The 39th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 season will be played between Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.
This match will start at 1:45 PM IST (6:15 PM local time). It will be live on Sony Sports Network and live streaming is available on Sony LIV.
The Manuka Oval in Canberra will witness the clash of two struggling sides, who are all trying in their own ways to carve their paths into the top 4. The road is uphill, but Brisbane Heat are making the destination look reachable as they have won 3 of their last 4 games.
Things are way more complicated for Melbourne Renegades, as they lost 7 games in a row. That streak was broken in the last game, but they still have a mountain to climb if they were to make it to the top 4. This game will be extremely crucial to both the teams.
