MLS vs PER Team Previews

Melbourne Stars

The Melbourne Stars were the bottom-ranked team last season. Their latest campaign hasn’t been off to a good start either as they lost to Brisbane Heat on the opening night. As they face the defending champions, the Stars have a tough job ahead of them.

Despite having a strong batting line-up, the Stars were unable to take advantage as they lost out to Brisbane by a massive margin of 108 runs. Tom Rogers and Sam Harper are likely to open the batting for them and will look to give the team a stable start.

There are some quality batsmen in the middle order, including Joe Burns, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. With neither of them being a part of the upcoming Test match against Pakistan, they will be available for this match. The Stars are also home to all-rounders Hilton Cartwright and Liam Dawson, both of whom can strike some lusty blows.

It was a very poor bowling effort from the team on the opening night as they gave away over 200 runs. The seam attack consisting of Joel Paris, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Olly Stone will look to get some early wickets, while Usama Mir and Liam Dawson will form the spin department.

Thomas Fraser Rogers, Sam Harper, Beau Webster, Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright, Nick Larkin, Jonathan Merlo, Liam Dawson, Usama Mir, Joel Paris, Haris Rauf.

Perth Scorchers

The Perth Scorchers’ opening fixture was called off due to unsafe playing conditions and as a result, they were forced to share points with the Melbourne Renegades.

The Scorchers have been the most consistent team in the BBL, lifting the title for a record 5 times. As they have retained most of their core players, the team will be hoping to put up another good performance. Cooper Connolly, whose heroics with the bat helped the Scorchers win BBL 12, is likely to be promoted to the opening slot alongside Stevie Eskinazi.

The middle order consists of Aaron Hardie, who was the leading run-scorer of the last season, Josh Inglis, Ashton Turner, Nick Hobson, and Laurie Evans. The Perth Scorchers have a strong seam attack at their disposal as Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, and Jason Behrendorff have plenty of experience in the format.

Hamish McKenzie is likely to be the specialist spinner on the team.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the MCG is well-balanced, providing for an even contest between the bat and the ball. The seamers will get some help early on as the ball swings and seams a bit. However, as the ball gets older, it becomes easier for the batsmen to play their shots.

A score of between 140-150 is a par score on this surface.

There is a forecast for rain and thunderstorms throughout the day which may lead to delays or interruptions. 


MLS vs PER Betting Tips

Looking at the on-paper strengths and weaknesses, we feel that the Perth Scorchers are the stronger team and are likely to end up on top. The core of their team is well-settled and they consistently seem to be able to replace any missing internatiional players with quality domestic options.

Bet on the Perth Scorchers to win.

    Perth Scorchers (1.78)


The Perth Scorchers are likely to start their batting with Stevie Eskinazi and Cooper Connelly. Both of them are quality batsmen who are capable of playing a big inning. On the other hand, the Stars’ opening pair is likely to struggle against the quality seam attack of their opponents.

    Over 24.5 (1.77)


As both teams have some hard hitters of the ball, we are likely to see plenty of boundaries being scored. Also, the MCG pitch is markedly improved and offers a lot more for the batters to enjoy.

  1. Dafabet


    Josh Inglis to score over 20.5 runs



Inglis was in good form during the recent ODI World Cup. He is a consistent performer in the BBL too and we are likely to see him play a good inning in this match.
