Melbourne Renegades will face off against the Hobart Hurricanes in the 55th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21. Both teams will be looking forward to putting in a good showing in this match. A win would be a great morale booster for either team.
The Melbourne Renegades have arguably experienced their worst BBL season this year. To put it in simple words, nothing has clicked for them. Renegades are hold the wooden spoon with three wins, 10 losses and 13 points from their 13 matches of the league. Sam Harper is their top run-scorer with 332 runs. However, they would want to finish the game with the likes of Shaun Marsh – who has scored 300 runs – to fire. In the bowling department, Peter Hatzoglou tops their charts with 16 wickets against his name.
A faint chance to qualify hangs on Hurricanes’ head as they would hope to see Sydney Thunder fail. Placed at the fifth rung of the table with 7 wins, 6 losses and 27 points from their 13 matches makes it a tricky situation for Hobart. They need a compulsory win and by a good margin. Their form says two win in five matches. Nathan Ellis has been their best bowler with 20 wickets at an average of 19 and an economy rate of 8.03 against his name. Ben McDermott is the top run-score with 401 runs, D’Arcy Short with 316 runs coming next.
Melbourne Renegades and the Hobart Hurricanes have faced each other 12 times. The Renegades have won six matches and the Hurricanes have won six matches.
Both the teams haven’t been faring all the well, but given the teams and more importantly the form, Hobart Hurricanes should bag this game. Matthew Wade blew open for the Hurricanes in their last game, getting a fine 86. D’Arcy Short also got amongst runs. Assuming, they can carry their form, choose batting first and score 180+ runs, a win is in vision. Dawid Malan can be a game changer too. On the other hand Melbourne Renegades look a duller side, no player really stepping up to win a game.
