Match 13 Prediction and Preview
Match No 13: Melbourne Renegades vs Perth Scorchers
Date and Venue: 30th Dec 2015, Melbourne Docklands
Time: 13:40 IST
On the back of strong performances by their lead players Aaron Finch, Cameron White, Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo they have managed to put some impressive performances in this edition of BBL. However, they have only managed to win one of the two games they have played as they lost against Sixers after putting a decent 172 on the board.
Having lost their first home game they would like to turn that around and give the home fans something to cheer. Given the nature of pitches in this season there can be fireworks by the home side especially with players like Gayle and Finch in the squad. They have made two changes to the 13-man squad than the previous match. Gannon and Short are in for Cameron Stevenson and Guy Walker.
Squad: Finch(c), Beaton, Bravo, Cooper, Doherty, Gayle, Gannon, Hauritz, Rimmington, Short, Tremain, Wade, White.
Their journey so far has not been different to the Renegades as they too have won one and lost one after the two games they have played. On a WACA wicket they restricted Heat to 117 which they achieved easily. However, in their opening game they lost to Adelaide defending a target of 151 runs. In the four seasons of BBL Perth have never lost to Renegades.
Scorchers will be bolstered by the return of Shaun Marsh and another change is inclusion of Matt Dixon. The 13-man squad for the game is:
Squad: Michael Klinger (c), Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Michael Carberry, Matt Dixon, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Shaun Marsh, Joel Paris, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, David Willey.
