The Heat and Renegades are both unbeaten after their opening match after putting in equally impressive performances. The Renegades chased down the Hurricanes’ 165 with nine balls to spare whilst the Heat held on for a dramatic win after posting an impressive 206 against the Stars. In terms of the H2H record between the franchises, Melbourne has the upper hand (5-2) although Brisbane have won both their games at tonight’s venue (Docklands).
Key stat: Over 350 runs have been scored in four of the last five matches between the pair
The unheralded Marcus Harris posted a half-century in the Renegades season opener and may be worth considering here for most runs. Strong form across all formats has seen the left-hand bat dismissed in single figures just once in his last 10 innings. For the Heat, Brendon McCullum started the season well with a quick-fire 40 and appears great value at $4.00.
