The 37th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Melbourne Renegades take on Brisbane Heat on Jan 6 (Thursday) at GMHBA Stadium, South Geelong, Victoria. The match is to begin at 12:35 pm IST.

Teams Status

Melbourne Renegades

The new year has been kind for Melbourne Renegades. After finishing 2021 with five straight defeats, the Gades are now unbeaten in their opening two fixtures of 2022, although the first one was abandoned due to rain and they had to share points with Sydney Sixers.

Their last match, however, was clean, with them defeating city rivals Melbourne Stars, who were missing a staggering 12 players due to Covid and clearly appeared a shadow of their usual self.

The Renegades took advantage of the Stars’ weakness and registered a five-wicket win, which was largely the effort of their bowlers, who skittled out the other Melbourne side for a mere 126.

The run chase had a bit of a bump when the Gades slipped from 73-1 to 91-5 but Mackenzie Harvey and James Seymour got their team over the line.

England’s Reece Topley has left for national duty but James Pattinson should be back.

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat saw their rescheduled clash with Sydney Sixers postponed again after more Covid cases in their camp left them without enough players to form a playing squad.

The franchise released a statement to address their scant options but remained confident that they will have enough players for the Renegades fixture.

Fakhar Zaman of Pakistan is likely to be one of those replacements, with other reinforcements being local Melbourne players. The hard-hitting leftie will be asked to carry a batting unit that is missing a dozen names.

With the Heat missing so many players, the side that takes the field would likely be very different from that beat Hobart on Jan 1. Thus, form and strategies largely go out the window with them.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Melbourne to win @ 1.57

This is an easy pick. Melbourne face a depleted opponent struggling to put together a playing unit. They are pretty healthy all things considered. That makes this a bit of a mismatch, and it is why we back the Gades to get the job done here. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Highest Opening Partnership – Melbourne Renegades @ 1.725

For Melbourne, the innings will be opened by Aaron Finch and Sam Harper – the former of whom scored a half-century in the last game and the latter in the game earlier. For Brisbane, Zaman will be one of the openers. Granted that the Pakistan leftie is talented, he has only ever played two T20Is in Australia and failed in both of them. Therefore, we think Melbourne have a greater chance of seeing their openers flourishing in this game. The odds have been sourced from 22Bet.

Conclusion

If both the teams had been at full strength, Brisbane may have had the edge but the way they are now, there is little chance of them getting anything out of this game.
