Whoever wins this clash moves up to second place. In its current form, Paul Krishnamurty says scorchers will conquer the world of batting …
« Scorchers look like they’re all going to blow it away … they have the most thrifty bowling cast and outstanding Performance with the ball. «
Here is another critical battle in the race for the play-offs. Only one point separates Scorchers and Hurricanes – the difference between the second and the sixth. Whoever wins is a clear second.
Both achieve good wins. Perth beat Heat for the sixth time in seven games. Note that the loss came to defending champions and runaway front runners Sydney Sixers. The margin of all six wins was broad.
The Hurricanes win, which chased a massive 178 against Thunder, was less predictable and much needed. They had previously lost three straight away, including a one-sided encounter against today’s opponents.
At the end of this incredible, unforgettable test series, Hurricanes welcome Matthew Wade and Tim Paine back to the squad. If they play – as I write, there is not much talk of suggestions today either – that would be a huge bonus. On the other hand, James Faulkner is out for the season.
Hobart could use Wade badly to reform a formidable opening partnership with D’Arcy Short. The Thunder chase was particularly impressive as both openers were cheaply lost. Once again, Ben McDermott was superb alongside the ever-reliable Dawid Malan. Strengthen yourself above and this will be a very strong cast.
It probably has to be here. Scorchers look like they’re all sweeping away now. Roy, Livingstone and Munro’s top three are in great shape – the latter pair has 31 sixes between them.
Scorchers also offer the most economical bowling line-up and outstanding performance with the ball. Jhye Richardson remains firmly on the path to the Golden Arm and has thrown the most scoring balls of all. Mitchell Marsh returns to the roster.
Evidence from two games this week at Marvel Stadium supports historical trends. Par is 155-160. Perth only recorded the fourth total of 170 plus in 18 first innings here and it turned out to be comfortable enough.
The second side leads to 10-8 during this time, which does not imply any apparent bias. With that in mind, I’m more confident of making a pre-game prediction.
Scorchers must be given preference. Supporting them for that reason paid off last time around and frankly 1.845 / 6 is perfectly fair given their recent form. Hurricanes are respected in all departments but look inferior. That was confirmed in their most recent encounter.
It will likely take more than 165 runs to win here – a huge challenge against this Scorchers attack. Again, I apply my « 25% rule » on the basis that most teams will churn to that extent in most T20 games. Planned here is to place an order to have them up and running at 2.35 / 4.
Interestingly, a non-opener is popular with both parties. Brian McDermott earned the day on 11/4. For hurricanes. Will Jacks is interesting on 5/1 after recently opening but last retired with a duck and could be relegated if Wade returns.
Similarly, Colin Munro tops the Scorchers list at 13 / 5, which makes sense since he’s their top scorer throughout the season. I would be very cautious about taking chances this short as Roy or Livingston could close the market before it even comes out to hit.
The second test between Sri Lanka and England begins on Friday as well as a # BBL10 double headed ball . So before the action, get the views of @cricketbetting @sampsoncollins and @paulmotty
We discussed this match and made a selection in the latest edition of Cricket … Only Bettor. Ed Hawkins firmly believes that Ashton Turner is overpriced and hard to contest here at 14/1. The top three were excellent but can’t win every time.
