It’s make-or-break for the Perth Scorchers as they line-up against Melbourne Renegades in Match 43 of the Big Bash League (BBL). With just three wins, it’s been a rather forgettable tournament for the Perth Scorchers. From this stage onwards and with four to play, they’ve got to win everything for a realistic chance of making the semi-final cut.

The Melbourne Renegades have had a topsy-turvy season which has seen them lose three on the trot and register six wins from the 11 played thus far. The Scorchers too have not been at their best this season and their batting was a let down more often than not this season. They have been more or less ruled out of the tournament but could hurt the chances of the other teams and play the spoilsport in their campaign as well. Renegades should give their best to win this match.
