What could you expect in an encounter between the top teams of the Big Bash League this season? It’s going to be a cracker of course! On one end where Adelaide Strikers are sitting at the top, Adam Voges’ Perth Scorchers are looking to beat them and replace their positions. Just before the match, Cricwizz takes a look at the strength of the sides. Here it is:
Consistent Batting Performance: Whether its Travis Head, Colin Ingram or Alex Carey, all the batsmen are having a great season till date. In the last game against Melbourne Stars, they were looking unbeatable with Travis Head and Carey scored half-centuries. Strikers would be looking to continue their winning streak against one of the top teams of the BBL.
Decent Economy while Bowling: Having Rashid Khan in the squad is the biggest advantage Strikers are having this season. Apart from him, Peter Siddle, Ben Laughlin, and Billy Stanlake are bowling with a good economy rate in almost every game.
Batting Giants: Perth Scorchers might have lost to Sydney Thunder in their last match but are confident of beating Adelaide Strikers. The heroics of Cameron Bancroft against the Thunder was special for them. Apart from him, Michael Klinger, who is ineffective till now, can be dangerous too. Hilton Cartwright in the middle-order is an added advantage for the Scorchers.
Formidable Pace-attack: Mitchell Johnson is the first name that comes to our mind when looking after the bowling attack of the Scorchers. Tim Bresnan is another experienced bowler who did well in the last game against Watson & Co. So, an experienced bowling line-up could help them beat the Strikers.
Cricwizz Prediction: Perth Scorchers can win this battle because of having an edge in their pace bowling.
