They lost their last two matches playing against Perth Scorchers where batting first Renegades posted a total of 151 Runs on board for the Scorchers to chase. Their star batter, Aaron Finch has been currently struggling with his form and failed to score big in the last fixture. Mackenzie Harvey and Sam Harper put up an opening partnership of 70 odd runs but after their dismissal, the whole batting order fell to pieces.

REN vs HUR, Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Hobart Hurricanes are expected to win against Melbourne Renegades.
While Hobart Hurricanes have players that have done well in the T20 format individually. They came on top of Adelaide Strikers in their last fixture and will be backed by a winning momentum. They are currently favorites to win this contest. Renegades are coming into this game after some bad performances from their bowlers, which cost them their last match.
Given the past encounters between these two sides, the Hurricanes have emerged victorious on four out of five occasions and are certainly a stronger side than the Renegades with their in-form batsmen. While Aaron Finch is still struggling with his poor form the other batters are on a similar page.
