Melbourne Renegades gear up for the second time in three days to take on Brisbane Heat on Sunday evening. The Renegades registered a comprehensive 8-wicket win over the Heat in their previous match at Brisbane. They were on a three match losing streak after winning both of their opening encounters but they have got their BBL season back on track once again with consecutive victories in the last two games. Renegades sit at third on the points table currently with four wins to their name.
The Heat, on the other hand, are lagging behind at bottom second in the points table with only two wins to their name. But they have played a match less than all other teams and hence are still in contention for a top four finish. They would want to be on the right side of the results in this match and would be looking to avenge their loss against the Renegades at home.
Weather and Pitch Conditions: Weather is expected to remain absolutely clear. The pitch will be a bit on the slower side and hence will assist the spinners more.

Batsman: Chris Lynn (11
