Melbourne Renegades will square off with Sydney Sixers in the 45th match of the BBL 2021/22 on Tuesday. Melbourne Renegades are heading into this match after a massive defeat over Sydney Thunder by 129 runs. They had made steady progress in the second half of the tournament, but a huge loss in their previous game has affected their momentum. With 3 wins, six losses, and a no result, they are at the sixth spot in the standings with 15 points.
Two back-to-back losses against Perth Scorchers pushed Sydney Sixers down to the third spot in the standings. The batting was below par for their standards in the last couple of matches. They are still very much in this tournament and need to show more character in the coming matches.
