Match Details

REN vs SCO, 4th Match, BBL 2020.

Bellerive Oval, Hobart.

1:45 PM, 12th December 2020.

Pitch Conditions

Average 1st innings score: 183

Average 2nd innings score: 170

The pitch was good for batting in the first game and would be the same for this game. The bowlers were successful in getting an early breakthrough in the game but still were expensive the middle overs and could not finish it off well. Spinners proved to be expensive in the middle overs, and the team batting will look to take on the spinners by using the 2 overs powerplay in the middle overs.

The team winning the toss will look to bat first, seeing the result of the last match played on the ground.
