Adelaide Strikers will take on Melbourne Renegades in Match 29 of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020/21, at their home ground, the Adelaide Oval. The Renegades are languishing at the bottom of the points table right now. The Strikers have been up and down and will look to pile on Renegades’ miseries to get back on track. 

Ground details and team combination

The Adelaide Oval has hosted only two games this season so far. Otherwise, it is one of busiest T20 venues in Australia. In the eight T20s at this venue in 2020, wickets fell at an average of 21.1 runs and 16.1 balls apart. Both the pacers and the spinners have a more or less equal say. 

The spinners’ economy rate (7.3) is significantly better than the fast bowlers (8). But when it comes to the runs per wicket and balls per wicket ratio, the pacers are slightly ahead as they have struck once every 22 runs (Spinners: 22.7) and 16.5 deliveries (Spinners: 18.8) balls apart. In the two games this BBL season, the pacers have taken wickets at 18.9 runs apiece, striking at 14.9 balls per wicket, both the second best amongst all venues. 

The average first innings total since January 2020 at the Adelaide Oval is 157 while in the second innings it drops down to 137.

Suggested Team

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms we come up with six different teams that could fetch crucial points.

Captain Selection

Rashid Khan has been the man to strike whenever the Strikers have needed a wicket. In the previous game, no one except Rashid was able to get into the wicket’ column. Rashid has also enjoyed the Adelaide Oval. He has bagged three wicket here in two games, striking every 14 deliveries. His economy-rate - 6.7 runs per over - is a testimony to his domination at this venue. He would be keen to further improve those numbers against a diffident batting line-up like Renegades. Not to forget, he contributed with the bat as well. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Rashid could pick up 1-2 wickets in this match.

X-Factors

While the Strikers have been up and down with their batting, Alex Carey has found his form. Despite missing two games, he is the highest run-scorer for them, scoring 192 runs at an average of 38.4. Two games ago, against Scorchers, Carey carried the whole innings forward with a knock of 82 in a team total of 146. He is most likely to bat at three now which gives him more scoring opportunities. He also provides crucial points as a wicketkeeper. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Carey could score 13-30 runs in this match.

In a team which has folded for a double-digit score thrice in the tournament, Shaun Marsh seems to be the only batsman who is likely to get a big score. With 247 runs, he is Renegades' highest run-scorer this season - 115 runs ahead of the second best. He was in terrific form in Shield cricket and has backed it up with three BBL fifties this season. Two matches ago, he scored a pristine 87 which spoke enormously about his batting form. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Marsh could score 16-39 runs in this match.

Jack Prestwidge was the only silver lining of Renegades’ disastrous performance in their last game against Perth Scorchers. He was both their best bowler and best batsman, scoring 33 runs after taking two wickets for 32 runs with the ball. It was only the second match of the season for Prestwidge and the 24-year old would like to build on it. 

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Prestwidge could score 3-12 runs and pick up 0-1 wickets in this match.
