Melbourne Renegades are set to cross swords with Hobart Hurricanes in match 26 of the Big Bash League. We're into the halfway stage of the tournament and things are not looking good for Renegades. They have won just one game, while losing four. The Kane Richardson-led side have only managed to beat Adelaide Strikers by two runs. Since then, the team have not been able to get over the winning line and have lost four consecutive games. Also, the margin of defeats have been huge, and their net run rate is not looking good either.

In the batting, only Mackenzie Harvey has looked good. With the ball, Zahir Khan has managed to pick some wickets. The duo though has lacked support. With their back against the walls, the Renegades would be hoping to turn a corner. 

Meanwhile, the Hurricanes have the momentum as they are on a two-match winning streak. The Matthew Wade-led side beat Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers by convincing margins of 24 runs and seven wickets respectively.

On both the wins, the batters stepped up, with opener Ben McDermott leading the charge. He scored 67 and 110 and helped the team post good totals.

Pitch Report

The match is going to be played at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. The surface will be good for batting and given the short boundaries on either side, it is expected to be a high scoring game
