The Melbourne Renegades will host the Perth Scorchers in the thirteenth match of the Big Bash League at the Melbourne Docklands Stadium on Wednesday, Dec. 30, starting 7.10 PM local time.
The Renegades’ side has managed to secure one win and lose one in their opening two games of the Big Bash League tournament. They have been quite erratic with their performance this year as they clinched the only victory so far against a winless Brisbane Heat side and lost to the under-performing Sixers.
As per the Betting Betfair post, the Renegades now stand at the bottom of the Big Bash League table. But still it is very early to jump to any conclusion right now as the tournament will unfold in the future giving ample opportunities to gain momentum.
The Perth Scorchers have been instrumental in scripting a comeback in the tournament after losing their first game and then crushing the Heat side on the Boxing day, notes ESPN Cricinfo. The Renegades will bank on their home advantage to gain an upper hand over the Scorchers.
When it comes to the Melbourne Docklands Stadium pitch, the usual performances seem to be affected by the drop in pitches. It is quite unlike the Melbourne Cricket Ground pitch in Melbourne.
