Yet another one-sided game takes place in the ongoing Big Bash League 2018-19: Melbourne Renegades thrashed Perth Scorchers in the 43rd match of the tournament by a fair margin of 78 runs. Daniel Christian and Chris Tremain are the stars for Melbourne, who completely dominated things with their stunning bowling display.
Initially, it was Perth Scorchers, who won the toss and elected to bowl first. Aaron Finch once again failed to knock runs for the team, as he walked back for 4 to his name. Meanwhile, the other opener Harvey and in-form Harper batted brilliantly to put Perth fielders chasing the leather.

However, Andrew Tye ended the domination of Harvey while M Kelly rattled through the defence of Sam Harper. This let down their run rate, as the team ended up scoring 157 on the board, who once expected to put a massive tally on the board.
M Kelly bagged a couple of wickets while Andrew Tye and Usman Qadir picked one wicket each. Melbourne Renegades ended up scoring 50 runs in their last 7 overs, which showed the brilliant death bowling by Perth bowlers.
In reply, it was one of the horrible starts, a cricket team would ever ask. They got 12 runs in their kitty at the end of 6-overs powerplay. In addition to the troubles, they lost 4 wickets as well. The man of the match awardee, Chris Tremain was the wrecker-in-chief with 3 wickets for 4 runs in the powerplay overs.
After the onslaught by Chris Tremain, it was Daniel Christian, who showed his class. He sent back 4 batsmen in the middle overs to guide Melbourne Renegades for a massive victory. Kane Richardson also garnered the figures of 1/6 in his 3 overs.
In total, Perth Scorchers were bundled out for 79 runs. Daniel Christian picked up 4 wickets while Chris Tremain bagged 3 wickets. Cameron Boyce chipped in with a couple of wickets alongside Richardson’s single wicket.
