Two teams who disappointed in their respective first matches go head-to-head in Perth.

But, no one disappointed more than Perth Scorchers, who were horrendous against Sydney Sixers. The wounds of last season seemed to open up, and the men in orange need to heal it quickly with victory at home.

While Melbourne Renegades weren’t as bad as the Scorchers, their fielding was amateurish against Sydney Thunder; key misfields and dropped catches cost them as they lost with two balls to spare. Can the Renegades, one of the tournament favourites, get a win?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • The main story here is Shaun Marsh returning to Perth to play his old team. He scored a superb 96* at Optus Stadium last season.
  • Aaron Finch is the current leading run-scorer for Renegades vs Scorchers (193). However, he only averages 21.
  • Dan Christian took 3/22 and 4/20 against the Scorchers last season.
  • Sam Harper started BBL09 in exciting fashion, slamming 39 (19) vs Sydney Thunder. Also, he has two 30+ scores vs Scorchers in two knocks.
  • Liam Livingstone was unlucky in the opening game, but he needs to build on recent T20 starts: 25, 39, 8, 27, 8, 10.
  • Josh Inglis threatened with 22 vs Sydney Sixers, failing to carry on. Worth keeping an eye on here? His last 12 scores across competitions: 51, 44, 42, 40, 58, 4, 2, 2, 46, 91, 1, 22.
  • Ashton Agar has the most wickets for Scorchers vs Renegades out of the current Perth squad (4).
  • Kane Richardson vs Perth Scorchers in BBL08: 1/6 and 3/23.
  • Chris Jordan took two wickets on his Scorchers debut.

Head-to-Head

  • Matches: 10, Scorchers 8, Renegades 2.
  • Melbourne Renegades have won the last two matches, bowling the Scorchers out for 79 and 103 last season.

Key to a Perth Scorchers win

Jason Behrendhorff and Andrew Tye, the Scorchers’ two most prolific wicket-takers vs the Renegades (10 each), are out with injury. So, can the inexperienced but talented bowling attack rise to the occasion at home? Chris Jordan was the only bowler to deliver some control vs the Sixers; now it’s time for the bowling unit to deliver as one.

Also, the batting left so much to be desired against the Sixers. The top order, which contains experience and talent, failed to deliver, forcing the middle-lower order to scratch away to 131. Against a disciplined Renegades attack, it is vital that the top order makes a strong start.

Key to a Melbourne Renegades win

How bad was the Renegades’ fielding effort against the Thunder? Some terrible errors eventually cost them the game, and that will be a key area of focus for Aaron Finch’s team. With the Scorchers’ batting under the spotlight, building pressure with the ball will be the order of the day.

Also, can the top order make another solid start, which can then be backed up a little better by the middle order? The Renegades scored at seven an over in the last 10 overs against the Thunder, which ultimately saw them fall just short of a winning total.

Pitch and Conditions

The temperature is forecast to cool down to the mid-20’s by the time the first ball is bowled (6:10pm local Perth time). In regards to the pitch, the recent Test between Australia and New Zealand had some nice bounce and carry in it. This was the case in BBL08, too.

Match Prediction

Two sides who need a lift after disappointing first-up performances.

Melbourne Renegades enjoyed life against Perth Scorchers last season, and that could continue this time with the Scorchers looking bereft of confidence. Renegades to win.
