Who will win Strikers vs Renegades?
The Renegades are certainly due. But their confidence is also rock bottom and with so much on the line we expect Jason Gillespie's Strikers to take advantage and the points. Adelaide import Rashid Khan is arguably the most impactful player in the competition while the in-form Jake Weatherald is an under-rated batsman.
