After batting first Heat managed to post a target of 128 Runs on board as the Renegades bowlers completely annihilated their batting lineup. Opening the batting Jake Lehmann scored 65 off 53 balls while other batters kept returning to the pavilion at regular intervals.
It was a piece of cake for Renegades in the second innings as Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh put up a partnership during the chase. The Renegades won the match with 5 wickets in hand. The only bowler who stood out was David Grant who picked three scalps.
After their match against Sixers was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is their sixth loss in the tournament. With the addition of key players like Fakhar Zaman in the squad, they have a good batting line-up with the likes of Sam Heazlett, Ben Duckett, and Chris Lynn but those players seem to be missing their natural form and are failing to maintain consistency in every game.

HEA vs HUR, Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Hobart Hurricanes are expected to win against Brisbane Heat.
The Hurricanes are favorites to win their next BBL game given the current form they are in the tournament while the Brisbane Heat hasn’t played with a full-strength team and their bowling hasn’t looked very convincing. Hurricanes are coming into this game after some bad performances from their bowlers, which cost them their last two matches.
Given the past encounters in the last edition between these two, in the last 5 matches, The Heats has emerged victorious four times while the Hurricanes bagged just a single win. It won’t be easy for the Hurricanes to get past the Heat on their home ground. They really need major changes in their tactics to outplay the latter.
