STR vs SCO Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 48 | AS vs PS Dream11 Prediction Today | Adelaide Pitch Report

Adelaide Strikers are in freefall. They need a lift, and what better way to achieve that than by victory against high-flying Perth Scorchers? Here is a chance to get their season back on track.

However, it is easier said than done. The Strikers have won just two of their last nine games, with the arrival of Test stars Travis Head and Alex Carey doing little to lift the team’s form.

Scorchers, on the other hand, can mathematically seal another top two finish with victory here. If they continue to play the way they have, they will be mighty tough to beat as the lineup is filled with matchwinners. Last time out, it was the impressive Aaron Hardie who got the job done alongside Josh Inglis.
