Who will win Sixers vs Renegades?

The Melbourne Renegades' rise and fall have been a remarkable case study in recent years. Having climbed all the way to the title in 2018/19 it looked like the red half of Melbourne would have bragging rights for quite some time.

However, the fall has been dramatic with just 8 victories from 34 matches since they lifted the trophy. They have won back-to-back wooden spoons and are well on track to make that 3 in a row this season.

They have talent through the likes of Aaron Finch, Nic Maddinson, Sam Harper, Mackenzie Harvey, Mohammad Nabi, James Pattinson and Kane Richardson but for whatever reason it is failing to click consistently.

The Sixers on the other hand keep finding ways to win, with contributions coming from different sources and victories coming in different ways. Sean Abbott was the most recent star picking up 4 wickets before an unbeaten 40 with the bat guided his team home.

It is not impossible for the Renegades to win this game, but it is simply impossible to tip them.
