An in-form Perth Scorchers square off against a stuttering Hobart Hurricanes in match number 15 of this Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22.

Perth Scorchers seem to be on a roll and have started this tournament superbly. They are the only unbeaten team in this BBL season and have won all their three games so far. Barring the first game against Brisbane Heat in which they recorded a six-run win, the other two wins were quite comprehensive. The three-time BBL champions racked up scores in excess of 180 and won by 45+ runs.

On the other hand, Hobart Hurricanes have two losses and a win from the three games so far. They fell 14 runs short in their chase of 145 in the first game against defending champions Sydney Sixers before they beat the same side by 44 runs (D/L method). However, they couldn’t build on that win as they slumped as Perth Scorchers beat them by 53 runs.

Who will win today’s match Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes, 15th Match BBL 2021/22?

Perth Scorchers missed a couple of regular players in the first couple of games as they were out on Australia ‘A’ duty. But despite that, the three-time champions and the finalists of the 2020-21 season managed to win. After the inclusion of the likes of Mitchell Marsh and Josh Inglis along with the addition of left-arm fast bowler Tymal Mills, the Perth Scorchers line-up looks even better.

Their batting has fired. Colin Munro and Mitchell Marsh have got hundreds already in this tournament while the likes of Kurtis Patterson, Cameron Bancroft and Laurie Evans have made vital contributions. The bowling has fired in unison as well. The pace battery has been amongst the wickets while the spin twins of Ashton Agar and Peter Hatzoglou have been excellent as well.

On the other hand, the only game that Hobart Hurricanes won was when their openers (Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short) fired. In fact, the left-handed duo are the only batters to have got half-centuries in this BBL so far. The other batters haven’t really stepped up. There have been starts but none of them have converted it into big scores. The bowling has not shown any sort of consistency either.

Thus, Perth Scorchers are going to start as favourites once again.
