After the loss against Sydney Thunder, Perth Scorchers got back on track with a win over Melbourne Stars. In the absence of the talismanic Mitchell Marsh who has been called up in the Australian Test side for the fourth Test at the SCG, the Perth batters still racked up 180 which shows the depth. The likes of Colin Munro, Kurtis Patterson and the others have made significant scores. The bowling has been excellent and almost every bowler that has played (Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Tymal Mills and Peter Hatzoglou) have played a big part in the success of the Perth Scorchers this season.
On the other hand, Sydney Thunder’s batting has been in good nick. Jason Sangha and Sam Billings have been the dominant ones in that line-up and they’ve done the bulk of the scoring in the last few games. Matthew Gilkes has made decent contributions which includes 93 in the last game against Adelaide Strikers. Ben Cutting has looked good after moving to the top of the order. Meanwhile, Saqib Mahmood and Daniel Sams have been amongst the wickets.
Ashton Agar and Colin Munro could be the game-changers for the Perth Scorchers and Tymal Mills could also be in with a chance. Meanwhile, Sam Billings and Daniel Sams might be the ones to watch out for from the Sydney Thunder line-up.
Andrew Tye is in excellent form with the ball. He has taken 13 wickets from eight games in this BBL season.
Sam Billings’ consistency with the bat and Saqib Mahmood’s wicket-taking ability make them top contenders. Ashton Agar, Colin Munro and Andrew Tye may also be in contention.
Jason Sangha has been in top form with the bat and has accumulated 239 runs in five innings while striking at 142.26.
