Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers 6th Match Preview
Perth Scorchers Team Preview
Perth Scorchers will start their campaign after the start of four days of Big Bash League. They will play with their near full side with Shaun Marsh, Nathan Coulter Nile and Adam Voges set to play for them. They had the least alterations in their squad with only Yasir Arafat out of the squad and England’s David Willey coming in for him. Apart from that the squad is the same. Interestingly, the 44 year old chinaman Brad Hogg is still part of the squad.
Michael Klinger and Carberry were the highest scorer for them last time around with 326 and 266 runs in last edition for them. The 13-man squad announced for the game is:
Squad: Adam Voges (c), Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Michael Carberry, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Brad Hogg, Michael Klinger, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Joel Paris, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, David Willey.
Adelaide Strikers Team Preview
They have made an amazing start to their campaign with a 19-run victory over Melbourne Stars, arguably the best side of the tournament. However, they were in dire situation once 64-4 in the tenth over but captain, Brad Hodge, and Alex Ross saved the day for their team as they scored 123 in the last ten.
But still for their batting to perform decently they would need Jayawardena to step up or may be open with him. Their batting depth is still a concern for them. 13-man squad for the game announced is
Squad: 1. Hodge (c) 2. Dean 3. Head 4. Holland 5. Jayawardena 6. Kingston 7. Laughlin 8. Ludeman 9. Neser 10. Rashid 11. Richardson 12. Ross 13. Simmons
