This is going to be quite an interesting clash, as both the teams are neck to neck as per their overall statistics against each other. Though just considering the recent five encounters, Hobart Hurricanes look better on paper, but they are weakened after Short's departure, who was the key contributor for Hurricanes as far as batting was concerned.
Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, have many batsmen like Livingstone, Inglis, Marsh, and Bancroft to depend on. The stage is perfectly set for the Scorchers to take the revenge of their previous loss.
