Melbourne Renegades

At the beginning of the season, Melbourne Renegades, the defending champions, might not have imagined that they would end up at the bottom of the points table this year. They couldn’t win a single match in their first 9 outings of this season. In the tenth game, they finally registered the first victory over Sydney Thunder and went on to defeat Brisbane Heat in the eleventh, after which they against faced two consecutive defeats against Hurricanes and Sixers. Aaron Finch’s century (68 balls 109) powered the side to post the total of 175 while batting first against Sydney Sixers in the previous game. However, the score proved to be below-par. Except for Sutherland (3.4 overs 24 for 1), all other bowlers were expensive. Eventually, Sixers won the match comprehensively in 18.4 overs with 7 wickets remaining.
Shaun Marsh (352 runs in last 10 matches) is the leading run-scorer followed by Beau Webster (316 runs in 10 innings) while Cameron Boyce leads to bowling section with his 12 wickets in previous 10 games followed by Kane Richardson with 6 wickets in 6 games.

Brisbane Heat

It was AB de Villiers blistering innings of 71 runs that included 6 sixes, which kept the team’s hope alive in the tournament. With just one match to go before the playoffs, they can hope to get some more off AB de Villiers’ bat. At Melbourne Cricket Ground, while playing against the top-ranked Melbourne Stars, Heat posted a total of 186 batting first after winning the toss. Lynn’s 34 and Labuschagne’s 13-balls 24 provided needed support to de Villiers who played the pivotal role.

The bowling unit collectively and heavily came down on Melbourne Stars batsmen to give their side the much-needed win which they got in 17.4 overs after bowling out Stars for 115. Swepson (3 for 31) Mujeeb (2 for 11), Pattinson (2 for 17) were the prime bowlers.
In the last 10 games, Chris Lynn (264 runs, strike rate 138.94) is the top-scorer for the team, followed by Matt Renshaw (158 runs, strike rate 123.43). Among the bowlers, Ben Laughlin (13 wickets) and Josh Lalor (9 wickets) are the key bowlers.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Venue Details

The venue for the match is Docklands Stadium, Melbourne. The surface looks very good for batting. The last match played here in this tournament was a high scoring match where Hobart Hurricanes scored 190 and eventually managed to win just by 4 runs.

 

Toss Prediction

There are no T20 International matches played on this ground. In BBL tournament, four matches are played here and highest and lowest totals in the first innings are 190 and 153 respectively. Two times the teams batting first have won and twice the teams chasing have won.
The team winning the toss should opt to bat first.

 

Winning Prediction

Overall, head to head statistics of Brisbane Heat is poor against Melbourne Renegades (In 12 encounters, Heat won just 3, Renegades won 9), while in this tournament, Renegades have performed badly to stay at the bottom of the points table. Renegades won just 2 from their 13 outings, while Heat won 6 matches and they are just one rank below the cut-off line.

Heat still holds a thin chance to make it to the playoffs if they win this game. AB de Villiers has shone in the last match, getting the required thrust at the right time for Brisbane Heat. Heat defeated the table-topper Melbourne Stars in the previous match, and now it could be the bottom ranker.
