The Melbourne Renegades and the Sydney Sixers are going to be taking on each other in the second BBL 08 semi-final. It is a contest that most people expected to take place at the Sydney Sixers home ground but a crushing defeat to the Melbourne Stars spoiled the net run-rate of the Sixers.
Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Renegades have both won four of their eight matches so far, but go into this game on the back of a defeat. Melbourne Renegades were dismissed for 91 in a 101-run defeat to Brisbane Heat last time out – their second score below 100 in this year’s competition, having only managed 99/9 the last time these teams met.
The Big Bash League semi-final between the Melbourne Renegades and the Sydney Sixers is going to be played at the Docklands Stadium, Melbourne. The weather is expected to be very good for cricket on match day. Sunny skies and no threat of rain has been forecast.
