It’s pretty much now or never for the Melbourne Renegades but the side will have its work cut out for it after renewing pleasantries.
The sides played on Tuesday with the Strikers winning by 59 runs but it got heated late when Matt Renshaw gave Kane Richardson a send off and it should make it an interesting clash.

The Strikers won the toss and will bat first.
Carey's opens up on 'f*** off' send off
But speaking on RSN 927AM, Carey told the Breakfast Club that he didn't love the send off, despite the theatre of it.
“It [tension] was brewing a little bit … I don’t really love seeing it once someone’s out,” he said.
“I think once the batter is dismissed it’s probably time to move on from that contest and maybe it was a lingering around a little bit too long.”
He also gave fresh insight into how it happened.
“Everyone seems to like to send ‘Salty’ [Strikers batsman Phil Salt] off when he gets out … for some reason he’s normally on the end of a little send-off, that was brewing, and I think ‘Renners’ jumped on the back of that and when we got Kane out there was obviously a few words spoken,” Carey said.
“It’s about showing emotion and then letting it stay on the field and the boys did that, we had dinner in a pretty shared area and there was no food fights after either."
