Australia T20 League Match Prediction: Melbourne Renegades vs Brisbane Heat

The 56th match of the ongoing Australia T20 League will witness a cracking encounter between Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat on Monday (27th January 2020). The match will be played at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. The game is slated to begin at 9:15 AM IST. Brisbane Heat, after losing three consecutive matches, roared back with a commanding win in their last match. The Chris Lynn-led side is currently standing at fifth spot with 12 points in thirteen matches. Renegades, on the other hand, are having a torrid run in this season. The defending champions are languishing at the bottom of the table with just 4 points in thirteen matches.

Brisbane Heat, after losing three back to back matches, got back to winning ways in their previous encounter. In their last fixture, Heat clinched a comprehensive win over in-form Melbourne Stars. South African batting maestro AB de Villers was the star with the bat as he set up Heat’s win with a 37-ball 71. The win also boosted Heat’s net run rate and they are still in contention for a playoff spot. 

Renegades, at the same time, have struggled in this tournament. The Aaron Finch-led side have just won two out of their thirteen matches and their chance of making it into the playoffs is over. In their last match, skipper Aaron Finch played a blinder of an innings and scored a crucial century but Renegades' poor bowling let them down. Renegades will be eager to end their dismal campaign on a winning note.
