About The Match
The Perth Scorchers playing six matches and have won only one match in Big Bash League 2018-19 and needed to start winning matches as soon as possible. Facing a weekend Melbourne Stars side could just be what they need.
The Melbourne Stars sit on third in the Big Bash League points table. In this match, Stars are going to be playing against the Scorchers, a side that is last in the Big Bash League standings right now.
While the Melbourne Stars have been carrying some good form into this match,they are going to be hit hard by the absence of their leading players. The Scorchers will also lose a couple of key players but have actually ended up having more first choice players available then was expected.
The Melbourne Stars have been hit the hardest by the Australian national team selections.they are going to be missing Adam Zampa, Glenn Maxwell, Peter Handscomb, and Marcus Stoinis for the next three matches. After the drubbing they got in the first two games of the season the team has come out strongly. They have won comfortably against Sydney Sixers, Melbourne Renegades and their last game against Sydney Thunder. With the form and momentum they have emerged as one of the strongest sides this season.
Marcus Stonis has looked good in the season and his opening partner Ben Dunk also has returned to form after initial failures. in Glenn Maxwell and Nick Larkin they have one of the most dangerous middle order and they side would be confident amount the hitting abilities of Dwayne Bravo and Seb Gotch down the order.
The perth scorchers were beaten quite easily by Brisbane Heat in their previous match. That loss came at the Perth Stadium and would have stung the Scorchers. Ashton Turner the only player to be able to get runs for them and that is beginning to be a real problem now.
Mitchell Marsh return to the side as captain did not change the fortunes for the Perth Scorchers as they suffered one more defeat in the tournament at the hands of Brisbane Heat. This was their third consecutive defeat and fifth overall in the six games that the teams has played so far in the season.
Michael Klinger is in good form this season and Cameron Bancroft’s good show in the last game strengthens the batting order for the side. Mitchell Marsh struggled in the last game while Turner seems to finally be turning it around in the season.
The side winning the toss is likely to want bowl first
