- Perth Scorchers have also not lost a game in the Big Bash League in their last four matches.
- The defending champion enjoys clear domination over the Heat as they have won the last five games against them
In a bid to lift the illustrious Big Bash League trophy for the second time on the trot, Perth Scorchers will cross swords with Brisbane Heat. The much-hyped final will be played at the Perth Stadium on Saturday. This can be the fifth title for the defending champions as they have already taken the trophy home an impressive four times in 11 seasons. However, Brisbane Heat won the title only once that too during the second season.
Meanwhile, it might surprise you that the last time when Heat booked the trophy in 2013, they defeated the likes of Perth Scorchers only in the final. Playing at the WACA Ground in Perth, Heat recorded a victory by 34 runs. The team will now have a chance to recreate history and win the trophy for the second time.
The road to the final has been troublesome for Jimmy Peirson’s side, to say the least. They hampered their qualification chances after winning only one of their first five games. Overall, the team dished out a disappointing performance in the league round with six wins and seven losses. However, finishing fifth place gave them a chance at redemption.
In the knockout phase, Brisbane are on a roll with three wins on the trot. The team defeated the likes of Sydney Thunder, Melbourne Renegades, and Sydney Sixers to confirm a final berth. All three games saw the team excelling in all three departments, be it batting, bowling, or fielding.
On the other hand, Perth Scorchers did not break any sweat while qualifying for the final. With 11 wins and three losses, the team finished at the top of the BBL 12 table. They followed it up with an easy win against Sydney Sixers by seven wickets in the first semi-final.
Though it is tough to pick sides for the glorious final competition, we are sure that both teams are going to provide the fans with the utmost entertainment on Sunday.
