MLR vs SDS: Melbourne Renegades have never made it to Big Bash final and would have their eyes on it when they meet Sydney Sixers at Docklands Stadium in the second semi-final of BBL08. They have been helped by Sam Harper and Tom Cooper excellent run with the bat while Kane Richardson, Cameron Boyce and Dan Christian have been exceptional with the ball in the entire tournament.
The Sixers are not playing at their backyard but still have a great chance to meet Melbourne Stars in the finale of BBL 08. Bowling has been their strong suit this edition, with Sean Abbott (21), Steve O’Keefe and Tom Curran at the helm. Plus, Moises Henriques can come to the fore as he would be itching to make a mark after a mediocre tournament by his standards.
