Christmas Eve afternoon takes a purple turn in Hobart.

Hobart Hurricanes, beaten so convincingly in Moe, welcome back the experience of George Bailey and James Faulkner for this clash. It is a welcome addition, given how badly they fell away once D’Arcy Short was dismissed last time out.

They play a Melbourne Renegades side who have been well under-par so far in BBL09. The current champions have lost two straight to begin the season, and while that is no need for panic, a win would be much-welcomed in Australia’s south.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Aaron Finch is the leading run-scorer in Hurricanes-Renegades matches: 372 at an average of 46.50.
  • Ben McDermott (237 at 79.00), George Bailey (185 at 30.83) and Tom Cooper (144 at 28.80) are next.
  • Shaun Marsh so far in BBL09: 42 and 55. Beau Webster (67 off 37) was superb in the last match.
  • Jake Fraser-McGurk is in the Renegades squad for this match. If picked, this 17-year old is one to watch. Marcus Harris is back in the squad, and scored 50 on this ground in BBL 2017.
  • D’Arcy Short had what seemed a rare BBL failure last game (out for 9). It will still take a brave person to back against him back at home.
  • Caleb Jewell began so encouragingly vs Melbourne Stars last match: one to watch?
  • Riley Meredith (four wickets) has been superb so far in BBL09.
  • Kane Richardson (four wickets) has also made a strong start to BBL09. He also has the most wickets in Hurricanes-Renegades matches with six.
  • Qais Ahmed (five wickets in BBL09) took 2/34 and 3/33 at Hobart in last season’s BBL.

Possible Playing 11

George Bailey and James Faulkner return for this clash. The experience of Bailey in particular was significantly missed in Moe, with the middle-lower collapse making it paramount that the top order performs.

Hobart Hurricanes: 1. D’Arcy Short, 2. Caleb Jewell, 3. Ben McDermott (c & wk), 4. George Bailey, 5. David Miller, 6. Simon Milenko, 7. James Faulkner, 8. Nathan Ellis, 9. Clive Rose, 10. Qais Ahmed, 11. Riley Meredith

BBL09 Match 11: HH vs MR Dream11 – D’Arcy Short will be key.

Marcus Harris and Jake Fraser-McGurk are in for the Melbourne Renegades. Whether either play remains to be seen. Daniel Christian has had a slow start to BBL09 – the Renegades need him to step up. So too Harry Gurney, who was poor last time out vs Scorchers.

Melbourne Renegades: 1. Aaron Finch (c), 2. Sam Harper (wk), 3. Shaun Marsh, 4. Tom Cooper, 5. Beau Webster, 6. Daniel Christian, 7. Jack Wildermuth, 8. Cameron Boyce, 9. Kane Richardson, 10. Richard Gleeson, 11. Harry Gurney
