Fantasy Cricket: Hurricanes v Renegades BBL Preview


Hobart Hurricanes will host Melbourne Renegades for the 10th match of Big Bash League 2020-21. Both will take on each other at Bellerive Oval with aim of strong comebacks.

Both teams are coming into this match on the back of a loss. However, the task seems to be tougher for the Renegades. 

Hobart Hurricanes Preview

After two back-to-back wins, Hobart Hurricanes were defeated by Adelaide Strikers in their previous match. They lost a few early wickets and could set a mere target of 147. Despite the poor show, one can trust the core strength in batting the Hurricanes boost. In the bowling department, James Faulkner has been pretty effective in leading the scene with the all-rounders chipping in when required.

Among the bunch of batsmen, Darcy Short, Ben McDermott, Colin Ingram, and Tim David are the ones the Hurricanes will look up to. They can be very good picks for fantasy teams along with Faulkner, Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis, and Scott Boland doing the tricks with the ball. 

Melbourne Renegades Preview

Melbourne Renegades have only played two games so far this season with a record defeat to their name from the previous one. While chasing 206 runs, the Renegades were bundled up for 60 runs against Sydney Sixers in 10.4 overs. However, they had a fantastic league opener where the bowlers produced match-winning spells and the batsmen utilized the opportunity well.

An experienced bowling line-up is going to be key for the Renegades if they want to do well in this match. Peter Hatzoglou has been quite impressive in both matches and can be a good choice for fantasy teams. But the Renegades batting lacks stability in the middle-order. Aaron Finch is granted extended leave which means Shaun Marsh will captain the side.

Fantasy Players to Watch

In 3 matches Colin Ingram has scored 42 runs with a strike rate above 131. In the middle-order, Ingram’s good score can give stability as well as fantasy points.

7 wickets from 3 matches at an average of 11.14 and economy of 6.50. There’s no doubt why James Faulkner should be a key fantasy team pick.

Peter Hatzoglou has been a consistent performer and taken 4 wickets from 2 matches so far. Even in the disastrous outing against the Sixers, he shined. Hatzoglou should give good fantasy points.
