MLR vs SDT: The Sydney Showground Stadium will play the host for the 38th match of Big Bash League 2018-19 which will witness the hosts Sydney Thunder going up against Melbourne Renegades. With only a handful of games left before the tournament reaches its business end, both teams will look to grab the opportunities from both hands to secure their places for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Sydney Thunder had a dramatic ending to their last match which was played against Brisbane Heat. Skipper Shane Watson’s magnificent ton which was also the first ton of this season of BBL went in vain as floodlight failure abandoned the game. Thunders have looked decent after winning 4 and losing 4 from 9 encounters and are holding the fourth position on the points table as of now. They will look to creep up a bit and consolidate their position among the top four.
