The Perth Scorchers have been simply unstoppable so far this season on the back of excellent bowling performances by their pace-bowling trio consisting of the likes of Mitchell Johnson, Andrew Tye and Jhye Richardson. Ashton Turner and David Willey have been vital contributors at the same time with captain Adam Voges in fine fettle having delivered mature, power-packed performances so far.
Predicted XI: Michael Klinger, Josh Inglis, Hilton Cartwright, Ashton Turner, Adam Voges (C), Ashton Agar, David Willey, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, James Muirhead, Mitchell Johnson
The Sydney Sixers have simply failed to get going with a formidable batting lineup consisting of the likes of Daniel Hughes, Jason Roy and Nic Maddinson failing to deliver the goods so far this season. The standout performers have been fast-bowlers Daniel Sams and Sean Abbott and will be expected to get the job done yet again by captain Johan Botha.
Predicted XI: Jason Roy, Daniel Hughes, Nic Maddinson, Jordan Silk, Sam Billings, Johan Botha (C), Steve O’Keefe, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Daniel Sams, Will Somerville
