Brisbane Heat vs Perth Scorchers– Big Bash League match prediction
It was a disappointing outing for the Heat in their previous encounter where the two teams played at Perth’s home ground. On a wonderful batting surface, the visitors were restricted to 171/9, courtesy of Andrew Tye’s 3/37. Colin Munro top-scored with his 26-ball 45 while others got off to brilliant starts, but couldn’t convert them. In the end, a 172-run target is all they could put forward and that was not the end of their misery.
Despite a fighting total on the board, the Scorchers came out all guns blazing and made it look like a cakewalk. A 111-run stand between Cameron Bancroft and Aaron Hardie changed the context of the game. The former scored an unbeaten 48-ball 76 while Aaron Hardie was run out for a well made 33-ball 57. In the end, skipper Ashton Turner smashed a 12-ball 23 to help his side win by 7 wickets and 21 balls to spare.
This win helped Scorchers make it a staggering 6th win in just 8 matches. The reigning champions will make it a very difficult for Brisbane at home. Overall, the Heat have won just 7 matches while Scorchers have won 12 games. Keeping that statistic and current form in mind, we predict Perth Scorchers to win as per today’s big bash match prediction.
