HEA vs REN: Melbourne Renegades have made a winning start to their BBL 2022-23 campaign as they beat Brisbane Heat by 22 runs on Thursday. Riding on a match-winning knock of 87 runs in just 49 deliveries from Maddinson, the Renegades put in a massive score of 166 runs on the board.

Sam Harper also played a handy short cameo of 21 runs in 15 balls but couldn’t convert that into a big. The duo amassed a 65-run partnership in the six balls. However, wickets fell in quick succession after that.

On the first ball of the seventh over, Harper got out, and, in the next over, Swepson had Jake Frazer out bowled. M Kuhnemann then picked two vital wickets from Finch (4) and Wells (1) to leave the team in trouble at 74 for 4.

Russell-Maddinson stitch 78-run partnership

Russell then joined hands with Maddinson and led the team’s recovery. The duo added 78 runs for the 5th wicket and helped the team reach the 150-run mark. M Kuhnemann got the important wicket of the Renegades’ skipper in the 18th over. Russell, on the other hand, amassed 35 off 28 as Renegades finished at 166 at the end of the first innings.

For the Brisbane Heat’s bowling unit, M Kuhnemann was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 3 for 32 in 4 overs. In pursuit of the target, the Heat had lost three top-order wickets inside seven overs for just 34 on the board.

Colin Munro kept the hopes alive with a 30-ball 35-run fighting knock but his unfortunate run-out pegged the team back, further.

Jimmy Peirson (43 off 30) hit some lusty blows and threatened to take the game away but he too couldn’t stay for too long, either. Akeal Hosein had his stumps rattled in the 15th over to take complete control of the game. In the end, Brisbane Heat fell 22 runs short of the target.
