Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Stars Betting Tips 11/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The rescheduled 27th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Perth Scorchers take on Melbourne Stars at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne on Jan 11. The match is to begin at 8:40 am IST.

Teams Status

Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers are fresh from finishing a mini-Sydney leg that saw them face Sydney Sixers twice and Sydney Thunder once in back-to-back-to-back fixtures.

They have a defeat to the Thunder sandwiched between wins over the Sixers.

The win over the Sixers, though close, was impressive as it came without Colin Munro, who caught the virus and was unavailable. Jason Behrendorff was also isolated as he was in close contact with the hard-hitting Kiwi.

The duo are expected to miss this game as well as the next and will only be available for the team’s final match of the round-robin stage, provided that they clear all the tests.

The latest setbacks leave the Scorchers much weaker, especially in the batting department, and they’d now have to expect more from their bowlers.

Melbourne Stars

After seeing their weak and meek side get easily dealt with in the Melbourne Derby, the Stars were much better in the clash with Adelaide Strikers – at least their bowlers and one better were!

They rode a Joe Clark 83 to track down the 140-run target set by the Strikers, who were restricted to a modest total at best, thanks to an even bowling performance by the Stars’ ball hurlers.

Haris Rauf, Zahir Khan, and Adam Zampa – all picked up a pair of wickets each and all were stingy with giving away runs.

The batting, apart from Clarke, was still a mess and had it not been for him, the Stars would have lost.

Clarke, the England keeper, has now scored four straight half-centuries and is giving opposition bowlers nightmares. Move over Josh Philippe and Ben McDermott. The league has a new red-hot batter who can do no wrong right now.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Joe Clarke to score more than 21.5 runs @ 1.87

Joe Clarke has hit his proverbial purple patch. He has the Midas touch. With his team’s lacking quality batters, his high production is very valuable to his team. So far he has been fulfilling the expectations and so we will continue to ride him. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Total Sixes Under 9.5 @ 1.97

There is a batting crisis at both the teams with power hitters in short supply. Therefore, we believe there will be fewer maximums in this game. Had there been a Colin Munro or a Mitch Marsh, things could have been different but they’re not here. Hence, the ball might sail over the boundary a bit less than usual. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Conclusion

The state of Scorchers and the form of Clarke has left us confused regarding who’d win this one. If we really had to, though, we’d take the underdog instead of the favourites.
