Perth Scorchers, under the stewardship of Justin Langer, will be many people’s favourites going in to this year. With David Willey’s wily swing with the new ball, they seem to have the mixture of youthful exuberance and tempered older heads to charter their course to the latter stages again.
Nothing more than a hunch, and not at all evidence based. Mitchell Johnson still had a lot of influence last year, but years don’t tend to be kind to quicks as they get to the business end of their 30s. My advice is that he should take up left arm wrist spin, and take up the impending vacancy Brad Hogg is to create. He and David Willey were very economical last year, and a repeat of that will go a long way towards glory.
