PRS vs MLR Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Perth Scorchers finally managed to open their account in the BBL2020-21 after an impressive win against Adelaide Strikers. Melbourne Renegades on the other hand are coming back from 5 consecutive losses. 

A win for either of the team will revive their tournament while the other team will sink further. 

Can Perth Scorchers back their win with another good performance or will it be Melbourne Renegades, who'll put an end to their losing streak. Read as we preview Perth Scorchers Vs Melbourne Renegades. The match will be played at the Perth Stadium and is set to begin at 1:05 local time.

After 4 back to back losses Perth Scorchers finally pocketed a victory as they defeated Adelaide Strikers by 7 wickets. 

The game was a perfect example of what Perth Scorchers are capable of. 
They bowled well and restricted Adelaide Strikers to paltry 146 and then chased it down with just 3 wickets down.

Jhye Richardson and Aaron Hardie were the pick of the bowlers and got good support from Jason Behrendorff z Andre Tye and Fawad Ahmed. 

Jason Roy, Josh Inglish and Mitchell Marsh were the top scorers for Perth.
The form of Colin Munro will still be a cause of concern though.  
If they can replicate their performance against Melbourne Renegades, they'll definitely have their second win of the tournament

Melbourne Renegades performance on the other hand are is getting from bad to worse. They now lost 5 games in a row and a win in the next game is a must to keep their hopes alive in the tournament.

Shaun Marsh has started to find some form but other players like Aaron Finch, Riley Rossouw, Sam Harper have been very disappointing. 
The kind of batting performance they're delivering, losing the last 5 matches shouldn't be a surprise.

In the bowling department, Kane Richardson, Imad Wasim,  Mitchell Perry, Peter Hatzoglou have failed to pick regular wickets.

Overall, both teams have plenty of flaws in their team but Perth Scorchers got most things right in their last match and we expect them back their performance with another good one.

PRS Team News

Perth Scorchers have named the same squad that played against Adelaide Strikers to take on Melbourne Renegades.

PRS Key Players

  • Colin Munro - Colin Munro can be destructive at the top. He's not been in the best of form but we'll back him to come good in the next match. He's sort of batsmen that can win you games on his own.
  • Jason Roy - Jason Roy played a solid knock of 49 against the Strikers. With some runs behind him, he can be backed to continue his good form in BBL 2020-21.
  • Jhye Richardson- Jhye Richardson was terrific in last match and ended with figures of 3-19. Perth Scorchers will hope that he can replicate this performance against Renegades as well.

There is no official announcement about Melbourne Renegades squad that will take on Perth Scorchers. We assume that they'll go in with the same set of players.

MLR Key Players

  • Shaun Marsh - Shaun Marsh scored a scintillating 87 off 48. In the earlier match he scored a solid 67. With two good knocks, he is back in form and is expected to play well against Scorchers.
  • Aaron Finch - We just can't get over Aaron Finch. He is a man that can single handedly win you matches. He is not in the best of form but we will still back him for the next game. The risk to reward is very high with Finch. 
  • Kane Richardson - Kane Richardson is consistently bowling well now. We back him to come good in the next match.

PRS vs MLR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Sam Harper and Josh Inglish at 8.5 are terrific picks. Josh Inglish found some form in the last match and stroked a solid 44. Sam Harper has also played some good knocks for Renegades.

  • Batsmen

    Jason Roy at 10.0, Shaun Marsh at 10, Colin Munro at 9.5 will make a strong batting. Marsh and Roy were exceptional with the bat in their last game while Munro we have picked because he’s batsmen that can win you matches on his own.

  • All rounder

    Mitch Marsh at 9.5, Liam Livingstone at 9.0 and Mohammed Nabi at 9.0 are quality all round options. Mitchell Marsh batted well for his 38 against Strikers while Liam Livingstone is also a handy cricketer to have. Nabi also had a good last game.

  • Bowlers

    Kane Richardson at 9.0 Jhye Richardson at 9.0 and Peter Hatzoglou at 8.5 will complete your team. Kane Richardson and Jhye Richardson are two leading bowlers for their respective games but Peter Hatzoglou has bowled well in all the matches he’s played.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Jason Roy is a great choice for the skipper as he's one player that can play real big innings. Shaun Marsh will be our preferred Choice for Vice captain

PRS vs MLR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Jason Roy (C), Colin Munro, Shaun Marsh(vc)

  • Wicket Keeper:Josh Inglish, Sam Harper
