SCO vs STR Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 16 | PS vs AS Dream11 Prediction Today | Perth Pitch Report

After Christmas, we are in for another feast with two of the quality teams of BBL 12 doing battle on this Boxing Day. Perth Scorchers, despite losing a number of players before the tournament, are contenders once again. Adelaide Strikers, after coming so close to reaching last year’s final, are up there once again thanks to a great start to the season.

Two strong bowling attacks will meet head on in what makes for a cracking contest. Early wickets will be key, but with both sides having capable middle orders, it will be on the bowlers to keep the pressure on. With top spot up for grabs, the opportunity is there for the two teams to consolidate.
