THE LOWDOWN

PERTH SCORCHERS

  • Perth Scorchers may still be smarting from having their place in the qualifier snatched from them in dramatic fashion by Sydney Sixers in their final league stage encounter, pushing Perth down into this knockout match.
  • Inconsistency down the stretch ultimately cost the Scorchers, who have lost three of their last five games, despite the scorching form of Laurie Evans, whom Perth will be without moving forward due to his ILT20 commitments.

ADELAIDE STRIKERS

  • Adelaide Strikers’ resounding nine-wicket win over Sydney Thunder last Sunday nailed down a fourth-placed finish and their place in the knockout, where they will have to overcome huge odds to get the better of Perth.
  • The departure of multiple players to the ILT20 has hit the Strikers more than most, with the likes of Chris Lynn, Adam Hose and Jamie Overton, the latter having been one of the highest wicket-takers across the tournament.

THE PREDICTION

It really is a huge challenge for the Strikers to win in Perth without a selection of their best players. Whilst the Scorchers are hampered themselves through the loss of Evans in particular, they have enough strength-in-depth to cover such an absence and on their own patch, should come out of the blocks firing following that gut-wrenching loss at the hands of Sydney Sixers. Expect Perth Scorchers to do enough for victory and qualification through to the ‘challenger’ match.

BETTING TIP: PERTH SCORCHERS TO WIN
