Melbourne Renegades vs Perth Scorchers Match Pitch Report
The venue does not host a lot of matches and therefore the pitch might throw a surprise to the players as well as the fans. From the earlier matches, it is certainly not an easy pitch to bat on. Teams look to bat first in these pitches and have runs to defend when the pitch gets slower in the second innings.
What to expect:
Melbourne Renegades: The Renegades had a successful season in BBL12, finishing third at the end of the regular season. However, their new season has begun on a sour note after being bested by the Sydney Sixers by 8 runs.
Will Sutherland’s unbeaten 51 off 30 balls was the shining light in an otherwise tepid chase of 176.
Another batter you should consider is Jake Fraser-McGurk. He has had a fantastic domestic season, where he entered the record books by smashing the fastest century in List A cricket, reaching three figures in just 29 deliveries. He was the second-highest scorer of the team in the previous match, with a superb knock of 48 off 24 deliveries.
The experienced Aaron Finch, who led the way with the bat last season with 428 runs to finish in fourth on the leaderboard at an average of 38.9, will provide depth to the middle order.
Kane Richardson and Tom Rogers, who collectively secured 23 wickets last year (including seven in the crucial death overs), will spearhead the seam attack. Meanwhile, Mujeeb ur Rahman, retained after showcasing his versatility in the ODI World Cup, has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to bowl effectively at any phase of the innings without relying on pitch movement to pose a threat. He, along with Adam Zampa, can prove to be the main wicket-takers for the Renegades this year.
Melbourne Renegades Key Players
- Aaron Finch- the experienced right-handed former skipper struck three fours in his 33 runs from 31 balls in the opening game of BBL 2023 against Sydney Sixers.
- Jake Fraser-McGurk- the 21-year-old number three batter hit a century in the Sheffield Shield last month and made his highest BBL score on Friday.
- Will Sutherland- the 24-year-old right-arm fast-medium bowling all-rounder produced an excellent performance in the opening game as he dismissed Josh Philippe and James Vince before hitting 51 not out from 30 balls.
- Adam Zampa- the leg-spinner impressed during the 2023 Cricket World Cup and got off to an excellent start in this year’s BBL by picking up the wickets of Steve Smith and Tom Curran in successive balls.
Probable XI: Nic Maddinson(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Jordan Cox, Aaron Finch, Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
Melbourne Renegades Squad: Nic Maddinson(c), Joe Clarke(w), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Jordan Cox, Aaron Finch, Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Quinton de Kock, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mackenzie Harvey, Fergus O Neill, Harry Dixon, Peter Siddle
Perth Scorchers: The Scorchers reaffirmed their status as the dominant force in BBL12, securing yet another championship. The consistently impressive Perth side now boasts an incredible five titles. In the previous season’s grand final, they defeated Heat, with Cooper Connolly’s remarkable performance stealing the spotlight in the chase to overcome Brisbane’s total of 175.
In the previous season, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, and Turner stood out as key contributors among the top six run-scorers in the competition. They accumulated impressive individual totals of 460, 431, and 381 runs, respectively. Notably, all three maintained a striking rate of over 140, coupled with averages exceeding 35, and collectively achieved 12 half-centuries.
Inglis has shown how consistent he can be by surpassing the 400-run mark in three of his last four campaigns. Turner, on the other hand, displayed a penchant for delivering in crucial moments, contributing pivotal half-centuries in the BBL11 and BBL12 finals, as well as last year’s qualifier, where he rescued his team from a challenging position of 22 for 3. For Hardie, the previous season marked a breakthrough, and there is anticipation for him to replicate this success.
Perth Scorchers boast an impressive trio of seasoned pacers, utilizing the left-arm, right-arm combination of Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson for the opening spells, while Andrew Tye consistently amasses wickets during the death overs. Together, they have amassed a staggering 330+ Big Bash wickets.
However, the spin bowling unit lacks the same level of quality, relying predominantly on Ashton Agar, who is unfortunately recovering from injury at the moment. The team’s spin options are further limited to the untested Hamish McKenzie and sporadic contributions from Turner and Connolly.
Perth Scorchers Key Players
- Aaron Hardie- the 24-year-old is an attacking player and had never hit a half-century in the BBL before last season when he went past 50 on four occasions.
- Laurie Evans- the right-handed Englishman is 30 runs away from bringing up 6000 T20 runs across his career. His highest T20 score is 118 not out.
- Andrew Tye- only Sean Abbott has taken more wickets across the history of the BBL than the right-arm medium fast bowler who picked up 26 dismissals last year in this tournament.
- Jason Behrendorff- the tall left-arm pace bowler has a brilliant economy rate when bowling throughout the innings but particularly at the start. He impressed for Australia on their recent tour of India.
Probable XI: Stephen Eskinazi, Laurie Evans, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis(w), Ashton Turner(c), Cooper Connolly, Jason Behrendorff, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Hamish McKenzie, Nick Hobson
Perth Scorchers Squad: Ashton Turner(c), Jason Behrendorff, Cooper Connolly, Stephen Eskinazi, Laurie Evans, Aaron Hardie, Nick Hobson, Josh Inglis(w), Matthew Kelly, Hamish McKenzie, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman

Melbourne Renegades vs Perth Scorchers Match Prediction
After only narrowly losing to Sydney Sixers on Friday at the SCG, Melbourne Renegades will have no fears of coming up against Perth Scorchers in this game. The Renegades saw five batters make single-figure scores against the Sixers and if someone can make a big score in this match then they will be competitive. However, Perth Scorchers have a remarkable consistency in this format and often are able to find a way to win. Our prediction is for Perth Scorchers to win.
We expect the Perth Scorchers to win this match.
