Match Preview

It will be Perth Scorchers' third game of the tournament and second away game. Earlier, they visited Sydney to play against Sixers, where they lost by 8 wickets after their batting debacle. Next at Perth, the batsmen bounced back to power the team’s win over the defending champions Melbourne Renegades.

Adelaide Strikers' first match of the tournament was abandoned due to Bushfire smoke, hence with 1 point in 1 game, they stay at the sixth position. Jake Weatherald, Jonathan Wells and the skipper Carey looked good in the opening game while others need to level up the game as they play against 3 times champions Perth Scorchers.

Teams Preview

Adelaide Strikers

After becoming champions of the 2017-18 season, Adelaide Strikers ended up at the seventh place in BBL 2018-19 seasons with 6 wins and 8 defeats. Inclusion of Philip Salt with the intent of firing up the top-order failed at least in the first match of the series against Sydney Thunder, as he got out on a duck as Adelaide made 161 batting first.  Weatherald (42 runs), Carey (45 runs) and Wells (55 off 32 balls) were the key contributors in the team’s total of 161. While defending the total, Stanlake had removed Khawaja right in the second ball of the first over, but Ferguson's onslaught could not be controlled by AS bowlers.

Then the match was forced to be aborted due to bushfire smoke, but if the match was aborted four balls later, it would have been considered as a full match and Adelaide could have lost it as per D/L method. Though the umpire's decision to call off the match was gracefully received by Sydney Thunder, and Adelaide got 1 lucky point. They must correct their batting and bowling shortcomings before going ahead as every time they may not be that lucky.

In the last 10 games, Jonathan Wells (322 runs) and Jake Weatherald (217 runs) have been the top-scorers for AS. Among the bowlers, Rashid Khan has been the leading wicket-taker with 19 wickets in previous 14 matches, followed by Stanlake (11 wickets in 11 games).

Perth Scorchers

It was destructive knock from the skipper Mitchell Marsh (22 balls 56 runs) that made the difference between the Scorchers and the losing side Melbourne Renegades, as the winning margin was just 11 runs after Scorchers scored 196 batting first. Livingstone (19 balls 29) and Cameron Bancroft (37 balls 51) played anchoring roles which helped Marsh to take-off from there.

Most of their bowlers were expensive, however, Fawad Ahmed (4 overs 22 for 2) and Chris Jordan (4 overs 30 for 2) did not allow Renegades to race away. It was a great come back by the batsmen after the disastrous performance in the first game at Sydney, where PS were bowled out for 131. 

In the last 10 games, Cameron Bancroft (305 runs, strike rate 1324.95) is the top-scorer for the team. Among the bowlers, Chris Jordan (4 wickets in previous two games) and Fawad Ahmed are the key bowlers.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

On the match day, the weather at Adelaide is forecasted to be partly cloudy with the daytime temperature reaching 29°c and nighttime minimum temperature going to dip to 18°c.

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Adelaide Oval.

Toss Prediction

The venue for the match is Adelaide Oval. Out of 5 international T20 matches played here, two times the teams chasing have won, while thrice the teams batting first have won. Australia’s score of 232/2 against Sri Lanka in October is the highest first innings total on this ground while 144 is the lowest total on the ground. It is recommended to bat first after winning the toss.

Winning Prediction

Perth Scorchers have 3 BBL trophies, the maximum by a BBL team, while Adelaide Strikers won the title in the 2017-18 season. However, for both the teams, the previous season was pretty forgettable. Scorchers enter this game after a win over Melbourne Renegades thanks to the power-packed display of their batting unit, while Adelaide is yet to play a full match, though they, fortunately, opened their account due to the abandoned first game. Scorchers’ batting unit looks much stronger compared to Strikers. Head to head statistics of both the teams is in favor of Perth Scorchers.

Thus, we predict that Perth Scorchers will defeat Adelaide Strikers!
