Despite being the most successful side in the BBL, Perth Scorchers are enduring a difficult start to life this time around. With two games already played, they are winless and placed seventh on the log. Expect a convincing display from Turner’s charges come kickoff in Canberra.Bet Now!
As the top order failed to deliver, all the responsibilities fell on the shoulders of the batsmen in the lower middle order – one that they handled brilliantly. Their great play helped them snatch victory right from the jaws of defeat.
That said, there are reservations about ST’s quality on the bowling front. The likes of Nathan McAndrew, Sams and Tanveer Sangha are not well-experienced in the game to lead this side. As such, Ferguson will hope the duo of Green and Jonathan Cook will put in a great shift.
However, there is every chance that the Scorchers will rise from their early season ruins to challenge for a top-five finish. Though they were totally shambolic against MR, Turner must have taken positives from their magnificent batting abilities.
With Jason Ray set for his first game of the campaign, he will be looking to form an effective partnership with Colin Munro in the top-order. Also, Joe Clark will be buzzing after playing out a wonderful game last time out. Jhye Richardson and Aaron Hardie should marshal the bowling unit well.
Meanwhile, while we are yet to see Perth Scorchers come into full force, there is no doubting their overall quality. It is only a matter of time before Turner’s men regain their footing, and we are backing them to begin their resurgence with victory in this encounter.
