Match 14 of the BBL 2020 has the Melbourne Renegades taking on Sydney Thunder at the Manuka Oval.
Sydney Thunder have won two of their three BBL 2020 games so far, with the likes of Daniel Sams and Callum Ferguson playing starring roles, but Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales are yet to find their feet. However, the Thunder's bowling attack has more than made up with strong performances as the team head into this BBL 2020 game high on confidence.
Meanwhile, their opponents, Melbourne Renegades come into this BBL 2020 game on the back of two defeats.
Despite Sam Harper and Rilee Rossouw coming up with the goods in the previous BBL 2020 game, the Renegades were undone by Ben McDermott and the Hurricanes. Although it is still early days in the BBL 2020, the Renegades will look to bounce back to winning ways.
Despite the Thunder having momentum on their side, they start off as the underdogs against a well-oiled Renegades unit. With some of the best T20 players playing at the Manuka Oval, we should be in for a cracking fixture in BBL 2020.

Match: Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Renegades, Match 14
Date: 26th December 2020, at 12:40 PM IST
Venue: Manuka Oval, Canberra.
As seen in the previous BBL games at the Manuka Oval, an even contest between bat and ball beckons on Saturday.
While the runs may flow initially, the pitch could slow down as the game progresses. That would bring the spinners into play, and the pacers could resort to change of pace.
With this game being an evening fixture, both teams could look to bat first after winning the toss. 160 runs should be a competitive total, given the nature of the surface.
