Preview for SCO vs STA Dream11 Contest
The Perth Scorchers are comfortably sitting on top of the table, and are getting better with every passing game. They will be up against the Melbourne Stars, who were on a 4-losing streak, ended that with a win last game against the Adelaide Strikers. Although the Stars find themselves 7th in the points table, they aren’t far from the 4th spot and have two games in hand when compared to 4th placed Hurricanes.
This won’t be an easy game for one of the most consistent teams in BBL history, but they definitely are capable of punching above their weight against the Scorchers.
Probable Playing XI
Kurtis Patterson, Cameron Bancroft (wk), Chris Sabburg, Ashton Turner (c), Laurie Evans, Aaron Hardie, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Matthew Kelly, Peter Hatzoglou, Jason Behrendorff
Joe Clarke (wk), Clint Hinchliffe, Nick Larkin, Joe Burns, Hilton Cartwright, Beau Webster, Xavier Crone, Qais Ahmad, Adam Zampa (c), Haris Rauf, Brody Couch
The weather conditions seem pretty normal for Tuesday, with the temperatures ranging from 17-26 degrees throughout the day in Geelong. Scorchers will feel hard-done to not have actual home advantage for this game, but their form should be seeing them through on most occasions.
There are plenty of runs up for grabs at this venue, but the batters will have to work their way in. Teams batting second have had a considerable advantage and toss could prove to be pivotal.
SCO vs STA Dream11 Prediction
The Scorchers are in red-hot form and have been less considerate against opponents this entire season. They have registered 7 wins and are facing a Stars’ unit who will be without Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. The suggestion for fantasy managers will be to try out a team with a majority of the Scorchers’ players in it for better returns.
