The Melbourne Renegades will chase 163 for victory after putting the clamps on the Hobart Hurricanes' high-powered batting line-up in their BBL clash.

The Hurricanes were sent in to bat and were cruising at 2-94 after 11 overs, but collapsed mid-innings and limped to 8-162.

Kane Richardson (2-20) and Tom Rogers (2-40) did the most damage with the ball and the latter excelled in the field.

A five-wicket hero in his previous outing, Rogers ran out danger men Matthew Wade (20) and Tim David (nine) with direct hits.

Openers Caleb Jewell (28 off 17) and Ben McDermott (28 off 23) top-scored for the Hurricanes.

There was drama in the second over when the Renegades thought they had Jewell trapped lbw by Mujeeb Ur Rahman (0-37) and went upstairs for a review when the batter was given not out.

Snicko confirmed there was no bat involved but the third umpire said ball tracking was not available, meaning the on-field call stood.

Jewell, who was on one at the time, survived and Renegades stand-in captain Aaron Finch was left bewildered.

"It just doesn't make any sense, does it? I don't know how to explain that," Finch said during the Fox Sports broadcast.

Two balls later, Jewell rubbed salt in the Renegades' wound when he smacked Mujeeb for six.

Earlier, left-arm spinner Patrick Dooley was a late withdrawal from the Hurricanes' line-up after suffering a finger injury during the warm-up.

He was sent for an X-ray, with Joel Paris called in as a replacement.
