Melbourne Renegades and Perth Scorchers will face-off in the 24th match of the ongoing 12th season of the Big Bash League at the Docklands Stadium tomorrow. First BBL 2022-23 match of 2023 will witness both these teams locking horns against each other after more than a year.

Having not faced each other in 2022, the last Renegades-Scorchers clash dates back to Boxing Day 2021 when the visitors had registered a clinical 8-wicket victory at the same venue.

Scorchers, who have maintained a breathtaking head-to-head record against Renegades over the years, have won four out of their last five matches against this opposition. Readers must note that this domination extends to both away venues and the month of January. However, PS have never been able to defeat MR on a Sunday.
