AUS T20 League 2023-2024

Match 10: REN vs HEA


Match number 10 of the AUS T20 League 2023-24 will witness the epic clash between Melbourne Renegades (REN) and Brisbane Heat (HEA) on Thursday, December 21, at the Docklands Stadium, Melbourne. 

Having managed to secure a point from their last outing against the Perth Scorchers (SCO) , REN will be raring to grab all three points against HEA. The men in blue on the other hand are coming off a morale boosting victory over Sydney Thunder (THU) and will be eager to continue the winning momentum.

Convoluted by the absence of key players employed in national duties, the team shoulders extra pressure. Meanwhile, the Brisbane based franchise has convincingly won both of their games so far. With REN relishing on home conditions, the contest promises a riveting battle. The question now is whether this Maddinson led side can use the familiar territory to their own advantage. Ahead of this tantalising encounter, let us have a look at how the two sides fare out in Thursday’s clash  

Match Details

Match: REN vs HEA, 10th Match, AUS T20 League 2023-24

Date: Thursday, December 21, 2023

Time: 1:45 PM

Venue: Docklands Stadium, Melbourne

Pitch and Weather Report

The Docklands Stadium traditionally possesses a flat pitch and quick outfield, favouring batters with shorter boundaries leading to high scoring contests. Batsmen can benefit from a surface conducive for stroke play. While fast bowlers can extract some assistance from the wicket during the initial passage of play, spinners face a demanding environment due to the nature of the pitch. 

Partly cloudy conditions with a maximum temperature of 23 degree celsius is the weather forecast for Thursday. 

REN vs HEA Squads

REN: Nic Maddinson (c), Joe Clarke (wk), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Aaron Finch, Jonathan Wells, Will Sutherland, Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Quinton de Kock, Harry Dixon, Mackenzie Harvey, Fergus O Neill

HEA: Colin Munro (c), Sam Billings (wk), Josh Brown, Nathan McSweeney, Paul Walter, Xavier Bartlett, Michael Neser, Spencer Johnson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mitchell Swepson, Max Bryant, Jordan Buckingham, Jimmy Peirson, Callum Vidler

Match Prediction

Expect a cracking T20 contest with an equally competitive game between bat and ball. REN despite the home advantage look the weaker out of the two teams. HEA on the other hand possess a well rounded squad and have looked lively in the two games they have played so far. 

We predict HEA to win this encounter.
