make the playoffs, they’ll have to adjust their hitting style.

 

Weather
Melbourne is anticipated to have temperatures ranging from 21 to 33 degrees Celsius. We expect a complete game because there is no rain on Thursday.

 

Pitch
Docklands Stadium has a decent batting surface. The batters will play their strokes freely since the ball will land neatly on the bat. Bowlers must be on their toes when bowling on this surface.
