Stats show that Perth Scorchers have only won one game out of five but they have played a bit better in the last two matches.

While they won their second last match, they fell short by just one run in their last encounter against Sydney Thunder. Similarly, Brisbane Heat have not had a great BBL either. They are still searching for their first win, having lost all of their three matches.

Mitchell Marsh will return to lead Perth Scorchers as he has been released from the Australian Test squad. He is expected to replace David Willey. Cameron Bancroft is also back after serving his suspension term and would look to prove his mettle again. Michael Klinger has not been in the best of forms despite scoring a couple of 20s.

The same is true for most Perth Scorchers' batsmen such as Ashton turner and Hilton Cartwright who have largely been disappointing.

Till now their bowling, if that is any compensation, has been on the money. Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson have been there best bets.

Batting is also a worry for Brisbane Heat. Although Chris Lynn has started firing with knocks of 33, 29 and an explosive 84 in the last match, he has not received much support from Max Bryant or Brendon McCullum.

Like the Perth Scorchers, their bowling has been quite decent with Mujib Ur Rahman and James Pattinson leading the way.


Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.


Perth Scorchers- Mitchell Marsh, Cameron Bancroft, David Willey, Ashton Turner, Hilton Cartwright, Ashton Agar, William Bosisto, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff

Brisbane Heat- Brendon McCullum, Max Bryant, Chris Lynn, Joe Burns, Alex Ross, Ben Cutting, Jimmy Peirson, James Pattinson, Josh Lalor, Mitchell Swepson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
