MLR vs HBH Betting Tips

  • Aaron Finch has scored 237 runs in the tournament with no one else in the Melbourne Renegades team for this match having hit more than 114. Finch is our tip for their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Tom Rogers has 15 wickets from eight fixtures and he is well worth backing as the Renegades’ top wicket taker against Hobart Hurricanes.
  • Ben McDermott has hit half-centuries in both of the last two games and he is our pick for Hobart Hurricanes’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Renegades. Spinner Patrick Dooley has gone wicketless in only one match so far in the competition and he is a strong choice for Hobart Hurricanes’ top wicket taker in this clash.
  • We have seen before that when Ben McDermott is on form he can be unstoppable over many games. We recommend backing him to hit over 22.5 runs at the Docklands Stadium.

REN vs HUR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2023

Melbourne Renegades take on Hobart Hurricanes in Match 32 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League at the Docklands Stadium on Saturday early evening. The Renegades are in fifth place with eight points and one place behind are the Hurricanes with six points and a game in hand. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway in Melbourne on January 7th at 17:35 local time.

Melbourne Renegades got back to winning ways in their last match but do not look as strong a side without Nic Maddinson. However, we expect them to be competitive against Hobart Hurricanes.

In spite of not putting together a winning run of more than one match in the tournament, Hobart Hurricanes have played some brilliant cricket. They scored 229 and still lost the last game but we expect them to be too strong here.

REN vs HUR, Docklands Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch is not the quickest in the tournament and offers some movement for the bowlers. We expect a par score of no more than 165.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

REN Team News

Ahead of the Melbourne derby on Tuesday, it was announced that Nic Maddinson, the Melbourne Renegades skipper, would miss the next 12 months of cricket with a knee injury. Former captain Aaron Finch has taken back the role for the rest of this season.

REN Key Players

  • Aaron Finch - His first game back in the leadership role saw him make only one run from two balls. However, Finch is the leading BBL run scorer at this ground with an average of 38.86 from 32 innings.
  • Martin Guptil - The New Zealander hit his highest score of the BBL 2022-23 with 32 runs from 27 balls on Tuesday. With Maddinson out injured, Giptill’s runs become all the more crucial.
  • Tom Rogers - The bowling all-rounder was already having a successful season before dismissing Joe Clarke, Thomas Rogers, Beau Webster, Hilton Cartwright and Luke Wood in the Melbourne derby.

REN Team Form

The Renegades put a stop to their four game losing run with a convincing 33 run victory over their city rivals on January 3rd.

Hobart Hurricanes Team News & Playing 11

HUR Team News

England opener Zak Crawley came into the team for the first time in this campaign against Adelaide Strikers and hit 54 runs from 28 balls. He replaced D’Arcy Short in the side and Crawley did more than enough to keep his place for this game.

HUR Key Players

  • Ben McDermott - The right handed opener has sprung into form since the turn of the year. In his last two innings he has hit a combined 110 runs.
  • Matthew Wade - The skipper made only nine runs from 11 balls on Thursday, but is still the highest scoring player for Hobart Hurricanes so far this season.
  • Patrick Dooley - The left-arm wrist spinner has tournament figures of 12-159 and got the big wicket of Chris Lynn in the defeat to Adelaide Strikers.

HUR Team Form

The Hurricanes will still be wondering quite how they lost the last match which means they have been defeated in three of the last five games.

Who will win Melbourne Renegades vs Hobart Hurricanes T20 Match?

Both teams have good bowling attacks but it is with the bat where the Hurricanes stand out. They have more batters in form than the Renegades and we expect that to be crucial in this match.

MLR vs HBH Top Team Batsmen

Aaron Finch, Martin Guptill and Sam Harper are our batting picks for Melbourne Renegades. Finch is one of two BBL players to have hit 3000 runs and is enjoying a strong season in BBL12. Harper has hit seven half-centuries in T20 cricket.

Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade and Zak Crawley are our recommendations with the bat for Hobart Hurricanes. McDermott is the favourite with the bookies and has been one of the most in-form batters across the last three BBLs. Crawley will attack from the first ball he faces in this game.

MLR vs HBH Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Kane Richardson, Tom Rogers and Akeal Hosein with the ball for Melbourne Renegades. Richardson has the top odds with the bookies but has only six wickets so far in the tournament. Hosein has 12 wickets from 31 overs in the competition and should get some turn from this surface.

We have selected Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis and Patrick Dooley as our bowling choices for Hobart Hurricanes. Meredith has had a consistent season and his extra pace could be a point of difference on this slower pitch. Ellis will enjoy bowling on this surface which should respond well to his variations and slower balls.
