Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The Perth Scorchers will host the Melbourne Renegades in the match 7 of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2019-20. Both the sides faced a crushing defeat in their opening game of the season. While the Scorchers went down to the Sydney Sixers scoring only 131 runs with the bat, the Renegades were upstaged by the spirited Sydney Thunder.
The hosts will have to bat well to give any chance to their bowlers. The team has to pull up its socks before yet another season goes out of hands for them. The skipper Mitchell Marsh is expected to step up with his all-round skills for the Scorchers. The Renegades look good in batting while their bowlers will be hoping to shrug off an off day against the Thunder.
There is no rain in the forecast for this match. Sun will be smiling on the Perth Stadium with the temperature expected to hover around 24-26 Degrees Celsius according to AccuWeather.
This is the first match of this season in Perth. In the previous BBL edition, the surface was a brilliant one to bat and chasing was the preferred option. The trend is expected to continue and there should be no surprise if scores around 180-190 are gunned down.
Average first innings score: 157 (7 matches played at the venue in BBL 2018-19)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 5; Lost – 2

Chris Jordan is a very good death bowler and he can score some valuable runs down the order as well. Same is the case with Ashton Agar. Cameron Bancroft and Marsh are decent batsmen and if they get going, very few can stop the duo.
For the Renegades, Finch, hands down, should be your top pick. Marsh, Harper and Christian are also exciting players while Wildermuth opened the innings last season in a few matches while also picked a few wickets. Richardson is expensive but tends to pick wickets in clumps in the death overs.
