In the last game against the Melbourne Stars, Will Sutherland took over as captain instead of Nic Maddinson. He was unable to alter his team’s fate, though, as they lost by eight wickets. Sutherland and his team would like to make up for their pride in this game as they are not in the running for a spot in the following round.
Quinton de Kock and Joe Clarke will be looked upon by the team to get off to a strong start in this game because they have been unreliable openers. Shaun Marsh and Mackenzie Harvey are in the middle order, therefore Jake Fraser-McGurk needs to perform well there. Given the poor performance of the top tier, Jonathan Wells and Will Sutherland are required to provide the goods in the lower middle order.
Given their recent struggles, the team will need a strong start from Tom Rogers and Peter Siddle. For the side, early wickets will be vital. The side has to win, and seasoned bowlers Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson need to perform well. In the supporting roles, Jonathan Wells and Will Sutherland need to perform well.

In the previous game, Nathan Ellis’ team beat the Sydney Thunder by a score of seven wickets. Though the team has only won two of their five games, they have not been consistent. The top order isn’t performing up to par, which is a problem for the hitting lineup. The Hurricanes captain wants to take advantage of this chance to go up the points table since the Renegades have also suffered.
Caleb Jewell and Matthew Wade need to have a strong opening wicket stand at the top of the order. The side will be hoping for strong performances from Macalister Wright, Ben McDermott, and Corey Anderson, since the middle order performed well in the previous game. They have a depth of batsmen, and Tim David, Nikhil Chaudhary, and Chris Jordan should provide them with runs.
With the new ball, Riley Meredith and Nathan Ellis will try to perform well and put the Renegades hitters, who have been struggling, through some hardship. The team will be looking to Nikhil Chaudhary and Chris Jordan, who have both bowled well in the middle overs, to repeat their success. Tim David and Patrick Dooley both need to perform well in the supporting roles.
