Brisbane Heat had a disappointing time as they struck with COVID instances in their camp, although with some adjustments to their lineup, they managed to post a decent total for Renegades with the support of their opening batsman Jake Lehmann 65 (52). With the exception of Lehmann, the other batsmen failed to contribute to the innings. And on their bowling attack, David Grant was the only standout, who seemed optimistic in restricting the Renegades to some point upon scooping 3-wickets.
On the other hand, the Renegades have lost their opening batter, Sam Harper, for a golden duck, putting their 129-run chase in jeopardy. Meanwhile, with a promising start to the innings, Aaron Finch 37 (28) and Shaun Marsh 57 (35) form a key partnership that boosts Renegades’ chances of winning the game. Nic Maddinson 22* (14), the next batter, produced an undefeated quickfire knock to help the team to win the match in just 15 overs.
