Big Bash League, 2018 | Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Renegades, 26th Match | BRH vs MLR Who Will Win

Heat and Renegades will be squaring off for the 26th match of Big Bash League at the Gabba, in Brisbane. Brisbane Heat have definitely got new life as they have won two back-to-back encounters after losing their opening three fixtures on the trot. They are slowly but steadily gaining momentum now and a win here will be their hattrick of wins this season.

In reply, the rain gods made their presence felt in the second half and only 5.3 overs were bowled where Thunder got 34 for the loss of 2 wickets and eventually lost the encounter by 15 runs.

Meanwhile, Melbourne Renegades have won three and lost three from the six matches played and are poised at the fifth position on the points table. Their last encounter came against the table-toppers Hobart Hurricanes whom they handed their first loss of the season by 6 wickets.

The return of Aaron Finch definitely changed the fortunes of Renegades as they registered a win after losing three games on the trot. He marked his arrival with a captivating 42 which included 3 fours and a six which helped in chasing 145 with 6 wickets in hand.
