HUR vs REN Dream11 Prediction: The next couple of matches are a must-win for the Hobart Hurricanes for them to cement their position in the eliminators. The Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, are occupying the fifth spot in BBL 11 rankings with six wins and as many losses and 24 points to their name. For the Melbourne Renegades, who’ve had a forgettable run in BBL 11, it’s a matter of playing for pride and finishing the season on a positive note. The former champions are seated at the bottom of the points table with merely 3 wins in 12 matches and are likely to make some changes in their line-up for the two matches that remain.

Ben McDermott Stats in T20
For someone who’s hit over 100 sixes and 140 fours in his T20 career, and is currently enjoying a dream run with the willow with 513 runs in BBL 11, that include 2 hundreds and as many fifties, McDermott makes a solid case as a captain or vice-captain in the fantasy line-up.
Matthew Wade Stats in T20
Wade’s comeback against the Sydney Thunder witnessed the Hurricanes captain bash a match-winning 83* off 54 deliveries to seal the deal at Docklands. One of the greats in the shortest format, a lot’s riding on Wade’s performance as it could be the difference between victory and a defeat for the Hurricanes.

Aaron Finch Stats in T20
Finch’s experience at the top-order is invaluable for the Renegades, for he’s been a backbone in their batting attack in BBL, and once settled, he could foil the Hurricanes’ bowling attack without duress.
Shaun Marsh Stats in T20
Though he’s had a moderate season so far, it could be argued that the BBL legend might come up with a dazzling show against the Hurricanes and perhaps spoil their chances for a berth in the eliminators. An experienced campaigner who is well adept in this format of the game, Marsh’s contributions could make or break the chances of a Renegades’ triumph.
Hobart Hurricanes will be desperately seeking a win against the Melbourne Renegades in the upcoming matchup to strengthen their chances for the knockouts. The Hurricanes had their share of successes in the last five matches, and with the likes of Matthew Wade, Ben McDermott, Caleb Jewell, Riley Meredith and Sandeep Lamichhane racking up startling exhibitions throughout, it’s highly possible that the Hobart-based franchise could get the better of an evicted Melbourne Renegades. As per HUR vs REN today match prediction and Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades cricket betting tips, Hobart Hurricanes are the favorites for the upcoming match at Docklands.
