So, much has been made of how Perth Scorchers aren’t as dominant as they used to be. However, they have the chance today to get into the top five with a solid performance at home, backing up from a fine display in Geelong a few nights ago.

They come up against a Brisbane Heat side that has won its past three games. However, the shakiness of the Heat when chasing was on show last game against an injury-affected Hurricanes attack, with Ben Cutting and James Peirson leading them home from a precarious position.

Interestingly, the Scorchers smashed the Heat earlier this season after batting first. Will the same trend continue?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Chris Lynn has a fantastic record vs Scorchers: 470 runs, avg. 58.75, SR: 140.72.
  • However, the difference of Lynn when batting first vs second in BBL09 has been huge. When batting first: 94 (35), 88* (55), 31 (13). When batting second: 9, 6, 14, 9.
  • This is Tom Banton’s final game in BBL09. He has it in him to go big, as he’s shown in his T20 career to date. He has hit a boundary every 3.8 balls in BBL09.
  • Cameron Bancroft scored a 50 in his last meeting vs Heat. Also, Mitchell Marsh is second behind Lynn in the most runs in Scorchers-Heat matches (212 runs at 42.40).
  • Liam Livingstone is coming off a man-of-the-match performance against Renegades. His battle vs James Pattinson, who is set to play this match, will be one to keep an eye out for.
  • Josh Inglis has shown some promise in BBL09 with two fifties in seven innings. Interestingly, both have come when chasing.
  • Ben Cutting is coming off a fine all-round performance vs Hurricanes (1/12, 1 catch and 43*). He has 132 runs and 10 wickets in 11 games vs Scorchers.
  • Fawad Ahmed was man-of-the-match vs Heat earlier this season, taking 3/16. Also, Fawad has taken at least one wicket in each game in Perth this season (four wickets in three matches).
  • Jhye Richardson has hit some form with seven wickets in his last five games. If Perth bowl second, Richardson could be mighty effective against a Heat side that has struggled when chasing.
  • Ben Laughlin has taken nine wickets in seven games in BBL09. He has taken at least one wicket in every game, and fields in the key positions.
  • Chris Jordan has been under-par in his past two games, going wicketless in both. But, his wicket-taking threat remains: he took seven in his first four matches in BBL09.
  • Zahir Khan vs Scorchers this season: 2/18.

Head-to-Head

  • Matches 12, Scorchers 6, Heat 6.
  • Last meeting: Scorchers bowled Heat out for 109 after scoring 149/6 in Carrara, Gold Coast.

Possible Playing 11

Ashton Agar is on ODI duty in India. Liam Guthrie has replaced him in the 13-man squad.

Australian Test bowler James Pattinson comes into the 13-man squad for Brisbane Heat. He is set to play. This means Josh Lalor could miss out if the Heat decide to play two spinners.

Brisbane Heat: 1. Tom Banton, 2. Max Bryant, 3. Chris Lynn (c), 4. Matt Renshaw, 5. Joe Burns, 6. Ben Cutting, 7. Jimmy Peirson (wk), 8. James Pattinson, 9. Mitch Swepson, 10. Ben Laughlin, 11. Zahir Khan

There have been some high-scoring games in Perth this season: 196 vs 185, 174 vs 126 and 180 vs 172. The pacier surface allows batsmen to play freely.

Also, the weather is forecast to be hot in Perth: mid-30s and sunny.

Match Prediction

The team batting first has won all three games in Perth so far in BBL09. Brisbane Heat struggle when chasing. Perth Scorchers have lost both games at home when chasing.

So, it could come down to who bats first in this clash.
