When and where:
Perth Scorchers will take on Hobart Hurricanes in the regular season game of the Big Bash League T20, on (January 18) at Perth Stadium, Perth, Australia.
The Scorchers are the second last placed side in the league and this is their charge to amends things for themselves. The team does possess some serious talent in the roster with the likes of Ashton Turner and all-rounder David Willey. In eight games played they have lost five and won three. There is still some time left for them make a case for themselves to enter the top-four, but it will require them to play at the level the club operated on when the defeated Sydney Sixers in the last outing.
On the other hand, Hobart Hurricanes are the leaders of the Big Bash League and have won 6 out of the seven matches they’ve played They clearly are the best side right now in the competition, and much of that is because the management was able to find the right balance in the starting lineup. This team hardly has any weaknesses, and with D’Arcy Short playing at an elite level, it seems highly unlikely that they will be losing the top spot once the season is over.
The match will begin at 4:00 PM IST.
