Docklands Stadium’s pitch is a belter of a track. Batting on this surface is preferred by batters since the ball is easier to handle. When bowling on this surface, bowlers must be on their toes. In the most recent game played here, the team batting first successfully protected 153 runs.

In this season’s T20 event, Tymal Mills has been outstanding for the Scorchers. He has already taken four wickets in two matches. The left arm has a 5.42 economy rate, indicating that batters have found it difficult to score runs against him. The Renegades hitters will face a difficult time if he can rediscover his groove.
Mitchell Marsh has been outstanding for the Scorchers in this season’s T20 campaign. The right-hander has 121 runs scored at an average of 121 in two matches. His strike rate of 149.38 indicates that he has hit his stride right away. Marsh would now like to add to his tally of wickets.
The Renegades have only played once at Marvel Stadium this season, and that game ended in a win for Melbourne Renegades over Adelaide Strikers. This will not be an easy match for the Scorchers, who will also have to contend with the return of crucial star Finch.
The Renegades’ batting strength-in-depth, on the other hand, is inferior to Perth’s, who can rely on the likes of Laurie Evans at six and Ashton Agar at seven, demonstrating how deep their bat is. With all of the momentum on their side with a bowling attack led by Andrew Tye, Tymal Mills, and Australian international Marsh, the Perth Scorchers are anticipated to extend their winning streak here, but they will most likely need to dismiss Finch early on.
