The marquee clash of the Thursday BBL11 double header sees the Renegades taking on the Stars in the 2nd Melbourne Derby of the year from 7.35pm!
Mr. Cricket is 19-2 on match predictions in the BBL so far this season and is hunting another winner on Thursday night.
Marvel Stadium, Thursday 13th January, 7.35pm (AEDT)
Predicted XI: Marcus Stoinis, Joe Clarke, Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell, Hilton Cartwright, Beau Webster, Clint Hinchliffe, Qais Ahmad, Brody Couch, Adam Zampa, Haris Rauf
Thursday night has to be the time Marcus Stoinis returns to the Stars line-up. He’s been teetering on the edge of selection for the last two games but if they don’t pull the trigger on him for this must-win clash, they may as well put the cue in the rack for season 2021-22. I fully expect him to be back at the top of the order here, pushing out either Joe Burns or Clint Hinchliffe.
The Stars went down tot he Scorchers on Tuesday in their 2nd game in under 24 hours. They’ve had a horror run with COVID and the rescheduling of the season and find themselves in 2nd last place with a 4-6 record. Finals are still in the equation for the Stars, but they’ll need to be good in the run home.
Predicted XI: Aaron Finch, Mack Harvey, Shaun Marsh, Nic Maddinson, Jake Fraser McGurk, Sam Harper, Will Sutherland, Cameron Boyce, Kane Richardson, Josh Labor, Zahir Khan
What a dismal performance with the bat it was from the Renegades yet again on Tuesday night. Their bowlers were actually admirable, keeping the Sixers to just 150 in Geelong, but for the third time this season, they were rolled for less than 110 runs as their batting continues to be a massive Achilles heel.
There’s not many changes the Renegades can make either. They seem hellbent on sticking with the ageing veterans in Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch at the top of the order, and outside of James Seymour, who has actually looked impressive this season, they don’t have many batsmen waiting in the wings. Look for the Renegades to hunt a massive international batsman like A.B. de Villiers in the off-season.
It’s make or break for the Melbourne Stars here. Three wins in their last four games will likely be enough to get them up into the top five, and they have some really winnable games against the Gades, Strikers, and Heat in their next three. I have no doubt that they were somewhat targeting these games for the return of Marcus Stoinis and potentially even Nathan Coulter Nile.
There’s not much to like about the Renegades at the moment and as the Stars continue to get key players back in the line-up, I am beginning to become a believer once more.
Joe Clarke has been on an absolute tear in the back half of the season. Granted he was dropped down the order a bit on Tuesday night and scored just 17 in the run chase, but I think that was mainly due to rest as he scored a brilliant, match-winning 83 just the night before. His last four knocks before Tuesday read 52, 85, 52, 83. Should be back at the top of the order on Thursday night.
We are combining Clarke with a bit of a safer leg in Shaun Marsh to pass 10 runs. The hard hitting lefty has done so in 74% of his Big Bash games games since BBL07 and compiled 39 off 36 in the loss to the Sixers.
Joe Clarke 20+ Runs
Shaun Marsh 10+ Runs
