- Four victories in a row for Perth Scorchers see them sat top of the table, with by far the strongest net-run-rate of all the teams competing, an excellent position to be in after six games played.
- The Scorchers were pushed hard by Melbourne Renegades, but ended up doing enough to chase down 156 with five wickets and just two balls remaining.
- Sydney Thunder went big over Hobart Hurricanes on New Year’s Eve, smashing 228/6 batting first, spearheaded by overseas star and England T20 World Cup winner Alex Hales’ 77 from 45 balls.
- That score proved more than enough to overcome Hobart, meaning the Thunder have now win each of their last three men’s BBL fixtures.
Both these teams come into this game in excellent form and an excellent contest is likely. The top-order batting of each side is extremely strong, with Hales in particular a talisman for Sydney Thunder. However, the lower order depth of Perth looks to be more capable of key runs than that of the Thunder, which may prove vital here. Combine that with home advantage being in the Scorchers favour and backing Perth to win should be seriously considered.
