Hello and welcome to our HEA vs REN Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Renegades will play against each other in the 39th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.
The Heat have performed decently in the last few matches and have won 4 out of 9 games and are currently at the 6th position on the points table with 16 points. In the previous game, they had to face disappointment as they lost the match by three wickets.
The team’s batting department that was getting back in form once again failed to perform up to the mark. Max Bryant has been performing decently so far this season, and skipper Chris Lynn has been opening in the innings and has been consistently scoring in every match.
Joe Denly and Joe Burns have been batting well in the middle-order, but both got out early in the last match. Peirson has put up some good performances this season, and Lewis Gregory has also contributed with both bat and ball whenever required, but in the last match, he went wicketless.
The bowling department has been performing consistently in every match. Mark Steketee and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have been the team’s consistent wicket-takers so far in this season. Jack Wildermuth and Lewis Gregory managed to pick up wickets at a vital time. James Bazley bowled well picking up two wickets in the last match.
Brisbane Heat needs to win most of their remaining matches to ensure a place in the playoffs.
The Melbourne Renegades are having an adamant time this season also as they have won only two out of nine matches and are currently at the bottom of the points table with a total of 9 points. They finally managed to win their last game by 6 wickets after seven consecutive losses.
Skipper Aaron Finch has been batting decently but has not been able to play a big inning so far in this season. Opening batsman Shaun Marsh has put up some decent performances but did not play the last two matches due to injury. The new opener Mackenzie has played a couple of decent innings.
Sam Harper has performed well in some of the matches but has not been able to perform consistently. Mohammad Nabi struggled to score runs in this season batted brilliantly in the last game scoring 71* runs along with Fraser-McGurk’s 29* runs and helped the team win the game.
The bowlers did a decent job in the last match as they managed to pick up wickets and not concede many runs in the previous game. Only Kane Richardson has been picking up wickets consistently. In the last game, Peter Hatzoglou and Jack Prestwidge bowled well in the last match picking up three wickets and 2 wickets.
Renegades have managed to win a match, and they need to perform like this in every game so that they can keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs.
