Table-toppers Perth Scorchers (SCO) take on bottom dwellers Brisbane Heat (HEA) in their final league stage game of Big Bash League 2021-22 season at Docklands Stadium in Melbourne on Monday, January 17. The match will start at 2:45 PM IST.
HEA vs SCO Dream11 prediction
Both Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers have already met this season. The match saw the latter riding on the back of Kurtis Patterson’s quickfire half-century followed by Matthew Kelly’s four-wicket haul to cruise to a six-run win.
HEA’s season since that defeat has gone south as the team has lost four of their last five matches. SCO, on the other hand, sit at the top of the table with a comfortable seven-point lead over second-placed Sydney Sixers after having won 10 of their 13 matches.
Come Monday, we expect SCO to do the double over HEA.
