REN vs SCO Dream11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips Possible Playing XI Pitch Report: BBL 2023/24 Match 4 | MR vs PS Dream11 Prediction Today | Geelong Pitch Report

Melbourne Renegades showed promising signs in their tournament opener against Sydney Sixers on Friday. But, in a shorter BBL season, there is less room for error, and they will be after their first win today.

It certainly doesn’t get any easier, though. Perth Scorchers, the current back-to-back champions, are in town. While the men in orange are missing a number of stars due to various factors, their depth in talent will be on show once again as they are set to field a quality lineup. However, they will have to deal with Quinton de Kock who is coming off a superb World Cup campaign for South Africa, as well as other talented players in the Renegades lineup including Jake Fraser-McGurk and Will Sutherland.

Scorchers typically dominate this encounter. They have won 15 of the 18 meetings between the sides. But, there is a bit of a different feel about the Renegades this season and their confidence will grow significantly if they can pick up a big scalp here.

  • Date: Sunday 10th December, 2023.

BBL 2023/24 Match 4: REN vs SCO Dream11 Prediction – Fantasy Cricket Tips

Melbourne Renegades:

  • Quinton de Kock smashed 594 runs in the recent World Cup at an average of 59.40 and strike rate of 107.02. He is coming off a quiet Abu Dhabi T10 campaign (33 runs in last six innings), but the T20 format gives him a bit more time.
  • Jake Fraser-McGurk looked in glorious touch two days ago against Sixers (48 off 24 balls). His strokeplay on the onside is particularly strong. Earlier this season, he smashed the fastest-ever List A century (29 balls).
  • Will Sutherland’s talent was on display in the Sixers match. He took 2/21 and struck 51*. Last season, Sutherland hit 210 runs at a strike rate of 150, so he is capable of big contributions with bat and ball.
  • Renegades could look to introduce Kane Richardson early against Josh Inglis. Richardson has dismissed Inglis three times in 31 balls in T20s (41 runs).
  • Overall, Richardson has an impressive 18 wickets in 10 matches for Renegades against Scorchers (avg. 13.94, econ. 6.58).
  • Adam Zampa has 12 wickets in as many matches vs. Scorchers. Expect the legspinner to find some grip in the typically slower Geelong track.

Perth Scorchers:

  • Aaron Hardie is primed for a big season. He smashed the most runs in last year’s BBL (460) at an average of 41.81 and strike rate of 141.10. He can also contribute with a few overs.
  • Josh Inglis is also set for a big campaign. He recently hammered the equal-fastest T20I century by an Australian in the India series.
  • Against Renegades, Inglis has scored 231 runs at an average of 28.88 and strike rate of 142.59.
  • Jhye Richardson came back to Sheffield Shield cricket with a bang recently taking 4/36 for Western Australia. Overall against Renegades, Richardson has taken eight wickets at a strike rate of 20.63.
  • Richardson has dismissed Nic Maddinson once in seven balls (8 runs). He has also dismissed Aaron Finch twice in 24 balls (24 runs).
  • Jason Behrendhorff is coming off a brilliant T20I series in India. He took six wickets in four matches at an average of 17.83 and economy of 6.68. Also, Behrendhorff has taken 15 wickets in 12 matches against Renegades at an average of 18.87 and economy of 6.43.
  • Behrendhorff has dismissed Nic Maddinson once in 23 balls and has conceded just 27. He has also dismissed Jake Fraser-McGurk once in two deliveries in the BBL.
  • Andrew Tye is one of the most consistent BBL performers. He took 26 wickets last season (SR 14.30) and has 15 scalps in 13 matches vs Renegades (SR 18.53).

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 18, Renegades 3, Scorchers 15.
