REN vs STR, the Renegades have 12 points and are in fourth place in the table. The Strikers are two points behind them in sixth place. The Renegades gave top of the table Perth Scorchers a very close game on Sunday but were unable to get the win they needed. Their place in the play-offs is still not confirmed.

Topmost Picks for REN vs STR Dream11 Prediction, 54th Match:
Top Picks – Adelaide Strikers
- Wes Agar – The fast bowler has taken 17 wickets at an average of 19.58 in the tournament and should enjoy the conditions in Docklands.
- Matthew Short – Dismissed for a four-ball duck on Friday, the opener’s average in BBL 2022-23 has now dropped to under 40. However, his team need him to find his form again for this game if they are to get back to winning ways.
Top Picks – Melbourne Renegades
- Aaron Finch – The skipper ended a poor run of form with an uncharacteristically aggressive 76 not out from 35 balls on Sunday. He hit five sixes in the innings.
- Tom Rogers – There was another wicket for Rogers in the defeat against Perth Scorchers. Only the top two BBL wicket takers of all time have dismissed more batters this season than Rogers.

REN vs STR 54th Match Probable winners:
Adelaide Strikers were the early pace-setters in the tournament but their team is now without Chris Lynn and Rashid Khan. However, they still have more match-winners with bat and ball than Melbourne Renegades. A win for either team will see them finish in the top five and progress to the play-off stage and even a defeat for Melbourne Renegades may still see them qualify as well. However, both teams come into this game in poor form and they require their experienced players to step up and produce a big performance. Melbourne Renegades have some top players like Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch who have seen it all before but have not been in brilliant form over this campaign. Considering the team combination, Adelaide Strikers is expected to win this match.
