MLR vs BH Team Previews

Melbourne Renegades

The Melbourne Renegades haven’t had the best of starts this season. They lost their opening fixture to the Sydney Sixers by 8 runs, while their second match was abandoned due to poor pitch conditions. As a result, they have just one point and are in the bottom half of the table.

With Quinton de Kock joining the team as an opener, the Renegades will hope to get a brisk start in this match. De Kock is likely to be joined by Joe Clarke at the top of the order. The middle order consists of strong performers with batsmen like Aaron Finch and Jake Fraser-McGurk.

Fraser-McGurk played an impressive knock of 48 off just 24 deliveries against Sydney and will be a key player. All-rounders Tom Rogers and Will Sutherland add depth to the batting. Coming to the bowling, Peter Siddle and Kane Richardson are likely to begin the attack with the new ball, while Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Adam Zampa are the two specialist spinners on the squad.

Brisbane Heat

The Brisbane Heat have won 2 of their 3 matches so far, while one match was abandoned due to rain. The team is currently sitting at the top of the points table with 5 points.

Colin Munro is in excellent form with the bat and is also the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 145 runs. He will open the batting along with Josh Brown. In the middle order, Sam Billings will be the key batsman along with Matt Renshaw and Nathan McSweeney.

Xavier Bartlett was excellent in the last match, picking up 3 wickets. He is the joint-highest wicket-taker of the tournament alongside Mitchell Swepson. Bartlett will be supported by Spencer Johnson and Michael Neser in the seam department, while Swepson will lead the spin department with Matthew Kuhnemann.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Docklands Stadium is well-balanced and we can expect an engaging contest between the bat and the ball. The seamers will get some movement with the new ball and the batsmen will need to tread carefully during the Powerplay.

As the ball gets older and softer, the batsmen will find it easier to play their shots. A score of around 165 should be a par score on this ground. There is limited help for the spinners and they will need to be disciplined with their line and length.

The weather is likely to be cloudy but there is no forecast of rain. The temperature will be between 18 to 23 degrees Celsius.
