The 49th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Adelaide Strikers host Perth Scorchers at Adelaide Oval on Jan 14 (Friday). The match is to begin at 5:10 am IST.

Teams Status

Adelaide Strikers

Two victories in their last three games have revived Adelaide Strikers’ campaign and they are now firmly in contention for the last two playoffs spots.

Their last win, against Brisbane Heat, was super impressive and largely the doing of their outgoing Afghan spin wizard Rashid Khan, who claimed a stunning six-for to skittle Brisbane for a mere 90 in response to Adelaide’s 161.

It was a bittersweet moment for the Strikers because the match-winning performance by Rashid was also his last of the season as he now has to report for national duty.

Coinciding with Rashid’s departure has been the Strikers finding a new bowling option, although not like-for-like and nowhere near the same class but he would do for now. Henry Thornton made his season debut and bowled with a decent pace, giving away just 12 runs in his 3 overs.

Earlier, the batters had also done well, with almost everyone making decent contributions towards the team’s 161-run total.

Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers have amassed 37 points and sit pretty at the top of the league. They’ve lost only to Sydney Thunder (twice) all season and that is the only side that can threaten their status as league leaders.

In their last game, the Scorchers defeated Melbourne Stars, which is a treatment they mete out to most sides not named Sydney.

What’s scary is that recently they’ve started getting runs from unexpected places and from players who either weren’t there before or did not need to do much.

In the last game, Nick Hobson, who was making his season debut, scored 46. Then, against the Stars, Laurie Evans scored a 69 despite being quiet for much of the tournament. Ashton Turner, too, has a 47* and 69 in his last two but hadn’t done much before that. These are signs of a powerful unit that does not get bogged down due to the absence of any particular players.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Perth to win @ 1.56

Perth Scorchers will again be without the key trio of Mitch Marsh, Josh Inglis, and Colin Munro, although they are expected back for the next game. Their absence leaves their batting weak but it hasn’t shown or been taken advantage of by oppositions just yet. Besides, Perth’s bowling is head and shoulders above Adelaide’s after the latter lost Rashid. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Most Fours in the match – Perth Scorchers @ 1.84

Despite missing several of their power hitters, Perth Scorchers are still getting more than their share of the runs. That, coupled with the fact that their suffocative bowling does not give opposition batters much room makes this a good play. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Conclusion

This can be a close game due to Perth missing key players but we expect them to still come out on top.
