PER vs MLR Match & Analysis

It took almost half of the tournament for the Scorchers to get their first win of the tournament. However, they'd be pretty happy that their win came before being completely knocked out of the tournament. They are still a long way off the team right above them at the points table, but another couple of wins should put Perth Scorchers in a reasonable position.

The Scorchers are now faced to face Melbourne Renegades in what is arguably a must-win encounter for both sides. Just like the Scorchers, the Renegades have found going a little tough in the competition so far and are desperately looking to get some important points under their belt. It always gets exciting when two teams battle hard to get important points and we expect nothing different this time around as well. The match is set to be played at WACA Cricket Ground, Perth, on 3rd December 2020.

PER vs MLR Team Previews

Perth Scorchers

Coming into the tournament, Perth Scorchers had one of the better-balanced sides. However, they were so poor with their execution that it took them five matches to register their first win in Big Bash League 2020. However, now that they have won, they'll be looking to get a string of wins against their name so as to rise up the ladder. Currently, they are placed at the sixth spot with six points and a net run-rate of -1.135 to their name.

While the bowling has done pretty well for the Scorchers up until now in the tournament, their batting has been far from where they would have wanted it to be. In the last match as well, it were the Scorchers' bowlers that won them the match, albeit their batsmen did well.

Chasing a total of 147, the Scorchers scripted their run in a ruthless fashion as Jason Roy, Josh Inglis, and Mitchell Marsh looked in a rampaging mood to overhaul the total. Jason Roy was slow to begin with, scoring 27 of his first 28 deliveries, but then finished his innings in a style he is well known for.

With the ball, it was the sharp bowling spell of Jhye Richardson, who got Scorchers the win. He was ably assisted by the other bowlers as Scorchers restricted Strikers to just 146 before their batsmen did the job of chasing the total down. Overall, the batsmen have finally joined the party for the Scorchers and with bowlers already doing well, beating Scorchers could be a difficult task.

Melbourne Renegades

It's been rather surprising to see Melbourne Renegades doing so poorly in the tournament. They had a disastrous campaign last year and are languishing in a similar position this year as well. In six matches played, the Renegades have just one win to their name. Their net run-rate of -2.543 is evidence of how poor they have been. Remarkably, their first win came in the earlier part of the tournament and they have been on a losing streak since then.

Their last match pretty much summed up their tournament on the whole. It was a match that was affected by rain and had the DLS method come into the picture, but Renegades looked in control only for a limited amount of time. With the bat, it was only because of Shaun Marsh and Mohammad Nabi, that Renegades were able to score a challenging total. However, their bowlers failed to do anything of substance as all of their bowlers proved to be expensive.

On paper, the Renegades have a terrific team - perhaps one of the best in the tournament. They have extensive experience available in Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, and Mohammad Nabi. Additionally, they have the likes of Kane Richardson, Imad Wasim, and Riley Rossouw as well. There's no dearth of experience and talent at Renegades and if they can get their execution correct, getting past them would take a colossal effort.

PER vs MLR Betting Tips

Given that this is a match between two sides that are desperate to put some points on the board, the stakes involved cannot be overstated. Both sides have talented players available and are expected to come hard at each other. While the Scorchers did well in their last match and are playing at their home ground, the Renegades have a better-balanced unit available at their disposal. For that reason, we expect the Renegades to come out on top in this all-important match.
