SCO vs HUR – BBL – Team Previews
The Perth Scorchers are having another outstanding BBL season. They now have eight victories and a net run rate of +1.107, which puts them at the top of the point standings. Due to their identical one-point point differentials, the Scorchers and Sydney Sixers are in a close race.
Both openers Cameron Bancroft and Stephen Eskinazi have lived up to the expectations despite Faf du Plessis withdrawing from the tournament in the middle and Adam Lyth being benched. Eskinazi has 118 runs in 4 games, whilst Cameroon has 186 runs in 6 innings with two half-centuries.
With 51 wickets between them, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, and Jhye Richardson are leading the pace attack for the Scorchers. With 20 wickets at an economy rate of 7.79, Andrew Tye presently holds the top spot on the list of most wickets taken. The spin attack will be led by leg spinner Peter Hatzoglou. Hatzoglou’s two wickets against Sydney Sixers were crucial, as they helped his team win.
The Hobart Hurricanes are coming off of two straight victories in the competition. They have five victories and a net run rate of -0.176, which puts them in fifth place right now. The fact that they are facing the Scorchers after two straight victories will greatly improve the team’s confidence.
The addition of Caleb Jewell and, more recently, Zack Crawley has helped the Hurricanes at the top of the order. Jewell has a strike rate of 162.58 and has allowed 239 runs in 7 innings. He has three half-centuries as well. We think he is the best batter. Matthew Wade is hitting well in the middle beside Tim David.
The bowling assault will be led by Peter Dooley, Riley Meredith, and Nathan Ellis. The Hurricanes’ last two victories were mostly the result of Nathan Ellis. Ellis claimed two wickets in the game against the Melbourne Stars, allowing just 12 runs in four overs, and four wickets in the match against the Sydney Thunder, including a Hat-trick.
