Perth Scorchers v Sydney Thunder – Match Preview

The Thunder have won four of the last five head-to-head meetings with the Scorchers. The Sydney team are higher in the BBL standings, too, but Perth are full of confidence after beating the Sixers earlier this week.

Where: Perth Stadium

When: Saturday, 9 January 2021

Start time: 02:45 IST (08:15 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Plenty of batsmen got in, but failed to convert during Tuesday’s match between Perth and the Sixers – and again on Wednesday when the Thunder beat the Hurricanes. If the same pitch is used, it might be a bit slower. The hosts could go with a seam-heavy bowling attack again.

Weather conditions: There is a slight chance of rain forecast in Perth on Saturday, but probably not enough to really limit play. If the match is shortened, this could suit the team chasing an adjusted target.

Make Nair Your Top Thunder Bowler

Arun Nair played his first match of the BBL 2020-21 earlier this week. He played well under pressure, especially after being asked to open the bowling.

He could again be one of three key spinners in the Thunder XI. He’s looking in better form than Chris Green or Fawad Ahmed. Betting on Nair to be the top Sydney bowler at 6.0 with 22Bet could yield great value.

Bet on Sydney to Score the Most Runs in the Powerplay

This match will probably see Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone at the top of the Perth order and Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja open the batting for Sydney. The men in at third position are just as good.

Hales and Khawaja complement each other well in partnership and. With Callum Ferguson set to bat at three, the Thunder looked the best set to score more runs in the first six overs than Perth.

Bet on this to happen at 2.0 with 1xBet. They have Perth priced at 1.8 in the same market, which is also available as a two way.

Back  Tye as the Top Scorchers Bowler

Andrew Tye was arguably underused by the Kings XI Punjab in the recent Indian Premier League. He is a key asset in Perth’s first-choice XI, though.

His characteristic slower balls work really well in challenging conditions. He took a four-for against the Sixers recently. Bet on him to be the top bowler for Perth at 4.32 with 22Bet.
