These two sides will play each other twice in the next week, as the race for the top five heats up.

Perth Scorchers sit fifth. Brisbane Heat’s all-time worst BBL collapse yesterday meant they kept their spot in the top five despite two straight defeats. However, the big question is how well they can recover from their travel, having been on eight different flights in the past nine days.

Sydney Thunder sit fourth. Interruptions finally worked in their favour for once this season, winning their last game on the D/L Method against Sixers. Their bowlers were excellent, and will need another big effort here at Optus Stadium, where there have been some big scores in BBL09.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Callum Ferguson is the current leading run-scorer in Thunder-Scorchers matches. He has scored 180 runs against them, including a superb century on this ground last season.
  • Also, Ferguson was man-of-the-match in both meetings vs Scorchers last season.
  • Usman Khawaja vs Scorchers: 149 runs, avg. 49.67, SR: 143.27.
  • Mitchell Marsh has 173 runs in four innings vs Thunder, dismissed just once. Also, Marsh has had a good time of it at Optus Stadium this season: 56* (22), 48 (36), 93* (41), 7.
  • Cameron Bancroft vs Thunder: 174 runs, avg. 58.00, SR: 122.54.
  • Josh Inglis is yet to play Thunder in BBL cricket. However, he has had a fine season, sitting ninth with 324 runs in BBL09. His last two scores in Perth: 28 (14) and 39 (17).
  • Daniel Sams went wicketless in both games vs Scorchers last season. However, he is having a great BBL09 campaign, leading the way with 20 wickets. Out of 10 games this season, he has gone wicketless only once.
  • Chris Morris, man-of-the-match last game vs Sixers, is also in the wickets in BBL09. He has taken five wickets in his past three games, part of 13 wickets in nine games.

Optus Stadium Pitch Report and Conditions

Perth Scorchers were bowled out for 86 in their last game at Optus Stadium. However, that was more due to poor batting, rather than any demons in the pitch.

The Optus Stadium surface has been great for batting in BBL09. It has played host to high-scoring games: 196 vs 185, 174 vs 126, 180 vs 172 and 213 v 179.

The weather forecast is a maximum of 31 degrees during the day and no rain.

Match Prediction

Out of five games in Perth, the only time a team has not won when batting first is when the Scorchers were bowled out for 86.

Thunder chased 180+ in Perth last season, but one gets the feeling that if a team sets the same type of score here, they will come away with the points.
