Melbourne Renegades' Big Bash League clash with Perth Scorchers has been abandoned after less than seven overs due to safety concerns on a water-damaged pitch. Because the grounds staff at Geelong's GMHBA Stadium worked hard on Sunday to dry out the pitch under cover after heavy rain overnight. Renegades captain Nick Maddinson announced that the deck was still wet. Scorchers were sent in to bat after the coin toss.
Perth reached 2-30 after 6.5 overs when the umpires stopped play to inspect the pitch, with the match abandoned soon after. The decision came after concerns over inconsistent bounce from the batsmen, particularly the Scorchers; Josh Inglis. Renegades legend Aaron Finch told the Fox Sports broadcast that there have been big changes in delivery. out of the surface. Finch said, Josh Inglis said it looked dangerous when he was batting.
It's just jumping ridiculously. If it's bouncing on someone's body or brain line, it can cause some real problems. It's hard to tell if it's too dangerous when no one has been killed, but you don't want to wait until someone is seriously injured.
