Captaining a new-look Melbourne Renegades team, Aaron Finch has won the toss and chosen to bowl first in the BBL match against the Adelaide Strikers at Adelaide Oval.

The Renegades, who will join the second-placed Perth Scorchers on 12 points with a win on Tuesday, made three changes to the XI that beat the Hobart Hurricanes at Marvel Stadium on Saturday.

English all-rounder Matt Critchley and Sri Lankan legspinner Ruwantha Kellapotha appear for the first time, replacing fellow overseas tweakers Akeal Hosein and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who have both completed their nine-match stints.

Paceman David Moody has been recalled, coming in for Mackenzie Harvey.

The Strikers snapped a four-game losing streak in stunning style last Thursday, pulling off a competition-record run chase to down the Hurricanes.

Short celebrated his captaincy debut by raising the winning runs to move to his maiden T20 ton and close to within three runs of teammate Chris Lynn for Golden Bat honours.

That was the last BBL game of the summer for wrist-spinning wizard Rashid Khan, who has travelled to South Africa to captain MI Cape Town in the newly-formed SA20.

The Strikers, who will leapfrog the Renegades and Sydney Thunder into third spot with a victory, named spin twins Ben Manenti and Cam Boyce, with seamer Henry Thornton missing out.
