Cricket Match Preview:

Slowly but surely, the best cricket teams of this year’s Big Bash League are rising above the competition. As of now, Hobart Hurricanes have already reached the knock out stage, while Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Renegades are second and third on the points table with 5 wins under their belt. Based on history, teams must have 8 wins under their kitty to make the next round. This leaves the likes of Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers with a simple equation. They need to win most of their remaining cricket games in the tournament.

Perth Scorchers cannot afford to have more slip-ups in the tournament. Led by skipper Ashton Turner, they have struggled to gain momentum and have only managed to win 3 games. As a result, they are on the last position on the points table. They will now have to win all their remaining games of cricket to make it to the next round.

Sydney Thunders, on the other hand, have been very good batting wise, with consistent scores of over 150 runs while batting first or chasing the total. Skipper Shane Watson has played some very good cricket at the top. However, their bowling has been a cause for concern for them in a few cricket games as we saw them allow Hobart Hurricanes to chase down the total of 193 runs.

The fact that the strongest suit of Perth will be taking on Sydney Thunder is what makes this contest a fascinating one. The bowling of Perth and the batting might of Thunder is going to be a sight to behold. The pitch of Perth is also going to come to the aid of Perth’s bowlers. One of the areas where Perth can target the Thunder is their middle order, which has not come to the party as yet. Jason Sangha fired in one cricket game but apart from him, there has not been too many big scores from the others’ bat.

Cricket Match Information:

Perth Scorchers and Sydney Thunder will take on each other in their 10th cricket game of 2019 edition of Big Bash League. Both teams have played 9 games of cricket each, out of which Thunder have won 4 games of cricket while Perth have managed to win only 3 games of cricket.

Perth Scorchers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Perth Scorchers have had a poor tournament so far. Historically, they were one of the most consistent sides of the tournament hence, this performance has been quite shocking from their standards. They played some good cricket in their last cricket game against Hobart Hurricanes but failed to win the game. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Jason Behrendorff in their next cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Perth Scorchers’ playing XI:

  • M Klinger
  • Cameron Bancroft
  • SM Whiteman
  • AM Hardie
  • AJ Turner
  • HWR Cartwright
  • Usman Qadir
  • WG Bosisto
  • Nathan Coulter-nile
  • JP Behrendorff
  • AJ Tye
  • M Kelly

Sydney Thunder

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sydney Thunder, led by Shane Watson, have played some good cricket. They were unlucky in their last cricket game as that was a game they should have won if not for the floodlight’s failure. Hence, our prediction is they will be playing the same playing eleven in their next cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Sydney Thunder’s playing XI:

  • Shane Watson
  • AP Devcich
  • JS Lenton
  • C Ferguson
  • JD Cook
  • CJ Green
  • AJ Nair
  • Fawad Ahmed
  • Daniel Sams
  • Chris Jordan
  • GS Sandhu

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Cameron Bancroft has looked in great touch in this tournament. He scored two consecutive fifties before getting out for a duck in the last cricket game. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Perth Stadium is likely to assist the bowlers of Perth Scorchers. Although they failed to defend their total in the last cricket game against Hobart Hurricanes, they will back themselves to do the job against Sydney Thunder. Our prediction is of a quick pitch. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Perth Scorchers will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have looked in good form in their last three cricket games. This cricket game being played at their home venue also adds to their advantage. Hence, our prediction is of a Perth Scorchers’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Cameron Bancroft (PS) – 50+ runs
