Cricket Match Preview:

Melbourne Renegades will look to strengthen their position at the top of the points table when they take on Brisbane Heat for the second time in the competition. They have happy memories against them, having beaten them recently by 8 wickets. The points table is so crowded at the moment that it is changing with almost every cricket game. Hence, a win here can take Heat three positions up and Renegades to the top of the points table.

Melbourne Renegades will be without their permanent skipper, Aaron Finch, once again as in their last cricket game. Tom Cooper led them from the front in the last cricket game and helped Renegades chase down the below-par total of 144 runs with ease. To restrict the lineup like Heat is a big deal and a lot of credit must go to their bowlers.

Brisbane Heat know that they need to start winning the cricket games sooner than later. They still have some breathing space but will soon run out of it if they lose a couple of more cricket games. The good news for them is the comeback in form of Brendon McCullum at the top of the order. It has mostly been about the trio of Max Bryant, McCullum and Chris Lynn and they would like others to step up as well in order to last the distance in the tournament.

In the last five games of cricket between the two sides, it has all been Melbourne Renegades as they have defeated Heat in every single one of those cricket games. It remains to be seen if Heat can get their own back.

Cricket Match Information:

Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat will be taking on each other for the second time in the tournament. In the first round of the cricket game between the two sides, Melbourne Renegades came out as a winner with 8 wickets win over Brisbane Heat. As of now, Melbourne Renegades are on the 2nd spot on the points table with 4 wins out of 7 cricket games, whereas Brisbane Heat are on the second last spot with just 2 wins out of 6 cricket games.

Melbourne Renegades

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Melbourne Renegades had a fantastic start to the tournament. However, they came second in the game of cricket against the Sydney Sixers. Since then, they have been struggling in the tournament. They, however, managed to win their last couple of games of cricket. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven as their last cricket game.  

Here is our prediction of Melbourne Renegades’ playing XI:

  • Marcus Harris
  • SB Harper
  • BJ Webster
  • TLW Cooper
  • MW Harvey
  • Dan Christian
  • Mohammad Nabi
  • JD Wildermuth
  • CJ Boyce
  • JM Mennie
  • Usman Shinwari

Brisbane Heat

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Brisbane Heat, under Chris Lynn’s captaincy, got off to a disastrous possible start. They lost all the first three cricket games they played. Then they managed to win two cricket games. Our prediction is there will be at least one change in their playing eleven compared to the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Brisbane Heat’s playing XI:

  • Chris Lynn
  • Brendon McCullum
  • Max Bryant
  • Marnus Labuschange
  • Matt Renshaw
  • Ben Cutting
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman
  • JJ Peirson
  • MJ Swepson
  • James Pattinson
  • B Doggett

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Marcus Harris looked good in the last T20 cricket game. He was part of Australian test cricket team so the transition from a longer format of the cricket game to the shortest format would not have been easier. Our prediction is to expect a good knock from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

This venue is the home cricket ground for Melbourne Renegades. They have had a relatively good record in the venue. Our prediction is of a score of around 160 by the team batting first. Conditions are expected to be dry. Brisbane Heat will have to be at top of their game to win this game of cricket.

Our Prediction:

Melbourne Renegades will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. They are on the 2nd spot on the points table and would like to maintain that spot. Hence, our prediction is of a Melbourne Renegades’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Marcus Harris (MR) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Usman Shinwari (MR) – 2 or more wickets
