PER vs ADS Match Prediction - Dec 26, 2022

The Adelaide Strikers will be looking to strengthen their position at the top of the points table as they take on the defending champions, the Perth Scorchers in a Boxing Day fixture.

According to the odds being offered by most cricket betting sites, the home team holds a slight edge here. But the Strikers, who have started the season on a great note will not let them have it easy. 


PER vs ADS Team Previews

Perth Scorchers

The Scorchers aren’t off to the best of starts that they would have hoped for as they have lost one match in the 3 games that they have played so far. Nevertheless, these are early days in the tournament and the team has plenty of time to make up speed. They are currently 3rd on the points table and a win here will take them within striking distance of the top spot.

The addition of Faf du Plessis at the top of the order seems to be yielding desired results, as Faf has been in good form. He has already scored a half-century and is striking at an incredible strike rate of 186.88. Aaron Hardie has given a decent all-round contribution, scoring 97 runs and picking up 2 wickets. Josh Inglis has been striking the ball pretty well and has already hit 2 half-centuries and scored 149 runs.

However, batsmen like Ashton Turner, Nick Hobson, and Adam Lyth have been below par till now. The bowling has been pretty consistent, with Jhye Richardson picking up 8 wickets so far. Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye have chipped in too, picking up 6 and 5 wickets respectively.

Adelaide Strikers

Led by Chris Lynn, the Adelaide Strikers have hardly put a foot wrong so far this season. They were off to a perfect start, winning each of their first 3 matches by a healthy margin. However, they faced their first defeat of the season in their last outing, losing out to the Brisbane Heat close encounter.

The bowling effort has been the highlight of the Strikers' performance this season. In their second match, the Strikers bowled out the Sydney Thunder with just 15 runs on the board, which is a record-low score for any team in the T20 format.

Henry Thornton returned from that match with incredible figures of 5 wickets for just 3 runs, while Wes Agar came back with 4 for 6. Thornton is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 12 wickets against his name, while Wes Agar has 7. Matthew Short and Chris Lynn have been superb for the Strikers at the top of the order, scoring 161 and 117 runs respectively.

However, the batting around them has been pretty average. Rashid Khan and Colin de Grandhomme have added all-round abilities to the squad but both have failed to have any significant impact so far. With Travis Head and Alex Carey set to join the squad later on in the season, the Strikers will be hoping to finish the League stage in top-2.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Optus Stadium is pretty flat and is excellent to bat on. The bounce on offer is even and pretty consistent, allowing the batsmen to play their natural game. The quicker bowlers will find some assistance, especially early on in the game, as the conditions are quite windy here.

The average first innings score here is around 140, but teams batting first will be looking to get closer to 170 here. The sky will be pretty cloudy on Monday but there is hardly any chance of rain. The humidity will be around 60% and gusts of wind will reach up to 34 km/h. 


PER vs ADS Betting Tips

Both teams have plenty of quality in their squads and have been performing pretty well so far. With such an even form from both teams, this is a difficult match to call. However, we are going to back the home team for this one. The Strikers’ only defeat this season have come away from home, while Perth’s record at home has been pretty solid.

The all-rounders for the Strikers are yet to come up with the required goods and that could very well be the deciding factor for this match.

Bet on the Perth Scorchers to win.

    Adelaide Strikers’ Top Bowler

    Henry Thornton (4.25)


Thornton has easily been the best bowler for the Strikers this season. His figures of 5/3 against the Sixers are one of the best in the history of BBL. He has already picked up a 5-wicket and a 4-wicket haul this season and is likely to be quite effective on the bouncy pitch at Perth. We are therefore backing him to be the top wicket-taker for the Strikers.
