A side losing its way and a side proving why they are champions take each other on. The Renegades are falling while the Scorchers, after a poor start are rising handsomely with three commanding wins in three games. They beat the Strikers a few days ago to announce their rise as they took on the best side at the moment, and beat them well.

REN vs SCO Key Players
Mujeeb Ur Rahman
If Melbourne are to stand a chance they will need someone out of the box to help. Andre Russell is one such candidate and the other is Mujeeb Ur Rahman. If he gets to play, Rahman will have to find a way to make the Scorchers dance to his spin as he looks to get the Renegades back to winning ways.
Josh Inglis has enjoyed an extended run in the national team and is rising up the ladder among the leading wicket-keeping batters in the country. He is an asset in the middle-order and can be really consistent in T20 Cricket when he gets going.

REN vs SCO Match Tips
