Scorchers vs Hurricanes Tips, Preview & Prediction

The Perth Scorchers have had an interesting season so far as they were 0-3 after four matches with a no result also. A number of key inclusions since, namely Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone, have seen the Scorchers turn their form around with four consecutive wins.

During their winning streak, the Scorchers have beaten:

• Adelaide Strikers by 7 wickets
• Melbourne Renegades by 96 runs
• Sydney Sixers by 86 runs
• Sydney Thunder by 17 runs

Standing in their way are the Hobart Hurricanes who have lost their past two against the Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder.

The Scorchers are deserved favourites for the match but this one could be extremely close. The Hurricanes have had their way with the Scorchers recently with four wins from their past five encounters. For that reason, and the fact that the Hurricanes are underdogs, happy to back them to get their season back on track with a vital win.

Hurricanes wicketkeeper Ben McDermott is currently the top-ranked BBL10 player. He has scored 91 and 89 not out to go along with several starts of 46, 31 and 22. Three times this season McDermott has taken exactly two catches. He should be able to score more than 36.5 Player Performance points.

Opening batsman Liam Livingstone is currently having a tough patch with scores of 22, 8, 20, 16 and 3. He will be desperate for a big innings and he may well be able to find his best form and top score for the Scorchers in this match.
