Match Details

The 21st match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 will be played between Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

This match will start at 1:45 PM IST (6:15 PM local time). It will be live on Sony Sports Network and can be streamed live on Sony LIV.


Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers will meet for the second time in three days at the Adelaide Oval in the ongoing BBL season. The Strikers thumped the Scorchers by 71 runs in the previous face-off and the Perth team will be keen on giving it back to their opposition. The Strikers have so far churned out 13 points with three wins from five matches and are at the third position in the points table.

The Scorchers, on the other hand, have succumbed to three defeats so far in four outings with the other game being washed out. They are yet to win a single game and the Scorchers will have to start winning matches soon as time is running out for them. Having played against the Strikers only a couple of days ago, they will have back themselves to make a comeback and bag crucial points.
