Big Bash League (BBL08) Fantasy Tips: Heat vs Renegades Preview

Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Renegades

The Big Bash League (BBL) 2018/19 season match #26 will be an interesting fixture. Brisbane Heat (two wins, three losses) will be at The Gabba to take on Melbourne Renegades (three wins, three losses) looking to make it three wins in a row.

Brisbane Heat Preview

The big news coming out of Heat’s latest win was the form of their ‘Bash Brothers’. Chris Lynna and Brendon McCullum fired simultaneously making them an attractive pick for your fantasy XI.  With both the players picking their strike rates above 130, it is time to back them.

Also working his way for the Heat is the mystery bowler Mujeeb Ur Rahman (four wickets, ER 5.89). His affinity to dot balls make him a certainty in your squad, as does Max Bryant’s penchant for aggression (SR 164.19).

Brisbane Heat Predicted XI: 1 Max Bryant 2 Brendon McCullum 3 Chris Lynn 4 Matthew Renshaw 5 Marnus Labuschagne 6 Jimmy Peirson (WK) 7 Ben Cutting 8 James Pattinson 9 Josh Lalor 10 Brendan Doggett 11 Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Melbourne Renegades Preview

The Renegades picked up a win in their last match, courtesy Aaron Finch. With the Australian ODI captain back with the national side, it could be Daniel Christian (125 runs, SR 127.55) who will be vital for Melbourne – and your fantasy side.

With the ball, it is Kane Richardson (11 wickets) who has been consistently among the wickets. If you have picked up Usman Khan Shinwari (ER 6.50), he would have already won you points with his dot balls. Same goes with Cameron Boyce’s frugal ER of 6.20.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Chris Lynn has shown his destructive side against Thunder (54 from 30 balls) with four sixes and four fours and a SR of 180. That is enough to have him as your first pick in your side.

Brendon McCullum hasn’t got going in the season yet, until against Thunder when he scored 56 off 35 balls. The Kiwi captain has scored four sixes in that game and looks to have gained his form back!

Daniel Christian continues to be impressive for the Renegades. His runs have come when the side needed them most and has already won two games for his side. Combine with his ability to pick wickets – Christian is a hot pick for any fantasy XI.
