Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat

Perth Scorchers (Match Odds – 1.57):


The previous match between the Perth Scorchers and the Sydney Thunder was only their second loss of the season. They batted first and posted a disappointing 142-9, losing by 6 wickets. Only captain Ashton Turner batted in this poor batting performance (61 off 37 balls).

The loss would not bother the Scorchers because they have been outstanding overall. Josh Inglis has 240 runs in seven matches this season at a strike rate of nearly 152. Turner has also been reliable, accumulating 194 runs at 148.09. Perth will be hoping for more runs from Adam Lyth, who has only 73 in 7 matches at an average of 10.42.

This season, Perth’s greatest strength has been their bowling. Jhye Richardson (15 wickets in 7 matches at a 7.81 economy rate) and Andrew Tye (13 wickets at 7.81) have been the team’s wreckers-in-chief. Jason Behrendorff (11 wickets at 6.85) has also been on a roll.

Full Squad:

Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Cooper Connolly, Cameron Green, Aaron Hardie, Peter Hatzoglou, Nick Hobson, Josh Inglis, Matthew Kelly, Faf du Plessis, Tymal Mills, Lance Morris, Jhye Richardson, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Adam Lyth, Stephen Eskinazi, Hamish McKenzie

Brisbane Heat (Match Odds – 2.40):


The Brisbane Heat are in a difficult situation right now, with only two wins in seven games. Rain forced the cancellation of their previous match against the Sydney Sixers. Brisbane was on a roll at the time, having blasted 147-6 in 13 overs, with Michael Neser batting on 45 off only 18 balls.

They must now defeat table-toppers Perth in order to claw their way up the table. Colin Munro, their leading scorer with 233 runs in seven matches at an economy rate of 146.54, is in excellent form and will be crucial on this difficult pitch. Also keep an eye out for Sam Billings, who has 160 runs in 7 matches at 135.59.

Michael Neser has been the most consistent bowler, with 10 wickets in 5 innings at an economy of 8.26, followed by Mark Steketee (9 wickets at 9.49). Matthew Kuhnemann, a left-arm spinner, has also been impressive (7 wickets in 6 innings at 7.12).

Full Squad:

Xavier Bartlett, James Bazley, Sam Billings, Nathan McSweeney, Max Bryant, Sam Hain, Sam Heazlett, Usman Khawaja, Matthew Kuhnemann, Marnus Labuschagne, Colin Munro, Michael Neser, Jimmy Peirson, Matthew Renshaw, Mark Steketee, Mitchell Swepson, Ross Whiteley, Jack Wildermuth, Spencer Johnson, Will Prestwidge, Josh Brown
