MLR vs BH Match & Analysis

It has taken twelve matches a side for the line of separation to emerge on the points table in Big Bash League 2020. The top three sides look fairly settled to qualify for the playoffs while the teams placed in the bottom half are all basically fighting for the fourth spot on the ladder.

Melbourne Renegades are already out of contention and will be looking to end their run on a happy note. On the contrary, Brisbane heat - the Renegades' opponents in the upcoming contest would be desperately searching for a win to rise up the ladder. This match, in all likelihood, will govern the Heat's future in the tournament. With a possible playoff spot at stake, we expect Brisbane Heat to come out all guns blazing. The match between the two sides is to be played at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne, on Saturday, 23rd January 2021.

MLR vs BH Team Previews

Melbourne Renegades

Melbourne Renegades reiterated their importance in the tournament with a win over Melbourne Stars in the recently concluded encounter. Even though Renegades are still pretty much out of contention of the race to the playoffs, they can still play a massive role in this tournament. They spoiled Star's chances to easily qualify for the playoffs in the last match and would want to do that against Brisbane Heat as well.

The Renegades win in the previous match underlined by how minuscule margins they were losing their previous matches. Chasing a total of 158, it took only one good innings down the order - something that Renegades had been searching for since the beginning of the season. Mackenzie Harvey smashed match-winning 47 to take his side home in the last over of the match. Earlier in the day, the Renegades' bowlers did a terrific job to keep Stars to a manageable total of 157.

On paper, Melbourne Renegades have always had a decent lineup, but lack of execution has cost them. Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh both haven't really contributed as much for the team as the fans and the management would have wanted. Finch, in particular, hasn't scored a fifty, yet in the tournament.

All in all, Melbourne Renegades would have found confidence with a thunderous win over Melbourne Stars. Their younger players are taking on the additional responsibility and handling it to perfection. It's high time that their experienced players show their class and what they are capable of. If that happens, Brisbane Heat are likely to have a match as tough as the Stars had.

Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Sam Harper, Jake Fraser McGurk, Jack Prestwidge, Mackenzie Harvey, BJ Webster, SI Wasim, Josh Lalor, Zak Evans, Peter Hatzoglou.

Brisbane Heat

Just a couple of matches ago, Brisbane Heat were looking all set to qualify for the playoffs. However, a couple of back to back losses has really hurt their chances. They are not stationed on the seventh position on the points table and need to win both of their remaining fixtures. Given that they do not have a net run-rate to be proud of, Brisbane Heat will be under tremendous pressure to not only register a win here but also do so with a margin as big as possible.

In the last two matches, it's the Heat's batting that hasn't fired for them. Yes, their bowlers could not contain the opponents to a sub-par or even a par score, their batsmen failed to even put up a fight. In the last two matches, Brisbane Heat have scored a total of 230 runs in 40 overs. In ideal scenarios, the presence of Marnus Labuschagne should strengthen the top-order of any team. However, Brisbane Heat have not really managed to get off the blocks quickly in the last to matches. The fact that Chris Lynn hasn't fired hasn't helped their cause either.

Brisbane Heat bat deep with a batsman as good as Jimmy Peirson coming in to bat at number seven. However, with almost no player having scored consistently in the tournament, the confidence isn't just there on their batting lineup.

The lack of confidence was apparent in the bowling as well as Brisbane Heat used seven bowlers in their match against the Strikers with six of them going for over nine runs an over. In the last two matches, Brisbane Heat have had their vulnerabilities exploited to their fullest. They'd need to bounce back strong in both departments of the game and if they can do that, they'll be back in the business yet again.

Brisbane Heat Playing 11

Max Bryant, Chris Lynn, Marnus Labuschagne, Joe Denly, Joe Burns, Jimmy Peirson, Lewis Gregory, Mark Steketee, Mitchell Swepson, Xavier Bartlett, Ben Laughlin.

MLR vs BH Betting Tips

While the Renegades are already out of contention, they'll be as desperate to win the match as Brisbane Heat. Brisbane Heat are still in contention for the playoffs, but it will all be over if they are not able to register a win here. Brisbane Heat's over-reliance on their top-order is well and truly apparent. With Lynn not firing consistently, they lack someone who can tonk the ball long and hard. Melbourne Renegades, too, have had their share of weaknesses, but are a better-balanced team between the two, at least on paper. They are coming off a massive win in their previous match and are, therefore, our pick to emerge as winners in the upcoming encounter.
