Match Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

It is incredible really how things can change after a win. The defending champions, Melbourne Renegades, couldn’t win a game in their first nine fixtures, but now they have won two in a row.

Their second win was championed by the all-round bowling performance- led by Cameron Boyce 4-15 and ably supported by Dan Christian [2-9] and Samit Patel [2-22]- which proceeded to inflict a collapse for the ages as Brisbane Heat lost their last seven wickets for 7 runs.

They will now face Hobart Hurricanes, who despite a whirlwind 48-ball 90 from David Miller, fell to a 10-run defeat at the hands of Adelaide Strikers, after none of their batsman barring ‘Killer Miller’ could post a substantial score in their run-chase of 187.
