Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

As the league stage of the KFC Big Bash League nears its end, we have another match up coming our way, featuring the Hobart Hurricanes who will take on the team at the bottom of the table, the Melbourne Renegades. The Hobart Hurricanes find themselves just outside the top 4 spots and will want to ensure that they get wins in the remaining fixtures to end the league stage on a high. The Melbourne Renegades on the other hand, are effectively out of consideration for the play off stage, having won only 3 out of their 12 matches. They are currently playing for pride with absolutely nothing to lose.

The match is scheduled to take place on the 18th of January, 2022 at the Docklands Stadium. The last fixture between the two teams saw the Hobart Hurricanes get a 9 run victory over the Renegades.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades Pitch Report

The surface at the Docklands Stadium is a batting-friendly wicket, and is expected to assist the batters hugely in both the innings. There is a very little help on offer for the pacers early on, and the spinners will have to bowl tight lengths to fetch any results. Any score above 175 on this pitch, can be considered a competitive score.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades must have picks in your Dream11 lineup

Ben McDermott

Ben McDermott is a right-handed batsman from Hobart Hurricanes who loves scoring runs. He has had a great tournament so far and the highlight so far was the absolute hammering he gave the Renegades, where he scored an incredible 127 runs. He will be a great pick for your fantasy lineup.

Matthew Wade 

The left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman from the Hobart Hurricanes may not be in the best of forms this season, but he is one of those reliable names you want on your lineup because he has a penchant for scoring those big knocks. A handy name to have on your lineup.

D’Arcy Short 

The All-Rounder from the Hobart Hurricanes has been one of their better players in this season of the Big Bash League, having scored 310 runs in 12 games and scalped 5 wickets from 9 innings where he was put on to bowl. He can give you a great points haul as he is handy with the bat and ball.

Aaron Finch 

A batsman that needs no introduction, Finch has been the Renegades’ second highest run scorer this season with 229 runs to his name, just 2 short of Mackenzie Harvey, who is on top of the Team Stats. He has been off form for some time but with no pressure in the remaining fixtures, Aaron can prove to be a lethal run scorer for the Renegades.
