The Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers will lock horns in Match No. 54 of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23 on Tuesday, January 24. The match will take place at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne.

The Strikers, led by Travis Head, have got themselves in a big hole. From once topping the points table, they are currently placed sixth with 10 points and a net run rate of -0.108. The fact that the Strikers have lost four matches in a row hasn’t helped them.

The Strikers need to win their next match to have any chance of advancing to the next round. They lost to table-toppers Perth Scorchers in their previous match. After the Strikers were bowled out for 92, the Scorchers chased down the target with 53 balls left.

The Renegades, led by stand-in skipper Aaron Finch, are fourth in the table with 12 points and a net run rate of -0.083. A win will take them through to the next round. But a loss will leave them in dire straits with the Strikers and Sydney Thunder breathing down their necks.

The side will go into the game after a 10-run loss at the hands of the Scorchers. After being put in to bat first, the Scorchers racked up a huge score of 212 for five on the back of Cameron Bancroft’s 95-run knock. Aaron Finch scored 76 off 35, but his knock was in vain.
