Betting Tips

  • Brisbane Heat have a very strong bowling line up that we think will create a lot of trouble for the Renegades batsmen.
  • Melbourne Renegades have a very vulnerable batting line up and most of their players are out of form.
  • Brisbane Heat, even though they have few concerns about their batting, have more quality in their team. The form of Chris Lynn will be a major boost.

BRH vs MLR Prediction & Betting tips, BBL 2020-21

Brisbane Heat will take on Melbourne Renegades in the 39th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Manuka Oval and is set to begin at 7:15 PM local time.

Even though Brisbane Heat have won quite a few matches of late, we have few concerns about their batting. Apart from Chris Lynn, none of the batsmen have performed consistently. This is something they need to work on. Mind you, every game from now is like a knockout for the Heats.

The bowling has been good throughout with Xavier Bartlett, Jack Wildermuth, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mark Steketee and the all rounders doing a decent job.

For Melbourne Renegades, they’re heading towards another disastrous finish in the Big Bash. They defeated Adelaide Strikers in the previous match but the problem still remains the same i.e their batting. 

The top order failed again and if Mohammad Nabi hadn’t played a blinder, they’ve lost that match as well.

In the bowling department, Peter Hatzoglou picked up a 3-fer and the other bowlers like Kane Richardson, Imad Wasim, Jack Prestwidge bowled well too. The bowling still looks good and only if their batting can perform, they may pick up few wins.

Overall, while there is plenty of rectify for the Heats, we think Renegades batting will struggle against the quality Heat bowling. We’d go in with Heats as the winner of this match.

BRH Team News

Brisbane Heat have included Morne Morkel in the 18 man squad they’ve announced to take on Melbourne Renegades at Canberra

BRH Key Players 

  • Chris Lynn - Chris Lynn has been very good for the Heats. He top scored with a solid knock of 56 in the last match. He’s their main batsman and we back him to come good in the last match.
  • Joe Denly - Joe Denly is a quality batsmen and have got few runs for the Heats. He’ll need to play a big knock to help Heat get a decent total. 
  • Jack Wildermuth - Jack Wildermuth has been the best bowler for the Heats. He picked up 2 wickets in the last match against Sydney Sixers. We think he’ll create a lot of trouble for the Renegades batsmen.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

MLR Team News

No official announcement has been about the Melbourne Renegades squad for the next match of BBL 2020-21.. We think they’ll not tinker much with the winning combination. 

MLR Key Players

  • Aaron Finch - Finch have had a disastrous tournament but he’s their best batsman and we’ll have to back him to perform well in the next match. If he plays well, Renegades will have a good chance of winning the match.
  • Mohammad Nabi - Nabi played a crucial role in Renegades win over the Strikers. He top scored for his team with a magnificent 71. He’ll have to play a key role both with the bat and ball if Renegades have to beat the Heat
  • Kane Richardson - Richardson is the lead pacer for the Renegades. He’s been very consistent with the ball and will be responsible for giving the Renegades few early wickets. He’s good at death as well.

MLR Team Form

Even though Renegades won their last match against the Strikers, they’ve had a horrendous tournament with 2 wins and 7 losses in the 9 games

Melbourne Renegades Predicted Playing 11

Aaron Finch (c), Mackenzie Harvey, Sam Harper (wk), Beau Webster, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Mohammad Nabi, Imad Wasim, Jack Prestwidge, Kane Richardson, Peter Hatzoglou, Noor Ahmad

Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Renegades Prediction

Melbourne Renegades has crumbled as a batting unit. Throughout the tournament they’ve been very inconsistent with the bat which has been the cause of their misery. Brisbane Heat too have few issues to sort out but we think they’ve a very good bowling line up that’ll make life tough for the Renegades batsmen. We’ll go in with Heats as the winners of this match

Final Verdict

Back Brisbane Heat to beat Melbourne Renegades at 1.80 on Bet365 and 1.72 on Betway

BRH vs MLR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Jimmy Pierson and Sam Harper at 8.5 are two good picks. Both have been inconsistent but are quality batsmen we can back to come good.

  • Batsmen

    Chris Lynn at 10.5, Aaron Finch at 10.5, Max Bryant and Joe Denly at 8.5 will form our batting order. Lynn has been in top form while Finch can be a match winner on his day. We’ll back Joe Denly as he’s a good player and has got some runs under his belt. 

  • All rounder

    Jack Wildermuth at 9.0 and Mohammed Nabi at 9.0 will be our all rounders. Wildermuth has been the best bowler for the Heats while Nabi played a magnificent knock of 71 in the last match. 

  • Bowlers

    Mujeeb ur Rahman at 9.0, Kane Richardson at 9.0 and Mark Steketee at 8.5 will complete our team. All the three bowlers have been very good in the last few matches and has consistently picked up the wickets.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Chris Lynn is our preferred captain while Mohammed Nabi can be backed as his deputy

BRH vs MLR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Max Bryant, Chris Lynn (c), Joe Denly, Aaron Finch

  • All Rounder:Jack Wildermuth, Mohammed Nabi(vc)

  • Wicket Keeper:Sam Harper, Jimmy Pierson

  • Bowler:Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mark Steketee, Kame Richardson
