Renegades in search of their maiden points!
Hobart Hurricanes will win the match!
BBL2019-20 season is getting good viewership among the Australian public and cricketing fans all over the world. Aussies have made a mark in the IPL Auctions this year fetching a lot of money.
Melbourne Renegades have lost both their matches played so far and are looking to register their name in the points table with their first points from this game. Renegades put up a good fight in both the games but failed to clinch the crucial moments.
Hobart Hurricanes, after winning their first game in good fashion, lost their previous match against Melbourne Stars by a big margin. Hurricanes batting line-up needs to bat more sensibly and score more runs to put pressure on the opposition in this match.
Hurricanes batting unit yet gain collapsed miserably and ended being bowled out for just 104 runs. Clive Rose coming in at No. 10 was top scorer with 32 runs. Caleb Jewel was the other notable batsmen with 25 runs with seven of their players ended up single-digit scores.
Hobart Hurricanes fell like ninepins from 30/0 to 64/8 in the previous match. David Miller and Ben McDermott must stand up in the middle order and take more responsibility.
Riley Meredith came up with brilliant bowling figures of 3/27 in the last match. Qais Ahmed and Clive Rose too came up with impressive economical spells with joint figures of 7-0-46-1. The rest of the bowling unit failed to make an impact.
D Arcy Short – Short fell to the trap set up by Maxwell in the previous match. He batted beautifully in the sluggish pitch in the first match to score a match-winning fifty.
Riley Meredith – Meredith has figures of 1/10 & 3/27 in the two matches played so far. He has an economy of less than 5 RPO in the middle overs. He will look to continue his good form with the ball.

Renegades failed to chase down the total by 11 runs against Perth Scorchers in a steep 196-run chase. Shaun Marsh and Beau Webster came up with fifties but was not enough to overhaul the chase. Aaron Finch and Sam Harper started the match in attacking fashion taking team scores over 50 runs inside powerplay but both fell inside the powerplay itself.
Kane Richardson bowled beautifully to take 4 wickets and was the only bowler in a good rhythm last night. Richard Gleeson and Harry Gurney went for 50 runs despite taking a wicket each. Their bowlers need to perform well as a unit and trouble the batsmen consistently.
Aaron Finch – Finch got starts of 29 & 28 in the two matches but failed to convert them into a big score. He will be itching to get a big score in this match. He scored runs at a strike rate of over 130 in both the matches.
Kane Richardson – Richardson has 4 wickets this season at an economy of 5 RPO so far. He bowled brilliantly when all the other bowlers were going at over 8 RPO in the match.

The weather looks bright and sunny with just 20% chances of rain and we can expect a full match between these two teams with no interruptions.
This is the first match in Hobart this season. The pitch will be good to bat on and batsmen may find run-scoring easy. We can expect scores in the range of 160 runs in this match.
Five of the six matches played last year here were won by the chasing team and teams will look to chase down the target set here.
Melbourne Renegades have a good batting unit with scores of over 160 this season in two matches while Hobart Hurricanes batting unit is struggling big time. Hurricanes have an excellent bowling unit when compared to Renegades and the Renegades lack the bowler with X-factor who can take wickets consistently. Home conditions and the previous records will tilt our prediction in favor of Hobart Hurricanes.
Hobart Hurricanes will win the match!
