The 16th match of the ongoing Big Bash League will see Perth Scorchers taking on Adelaide Strikers at the Perth Stadium on December 26. Strikers, who currently are at the top of the table, have won three out of their four matches while the Scorchers are currently third in the table with two wins out of three games.

The Ashton Turner-led side absolutely wreaked havoc in their previous match against the Melbourne Stars. Stumper-batter Josh Inglis smashed 74 runs in 33 deliveries while opener Faf du Plessis scored 68 runs in 33 deliveries. Courtesy of their carnage, the Scorchers put up 229 runs on board after 20 overs. The bowlers did a good job as well. Jason Behrendorff picked up three wickets while Peter Hatzoglou picked up two wickets. 

Now, despite a massive win in their previous match, Scorchers are not going to have it easy against the Strikers. The Peter Siddle-led side did lose their last match but they have tremendous consistency before that. The top order failed to put up a show against Brisbane Heat and the pressure completely fell on the middle order and they eventually failed to deliver. Colin de Grandhomme and Thomas Kelly played a sensible knock but the team lost by six runs. In the match against the Scorchers, the Strikers will definitely aim to get the win and cement their position at the top of the league.
