The shimmer of BBL 2019-20 continues as Melbourne Renegades and Hobart Hurricanes battle it out in Match 47 of the tournament. Melbourne Renegades have failed to deliver consistent performances so far in the season. Despite being equipped with a robust squad, Renegades have registered only two wins so far in the tournament and are currently sitting at the bottom of the points table.
However, their previous match against Brisbane Heat served as a breath of fresh air for the Dan Christian-led side. After amassing 164 runs on the scoreboard, Renegades’ bowling force showcased a robust performance to decimate Heat’s batting line-up at a meagre total of 120. Renegades will be eager to replicate their performance against Hobart Hurricanes.
It has also been a similar kind of journey for Hobart Hurricanes. In eleven matches so far, Hurricanes have amassed only three wins and are poised second-last in the points table. In their previous match against Adelaide Strikers, Hurricanes had to suffer a 10-run defeat after failing to hunt down the target of 185 runs.
The biggest positive for the Matthew Wade-led side was David Miller‘s scintillating 90-run knock. The South African stole the limelight by smashing 90 runs off just 48 balls including 8 fours and 5 sixes. Scott Boland, who scalped two wickets in his spell, was the pick of Hurricanes’ bowlers.
Pitch and Conditions
In the previous encounter at Docklands, both the teams ticked the 160-run mark on the scoreboard. A similar kind of a surface is expected to be dished out for this game. Moreover, both teams are equipped with many hard-hitters of the ball. There is a slim chance of showers to intervene in the match with the temperature hovering around 22 degrees Celcius along with moderate levels of humidity, according to AccuWeather.
Melbourne Renegades are equipped with many top-order batsmen in their arsenal who can provide them with a flying start. Shaun Marsh, Sam Harper and Beau Webster have delivered impressive performances this season. Cameron Boyce, who wreaked havoc on Brisbane Heat batsmen in his previous match, will be hoping to deliver another sublime performance. Boyce completely turned the tables in favour of his side by scalping four wickets in his spell while conceding only 15 runs.
Predicted XI: Shaun Marsh, Beau Webster, Daniel Christian (c), Sam Harper (wk) Marcus Harris, Cameron Boyce, Will Sutherland, Jack Wildermuth, Andrew Fekete, Samit Patel, Mohammad Nabi

Boland has 10 scalps to his name in the last ten matches.
