Many can change in the enthralling Big Bash League in a couple of days. Around a week or so ago, the Scorchers were among the back-benchers of BBL 2020/21, failing to win any game in their first four games. Although they’re still in the back-benchers, things aren’t the same right now.
Two consecutive wins are bound to give their morale a considerable boost, and what’s going to add to that is the way they’ve won their last game. They bowled the Melbourne Renegades out for 89 runs in their previous game. Now, they’re going to have to build on this momentum and go on a winning streak, but a difficult test in the form of the Sydney Sixers is ahead of them. The Sixers have won five of their seven games and are justifiably on the top of the table.
It’s going to be a bright and sunny day in Perth, with a temperature of about 34 °C. There’s no chance of rain.
At Perth Stadium, the previous game saw a strong batting track with Colin Munro and Josh Inglis scoring fast runs. A similar kind of surface is expected with the ball rolling under the lights.
However, some movement should be given to pacers early on. The batsmen will hit the shorter sides of the pitch, which might work both ways for the spinners.
With the pitch not expected to change a lot, both teams will ideally want to chase after winning the toss. 70-180 should be par in this area, considering the size of the ground and the firepower on either side of the grid.

Perth Scorchers looks like a dangerous squad, a team that we think is on par with the Sydney Sixers’ consistency. However, there are a few questions about their accuracy. Also, the Sixers have a bowling line up that will enjoy bowling on Perth’s bouncy surface. We want to remain with the visitors for the winners of this match.
