Top order batter Marcus Harris returns to the squad after completing his Test duties with the Australian squad earlier in the week.
Brody Couch, who was a Local Replacement Player for Harris, remains eligible for selection as he is now a replacement player for Mohammad Nabi.
Saturday marks the Renegades’ second and final appearance at Marvel Stadium for BBL|10 during a tournament like no other as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Gades will be hoping to repeat their feet of Wednesday night, when they mowed down the Melbourne Stars’ total of 158 in front of a near reduced-capacity crowd at Marvel.
Attendance at Saturday’s match will be capped at 15,000 fans, in accordance with advice from Victorian public health.
Capacity has been limited in the interests of protecting public health and delivering a safe environment for all patrons.
Tickets for all Renegades matches in Melbourne are on sale now and must be pre-purchased online for both venues. There will be no physical tickets for purchase at either ground.

Today, we'll be proudly wearing our Indigenous playing shirt against the Heat.
