Match Prediction – Hobart Hurricanes vs Perth Scorchers, 12th Match BBL 2021/22

Hobart Hurricanes will take on Perth Scorchers in the 12th match of Big Bash League 2021. The two teams are arriving to this game after managing a win in their most recent matches.

Hobart Hurricanes might’ve begun their campaign with a loss to defending champions Sydney Sixers but they’ve managed to bounce back spectacularly. Hurricanes’ batting unit had a field day in the reverse fixture against Sydney Sixers. Led by captain Matthew Wade’s star-studded knock of 93 runs off just 46 deliveries and D’Arcy Short’s unbeaten 73 off 51, Hobart Hurricanes posted 213 runs on the board. With the exception of Josh Philippe’s knock, Sydney Sixers failed to get going in the rain-curtailed run chase and fell short by 44 runs.

Thanks to that magnificent win, Hurricanes are now fifth in the table. They have five points to their name and a net run rate of +0.789.

Perth Scorchers have won both their games in the Big Bash League 2021/22 so far and are second in the table. Colin Munro arrived to the party for Scorchers in their most recent game against Adelaide Strikers. The experience opener scored 114 not out off 73 deliveries to give his team the advantage going into the innings break. Scorchers’ bowling unit led by Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff suffocated the opposition and Adelaide Strikers were cleaned up quite easily.

Perth Scorchers hold the historical advantage going into this fixture of BBL 2021/22. They’ve won nine games compared to Hobart Hurricanes’ six victories. Scorchers have also been more successful in recent games.

However, Riley Meredith and Mitch Owen are out of the contest due to injury.

They’ve managed to bowl out the opposition and defend their totals in both their matches so far. The strength of the bowling unit was tested in their recent game in Sydney and the likes of Matthew Kelly, Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye and Ashton Agar were on top of their game.
