After a brutal schedule over the past two weeks, Perth Scorchers have finally had the chance to stay put in a single location between matches.

The Scorchers were brilliant in their dominant win vs Thunder a few nights ago, and now have their second game in a row in Perth. It is sweet news for the players who have spent tens of hours on flights so far in 2020, ahead of a crucial game against another top five rival.

Adelaide Strikers still have the chance to seal a top two berth in BBL09. Given that a top two finish guarantees either a final appearance or a second chance, the Strikers will be out for a very strong finish to the league stage to play the Stars in the Qualifier next week; a team they have beaten twice in BBL09.

  • Josh Inglis is enjoying a wonderful run of form: 51, 28, 73, 37, 12, 58.
  • He and Liam Livingstone have the most runs of any opening partnership in BBL09.

  • Mitch Marsh is striking at 151 in BBL09 (367 runs). His record at Perth has been impressive this season: 223 runs, avg. 74.33.
  • The two Ashton’s: Ashton Turner and Ashton Agar, return for Scorchers. They add key batting and bowling depth.
  • Jhye Richardson has been in fine touch, with 10 wickets in his last six matches. Also, he was Player of the Match in the corresponding match vs Strikers last season.
  • This will be Chris Jordan’s final match in BBL09 before he heads off for England duty. He is coming off 3/28 vs Thunder and has 14 wickets in 11 matches this season.
  • Rashid Khan’s three wickets turned the game against Scorchers earlier this season. He is always a factor with the ball.
  • Wes Agar has six wickets in his past two matches.
  • Fawad Ahmed has taken at least one wicket in every game in Perth so far in BBL09.

Head-to-Head

  • Matches 15, Scorchers 8, Strikers 7.
  • Scorchers looked to have the game won when Inglis and Livingstone battered the Strikers’ bowlers to all parts of the Adelaide Oval. But, Strikers roared back to win the earlier meeting this season.
  • Scorchers bowled Strikers out for 88 in Perth last season. However, that was a green pitch compared to the good batting surface available now.

Optus Stadium Pitch Report and Conditions

Sydney Thunder scored 153/5 on Monday night at this ground. They were well short, scoring below the average winning first innings score of 190.75 this season.

So, the moral of the story is: if you bat first, you need to bat well.

The forecast for Perth on Friday evening is warm and clear skies.
