Match 25 of the Big Bash League (BBL) has the Perth Scorchers taking on Melbourne Renegades at the Perth Stadium on Sunday.
The Perth Scorchers won their first BBL fixture of the season earlier in the week courtesy an inspired performance from Jhye Richardson. The likes of Liam Livingstone, Jason Roy, Ashton Turner and Mitchell Marsh makes the Scorchers a formidable outfit.
On the other hand, the Renegades have only won one game so far in BBL 2020. Incidentally, that win came against the Scorchers earlier in the tournament. Although Shaun Marsh has looked in good form, the likes of Aaron Finch and Rilee Rossouw are yet to fire. With time seemingly running out for the Renegades, it could be make or break for them in this BBL contest.
The Scorchers, who are the home side for this game, are the overwhelming favourites and will be keen to sustain their winning run in the tournament. However, the Renegades have a lot of depth in both departments, which could have a say in the outcome of the game. Nevertheless, with two valuable points up for grabs for both sides, another cracking contest beckons in BBL 2020.

Match: Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Renegades, Match 25
Date: 3rd January 2021, at 10:35 AM IST
Venue: Perth Stadium, Perth.
With a fresh pitch awaiting the two sides at the Optus Stadium, another high-scoring BBL game could be on the cards.
The pacers should enjoy the conditions here, as there is likely to be extra bounce and swing on offer. However, the batsmen shouldn't be too fazed, as the dimensions of the ground could be to their advantage. The spinners could also have a say in this BBL game although there is not much margin of error for the likes of Fawad Ahmed and Peter Hatzoglou.
Both teams wouldn't mind batting first, as this is a day game. 170 runs should be a par score at this venue although both teams are capable of chasing tall targets, as they have pretty strong batting units.
