The competition has intensified in the Big Bash League 2019-20 and the season has entered an important phase where the points table is taking shape. In the 24th game of the season hosts, Perth Scorchers would be up against the Hobart Hurricanes. Both sides have managed two wins from their five games.
The Scorchers come into the game after an impressive win against Brisbane Heat while the Hurricanes went down against the same side in their last game. The Hurricanes have a poor record against the Scorchers at Perth and with the poor form they are in at the moment the side will need to play exceptionally well to win the next game.
The Scorchers who have a good record playing at home will be looking to hold on to their home fort in what is an extremely important game for the two sides with respect to their chances of going into the playoffs.

Mitchell Marsh would be happy with the win his side registered in the last game against the Brisbane Heat. It was a good show by their bowlers that earned them the 40 run victory. Playing at home the side would be looking to make good use of the home advantage and crowd support against the Hurricanes in the next game.
Openers Liam Livingstone and Josh Inglis have done well in the season and going into the next game they would hope to provide the side with a good start. Cameron Bancroft is in good form at the moment. It is down the order that the sides have struggled. Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Turner and Ashton Agar haven’t played to their potential so far which they shall look to do well in the next game.
Their bowlers did a brilliant job in the last game where Jhye Richardson, Matthew Kelly and Ashton Agar bowled extremely tight lines. The kind of economy rate they maintained would surely add to the confidence of the side. Fawad Ahmed also did well and the side will hope to see tighter lines from Chris Jordan as they play the next game.

With another ordinary performance against Brisbane Heat Ben McDermott’s side is now looking in deep trouble. They performed ordinarily with the bat and the ball to lose the last game by 31 runs. The next one would be very important as a loss can very well draw curtains on their dreams of making it to the playoffs.
McDermott will need to inspire his men against Scorchers in the latter’s home ground. The batsmen have to convert their starts into big scores and build partnerships which they failed to do in the last game. The top 5 comprising of D’Arcy Short, Caleb Jewell, McDermott, David Miller and George Bailey got starts in the last game but failed to convert them. They have good lower order in Simon Milenko, James Faulkner and Nathan Ellis and the skipper will expect these guys to do the hitting.
Bowlers had a bad day at the office in the last game and shall have to focus on cutting down on loose deliveries. James Faulkner and Riley Meredith have to pick early wickets with the new ball. They have good variety in Clive Rose, D’Arcy Short, Qais Ahmad and Nathan Ellis and they will have to focus on preventing the opposition from getting away.

It will be clear sky over Perth on January 05 and the weather would be pleasant one on the evening of the game. The pitch would be a challenging one to bat on as well as have seen in the two games played here so far where fast bowlers have done well. Any score of over 160 runs would be a fighting total on this surface.
Perth Stadium, Perth has been a competitive T20 venue where the batsmen and bowlers have equal opportunity. The fast paced pitch along with the bounce it offers makes it a good venue for the bowlers while batsmen can play their shots easily. This hasn’t been the best hunting ground for the spinners in the past.
We have seen two low scoring encounters on this surface so far in the season where batsmen have struggled a bit. There is assistance for the bowlers at the start of the game. The captain winning the toss would want to exploit this opportunity by inviting the opposition into bat in the game.
It will be a do or die game for both sides. With two wins each after five games, the two sides have struggled for form in the season.
Hobart Hurricanes are coming into this game after suffering a big defeat in their last game and this would surely have hurt their confidence.
As for the Perth Scorchers, they won their last game and would be confident playing in front of their home crowd and this would make the favorites to win the game.
