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.

Hobart Hurricanes have named a 16-player squad for the match against Perth Scorchers. Scott Boland and Harry Brook have been named in the squad for the first time this season while Ben McDermott has also recovered following his surgery and will be available for selection. However, Riley Meredith and Mitch Owen are out of the contest due to injury.
Mitchell Marsh and Josh Inglish have also returned to Perth Scorchers after completing their Australia A duties. Marsh, especially, will be a fantastic addition given his inspired performance in the T20 World Cup final for Australia.
Batting units of both sides have been in top form recently. Hurricanes amassed over 200 runs in their previous game while Scorchers scored 195 runs in their last fixture. It will be interesting to see which set of power-hitters have a major say in this game.
That is where the bowling unit comes in. Perth Scorchers’ bowlers have also been nothing short of sensational. 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.
The bowling unit could go on to decide the game and Perth Scorchers are expected to have the advantage here.
Mitchell Marsh, Jason Behrendorff and Colin Munro could be decisive for Perth Scorchers in this contest. For Hobart Hurricanes, Matthew Wade and Joel Paris hold the cards.
Jason Behrendorff has been precise with his line and lengths in BBL 2021/22 so far. He has the ability to pick up wickets with the new ball and is also instrumental in the death overs. Behrendorff has picked up four wickets in two games thus far. In 61 Big Bash League matches, he has scalped 74 wickets at an economy rate of 6.87.
Mitchell Marsh and Matthew Wade could end up being the contenders for the Man of the Match award here.
Matthew Wade had a fantastic T20 World Cup with Australia recently and was the hero of the jaw-dropping semi-final win over Pakistan. Wade got back to his best in the reverse fixture against Sydney Sixers. He scored 93 runs at a fantastic strike rate of 202.17! The opening partnership of Wade and Short will be crucial for Hurricanes in this game.
Colin Munro had a decent Big Bash League campaign last season. Playing for the eventual champions Sydney Sixers, he had amassed 443 runs in 15 innings. Munro has roared back to life after a forgettable outing in the first game. He scored 114 runs against Adelaide Strikers at a strike rate of 156.16. Munro’s knock included eight boundaries and six sixes!
