After 55 games of BBL09 action, it comes down to this.

One playoffs spot is still open, and Brisbane Heat, after an impressive performance vs Melbourne Stars, can still grab it. They have been poor for the most part in recent games, but they are a danger side, and if they can make the playoffs on the back of momentum, anything can happen.

Melbourne Renegades stand in their way. It has been a season to forget for the champions, winning just two of 13 games. Before they happily wave this season goodbye, they can still have a big say in the makeup of the top five.

Can they beat the Heat for the second time in a week, this time on a Public Holiday Monday in Australia?

The equation for Heat: Win and qualify.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • You can’t keep a champion down for long. AB de Villiers, after a few quiet games, burst into life with a superb 71 off 37 balls vs Stars.
  • de Villiers took centre stage as Heat scored 88 in their final six overs on Saturday night.
  • Also, Aaron Finch returned to BBL in the perfect fashion. He is coming off a century vs Sixers.
  • Finch also has the most runs in Renegades-Heat matches: 353 at an average of 50.19 and SR 145.27. He has four half-centuries in seven innings vs Heat.
  • Ben Cutting has the second-most runs (247) and most wickets (10) in Renegades-Heat matches.
  • Chris Lynn is next on the Renegades-Heat run-scoring list with 233 (SR 148.41). Tom Cooper also has 233 runs head-to-head.
  • Sam Heazlett scored a half-century vs Renegades one week ago.
  • Beau Webster will be looking for a big finish to a fine season. He has made eight double-figure scores in his last 10 innings, including six scores of 25+.
  • Can Mohammad Nabi and Samit Patel keep things tight against the Heat’s big-hitters?
  • Cameron Boyce blew Heat away last week with 4/15 at the Gabba. Also, Boyce is enjoying a fine run at Marvel Stadium: 2/33, 2/30, 2/18, 2/31, 1/37 and 2/27.
  • Kane Richardson will have a key role to play in powerplay and death overs. As will Ben Laughlin for Brisbane Heat.
  • Mujeeb ur Rahman and Mitch Swepson took five wickets between them at the MCG vs Stars. Could they have a big impact on the traditionally-slow Marvel Stadium surface?

Marvel Stadium Pitch Report and Conditions

Mostly sunny weather is forecast for Melbourne on Monday, with a top of 22 degrees. The last game at Marvel Stadium saw a score of 190 from Hurricanes nearly chased down by the Renegades (190 vs 186).

Marvel Stadium pitch is typically on the slow side, but there has been an improvement in the surface this season; batsmen have been able to hit through the line a little more cleanly.

Match Prediction

Will the Heat flourish or be burdened by the pressure of a must-win game?

What’s in their favour is that they faced a must-win game across at MCG on Saturday. Led by ABD and the bowlers, they passed with flying colours. So, they have it in them to put in a big performance and quality for the playoffs.

They should do so against this Renegades side, who are short on confidence and keen for the season to end.
