Most runs (and average) in the last BBL season from the Perth Scorchers squad
Perth Scorchers have been the most successful franchise in the Big Bash League. They have won the title thrice in the 10 seasons so far. They are tied with Sydney Sixers who also have three championships in BBL.
Perth Scorchers have 3 BBL titles – the joint most in BBL history.Cricket Betting
In all, The scorchers have featured in six finals out of the 10 seasons and have made it to the playoffs 8 times – the highest for any franchise in the BBL. No wonder they are called the most successful franchise in the BBL.

The Scorchers finished runners up in the first two seasons before they grabbed the title in two successive seasons by beating Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Sixers respectively.
In BBL|7, the Scorchers went on to win their third title when they beat the Sixers again, that time by a convincing nine-wicket win.
BBL|8 and BBL|9 were the only two seasons when the Scorchers failed to qualify for the playoffs. They came back stronger in the last season to reach the finals for the sixth time but lost to Sydney Sixers in the finals.
Perth’s success has been a written fact over the years with a semi-final or higher finish in each of the first seven seasons of the league. Barring the 8th and 9th seasons of BBL, they have been a top team.
The Scorchers play their home games at the WACA stadium in Perth. According to numbers, the Scorchers gathered the largest crowds over the years in the Big Bash League.
In fact, in 2018-19, when they finished last, the Perth Scorchers had drawn over 30k fans on an average in a game – the best by a large distance in the league.
Currently, Australian international player, Mitchell Marsh, is the captain of Perth Scorchers and they are being coached by another former Australian international player, Adam Voges. Let’s see if the Marsh-Voges combination can take the Scorchers to yet another trophy in BBL|11.
The Scorchers wouldn’t mind facing Brisbane Heat in the opening encounter as they have won 9 and lost 7 matches in the 16 head-to-head matches.
The story is similar against the Strikers against whom the Scorchers have an exact 50% win record in the 18 matches played thus far in BBL. In the next 4 games, they play Hobart Hurricanes and Melbourne Renegades twice each – at home and away.
With a 60% win percentage – 9 wins and 6 losses in 15 games – against the Hurricanes. The Scorchers must feel confident in tackling them in this season.

On the other hand, the Scorchers have the best record against Melbourne Renegades with 79% win in the 14 encounters – 11 wins and just 3 losses. The Scorchers have at or more than 50% win records against the three remaining franchises as well – Melbourne Stars, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers.
In fact, the Scorchers is the only franchise in the BBL that have won more or the same number of matches against all other franchises. With such a fantastic record against all of the BBL franchises, we can expect the Perth Scorchers to go all the way this time as well.
Big Bash League 2020 Table
The Perth Scorchers team prides on their fast bowling resources. Playing in one of the bounciest tracks in the country, the Scorchers have an impeccable bowling attack, especially on the pace bowling front.
Some of their biggest names in the history of the league are Shaun Marsh, Michael Klinger, Cameron Bancroft, Mitchell Marsh, Adam Voges, Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff.
They have had some excellent coaching staff over the years, but their impressive list of captains show why Perth hasn’t been over-reliant on big Aussie names, yet has delivered on all fronts in the league.
Marcus North, Simon Katich, Adam Voges, Ashton Turner, Michael Klinger and Mitchell Marsh have led the side before.
Some of their excellent overseas recruits over the years have been Paul Collingwood, Herschelle Gibbs, Ian Bell, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Morne Morkel and Tim Bresnan.
The Scorchers have let go of Chris Jordan and Morkel for the season, but have acquired the services of Colin Munro, Jason Roy and Joe Clarke for the 2020 edition.
The current squad assembled is slightly short on batting firepower and will be reliant on the likes of Turner, Livingstone, Bancroft and Patterson.
Cameron Green and Mitchell Marsh offer long term opportunities, but the Perth side lacks a game-changer that can make teams sit up and take notice. Their bowling attack, though, is incredible with Jason Behrendorff, Matt Kelly, Jhye Richardson, Fawad Ahmed and Ashton Agar all a major part of their squad. Green and Marsh are the other big options.
The Perth Scorchers have assembled a group of stunning players this season with some major acquisitions, some of whom will be under the watchful eyes of spectators and analysts.
The Perth Scorchers roster has some amazing new players for the latest edition of the Big Bash League in 2020/21. Here, we discuss the names in the Perth Scorchers squad that could play a major role for them in the season.
Jason Behrendorff – The tall left-arm seamer is an underrated customer in this format of the game. A natural swinger of the new ball, Behrendorff also gets extra bounce off the surface with his height and is a terrific new ball bowler to have.
The left-armer has lost some pace in recent times but his role in the side could be very straightforward – get wickets in the powerplay overs. Behrendorff will look to add some early wickets to his kitty to give Perth a good start with the ball as usual.
A key member in the Perth Scorchers roster, Behrendorff will be closely watched this season particularly with the Aussie team seamers not in the greatest of form.
Jason Roy – The England opener had a forgettable tour of South Africa recently and with the England top-order packed, Roy is in doubt of keeping his place in the side. That’s the England scene, though.
In Australia, on true bouncy wickets, Roy is a treat to have in the side. A clean striker of the ball, Roy swings through the line mercilessly and can be a handful in the powerplay phase where Perth have struggled to score at an acceptable pace in the past. Roy will add some dash of power game too to the Perth Scorchers squad this season.
Cameron Green – An ability to bowl 140kmph or more and averaging above 50 in Sheffield Shield cricket makes Cameron Green a hero already. The all-rounder made a debut in the series against India and could even be in line for a Test debut after his hundred in the tour game for Australia A.
The hit-the-deck seamer had Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan playing and missing against him in the ODIs and could be an integral part of the Scorchers this season. As the critics keep a keen eye on the Perth Scorchers roster, Green could well run away and make a middle-order spot his own this year.
Perth Scorchers Women haven’t had the success in Women’s BBL yet in winning the championship but they have had a constant appearance in the playoffs. They have reached the playoffs 5 times out of and managed to reach the finals twice in WBBL.
In a bid to strengthen the batting lineup they added Beth Mooney – the highest run-scorer in WBBL with 3298 runs in 94 innings at an average of 45.81 with 1 century and 30 fifties – to the squad in 2020 WBBL|6.
In the first season with Scorchers in WBBL|6, Beth Mooney scored nine 30-plus with 4 half-centuries. With her presence in the team, the Scorchers Women must feel confident to go all the way in WBBL|7.
