It will be interesting to see if Brisbane Heat could continue the momentum or would the Scorchers break it.

After handing Hurricanes their second defeat of the season, Brisbane Heat have entered into the first half of the points table and are currently at the 3rd spot with 8 points behind Sydney Sixers at 2nd spot with 12 points.
Brisbane Heat started the season poorly, losing their three of the first four matches against Sydney Thunder, Melbourne Stars, and Perth Scorchers. In all these games Brisbane Heat failed to chase not so tall targets and was folded under 150. A solitary win against Sydney Sixers where they score 209 batting first was the only shining light so far. However, the complexion of the team changed completely in the last 3 games which they won comfortably against the Hurricanes, twice, and the Thunders.
Chris Lynn has scored 307 runs at the strike rate of 156 in the last 10 matches. Whereas Matt Renshaw (270 runs in the 10 matches) has been their prime batsman. Despite being slightly uneconomical, Josh Lalor, with 17 wickets in the last 10 matches, would lead the bowling attack.
Key Players - Chris Lynn, Matt Renshaw, Josh Lalor
Joel Paris, Chris Jordan, Timothy David, Jhye Richardson, SM Whiteman, Fawad Ahmed, Liam Livingstone, Cameron Green, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, CT Bancroft
Perth Scorchers are following a similar pattern as that of Brisbane Heat this season. However, they have lost one more game than the Heats which has put them at the 6th spot with 6 points on the board in the 7 matches played in this season so far.
Like Brisbane Heat, Perth Scorchers too lost 3 of the first 4 games they played in this season. A couple of them against Sydney Sixers and one against Adelaide Strikers. The win against the Renegades by 11 runs was the only bright spot until then. However, in the last 3 games, they got their act together to register a couple of wins against Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Renegades. It will be interesting to see if they can break Heat’s 3-match winning streak.
The Captain and Wicketkeeper pair of Mitchell Marsh (286 Runs in the last 10 Matches) and Josh Inglis (264 Runs in the last 10 Matches) are the batting backbone of Perth Scorchers. Matthew Kelly (9 wickets in 8 matches) and Fawad Ahmed (8 wickets in 7 matches) would lead the bowling with not so good numbers.
Key Players - Cameron Bancroft, Mitchell Marsh, Liam Livingstone

It will be a sunny and warm day at Perth on Saturday – 11th Jan 2020 when the match will be played. The temperature would rise as high as 34°c during the day while the nighttime minimum temperature is expected to be around 20°c. A hot day means a high scoring contest in on the cards here on Saturday.
The venue for the match is Perth Stadium, Perth.
The Perth Stadium at Perth is a relatively new venue. Only 1 T20 international has been played here before between Australia and Pakistan which the Aussies won comfortably. Three matches have been played here in this season and all of them have been won by the teams batting first.
The team winning the toss should Bat first here.
Brisbane Heat has managed to break into the top half of the points table with some good show in the last three matches. The Scorchers are not too behind in terms of points and they too have been on the winning more often recently. However, the Brisbane Heat looks a more settled and confident side and their bowling is superior to that of the Scorchers.
Thus, we predict 4th win in a row for Brisbane Heat in a Saturday clash against Perth Scorchers.
Brisbane Heat to win!
