Melbourne Renegades will face off against the Brisbane Heat in the 49th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21. Both Cricket teams have been really fired up in recent times. They will want to win this game and leaving their mark on the tournament once again.
Home turf, recent success, youngsters wearing big shoes and the bowlers doing well – make some factors that the Melbourne Renegades would carry into the Marvel stadium with them. They may be out of the competition for a top four finish but Aaron Finch and company can very well dent Brisbane Heat’s chances on Saturday. The home team also come off a thrilling win against the Stars on the same pitch only hours ago, so it is much of a ‘play for the pride’ Renegades are acing at the moment.
The last time Brisbane Heat saw a win coming their way was when they faced Melbourne Renegades last week. Since then, Heats have faced two disappointing losses that keep them on the fence for the top four finish. Their bowling attack has been facing a slump and has leaked a tally of 371 runs in the last 40 overs they’ve bowled. With the bat, the big names – Marnus Labuschagne, Joe Denly, Chris Lynn and Joe Burns – have crumbled and the Heats would want to right this wrong as they make a stride towards the knock outs.
Brisbane Heat and the Melbourne Renegades have faced each other 13 times. The Renegades have won ten matches and the Heat have won three matches.
When the sides met only last week, it was Brisbane Heat, who won comfortably. While the odds definitely favour Chris Lynn, Melbourne Heat come off a breathtaking win in their Derby game. They’ve not had the best of the season, but with their young crop firing, the Renegades are very much in the game. The Finch-Marsh opening pair seem to be out of place and the team’s over dependency on them cost Renegades the season but given Brisbane’s bowling woes, Melbourne should take this game easily.
