Adelaide Strikers (STR) take on Melbourne Renegades (REN) in the sixth match of Big Bash League 2021-22 at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide on Thursday, December 9.

STR vs REN Dream11 prediction

The two sides have already played each other once in the opening stages of the tournament with REN coming out on top in a keenly contested match, having won by two runs. STR on the other hand looked out of place in both the departments in the only match they played in.

REN are expected to win the reverse fixture and do a double over STR on account of a more disciplined batting and all-round attack.

STR vs REN Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22

Top tip: Best batter

Mackenzie Harvey is the batter to watch out for in the REN camp. The left-handed opener scored a 46-ball 56 against STR in the opening match and would be eager to replicate his performance yet again. The Australian should make it to most of the fantasy sides given his credentials with the bat. 

Top tip: Best bowler

REN spinner Zahir Khan scalped 3/24 against STR to have a successful start to the BBL campaign. The 22-year-old was influential in restricting the opposition’s top-order with some fantastic display of spin bowling and should be a major force to reckon with in Thursday’s fixture against the same opponents. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Matthew Short is a fine all-round option for this contest. The STR player scored a quickfire 18-ball 29 against REN to lay the foundation for a perfect chase and also grabbed a wicket in the same match. The fantasy team captains should not miss out on a talented player like him in their squads.

Sam Harper qualifies as a smart wicket-keeping pick for this contest. The REN wicket-keeper scored a 28-ball 33 against STR while opening the batting and also chipped in with a dismissal behind the wickets. Available at 9.5 credits, he is a good buy.

STR vs REN probable playing XI

STR playing XI (probable): Jake Weatherald, Matthew Short, Harry Nielsen (wicket-keeper), Jonathan Wells, Ryan Gibson, Daniel Drew, George Garton, Rashid Khan, Daniel Worrall, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle (captain)

REN playing XI (probable): Sam Harper, Mackenzie Harvey, Jake Fraser-McGurk, James Seymour, Mohammad Nabi, Will Sutherland, Jonathan Merlo, James Pattinson, Kane Richardson (captain), Reece Topley, Zahir Khan
