THU vs SCO – BBL – Team Previews
Sydney Thunder is coming to face Perth Scorchers after facing a defeat from Sydney Sixers. It was a low scoring where the Sydney Thunder batter completely failed to score a big number. The bowlers also faced a major debacle and were unable to stop the chase from the opposition.
Sam Whiteman (42 runs) and Alex Ross (34 runs) played sensibly after 3 quick wickets but they failed to score big in the match. Ben Cutting played a quick-fire cameo of 15-ball 26 runs at the end to finish their innings on a high. Sydney Thunder batters are losing grip on their game and this is one concern for the management.
Their bowlers did not have a good day as they gave 134 runs in 16.2 overs. Chris Green and Brendan Doggett bowled economically and picked up 3 wickets between them inside 4 overs but got very little support from other bowlers.
Perth Scorchers are coming to play against the Sydney Thunder after scoring a win against Brisbane Heat. Choosing to bowl first, the bowlers from the Scorchers did a great job and stopped the opposition at a nominal score. The batters gave a good finishing touch to the team and won the game comfortably.
To finish their chase, Josh Inglis (67* runs) and Aaron Hardie (65* runs) combined for an unbeatable 127 runs. Bancroft and Steve Eskinazi both received cheap dismissals during the game. In the forthcoming game, Hardie and Inglis should maintain their recent success.
Their bowlers kept taking wickets regularly restricting the opposition team to 155/6. Jason Behrondoff was the pick of the bowlers with 3/21 in the match. Mathew Kelly took 2 wickets in the last over of the match. Ashton Turner and Ashton Agar bowled their overs economically.
