For the first time, the Perth Scorchers will face Adelaide Strikers in the BBL 2020-21. With two wins and as many defeats in four matches so far, the Strikers are currently in fifth place in the points table. They have nine points in their pocket, and they’ll be pushed into the top four by a victory here.
Perth Scorcher is languishing in seventh place in the table with just two points to their name without a single win. When they lost all of the matches, one of their games was washed out due to rain. The Scorchers will be keen to get off the mark on Monday to wins.
On Monday, the sun will shine brightly on both teams, and the temperature will be about 17 degrees Celsius without any possibility of rain.
At the Adelaide Oval, a good batting track is expected, with some support available for the bowlers. There should be enough movement off the ground to keep the bowlers involved, while the spinners are also required to influence the BBL game.
The first few overs might be critical for both teams, as run-scoring could be relatively more comfortable against the new ball. With the circumstances not likely to change much during the game, both teams will look to chase if they win the toss.
A respectable total should be 170 runs, as both teams have the firepower to pull off stiff chases.

Given their recent form, strikers will start the game as favourites. They also play on their home ground, which will provide them with the advantage. Alex Carey’s return will be a boost for them, and they’re going to look forward to winning this and climb to the top four. Let’s bet on baji.live to enjoy the excitement of BBL.
