HUR vs REN Dream11 Prediction Big Bash League T20 Live Score, Pitch Report, Player Stats, Dream11 Team for Today’s Match


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.

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.
