Looking forward to tonight’s block buster between the top of the table Sixers and the third placed Scorchers. If the Scorchers were to win then they would move to second place. A win for the Sixers would go a long way to securing them a double chance. So plenty to play for.
A clinical bowling performance set the Scorchers up for victory on Tuesday night in Perth. Jhye Richardson again leading the way with 4 wickets as the team in orange kept Hobart to 139.
A 123 run opening stand between the Englishman Liam Livingstone (54) and Jason Roy (74*) ensured a comfortable victory for the Scorchers and their fifth consecutive win.
Batting second in a rain affected game proved to be a major advantage for the Sixers in their derby win over the Thunder. Josh Phillipe staring again with the bat for the Sixers – he made 64 as they chased the revised Thunder total with 8 balls to spare.
This is a no bet game for me. The Scorchers are on a roll but there are a few queries here. Mitch Marsh looks set to miss with a side strain and Colin Munro is still in doubt with a quad injury. They are two major weapons for the Scorchers. The Scorchers are also back on the road. 4 of their 5 wins have come at home in Perth so I would like to see them do it away from home.
