Melbourne Renegades vs Perth Scorchers match 4th , Disheartened players and coaches from the Melbourne Renegades and Perth Scorchers have commended the match officials for their decision to call off their KFC BBL|13 match in Geelong. The game at GMHBA Stadium on Sunday night saw only 6.5 overs played due to a wet pitch caused by heavy downpours in the Geelong region in the 48 hours leading up to the match. The water seeped under the covers, creating a discernible wet patch across the southern end of the wicket.

Despite concerns about the pitch before the match, both teams made a concerted effort to provide a game for the 6601 fans in attendance. This match marked the fourth of the season and the Renegades’ first home fixture in BBL|13.

The Scorchers’ top four, including Stephen Eskinazi, Cooper Connolly, Aaron Hardie, and Josh Inglis, faced difficulties connecting with the ball. In the seventh over, a three-ball sequence from Will Sutherland to Inglis underscored the challenges.

Sutherland’s deliveries pitched in the same area, with the first two swinging back into Inglis, hitting him in the groin and resulting in an inside edge through to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock. De Kock, positioned to his left, couldn’t hold on to a low chance, highlighting the precarious state of the pitch.

The match officials’ decision was appreciated as it prioritized player safety and prevented potential injuries on the problematic playing surface. “It looked like it probably got worse over the course of the six overs,” Voges said after the match called off.

Match officials got praised for their decision.

“The umpires calling it off when they did I think was the right call.

“I think we were just waiting for something bad to happen tonight and credit to them for forecasting that.

“They (the batters) still copped a few in the stomach but yeah, just thankful that no one’s been seriously injured out of this.

“It’s disappointing for all the people who have come out to watch tonight, but ultimately, I think they made the right call.

“We came for full points. We came to win a game tonight and to split the points through no wrongdoing of our own is frustrating.

“I guess this is so unusual … let’s hope it’s not a situation that we have to worry about again.”
