Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers, 21st Match | Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The Big Bash League 2020 is giving cricket fans plenty to cheer as the final match of 2020 gets underway with the Adelaide Strikers taking on the Perth Scorchers in Adelaide. Adelaide Strikers are currently in third position and looking in good touch while the Perth Scorchers, multiple time champions of the Big Bash League in the past, hare currently in last position with no wins from their four games. In the previous encounter between the two sides, Adelaide Strikers put on a dominant show against Perth Scorchers as they thrashed them by 71 runs at the same venue. In that match, Philip Salt hit a fifty for Adelaide Strikers and Rashid Khan’s splendid all-round performance helped them bowl Perth Scorchers out for 94.
Despite having some power-hitters like Liam Livingstone, Colin Munro and Jason Roy, the Perth Scorchers have not gotten going and Mitchell Marsh’s captaincy is also coming under some scrutiny. With the Big Bash League now approaching the half-way stage, it is important for Perth Scorchers to bounce back as soon as possible as one more loss could see them become the first team to exit the playoff race.
