For the first time this season, Perth Scorchers will take on Brisbane Heat at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. With five wins from 10 games, the two teams have had a close season and are very much in the hunt for knockouts. The Scorchers are currently ranked fourth with 21 points, ahead of the Heat with 20 points, right behind them in fifth.
Just four points separate as many as five teams with five wins with only 13 league matches to go, and this game is essential for both sides. A victory here would put them a step closer to the playoffs, but a slip-up will make it challenging for them to win and the teams will be aware of it. It generates an exciting rivalry between the two parties.
With the risk of rain being just 10%, it will be mainly sunny in Melbourne. It will have a temperature of about 16 degrees Celsius.
This will be the first match in Docklands Stadium this season. Therefore there isn’t much data about the pitch previously. However, based on previous seasons’ information, the track will assist both the batsmen and the bowlers. The team who chooses to bowl first will be beneficial in this venue.
Ashton Turner (c), Josh Inglis (wk), Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone, Colin Munro, Cameron Bancroft, Fawad Ahmed, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Aaron Hardie
Chris Lynn (c), Jimmy Peirson (wk), Max Bryant, Joe Denly, Joe Burns, Lewis Gregory, James Bazley, Xavier Bartlett, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Morne Morkel, Jack Wildermuth
