RECAP

All the big news from the world of cricket:

====

Tonight’s clash in Melbourne pits two of the three most in-form teams against each other as a high-octane Friday Night blockbuster under the roof at Etihad Stadium looms.

Between the two sides, they haven’t lost all season thus far and look the early favourites to meet again in a few weeks’ time as the season reaches its climax.

Tonight’s matchup will also pit the two highest wicket takers of BBL|07 so far against each other. Andrew Tye has taken more wickets than any other player so far (nine), while Dwayne Bravo has claimed seven scalps for the Renegades.

Cameron White continues to be the standout batter for the Renegades and was particularly damaging against Brisbane Heat last Saturday night, blasting his way to a half-century before departing for 51.

As for the Scorchers, Hilton Cartwright smoked 58 off 53 against the Stars and looms as an ever-present danger for the home team tonight.

Can Melbourne Renegades beat the Perth Scorchers for the time in BBL history?

Join us from 7.00pm AEDT on 3AW in Melbourne, 6PR in Perth, NTS Digital around the country or through the Cricket Australia website and app for every ball from under the roof at Etihad Stadium.
