Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers are being led by Mitch Marsh in this season of Big Bash League. They had their worst season of all-time last year when they finished at the eighth spot. 

Even taking into account their worst season of all time, they remain the most successful team of the league. They have been three-time winners of the tournament, two-time runners-up and two-time semifinalists.

In this season, they have been inconsistent with two wins out of five cricket games. They are coming off a huge win against Brisbane Heat in their last cricket game. After setting 149 runs on the board, they won the game by 40 runs which pushed their run-rate over Hobart Hurricanes. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game barring any injury. 

Here is our prediction of Perth Scorchers’ playing XI:

  • Mitch Marsh
  • Liam Livingstone
  • Cameron Bancroft
  • Ashton Turner
  • Jhye Richardson
  • Chris Jordan
  • Ashton Agar
  • JP Inglis
  • Fawad Ahmed
  • C Green
  • M Kelly

Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes are going to be led by BR McDermott in the league for the first half of the tournament. Matthew Wade is currently busy with an International commitment and as a result, McDermott has the opportunity to lead the side.

Hobart Hurricanes have so far played five cricket games and won two of those. They lost their second last game against Melbourne Stars by just four runs via D/L method. Then they were hammered by Chris Lynn’s Brisbane Heat by 31 runs in a high-scoring game.

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Hobart Hurricanes’ playing XI:

  • BR McDermott
  • DJM Short
  • Riley Meredith
  • James Faulkner
  • M Wright
  • David Miller
  • CP Jewell
  • S Milenko
  • NT Ellis
  • Qais Ahmad
  • CA Rose

Expert Prediction: PS vs HH

The ninth season of Big Bash League is underway. The most successful side of the league ever, Perth Scorchers, will be taking on Hobart Hurricanes in their next cricket game. 

The Big Bash League has been changed as a format this year. The tournament will be played over a period of 42 days and a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams. 

As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the side that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.

The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature, which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament. 

In the last five encounters between the two sides, Hobart Hurricanes have been the winners on three occasions. Our prediction is of a win for Perth Scorchers. They will be playing on their home ground and will be more confident coming into this game of cricket.

Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
