Melbourne Stars will face off against the Perth Scorchers in the 50th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21. It will be a competition between two teams ready to go and looking to impress yet again in the tenth edition of the BBL. They will both want to push for a win and it will surely be a tough fight.
A game that will potentially decide who follows Sydney Sixers into the top four, will see Melbourne Stars go against a strong looking Perth Scorchers. After running on a win flush, Stoinis and company stumbled against the Renegades on Wednesday. But it’s a new day and the middle order still looks possibly the best in this Cricket league, Adam Zampa is still as neat as possible and the Maxwell-Stoinis duo have shown fair displays. However, Melbourne would go with one major concern in form of Andre Fletcher’s inconsistency at the top.
The big defeat to Sydney Sixers came off as a shocker but Perth Scorchers have look well recovered and in tasty form getting into the MCG on Saturday. John Inglis’ bat flaunted it’s value when he smacked a half century against Hobart as the pacers carried on with the dominant performance they’ve been showcasing all season. Perth have now won seven off their last eight games and look well-placed to book a spot in the finals. Colin Munro’s 82 against Brisbane helps his case but being complacent at this stage comes with big cost.
Perth Scorchers and the Melbourne Stars have faced each other 17 times. The Renegades have won eight matches and the Heat have won eight matches.
Probably a real 50-50 draw on paper. Both the teams have been doing well and the big names have been clicking regularly. However, to choose one, given their outrageous form and sudden uproar, the momentum favours Perth Scorchers in Saturday’s game. Stars have been a fully equipped side but on the MCG pitch, with quality pacers backing their lineup, Scorchers must like their chances of winning.
