SCO vs HUR Preview:
The Perth Scorchers are on a roll in the BBL with four successive wins. Their batsmen have finally found consistency with Colin Munro leading the way with three fifties.
Besides, Jhye Richardson currently tops the wicket-takers’ charts. Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye too have chipped in. With a good balance in the side, the Scorchers would fancy another win in front of their home crowd although it won’t be easy.
Their opponents, Hobart Hurricanes are back in action after a relatively long rest. The Hurricanes are on course for a playoff spot with five wins in nine games. Their bowling attack has been in good form and Riley Meredith’s return will bolster it further.
However, they would want star opener D’Arcy Short to fire. With Ben McDermott and Dawid Malan looking in decent touch, the Hurricanes should prove to be a handful for the home side.
There isn’t much to separate the two sides although the form and home conditions might play into the Scorchers’ hands. Nevertheless, the Hurricanes are more than capable of taking the attack to Turner and Co, which makes this contest a must-watch affair in the BBL.
