Perth Scorchers have put daylight between themselves and Melbourne Renegades when it comes to head-to-head statistics.

Opposite Poles Collide at the Perth Stadium

The two worlds of Big Bash league 2021/22 will come face-to-face on Sunday, when the pole-sitters Perth Scorchers will collide with the basement boys Melbourne Renegades. The former have won all of their five matches so far, accumulating 17 points in the process.

If this record is not impressive in itself, Ashton Turner’s team has asserted their dominance in every single game they have competed in. In their previous encounter against Melbourne Renegades, they batted first and put up 206 runs on the scoreboard, whilst later restricting Nic Maddinson’s team to 185.

Melbourne Renegades, on the other hand, have won only one of their four matches. They had a decent start to their campaign, winning their season opener by two runs against Adelaide Strikers, but have since suffered three consecutive defeats against the Strikers, Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers respectively.

Team News

Perth Scorchers’ batting kingpin Kurtis Patterson, who played a match-winning knock of 78 runs in his previous match against Hurricanes, was unavailable for the encounter against Renegades owing to tightness in his left quadricep. If the 28-year-old regains fitness in time for this game, he could replace wicketkeeper-batter Josh Inglis, who has scored only four runs in his three innings. In such a circumstance, however, Cameron Bancroft will have to keep wickets for the Scorchers.

Renegades’ English pacer Reece Topley leaked 44 runs in the last match against Scorchers and did not have a wicket to show for either. His economy rate in the ongoing edition of Big Bash League is 9.77 runs per over – the highest among the Renegades bowlers to have bowled a minimum of ten overs. Topley can make way for Jack Prestwidge, who did well in the only match he has played this season against Brisbane Heat.

Key Players

Mitchell Marsh: Perth Scorchers have scored over 150 runs in all of their matches this season and lion’s share of the credit for this particular statistic should be given to Mitchell Marsh. The local lad has scored 207 runs in three innings, which is the most by any player from his team, and is one of the three batters to have stuck a century in BBL 2021/22.

Kane Richardson: Melbourne Renegades have been out of sorts with the bat, but led by Kane Richardson, their bowling unit has done a pretty decent job so far. The 30-year-old speedster is currently Renegades’ leading wicket-taker with nine wickets in four matches, while he also happens to be among the four bowlers to have registered a four-wicket haul this season.
