PER vs SYD Match Preview

Stevie Eskinazi and Sam Whiteman are expected to be the opening batsmen for the Scorchers in this match. Despite their recent lack of form, they are talented players who will aim to provide a strong start for the team. The middle-order batting has been a standout for the Scorchers.

Aaron Hardie has been the top run-scorer with 296 runs and has received great support from Laurie Evans and Josh Inglis. In the last game, Nick Hobson also displayed excellent form, playing a crucial cameo to lead his team to victory against the Brisbane Heat.

The seamers have been equally impressive with the new ball and in the death overs. Lance Morris leads the wicket-taking charts with 13 wickets and is well backed by Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff.

However, the spin attack appears to be a weak point as Cooper Connolly and Ashton Agar have only managed to pick up a total of 10 wickets between them.

James Vince and Josh Philippe have formed a formidable opening partnership, consistently providing strong starts for the Sydney Sixers. Notably, Vince has emerged as the top run-scorer for the team this season. In a similar vein, Daniel Hughes and Jordan Silk have displayed consistency in the middle order, and it is imperative for one of them to deliver a substantial innings in this crucial match.

However, the lower order batting has been lackluster. Moises Henriques and Jack Edwards have struggled to make significant contributions with the bat, failing to provide a strong finish for the team. On a positive note, Edwards has showcased his bowling prowess and currently shares the title of highest wicket-taker with Ben Dwarshuis.

Sean Abbott has been a valuable asset, claiming 6 wickets, while Steve O'Keefe has also made a commendable impact with 6 wickets to his name.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Perth is excellent to bat on. There is plenty of pace and bounce on offer, allowing the batsmen to play their shots and score some brisk runs. That said, the quicker bowlers who bowl a good line and length will be rewarded. The pitch does get a bit two-paced as the match progresses and gets difficult to bat on. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 180.
