per vs mlr Match Prediction & Analysis

We are nearly at the midpoint of the league state in the Big Bash League 2020-21 and the Perth Scorchers would be taking on the Melbourne Renegades in the 25th game of the season. This game would be a very important one for both the sides as it can decide their fate for the rest of the season. Renegades lost to the Sydney Thunder in their last game while the Perth Scorchers registered their first win of the season against the Adelaide Strikers in the last game. 

Melbourne Renegades seem to have met with headwinds and have lost the last five games. They are failing to execute their plans and there seems to be a confidence issue for the side at the moment. Scorchers too have had their problems and have struggled in most of the games so far. Given their form this game is expected to be a tough contest and it would be interesting to see which of the sides comes out winning. 

Teams Preview

Perth Scorchers Preview

Ashton Turner’s side finally got over the mental block and registered its first win of the season. It was a comprehensive win for the side against the Adelaide Strikers as they crossed the finishing line comfortably with 7 wickets in hand. They had gone down against the Renegades in their first game and Turner would be looking to turn the table around in this contest. 

Jason Roy’s good knock in the last game adds to the side’s confidence and he would be looking to provide a good start with Liam Livingstone. Colin Munro and Josh Inglis would have to play well in the middle overs. They have good depth in the batting with Mitchell Marsh, Turner and Aaron Hardie in the side. All these players have good striking abilities and they would look to make it count here. 

Jason Behrendorff and Richardson are bowling well and the team would look at them to strike early here. Hardie looked good in the last game and so did Marsh and Fawad Ahmed and they would be tasked with restricting the flow of runs in the middle overs. With Andrew Tye and Turner in the bowling mix they have got the variety to trouble the Renegades in this game.  

Perth Scorchers Predicted Playing XI:

Ashton Turner (c), Josh Inglis (wk), Colin Munro, Joe Clarke, Mitchell Marsh, Cameron Bancroft, Aaron Hardie, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Fawad Ahmed

Melbourne Renegades Preview

It is becoming tough to be in the Renegades camp at the moment. Aaron Finch’s side has now suffered five consecutive losses as they lost to the Sydney Thunder by 7 runs under the DLS method in the last game that was affected by rain. They currently sit at the bottom of the points table and would need to win this one to keep their hopes alive. Finch would like his side to take heart from the fact that their only win this season came against the Scorchers and he would like to repeat that. 

Shaun Marsh and Finch look good at the moment and the onus would be on them to provide the side with a good start considering form of the other players. Rilee Rossouw and Sam Harper can’t afford any more failures as they are making it tough for the side. With Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nabi, Will Sutherland and Mackenzie Harvey, they have good depth in the batting but haven’t drawn mileage out of it yet. 

Kane Richardson has bowled well in the last few games but he will need support from Imad Wasim and Mitchell Perry with the new ball. Nabi has been expensive which is creating problems for the side and lot would be expected of him here. Peter Hatzoglou and Sutherland would have to focus on bowling tighter lines in this game for the side to break the losing spree.

Weather Conditions

It would be slightly overcast skies over Perth during the game on January 03. The ball would move around a bit with a tinge of grass cover on the surface. Batsmen would have to be watchful against the new ball. The side that bats first in this game would be happy to reach a score of 170 runs on this track.

Venue Details

The track at WACA Perth is one of the best tracks for the bowlers as there is pace and bounce on this surface. Batsmen who get their eyes in also do well on this track as the ball comes on to the bat nicely at this venue. Spinners find it tough on this track as there is hardly any assistance for them. 

Toss: To Bowl

There would be some assistance for the fast bowlers on this track as always been the case and the newly laid surface is likely to make it tough for the batsmen in the game. Setting up a score here would be a challenge and the side that wins the toss should have no hesitation in inviting the opposition to bat first here.

PER vs MLR Winning Prediction

Melbourne Renegades are struggling at the moment and the side seems to have a confidence issue with most of their players looking completely out of form. Their middle order will have to turn in around in this game for them to win. Perth Scorchers are back playing at home and bring in momentum from the last win. They have a good fast bowling attack and this would put them ahead of the Renegades in this game.
