Melbourne Renegades vs Brisbane Heat Predictions

Chris Lynn is backed to score over 23.5 runs for the seventh time in eight matches while Marnus Labuchagne is tipped to be the Heat's top scorer. With the playoffs in sight I am looking at the Brisbane Heat to win this crucial match.

On the Melbourne Renegades side, Sam Harper has moved up the order and scored runs in his last two innings. He offers value to be their top run scorer.

  • Melbourne Renegades have lost 9 of their last 12 Big Bash matches.
  • Melbourne Renegades’ Sam Harper has scored 63 & 39 runs in his last 2 matches. 
  • Brisbane Heat’s Marnus Labuschagne top scored in his last match.
  • Brisbane Heat’s Chris Lynn has scored 27+ runs in 6 of his last 7 matches.

Head to Head

The Melbourne Renegades lead 3-2 over their last five matches against the Brisbane Heat. When they met earlier this season the Heat won by five wickets in Canberra.

Melbourne Renegades Form

The Melbourne Renegades are last on the Big Bash table with three wins from their 12 matches. With only a couple matches remaining, they will be looking to go out on a high.

The Renegades managed to win the Melbourne derby in their last match against the Melbourne Stars. The biggest issue for the Renegades this season has however been putting a run of wins together.

Batting first the Melbourne Stars managed 158 runs as Zak Evans took 2-23 in three overs. In response the Renegades stuttered but eventually got over the line thanks to Mackenzie Harvey’s 47 runs. That match was won by five wickets with two balls to spare.

Renegades Team News

The Melbourne Renegades will hope that the team that got them the win in the last match can do the trick again. They don’t have any returning internationals.

Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh have been misfiring at the top of the order over the most recent matches. There really isn’t much the Renegades can change with Rilee Rossouw now unavailable for selection.

Brisbane Heat Form

The Brisbane Heat are in the hunt for the playoffs but currently find themselves seventh, two points off fifth place. This is largely down to their inconsistent form over the last few matches.

The Heat’s last two matches have seen them being bowled out for 115 runs, far below a par T20 score. The batsmen will need to find that form that got them into the playoff spots earlier this season.

Last time out, the Heat suffered a humiliating 82-run defeat to the Adelaide Strikers in Adelaide. The Strikers totaled 197 batting first as the Heat bowlers struggled to contain Alex Carey.

The response from the Heat was poor. Marnus Labuschagne returned from international duty to score 28 runs, but that turned out to be the top score.

Heat Team News

Marnus Labuschagne returned to the Brisbane Heat for the last match and will definitely keep his spot. He adds plenty of quality to the Heat lineup, something they could really do with in the closing stages.

Morne Morkel went down injured after bowling just one over in the last match. He is unlikely to feature in this match.
