Cricket Match Preview:

It just did not happen for Perth Scorchers. No matter how they tried, whom they played, it just did not happen in this season of Big Bash League for them. They have tried various combinations in eleven games of cricket but could not settle down to a lineup that could help them win the cricket games. As a result, they are now at the last position on the points table.

Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, have been very good so far in the tournament. They began slowly but have done wonderfully well for themselves. Their decision to send Marcus Stoinis to open the innings was a masterstroke. It has paid them rich dividends and immediate results. Stoinis has not only scored runs but taken wickets as well.

Ever since the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and Adam Zampa have returned from national duty to their squad, they have resurrected their slipping campaign. The last few cricket games have been very successful for them and they would like to win at least 2 out of the remaining 3 games of cricket. That would ensure that they would have sealed their knockout spot.

Perth Scorchers have just won 1 game of cricket in their last 5 cricket games. Cameron Bancroft did provide them with a bit of relief for a couple of cricket games when he scored half-centuries. Apart from that, it has been a difficult season for them with even their bowling falling away. On a pitch which was supposed to help their bowlers, their bowlers have not quite managed to create pressure on the opposition batsmen.

Cricket Match Information:

Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Stars will take on each other in their 12th game of cricket. Both teams have had completely different run in this tournament so far. While Stars have had a smooth going with 6 wins out of 11 games of cricket, Perth have had just 3 wins out of 11 games of cricket.

Perth Scorchers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Perth Scorchers had a poor start so far in this cricket league. They were one of the most consistent sides ever of the tournament hence, their failure to get going has been surprising to watch. They made a comeback of sorts in the game of cricket against defending champions Adelaide Strikers but have lost all the games of cricket since then. Hence, our prediction is of some changes in their next cricket game. They will also not have the service of Jhye Richardson in the next cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Perth Scorchers’ playing XI:

  • Mitch Marsh
  • Shaun Marsh
  • Cameron Bancroft
  • AJ Turner
  • HWR Cartwright
  • NR Hobson
  • AJ Tye
  • Nathan Coulter-nile
  • JP Behrendorff
  • M Kelly
  • Usman Qadir

Melbourne Stars

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Melbourne Stars made an inspirational comeback after a slow start in the first few cricket games. They will not have the services of Marcus Stoinis in the next cricket game as he has joined the Australian test team for the cricket game against Sri Lanka. Our prediction is of one change in their lineup.

Here is our prediction of Melbourne Stars’ playing XI:

  • Dwayne Bravo
  • Ben Dunk
  • EP Gulbis
  • Peter Handscomb
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • SE Gotch
  • Jackson Bird
  • TL O’Connell
  • Adam Zampa
  • Nick Maddinson
  • Liam Plunkett

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Peter Handscomb has had a quiet tournament so far. Being given the middle order responsibility for Melbourne Stars, there are more expectations from him. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Perth Stadium have produced many high-scoring cricket games in this tournament. The scores in excess of 170 runs have been chased down hence, our prediction is of a score of around 180 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Melbourne Stars will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. The form of Melbourne Stars since the return of key players has made us lean towards Melbourne Stars in this game of cricket. On the other hand, Perth Scorchers have been quite poor since the beginning of the tournament. Hence, our prediction is of a Melbourne Stars’ win in this game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Peter Handscomb (MS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

AJ Tye (PS) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Peter Handscomb (MS)
