Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Brisbane Heat have gained some momentum in the New Year and have won three matches on the trot in the ongoing BBL season. They now travel to Perth to face the Scorchers in match 32 of the tournament. The Chris Lynn-led side is currently at the third position in the points table with four wins and three losses in seven matches. The team would love to carry their winning momentum in the second half of the season even as AB de Villiers is soon set to join them.
The Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, have two out of their last three games. They are at sixth place in the table with three wins from seven matches. They will have to be consistent enough to make it to the top four and their skipper Mitchell Marsh will be hoping to do the same in the upcoming games. A confident win over the Melbourne Renegades should keep the Scorchers in good stead coming into this encounter.
The weather is absolutely perfect for the game of cricket to take place in Perth on Saturday. There is no chance of rain at all during the game. The temperature is expected to hover around 28-29 Degrees Celsius after 6 PM according to AccuWeather.
The surface at the Perth Stadium has been extremely good for batting this season. All three matches so far have witnessed scores of more than 170 in the first innings. However, chasing hasn’t been easy at the venue. The trend is expected to continue with the team winning the toss expected to bat first.
Average first innings score: 183 (Three matches this season at the venue)
