Melbourne Renegades Vs Adelaide Strikers Prediction 5/1/21
The Renegades have relied on Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh for their runs this tournament, so they are no doubt going to badly miss Marsh.
Add to that the additional loss of Rilee Rossouw, and an already struggling batting line up now looks even weaker.
For the Strikers, there are chinks in their armour, mainly in the batting.
While in their bowling department, Rashid Khan has really hit his straps now. He is also been well supported by Danny Briggs, Peter Siddle and Wes Agar.
The bowling is working together well as a unit and winning games for the Strikers.
Even though Aaron Finch is capable of making a match winning knock, there is no real sign of form coming from the Renegades.
Meaning I can only see a win for the Strikers.
