Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades Match Pitch Report
The pitch of Bellerive Oval Hobart Cricket Ground is considered favorable for batsmen. At the beginning of the match, fast bowlers get some swing on this ground, due to which they can take wickets in the initial overs. On this ground, the ball of fast bowlers comes fast due to which Due to this, batsmen may face difficulty in playing the game in the beginning.
What to expect:
Hobart Hurricanes: Their opening game against Sydney Strikers was disappointing, to say the least. The middle-order batters couldn’t capitalize on the terrific start their openers got them off to, and let the opposition seize the initiative. A flurry of wickets followed and the scoring rate dipped drastically, which meant their innings went nowhere. And they finished the innings with a below-par 135.
Their top order and the middle order had a shocker of a game against Perth Scorchers, but two of their lower-order batsmen saw off the bowling threat which allowed Chris Jordan to cut loose and help himself to a 20-ball 59. To opt to bat only to score 47/5 in 8 overs is unacceptable, but thanks to their lower order digging deep, they finished with 172 runs- definitely above par in those conditions. The momentum swung in favor of Hurricanes but not for long as their bowlers traveled all over the park, courtesy of a blistering 150+ partnership for the second wicket between Aaron Hardie and Zak Crawley in almost 14 overs.
Team Hobart has a lot of work to do with both bat and ball. They need runs from the bats of Ben McDermott, Tim David, and Corey Anderson in particular, and their under-performing bowling unit has to find a way to make regular breakthroughs to stop the opposition from scoring freely.
Hobart Hurricanes Key Players
- Ben McDermott – When the right-hander walks to the crease in this game it will be for his 150th T20 innings. So far, he has hit over 3900 runs in this format.
- Tim David – The Australia international has a reputation as one of the best ‘finishers’ in T20 cricket. So far he has made a combined 13 runs in this BBL but a big score is never far away.
- Chris Jordan – The England international took Hobart Hurricanes’ only wicket and top-scored for them with the bat in the last game. He is a big competitor and also an excellent fielder.
- Nathan Ellis – The skipper leaked runs at a rate of 11.05 per over in the last game but he should enjoy the bowler-friendly conditions in Hobart for this match.
Probable XI: Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott(w), Sam Hain, Tim David, Corey Anderson, Nikhil Chaudhary, Mitchell Owen, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Billy Stanlake
Hobart Hurricanes Squad: Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott(w), Sam Hain, Tim David, Corey Anderson, Nikhil Chaudhary, Mitchell Owen, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Billy Stanlake, Iain Carlisle, Liam Guthrie, Peter Hatzoglou, Sam Heazlett, Riley Meredith, Macalister Wright, Matthew Wade
Melbourne Renegades: Melbourne Renegades fell short in the last over against Sydney Sixers in their season opener. They were looking all set to make some inroads into Perth Scorchers’ batting line-up at Geelong in their second match, but the umpires decided to call off play due to a dangerous pitch after it started playing a few tricks.
Their current squad looks much stronger, with explosive batters Quinton De Kock, Jordan Cox, and Jake Fraser-McGurk in the ranks and fresh recruits Adam Zampa and Mujeeb Ur Rahman bolstering the bowling attack. They need to get their campaign underway with a win as another defeat would have them clasping at the straws. They wouldn’t want to put themselves in a position where they find themselves having to do too much with just a handful of matches remaining to be able to progress through to the playoffs.
Agreed, it is not the start of the campaign they were hoping for. However, they can heave a big sigh of relief now that their draw can only get easier from here, after having faced heavyweight teams like Sixers, Scorchers, and Heat early on.
Melbourne Renegades Key Players
- Quinton de Kock – The South African left-handed keeper-batter has scored six hundred and over 9000 runs across his T20 career.
- Jake Fraser-McGurk – Although his side has started the campaign without a victory, the 21-year-old has already posted scores of 48 and 55.
- Adam Zampa – The right-arm spinner dismissed Sam Billings in the last game and he is a very consistent performer in T20 cricket with 286 wickets in total.
- Kane Richardson – The right-arm medium-fast bowler took a wicket with his first ball of the game against Brisbane Heat. He will certainly enjoy the conditions in Hobart.
Probable XI: Quinton de Kock(w), Joe Clarke, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Nic Maddinson(c), Aaron Finch, Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Melbourne Renegades Squad: Quinton de Kock(w), Joe Clarke, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Nic Maddinson(c), Aaron Finch, Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mackenzie Harvey, Fergus O Neill, Peter Siddle

Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
We are backing Chris Jordan, Billy Stanlake, and Nathan Ellis with the ball for Hobart Hurricanes. Stanlake will get movement from the pitch at the Bellerive Oval and he will be looking to add to his tally of 81 T20 wickets. White ball specialist Jordan picked up a wicket with his second ball against Perth Scorchers and he still has one of the best yorkers in short format cricket.
With the ball, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Kane Richardson, and Adam Zampa are our choices for the Melbourne Renegades. Although the conditions in Hobart will be a lot colder than what Mujeeb is used to, he comes into this match in strong form after taking 2/27 against Brisbane Heat. Richardson has a strike rate of 16.6 in T20s with best figures of 4/22 and an average of 22.69.
