It is on the back of the bowling that Perth Scorchers have been so successful. As many as four bowlers have picked up more than 10 wickets in this tournament – Andrew Tye (18), Tymal Mills (12), Ashton Agar (11) and Jason Behrendorff (10) while two other bowlers (Matthew Kelly and Peter Hatzoglou) have shared 17 wickets between them. Colin Munro and Kurtis Patterson have led the charge with the bat and they’ve covered up for Mitchell Marsh’s absence in the last few games.
On the other hand, captain Moises Henriques and wicket-keeper batter Josh Philippe have been the chief run-getters for the defending champions. The duo have managed to accumulated in excess of 260 runs each while striking at 140+. James Vince has been the big disappointment while Dan Christian has chipped in with useful runs in the middle-order. Left-arm seamer Hayden Kerr and Sean Abbott have been the major wicket-takers for Sydney Sixers. The other bowlers have been inconsistent and constantly in and out of the side due to various reasons.
Sean Abbott’s all-round brilliance and Josh Philippe’s consistency with the bat makes them top picks to be game-changers. For Perth Scorchers, it could be Ashton Agar and Colin Munro who could be at the top of that list.
Andrew Tye is at the top of the wicket charts this season. He has returned with 18 scalps at an average of 14.05 and has an economy rate of 7.55. Hayden Kerr is the leading wicket-taker for Sydney Sixers – 15 wickets at an average of 9.73 and an economy rate of 6.95.
Josh Philippe might be one of the contenders while Colin Munro could also be an option. Andrew Tye and Hayden Kerr may also be in contention.
Josh Philippe has been in top form and has aggregated 295 runs while striking at 147.50. Moreover, he has a good record against Perth Scorchers – 255 runs at an average of 42.50 and a strike-rate of 160.38.
Colin Munro is the second-highest run-getter this BBL season. The left-hander has amassed 353 runs at an average of 50.42 and a strike-rate of 133.71.
