Heavy rain in Geelong overnight intensified pre-existing concerns about the wicket, seeping beneath the covers and affecting the playing surface. The toss was conducted, and Renegades skipper Nic Maddinson decided to put the Scorchers, the defending champions, to bat first, despite the early worries.</p>

<p>The inconsistent bounce caused the Scorchers’ hitters to struggle early on, as was especially clear when Aaron Hardie, an Australian, played and missed many times. The game changed in the seventh over when a ball from Will Sutherland with a lot of movement struck Scorchers batsman Inglis in the crotch.</p>
<p>Soon later, Quinton de Kock, the Renegades’ wicketkeeper, lost a ball that looked identical due to an inside edge. When Inglis tried a drive at a fuller delivery with the next delivery, the ball blew over his bat and reached de Kock.</p>
<p>To vent his frustration, Inglis publicly criticized umpires Ben Treloar and Simon Lightbody. After discussing the state of the pitch, the authorities opted to remove the players off the field with the Scorchers at 2-30 after 6.5 overs.</p>
<p>The ball had “taken big divots out of the wicket,” according to former Australia captain Aaron Finch, who spoke with Fox Cricket. grasped the seam and began to bounce absurdly.”</p>
<p>On December 7, Brisbane Heat defeated Melbourne Stars by 103 runs at the Gabba to kick off the season. The Renegades have not yet won a game in the league; in their first encounter, they were defeated by the Sydney Sixers by a score of only eight runs. On Sunday, however, the Scorchers played their first game of the new campaign.</p>
<p>Australia’s limited-overs players will play in the BBL, but the Test team will play three matches, with the first commencing on December 14 at Optus Stadium in Perth against Pakistan.</p>
