REN vs SIX, 21th Match Preview
Match 21 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League sees Melbourne Renegades go head to head with Sydney Sixers at the GMHBA Stadium on Friday evening. The Renegades won their first three matches but have since lost two in a row. Sydney Sixers lost their opening two before winning their last three. Melbourne Renegades were the surprise package in the opening matches of the tournament but need to end their losing run as soon as possible. It will be very tough to beat an in-form Sydney Sixers in this game. Sydney Sixers were always expected to challenge at the top of the BBL table again this season and their recent form shows that they are still one of the best teams. They were comfortable winners in the reverse fixture on Wednesday.

REN vs SIX 21th Match Probable winners:
Before the start of this season, most commentators would have expected Sydney SIxers to have no problems against Melbourne Renegades. But it was the Renegades who had a great start to the season with the Sixers losing successive games. It will be very interesting to see how both teams approach this game after Sydney Sixers were largely untroubled at the SCG on Wednesday. We are predicting a close contest with Sydney Sixers having too much quality in their bowling for Melbourne Renegades. Considering the team combination, Sydney Sixers is expected to win this match.
