- Melbourne Renegades have enjoyed a hugely successful men’s BBL campaign thus far following an awful season last year, finishing third-place in the league stage with 14 points.
- In the end, the Renegades finished with a 7-7 record but only once did they manage a three-match winning streak, which they will now need to replicate if they are to lift a second men’s BBL title.
- Brisbane Heat moved on into the knockout match after beating Sydney Thunder in the eliminator, although the win was via DLS after rain curtailed the Thunder’s chase early on, but 11 balls past the five over cut-off.
- The Heat’s Australian international batting stars came up clutch for them in that game and another big performance from both Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne would go a long way towards seeing them through here.
When it comes to play-off T20 cricket in these domestic tournaments, momentum can carry you a long way and whilst Melbourne Renegades have had to wait the longest of any team in the play-offs to finally take to the field, Brisbane Heat are on the back of having played just two days prior to this encounter, which may work in their favour with them already experiencing the rigours of knockout BBL cricket. Just as important for the Heat, is the fact that their most important batters are in excellent form. Scoring over 200 against the Thunder will have done wonders for the confidence of the side and it would be no surprise to see their carry that momentum on into this game. For Melbourne Renegades, plenty depends on Aaron Finch batting at number four, but their top order as a whole has not set the world alight and with that in mind, it’s worth backing Brisbane Heat to topple the Renegades at Docklands Stadium.
