Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Sixers Betting Tips 11/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 45th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Melbourne Renegades take on Sydney Sixers at GMHBA Stadium, South Geelong, Victoria on Jan 11 (Tuesday). The match is to begin at 1:45 pm IST.

Teams Status

Melbourne Renegades

Melbourne Renegades’ fruitful and lucky start to 2022 finally came to an end in their last game as they were hammered by the red-hot Sydney Thunder.

The Gades had previously taken advantage of others’ misery by notching wins over virus-weakened Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars. An abandoned match over Sydney Sixers had also netted them a share of the spoils.

Sydney Thunder had a cleaner bill of health so they proceeded to remind the Gades of their level in a 129-run mauling.

The Renegades have been dealt twin blows. Afghanistan star Mohammad Nabi has left them due to family reasons whereas veteran pacer James Pattinson has also withdrawn citing, possibly due to bubble fatigue and ongoing physical soreness.

Sydney Sixers

It does not happen often but Sydney Sixers are currently on a two-match losing streak. The two-time defending champs are the winningest side ever in the competition but have been weakened somewhat due to the virus and injuries.

That said, all three of their losses so far this season have come against genuine contenders and not a middling side the size of the Gades.

Their most frequent conquerors this season have been Perth Scorchers, to whom they have back-to-back defeats in their last two games.

In the Jan 9 game, the Sixers posted a 152-run target, to which the Scorchers got to with an over and five wickets to spare.

This will be Pakistan star Shadab Khan’s last game of this campaign as the Pakistan Super League is around the corner. With Ben Manenti and Steve O’Keefe out injured, it means Lloyd Pope and Todd Murphy will have to burden the weight of spin bowling for the remainder of the tournament.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney to win @ 1.65

Sydney Sixers have won four of their last five games against Melbourne Renegades. Granted that they are currently a bit short and have copped back-to-back losses, they should still find enough in the gas tank to beat a side such as Melbourne. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Josh Philippe to score more than 25.5 runs @ 1.87

After a quiet few games, Sydney Sixers opener Josh Philippe finally got some runs (32) in the last game. The 24-year-old looked in good touch too, smacking a trio of sixes in his 32-run knock-up top. We think that he might be about to resume his crazy run production from the start of the tournament. The odds for this bet have been sourced from Parimatch.


These sides saw their first game on New Year’s day abandoned due to rain. Melbourne were lucky to walk away with a share of the spoils. This time they should not expect any free lunches.
