H2H, Played 5, Perth Scorchers 4, Sydney Thunder 1
Just 1 win for the Thunder from 5 matches against the Scorchers
The Thunder have the worst road record in the BBL, winning only 32% of their away matches
The Scorchers have the best home record in the BBL, winning 69% of their home games
There have been more boundaries hit at the WACA than at any other venue (623)
Only once in the last 8 matches played at the WACA, have the total match six’s totaled more than 9
The 3 previous clashes at the WACA have resulted in total match six’s of 7
The Thunder average just 4 six’s per game away from the home, the lowest average in the BBL
The Thunder have won just 3 of 11 matches on the road when defending a total
Scorchers off a last ball lucky win over Renegades but get the advantage of returning home to Perth after two away legs, they lose Agar to the Test squad but do have plenty of depth. The Thunder have now lost 3 from 3 and have been exposed for their patchy quality, their most recent loss a poor effort where firstly they could only manage 157 against one of the weaker bowling line ups (Heat) and then when getting their opponent on the ropes at 6-63 they couldn’t put the game away with Lynn belting them out of the result. While the Scorchers still have a questionable bowling attack against a quality batting list they don’t face that here, their long batting list and depth should prove the difference especially should they bat first I would expect they could knock up a big total and put decisive pressure on the Thunder’s thin middle order.

Melbourne Renegades v Sydney Thunder
Thursday 22nd Dec
Aaron Finch (C), Dwayne Bravo, Tom Cooper, Xavier Doherty, Callum Ferguson, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Sunil Narine, Peter Nevill, Nathan Rimmington, Matt Short, Chris Tremain, Cameron White
Ben Rohrer (c), Fawad Ahmed, Pat Cummins, Jake Doran, Ryan Gibson, Chris Green, Clint McKay, Eoin Morgan, Arjun Nair, Kurtis Patterson, Andre Russell, Gurinder Sandhu, Kerrod White
H2H, Played 5, Melbourne Renegades 4, Sydney Thunder 1
The Renegades have won only 8 of 20 matches played at Etihad Stadium and 6 of those 8 wins have come when chasing a total
Melbourne are winless over the previous 2 seasons when batting 1st at home
The Thunder have the worst away record in the League, winning only 7 of their 21 games since 2011
Sydney also has the worst record on the road when defending a total, winning just 3 of 11
The Renegades have lost their last 5 matches played at Etihad Stadium
Renegades finished just short of the finals (5th) last season and look to have improved with the addition of quality spinners in Narine and Hogg. Their recent home record here has been poor losing last 5 and 12 of their last 20 but I think they get a much weaker opponent here first up. The Thunder were soundly beaten first up on Tuesday night and only have the 1 day break into this away leg, they are desperately lacking class when without Watson and Khawaja, folded quickly in the middle order (in particular against some quality slow bowling which they will again face here) and then offered very little with their bowling attack with only Russell contributing anything that was credible. They also looked uncomfortable against some quality slow bowling (O’Keefe and Botha) and I expect they’ll again struggle against the quality of Narine and Hogg. Keen to be on Renegades
Renegades H2H $1.74 Sportsbet – Renegades WIN
This ground and pitch clearly favoured batsman last season with the equal highest runs per innings (164) which should favour the Renegades here, especially if batting first (highest opening partnership $1.80). Marcus Harris who comes off some excellent recent Shield form is expected to open with Finch.
Renegades highest opening partnership $1.80 Sportsbet – Renegades score highest opening partnership
