Melbourne Renegades will face the Perth Scorchers in match 17 of the Australian T20 League 2021-22. The contest is set to be staged at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. While the Renegades had started off their campaign with a win, they have since then succumbed to two straight defeats. On the other hand, Perth Scorchers have won all their four matches in the tournament so far and seem to be in the middle of a fantastic run.
While the Renegades faced defeat against Brisbane Heat in their last game, Scorchers were on the opposite side of the spectrum winning convincingly against Hobart Hurricanes to remain the only unbeaten team in the tournament.
Sam Harper with gloves behind the stumps and an opportunity at the top of the order walks into the Fantasy XI. Seeing the current form, it is only logical to pick as many in-form members of a team that has not lost a game in the competition and so the balance could be either 6-5 or 7-4 in favour of the Scorchers. Kurtis Patterson, Colin Munro, Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Agar and Andrew Tye are some Scorcher players who simply cannot be ignored in the context of the number of points they have been able to fetch for those who picked them in the matches so far. Having said that, one must be careful with the Renegades players who are picked. Mackenzie Harvey has looked promising along with Zahir Khan and Kane Richardson. Mohammad Nabi is also an experienced campaigner who can be picked.
