Melbourne Renegades reiterated their importance in the tournament with a win over Melbourne Stars in the recently concluded encounter. Even though Renegades are still pretty much out of contention for the race to the playoffs, they can still play a massive role in this tournament. They spoiled Star’s chances to easily qualify for the playoffs in the last match and would want to do that against Brisbane Heat as well.
On paper, Melbourne Renegades have always had a decent lineup, but lack of execution has cost them. Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh both haven’t really contributed as much for the team as the fans and the management would have wanted. Finch, in particular, hasn’t scored a fifty, yet in the tournament.
Just a couple of matches ago, Brisbane Heat were looking all set to qualify for the playoffs. However, a couple of back to back losses has really hurt their chances. They are not stationed on the seventh position on the points table and need to win both of their remaining fixtures. Given that they do not have a net run-rate to be proud of, Brisbane Heat will be under tremendous pressure to not only register a win here but also do so with a margin as big as possible.
Brisbane Heat bat deep with a batsman as good as Jimmy Peirson coming in to bat at number seven. However, with almost no player having scored consistently in the tournament, the confidence isn’t just there on their batting lineup.
It’s a brilliant wicket to bat but the pitch will get slower as the match progresses. Chasing might get difficult here.
The weather will be bright and sunny on the match day.
The wicket is on the slower side so chasing can be difficult here.
Melbourne Renegades Predicted XIs:
Aaron Finch (c), Shaun Marsh, Sam Harper (wk), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Mackenzie Harvey, Beau Webster, Imad Wasim, Jack Prestwidge, Josh Lalor, Zak Evans, Peter Hatzoglou
Brisbane Heat Predicted XIs:
Joe Burns, Chris Lynn (c), Joe Denly, Marnus Labuschagne, Lewis Gregory, Jimmy Peirson (wk), Jack Wildermuth, Mark Steketee, Xavier Bartlett, Mitchell Swepson, Max Bryant

To get more Big Bash betting tips and to know every moment update keep visiting our website. Brisbane Heat will win this match. This team can win against the Renegades if their players perform well. They have a number of quality players in their squad naming- Lynn, Labuschagne, Burns, who can turn the game and can do the unexpected. The Heat have had a decent tournament, while not having Lynn for most of the games. Whereas Renegades don’t look to be getting a win still, they just don’t deserve to be called a good team this tournament, despite having so many good players. The Renegades team who do not have enough experience in the batting department will have to play to their full potential to challenge the strong Heat team.
