BBL|08 Semi-Final 2: Melbourne Renegades (8-6) v Sydney Sixers (8-6) @ Marvel Stadium
Friday 15th February 2019 7:40pm AEDT

Throwing away the home ground advantage might not be the worst result for the Sixers as both sides won the away matchup against the other this BBL|08.

Both sides will be both missing an import as Mohammad Nabi and Tom Curran have been recalled by Afghanistan and England respectively.

Not expecting a victory because it's the Gades after all, but i'll be in Melbourne this weekend anyway so if we pull off a win tonight i'll defnitely be going along! Which is an exciting though. Watch The Sixers ruin it though.

Also the Sixers can't play two bad games in a row. Not with what's on the line anyway We'll have our work cut out for us.

No idea who will win this one, especially after the performance the Sixers put up last Sunday

As a Renegades fan, I'm really worried about this game. This is exactly the type of game we normally lose. We have no real advantage at Marvel, I was actually hoping we played at the SCG as we have only lost one game inter-state (Hobart) all year. Lyon and O'Keefe will likely bowl really well on what is normally a slow wicket.

For me, Marcus Harris could be the key. If he can bat a bit smarter and stop trying to belt every single ball for 6, he could build a really good innings and do some damage later on in the innings. He's due to go on and make a score. Finch and Cooper are in better form and are close to making a decent score. Cam White's form is a worry, but he has class and experience. I believe he'd benefit from dropping the down the order.

I've got absolute faith in our bowling unit, I expect them to perform very well.

No excuses for the Renegades, if they're good enough they'll win this.

Wed be better off batting one down from the start rather than playing old man White. Hes a liability these days, all hes gonna do is go cheaply and give the Sixers an easy wicket that puts pressure on everyone else.

Been a great in the BBL but age has beaten him now.

Interesting choice given what happened last time and Sixers strength is their spinners
