Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers – Match Preview

The Renegades lost to the Scorchers on both occasions during last season’s BBL. In the 2018-19 tournament, Perth were beaten both times.

The Melbourne franchise have suffered highs and lows, winning the eighth Big Bash but coming last in the ninth. The Scorchers have won three BBL finals.

Where: Bellerive Oval, Hobart

When: Saturday, 12 December 2020

Start time: 13:45 IST (08:15 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This venue would have hosted the first match of this season’s BBL. If the same pitch is used, it’ll be interesting to see if it slows down a bit. The ground has hosted three T20Is, with an average first-innings score of about 170.

Weather conditions: There is a small chance of rain in Hobart on Saturday. High humidity levels, similar to those experienced by Australia’s IPL stars in the UAE recently, are expected.

Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers – Team News

The Renegades have had to rebuild after a disastrous 2019-20 campaign – just one season after winning the Big Bash.

Dan Christian, Tom Cooper and Jack Wildermuth have left. But Josh Lalor, James Pattinson, Mitch Perry and Jack Prestwidge have arrived.

The Melbourne team will have South African batsman Rilee Rossouw for the whole season, while other overseas stars will arrive and leave at different times in the campaign.

The Scorchers have largely stuck with their core, with hardly any local departures and arrivals. They won’t have England all-rounder Chris Jordan back, though.

Mitchell Marsh is a keen captain, but injury-prone. He will have to navigate this during a challenging period in his career.

Perth have New Zealand star Colin Munro for their whole campaign – and England stars Jason Roy, Joe Clarke and Liam Livingstone available in bursts.

Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more valuable cricket betting tips. These could prove the difference between a winning and losing bet. Our tips are based on generous odds from the best betting sites in India.

Opt for Inglis as Perth’s Top Batsman

Josh Inglis was a key part of the Scorcher’s BBL 2019-20 campaign and has been in solid form for Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield.

The wicketkeeper-batsman will likely be paired with an overseas star at the top of the Perth order – or he will open alongside captain Aaron Finch.

Inglis is a good pick at 4.5 with 1xBet to be the Melbourne franchise’s top batsman here. This could bring good value for an early tournament bet.

Australia cricket fans

Bet on Lalor as Melbourne’s Top Bowler

Josh Lalor has left the Brisbane Heat for the Renegades and could make an immediate positive impact on his new team.

He has plenty of experience and knows what it takes to bowl well in a format often dominated by the batsmen.

Funbet are among the new Indian betting websites we really enjoy and have Lalor nicely priced at 4.3 to be the top bowler for the Renegades.

Make Nabi Your Player of the Match

Mohammad Nabi was integral to the St Lucia Zouks’ 2020 CPL campaign, but played just one match for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL recently.

He is the face of the international stars at the Renegades and has been retained for another season. He really should slot straight into the XI and offer plenty with bat and ball.

As an all-rounder, Nabi is well placed to perform on both fronts and 22Bet have him offered at 10.0 to be the player of the match. These longer odds could pay off nicely.
