Hobart Hurricanes vs Perth Scorchers Predictions

Perth Scorchers are in a rich vein of form. Having thumped the Hurricanes 10 days ago as well as last season, the Scorchers should have their measure again.

Liam Livingstone and Jason Roy have been flying at the top of the order for Perth. They can form the highest opening partnership again.

  • Hobart Hurricanes have lost 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • Hurricanes batsman Ben McDermott scored 96 in their win over Sydney Thunder in the last game.
  • Perth Scorchers have won the last 2 matches against the Hobart Hurricanes.
  • Perth Scorchers won by nine wickets against the Hobart Hurricanes last week.
  • Perth Scorchers have won 6 of their last 7 matches.
  • Scorchers batsman Liam Livingstone has scored 50s in 2 of his last 3 matches.

Head to Head

Perth Scorchers lead the head to head 8-6 against the Hobart Hurricanes. The Scorchers have won the last two clashes, a 77-run win in BBL09 in Hobart and a nine-wicket win at Optus Stadium a week ago.

The Scorchers chased down 140 with 3.4 overs to spare in the last match up. Jason Roy (74 not out) and Liam Livingstone (54) took the Hurricanes bowling apart.

Hobart Hurricanes Form

A brilliant 96 from Ben McDermott helped Hobart Hurricanes end a three-game losing run with victory over Sydney Thunder on Monday.

The Thunder scored 177/5 at Manuka Oval in Canberra, but the Hurricanes won with two overs to spare. McDermott struck 96 from 56 balls and Dawid Malan scored 42 from 28 balls.

The win moved the Hurricanes up to fifth on the ladder and breathed life back into their hopes of making the finals.

They had suffered a 10-run defeat at home to the Melbourne Stars and a 39-run loss to the Sydney Thunder in Perth. That became three losses in a row in their last game against the Scorchers.

Hobart Hurricanes Team News

Will Jacks failed on his first appearance of the season opening the batting. He will get another chance.

But the Hurricanes could opt to move Jacks to the middle order and promote Ben McDermott to the top of the order.

Perth Scorchers Form

The Scorchers made it six wins in their last seven games when thumping the Brisbane Heat by 59 runs at Manuka Oval on Tuesday.

Colin Munro's 82 helped the Scorchers to 174/5 before a dominant performance with the ball as they bowled the Heat out for 115.

Fawad Ahmed (3/25), Jhye Richardson (2/10), Andrew Tye (2/12) and Jason Behrendorff (2/17) all excelled to dismiss Brisbane cheaply.

The only blip in the last seven BBL matches came with a seven-wicket defeat to the Sydney Sixers in Canberra. The Sixers chased down 164 with an over to spare.

Perth Scorchers Team News

The Scorchers should go in unchanged, unless Mitch Marsh is passed fit to return. If he is, Cameron Bancroft will make way.
