Melbourne Renegades vs Brisbane Heat

It is the Big Bash League (BBL08) 2018/19 season match #29 and playing at Geelong will be the Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat on Sunday. The Renegades have four wins out of seven and are in the top-half of the BBL08 points tally. The Heat have lost to the Renegades in the reverse fixture on Thursday and will look for immediate revenge.

Melbourne Renegades Preview

Sam Harper (183 runs, SR 142.96) became the first Renegades batsman to pick up a fifty in BBL08 in the previous match. With Aaron Finch out on national duty, he can be your fantasy XI pick. Have a look at Marcus Harris who has returned from national duty and can be impressive with his scores.

With the ball, Kane Richardson leads the Renegades with 11 wickets. It is the duo of Usman Khan Shinwari (ER 6.14) and Cameron Boyce (ER 5.92) who have impressed with their control. Have them as your fantasy picks.

Melbourne Renegades Predicted XI: 1 Mackenzie Harvey 2 Marcus Harris 3 Sam Harper (WK) 4 Tom Cooper 5 Beau Webster 6 Mohammad Nabi 7 Daniel Christian 8 Jack Wildermuth 9 Cameron Boyce 10 Kane Richardson 11 Usman Khan Shinwari

Brisbane Heat Preview

The Heat have just two wins this season, but the improved form of Brendon McCullum (136 runs, SR 121.42) is a big boost for this match. The Kiwi is a good pick to be in your fantasy XI, and so is Chris Lynn (247 runs, SR 129.31).

The Heat bowlers have struggled to pick wickets, which should be a criterion when choosing your fantasy picks. The only one worth looking at is the frugal Mujeeb Ur Rahman (five wickets, ER 5.86).

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

Fantasy Players to Watch

Chris Lynn has already hit 13 sixes this season, averaging two per game. Scores of 84, 33, 54 & 14 in his last four games show that he is on the rise in BBL08. Make him one of your first fantasy picks.

Sam Harper has looked the part with scores of 32 and 56* in his last two games. With Finch out of the reckoning, Harper will become vital for the Renegades. Having him in your fantasy XI is not a bad option.

Usman Khan Shinwari has taken to the BBL like a storm. He has proven tough to be hit, in addition to being clinical with the new ball. Shinwari can be a good pick for your fantasy XI.
