Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Perth Scorchers are ranked sixth in the league table of BBL 2019-20. However, they need to buck up and win some games if they want to stay in the contention to qualify for the playoffs. In batting, they have Josh Inglis, Liam Livingstone and Cameron Bancroft, who will be having the responsibility to pile some big runs in the game against Hurricanes. On the other hand, their bowling unit have so far done the convincing job and the same would be expected from them in their first game for the year 2020.

They have some big T20 specialists in their side like D’Arcy Short, David Miller, James Faulkner and Qais Ahmad, who will be having the responsibility on their shoulder to win the match for their side.
