Strikers set for second Renegades contest

07 January 2021

The Strikers triumphed in the first match between the two teams

The Adelaide Strikers have named an unchanged squad for Friday night's return Melbourne Renegades clash at Adelaide Oval.

The Strikers defeated the Renegades by 60 runs on Tuesday night, with an allround fielding performance backing a solid showing with the bat which raised them to a competitive 5/171.

 

Current owner of the BKT Golden Arm Wes Agar said his team won’t be resting on their laurels.

 

“(The Renegades) are a team that really has nothing to lose, they’re a team that we can go out and we have to be wary about, they can play with freedom and I think that’s something we have to focus on going into this game," he said.

“Aaron Finch is a massive threat and something that we need to be wary off, he’s a world-class player, he’s captain of the Australian white ball team for a reason, so we’ll have our plans in place and hopefully we can execute them.”
