Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers will meet for the second time in three days at the Adelaide Oval. In the previous face-off, the Strikers thumped the Scorchers with 71 runs, and the Perth squad will be keen to send it back to their opposition. So far, the Strikers have churned out 13 points with three wins out of five games and are in third place in the points table.
On the other side, in four outings with the other game being washed out, the Scorchers have bowed to three losses so far. They have not won any game yet, and as soon as time runs out for them, the Scorchers will have to start winning matches. Having only played against the Strikers a few days ago, they would have to return to make a comeback and bag vital points for themselves.
The temperature will be in the mid-20s, and there is no potential for a downpour.
With support on offer for both batsmen and bowlers, an upbeat track beckons, as seen in the previous BBL game at the Adelaide Oval.
Although the batsmen will take the pacers’ attack early on, they will need to keep an eye out for additional bounce and swing. During the match progresses, the spinners should also come into action, with extra bounce likely to play into their hands.
The ball should skid on nicely with this BBL game being played under the lights, making for a reasonably even match between bat and ball. After winning the toss, both teams will look to bat first, with 160-170 runs likely to be a competitive total at this venue.

Compared to the Scorchers, the team is outstanding, but the Marsh leadership team will certainly try to win this game to move up on the points table and collect some points in this game to go ahead and open their winning streak.
It all depends on Marsh and Roy, the star players, who will have to bat very well to get their team aloft the line in this game. With Munro and Livingstone, Inglis makes this batting line-up look so reliable, but cannot bring this team a win.
The bowling department is good, but it can not limit the opposition to an easily chased score, but it will have a big job to do in this game. Adelaide is a strong team, and their star-studded bowling is very consistent, and they have more chances to win today’s match.
