Third-placed Melbourne Renegades will be hosting Brisbane Heat in the Knockout of the Big Bash League at Docklands Stadium, on January 29. Brisbane Heat put on a brilliant performance while coming into the knockouts as Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne batted brilliantly to post 200-plus runs on board. Heat clinched that game with 8-runs due to DLS, but they will arguably be favourites when they will be against Melbourne Renegades.
Melbourne Renegades is most likely to win the toss as they have been lucky twice in the last four attempts. While Brisbane Heat didn’t have that kind of luck recently.
Aaron Finch is leading Melbourne Renegades in style as he is currently the leading run-getter for the team. Renegades have played brilliant cricket in recent times, but Brisbane Heat might sneak away with the win thanks to a better overall team. Khwaja, Marnus Labuschagne and Matt Renshaw were critical in the previous game and are likely to step up one more time as the Heat look towards the summit clash.
Predicted powerplay score and average first-inning total:
The wicket at Docklands Stadium is widely popular for its sporting nature and we must expect a highly competitive game on Sunday evening. According to our prediction, 42-52 will be a powerplay score while the average first-inning total will be around 179-189.
