Scorchers vs Renegades Tips, Preview & Prediction
The Perth Scorchers host the Melbourne Renegades at Optus Stadium on Sunday. Both teams have struggled so far in the competition with the Scorchers finally recording a win in their latest match.
Played on New Year’s Eve, the Scorchers were seven-wicket victors over the Adelaide Strikers who could only manage 9/146 off their allotted 20 overs. Alex Carey was the only respectable batsman for the Strikers as he made 82 runs from 59 balls. Jhye Richardson was the pick of the bowlers for the Scorchers with 3/19 while Aaron Hardie claimed 2/21.
Perth chased the score down with 14 balls left. Jason Roy top scored with 49 while Josh Inglis and Mitchell Marsh were both unbeaten on 44 and 38 respectively.
The Renegades have had a horror season once again sitting last on the table with one win and five-straight losses. Their only win came against the Scorchers at the start of the season.
In a rain affected match, the Renegades posted 6/166 off 17 overs with Shaun Marsh making 87 from 48 deliveries. The Thunder chased down their target losing only two wickets to finish 2/117 off 12 overs.
Perth and Melbourne played on December 12 when the Renegades won by seven wickets with 21 balls remaining.
The Scorchers are dominant favourites for this match but I cannot fully trust them. Despite the fact that the Renegades have lost five in a row, they showed a little more competitiveness in their last two matches and they may be able to cause an upset to make it a clean sweep over the Scorchers this season.
Shaun Marsh has been solid for the Renegades this season with three half centuries and the veteran looks a good chance to score 24 or more runs against the Scorchers. He made 62 in their last encounter.
Jhye Richardson has picked up nine wickets from five innings and looks the leading candidate to capture the most wickets for the Scorchers.
