Perth Scorchers set to open their campaign for sixth season of Big Bash League against Adelaide Strikers on Friday (23 December). They ended their last season with loss in semifinal against Melbourne Stars. Meanwhile, Adelaide Strikers have already lost one game of current season and they will look to make comeback.
Perth Scorchers will be keen to make a positive start and continue their good work from last season. Sam Whiteman, wicket-keeper batsman is good addition into the side who is in good form, he is considered as X-factor for the home team. All-rounder Mitch Marsh has re-gained top form over the past fortnight with the Scorchers.
On the other hand, Adelaide Strikers had high scoring affairs with Brisbane Heat in last match which they lost by just 10 runs. Though they lost, but players did well to chase the target, unfortunate not to get over the line.
Ben Dunk (85 runs of 43 balls) blistering inning and Jake Weatherald’s entertaining inning helped Strikers post 133 runs partnership for first wicket. Strikers needed 17 off last over but Mark Steketee did well to defend despite skipper Brad Hodge and Chris Jordan in the middle.
Adelaide Strikers hold a 5-4 overall record against the Scorchers, with Adelaide winning the past two encounters. The visitors have also won the past two matches.
