Perth Scorchers look to do the double over Hobart Hurricanes - get BBL 2021-22 predictions
Unbeaten Perth Scorchers (SCO) take on Hobart Hurricanes (HUR) in match 15 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season at Blundstone Arena on Monday, December 20. The match will start at 1:45 PM IST.
SCO vs HUR Dream11 prediction
Perth Scorchers are the only unbeaten team this season. On top of that, they have already faced Hobart Hurricanes in the reverse fixture where Mitchell Marsh’s unbeaten ton helped them cruise to a 53-run victory.
The Ashton Turner-led side also enjoys the upper hand in terms of their head-to-head record with Hobart Hurricanes. In a total of 16 meetings, SCO have recorded 10 wins while HUR have only managed six victories.
Meanwhile, HUR have not been in the best of forms this season, having won just one of their three matches. Hence, we expect SCO to get their fourth win on the trot and continue their dominant run.
SCO vs HUR Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
With 117 runs in three outings, opening batter Colin Munro of SCO is the highest run-getter for his team. Batting at a strike rate of 146.25 has made him an asset for the fantasy managers as he has accrued 175 fantasy points - most by any batsmen for this fixture. Hence, it comes as no surprise that he is the most picked batter.
Top tip: Best bowler
SCO pacer Andrew Tye is currently the joint-highest wicket-taker in the competition with seven scalps in three matches. Tye is taking a wicket every 8.5 deliveries; a number that is only bettered by his teammate Matthew Kelly in the competition. Given the nature of the pitch, Tye is certain to add more fantasy points to his already illustrious tally of 200 points.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
HUR all-rounder D’Arcy Short is the most picked player for this match. Selected by 93.74 per cent of fantasy managers, Short has accrued 164 fantasy points while making it to the Dream Team on two occasions. Although he went wicketless against SCO last time out, he made an important contribution of 31 runs with the bat to finish with 42 points.
Amongst the wicket-keepers, HUR captain Matthew Wade remains an outright choice. Wade is averaging 61 fantasy points per game after having accumulated 184 points in three outings already this season. The number is significantly more than closest competitor Cameron Bancroft who has 115 points in two games.
SCO vs HUR probable playing XI
SCO playing XI (probable): Kurtis Patterson, Colin Munro, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Inglis (wicket-keeper), Ashton Turner (captain), Laurie Evans, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Hatzoglou, Tymal Mills
