Perth Scorchers looked doomed to finish in the bottom three in the Big Bash League 2020/21 edition a few weeks ago. They have turned their campaign around and look like one of the favourites to confirm their semi-final berth.
Hobart Hurricanes are also favourites to make it to the semis, but their situation is slightly different. They’ve got a little offbeat after winning 5 of their first 7 games and have lost their last two games. Hurricanes will now have to pick up wins when they are still in the third position since the chasing pack is not far behind.
Tomorrow will be a hot day in Perth, with the temperature being around 29°C. The rainfall probabilities are zero.
The Perth Stadium has seen its fair share of high-scoring BBL 2021 matches, and on Tuesday it shouldn’t be any different either. However, the pacers can get an additional bounce and swing off the floor, making for a good contest early on.
There is no turn-on offer for the spinners, although the extra bounce could play into their hands. With 170 being par at this venue, the pitch shouldn’t change much during the game. On winning the toss, both teams will look to chase it.

Both teams have outstanding batting, but there is a bowling unit for Scorchers that can make more use of bouncy conditions at home. The Scorchers, who are our favourites for the match, will also be benefited by playing their last 4 games at the same venue. Let’s back your favourite cricket team at baji.live now!
