Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades
SGM: Hurricanes Win/McDermott Hurricanes Top Runs ($5.22)

The ‘Canes can take another big step towards a playoffs berth by beating the last-placed Renegades at Marvel Stadium tonight.

They have been a little inconsistent, but the open nature of this year’s competition has meant that they are still well within striking range of the Big Bash leaders.

Ben McDermott has been an utter revelation, and he is sure to prove key to their chances in this match, and indeed a possible finals campaign as well.

The Renegades have returned a few competitive efforts, but it hasn’t been nearly enough again, and their season will draw to a close this week.

I’m backing the Hurricanes to keep the pressure on the top four with another comfortable win.
