Melbourne Renegades have had a dream start to this tournament, winning both of their games. Despite the fact that the tournament is still in its early stages, Melbourne will want to go unbeaten for as long as possible and maintain that consistency in each and every game.
The bowling department had a good day in the previous game, limiting the Sydney Thunders to 176 runs and picking up 6 wickets. They picked wickets at regular intervals which didn’t allow the batting team to consolidate. Akeal Hosein and Kane Richardson were outstanding, each taking one wicket but being extremely economical.
Not particularly difficult, but the chase became increasingly difficult near the end. They got off to a bad start, losing a wicket in the first over. The top order steadied the ship, for the middle order to then take over. Aaron Finch delivered a match-winning performance, scoring 70 off 43 balls to ensure Melbourne Renegades’ victory.

In spite of it being their first game, Brisbane Heat would have wanted to start off their campaign with a win. They will want to take it in stride and not dwell on it for too long, as the games will come quickly and furiously. Given it is the same opposition, they will ensure that they do not make the same mistakes as they did in the previous game.
The Bowling department was mighty impressive. They not only restricted their opponents, but also took wickets at critical intervals, limiting the flow of runs. Matthew Kuhnemann was the show’s star, taking three wickets for 32 runs. He was well supported by James Bazley, who bowled four overs for 19 runs and two wickets.
The batting department, on the other hand, let the team down by failing to chase down the score of 167. They managed to score 144 runs losing 6 wickets just. Losing wickets throughout the innings meant, they didn’t have any momentum while chasing the target. Jimmy Peirson tried until the end, scoring 43 points on 30 balls, but it wasn’t to be.
