The Brisbane Heat will face off against the Melbourne Renegades in match number 39 of the Big Bash season 2020-21. It will be a close game between two Cricket Team sides trying to win more games. Both teams will want to take back the points and go up the table.
Brisbane Heat was very close to winning four matches on the trot in this season of the Big Bash League. However, they ended on the losing side in their last match against the defending champions Sydney Sixers. The match went right down to the final ball of the match. Captain Chris Lynn was again the pioneer in the run-scoring.
However, he did not get enough support from the other batsmen in the team. Heat could manage to score only 148 runs and they were bowled out. The bowling unit put in all their efforts to defend this total. However, they could not pick up the wicket of Dan Christian who scored an unbeaten 61 from just 38 balls to guide the Sixers past the winning line.

Melbourne Renegades finally got their winning luck back, as they ended their seven matches losing streak in the last match. They dramatically defeated the Adelaide Strikers and will look to build on the win they got. The Renegades were in trouble at one stage again, when the Strikers were 136/1 in the 15th over. However, the bowlers made a very good comeback and restricted the Strikers to 177/7 at the end of 20 overs.
During the chase, the batsmen responded very well to the efforts of their bowlers. Mohammed Nabi played a sensational inning in his last match for the Renegades before leaving for international duties. He smacked 71* from just 41 deliveries. He stitched up an unbeaten fifth-wicket partnership of 68 with Jake Fraser McGurk (29*), which guided the Renegades to a win with one ball to spare.

The Brisbane Heat and the Melbourne Renegades locked horns against each other 13 times. Heat won three encounters while the Renegades won ten.
Brisbane Heat can come out on top as they have been better than the Renegades in this season. With Chris Lynn firing, they have an advantage over the Renegades.
