Defending champions Perth Scorchers (SCO) will challenge Adelaide Strikers (STR) in the knockout of the ongoing BBL 2023-2024 - which means, the winner will move on to Qualifier 2, while the losing team will be eliminated from the competition.

The hosts Scorchers started the season well but stumbled a couple of times towards the end as they finished third on the points table with 13 points from 10 matches. Strikers, on the other hand, are unbeaten in the last four matches but interestingly, their last defeat came against Scorches earlier in the season. 

Keeping that in mind, the Matthew Short-led side will seek revenge but given Scorcher’s history, they are a tough team to beat in knockout matches. Thus, it would be a scintillating battle when these two sides meet each other on January 20 at the Perth Stadium.
