Players to watch out for:

Josh Inglis

The Perth Scorchers’ keeper-batter top scored again in the win over the Melbourne Renegades. He hit five fours and one six, and a few quick innings on this pitch could be crucial.

Andrew Tye

The experienced right arm medium fast bowler picked up three more wickets on New Year’s Day in Melbourne. He’s looking forward to bowling at Perth Stadium.

Jhye Richardson

The quick bowler bowled Martin Guptill out in his first over on Sunday. He remains one of the tournament’s most impressive bowlers and will undoubtedly be dangerous in this game.

Possible Playing XI:

Adam Lyth, Faf du Plessis, Cameron Bancroft, Josh Inglis (wk), Ashton Turner (c), Aaron Hardie, Nick Hobson, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Hatzoglou

The right-arm fast medium bowler has not disappointed in any of his four appearances for Sydney Thunder. In the win over the Hobart Hurricanes, he struck out Shadab Khan.
