This will be the first meeting of the Brisbane Heat with Aaron Finch-led Melbourne Renegades. After having a disappointing start to the tournament, Brisbane Heat gained the momentum back as they maintained a three-match winning streak.

The pitch at Manuka Oval in Canberra has remained pretty good throughout the season. It’s a great pitch to bat on generally as the ball comes on nicely to the bat for the most part. Towards the second half of the game, slower bowlers do find some purchase, and spinners might have a role to play. The weather forecast at Canberra for the day of the game is clear and we should get a full match.
