ADS vs PER Team Previews

Adelaide Strikers

It’s now or never for the Strikers, as they may have fourth place but are tied on 10 points with the Hurricanes and Thunder. Losing three games in a row is never a good look, especially when one of those was a massive loss to the Sixers by 59 runs (including a Steve Smith century).

The Strikers will have the toughest test against the Scorchers and they are probably not the opponent they’d like at the moment. Fast bowler Peter Siddle will be out injured for a while, which means bowlers Wes Agar (17 wickets) and Henry Thornton (16) will have to step up their game.

Batting shouldn’t be a problem with Matt Short in the line-up, as he’s the league’s top scorer (458 with 42 fours and 18 sixes) and simply playing out of his mind. Short has taken over the mantle of “Best Batter” now that Chris Lynn has gone. Adam Hose has been pretty reliable with 271, but is failing to score anything big – he’s failed to reach past 40 in his past six games.

Captain Travis Head has been unspectacular in his return, scoring just six runs in two games, but Alex Carey was fantastic with a half-century against Sydney. If the Strikers can have all their batters having a great game at once, then they can certainly defeat Perth.

Adelaide Strikers Playing 11

Matt Short, Travis Head, Alex Carey, Adam Hose, Colin de Grandhomme, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen, Benjamin Manenti, Cameron Boyce, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle.

Perth Scorchers

Perth may have stumbled with a loss to the Sixers, but they brought everything back around with a statement victory over Hobart with 15 balls remaining. Things looked a bit shaky when Eskinazi went for a duck and Bancroft was dismissed, but there was really never worry to be had.

Hardie (90*) and Inglis (53) steadied the ship and brought home success to Perth, but more than that, the team proved to the rest of the BBL that they’re the ones to beat for the trophy. Inglis has 377 total runs and Hardie is next with 369, so this is easily the best batting duo in the league.

It was also an impressive bowling effort from the Scorchers, as both Andrew Tye (22 total wickets) and Lance Morris destroyed the Hurricanes’ batters. Tye went 2/30, but Morris was the best on the day with 2/21. Perth is nearly unbeatable if Morris continues to bowl this well.

Cameron Bancroft, Stephen Eskinazi, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, Ashton Turner, Nick Hobson, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, David Payne, Peter Hatzoglou, Lance Morris.

ADS vs PER Toss Prediction

Any team winning the toss should try to bat first and secure an impressive total while the pitch is at its best for batting.

Pitch and Conditions

Many people regard Adelaide Oval as a solid batting pitch, as it is somewhat flatter than others and this helps the batsmen predict the ball much more. The pitch often sees matches with very high-scoring games.

ADS vs PER Betting Tips

These two teams match up well against each other historically, as Perth has only an 11-10 advantage in the record. It really feels hard to bet against the Scorchers, as they have such amazing talent throughout the entire squad.

However, the odds for Adelaide to win are better than expected and it would be a more enticing bet than choosing the safer option with Perth. Having Short, Carey, and Agar all playing in form makes us trust Adelaide and they can pick up the victory on their home pitch.

Plus, the Strikers should play better after three straight losses and the threat of dropping to fifth place.

Bet on the Strikers to win.
