Both teams are coming from a win from their previous matches and they will be looking to continue the winning momentum as they are clashing for the First time in this season at Aurora Stadium, Launceston on 30th December.
Hobart Hurricanes are standing at top of the table as they haven’t lost a game in this tournament. Captain Matthew Wade who was, man of the match of the previous match smacked a 120 run opening partnership with D’Arcy Short and George Bailey providing finishing touch in a 193 run chase against Thunders. Their bowling particularly Jofra Archer looks bit pale but rest is all sorted.
Perth Scorcher had shown in the match against Adelaide Strikers why they are the best team of the BBL. They dismantled strong Adelaide batting line up for mere 108 with their lethal bowling lead by Jhye Richardson who took 3 wickets along with Behrendorff and Tye sharing 2 wickets each. Standing 5th in the points table, they’ll be looking to repeat the same performance in this match also.
Cameron Bancroft comes in for Josh Inglis.
