REN vs HEA Dream11 Prediction | Top Picks | 49th Match, BBL 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our REN vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat will play against each other in the 49th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne.

Melbourne Renegades:

The Melbourne Renegades are having hard luck this season as they have won only three out of twelve matches and are currently at the bottom of the points table with 13 points. They performed well in the last game and won by five wickets.

Skipper Aaron Finch has looked completely out of form this season and scored only ten runs in the last match. Opening batsman Shaun Marsh has put up some decent performances so far in this season but got out for only one run. At No.3 Sam Harper has been batting decently and has played a couple of good innings.

Mackenzie has been batting decently, and scoring runs in whichever position he was asked to bat, and in the last match, he missed his half-century by just three runs. Fraser-McGurk batted well in some of the games this season. Webster batted brilliantly in the previous game, scoring some quick runs and took his team over the victory line.

The bowlers have been performing decently so far this season. Kane Richardson and Peter Hatzoglou have been the consistent wicket-takers so far in this season. Imad Wasim has appeared to be handling the spin department well. Zak Evans managed to pick up two wickets in the last match.

Renegades are officially out of the race for playoffs this season, and they would like to play the remaining two matches for their pride and win both of them.

Brisbane Heat:

The Heat is struggling for the last few matches and has won 5 out of 12 games, and are currently at the 7th position on the points table with 21 points. They had to face disappointment in the previous game as they lost their last match by 82 runs.

The team’s batting department has not been up to the mark in the last two games. The new opener Labuschagne batted decently in the first match of this season scoring 28 runs. Skipper Chris Lynn has been opening the innings, scoring runs consistently in every game, and has already scored three fifties in the seven matches he has played this season. He got out early in the last game.

Joe Denly and Joe Burns have been batting well in the middle-order, providing stability to the innings but in the last two matches, Burns couldn’t score much. Max Bryant has changed his batting order and is now batting in the lower middle-order and making a decent performance in the last match. 

Peirson has put up some good performances this season but appeared to be struggling in the last few matches, and Lewis Gregory has also contributed with both bat and ball whenever required for the team.

The bowling department has performed consistently in every match but looked out of the rhythm in the last two games. Mark Steketee has been the team’s consistent wicket-taker so far in this season. Jack Wildermuth and Bartlett have also been picking up wickets at crucial times. Labuschagne managed to pick up 2 wickets in the last match.

As the league stage is coming to an end, Brisbane Heat needs to keep winning matches to be alive in the race for the playoffs.
