Who will win today’s match Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Thunder, 36th Match BBL 2021/22??

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.
