Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Renegades Match 4, Prediction

Match Preview and Odds

The 10th edition of the Big Bash League (BBL) is underway. In match number four, it is Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades who will square off at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

Perth Scorchers had a pretty inconsistent run last season. They didn’t have a great start as they lost three out of their four games. They did manage to gather some momentum and needed to win at least one of their last two games to qualify for the knockouts. However, they lost two in a row.

This year, Perth Scorchers have retained largely the same squad. However, the three-time BBL champions have added some quality overseas options in form of Jason Roy, Colin Munro and Joe Clarke. They have finished eighth and sixth in the last couple of seasons and will want to correct that this time around.

On the other hand, Melbourne Renegades who won the title in the 2018-19 BBL had a very poor season last year. They finished with the wooden spoon and had as many as nine games to start the season. In the end, won a mere three games out of the last five to end the last season. While their batting was decent, it is their bowling that lacked bite.

Thus, for this season, they have added a little more bowling depth. The likes of Noor Ahmad, Josh Lalor, James Pattinson, Imran Tahir and Imad Wasim add a lot more teeth to the bowling attack.

Moreover, Perth Scorchers have the wood on Melbourne Renegades when it comes to their head-to-head record as well. It is 10-2 in favour of Perth Scorchers. Thus, with last year’s finishes and overall head-to-head record in consideration, the winning odds are in favour of Perth Scorchers which is slated at 1.75. Meanwhile, Melbourne Renegades have the winning odds placed at 2.21.

Match Predictions

This is the first game of the tournament for both teams. Barring one season, Melbourne Renegades have just not been able to get it past Perth Scorchers in even a single season. However, the Aaron Finch-led side are better stacked up this season. They might just get the better of Perth Scorchers.

Summary

Perth Scorchers square off against Melbourne Renegades to kickstart the BBL 10 season. Perth Scorchers have an overwhelming head-to-head record against Melbourne Renegades. In fact, until the 2018-19 season, Perth Scorchers were unbeaten and it is only in the 2018-19 season that Melbourne Renegades broke the jinx. However, it went back to “normal” in the 2019-20 season as the Mitchell Marsh-led side won both games against Melbourne Renegades.
