Watch Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades live and free

Posted: 12 January 2020 9:00 am

The Adelaide Strikers need a win to restart their season and a home clash with the winless Melbourne Renegades might be just what they need.

After their first match of BBL|09 was abandoned due to smoke in Canberra, the Adelaide Strikers reeled off 3 straight wins to signal their intent. But they couldn't capitalise on that superb start, following it up with 3 consecutive defeats to sit in 4th place at the time of writing.

Next up they take on a Renegades outfit that must be wondering what on earth is going on. Champions a year ago, they are still chasing their first win through eight matches in an extraordinary fall from grace.

This is another match Channel 7 has chosen not to broadcast. Kayo Sports and Foxtel are showing all 56 games of the BBL season (we detail the differences below), while Channel 7 is showing 40 matches. It's worth noting Channel 7 also can't stream games on 7Plus.

History of Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades

These 2 teams have met 11 times, with the South Australian outfit holding a strong 7-4 advantage to date. The Strikers have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between them and the last 2 in a row. None of this adds up to a lot of hope for the bottom-placed Renegades.

Who will win Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades?

The Renegades have to win a game eventually… don't they? Their wretched, scarcely believable season includes an 18-run loss to the Strikers in Melbourne on 29 December.

Led by Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch and Kane Richardson, the Melbourne side has more than enough talent to win games in the Big Bash. But momentum is such a critical factor in professional sport and they clearly have zero of that.

Alex Carey is having a great season for Adelaide and Rashid Khan has 12 wickets to his name, including a hat trick in a losing cause against the Sydney Sixers on 8 January.

We don't believe the Renegades will go through the whole season without a win, but we also don't think that first breakthrough will occur in Adelaide on Sunday.
