Hello and welcome to our SCO vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat will play against each other in the Challenger match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.
The Perth Scorchers performed well in the league stage and finished in 2nd place, qualifying for the Qualifier. But in that match, they could not perform well and as a result, lost by 9 wickets and will be facing Brisbane Heat in the Challenger.
Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone have been opening the innings and providing a decent start in most matches but got out early in the previous match. Colin Munro at No.3 has already scored four fifties so far this season and is one of the top five run-scorers this season and batted decently in the last match.
Josh Inglis is also performing well in his new position as the middle-order batsman and scored a brilliant fifty in the last match. Skipper Ashton Turner has been scoring some quick runs and providing an excellent finish to the team. Mitchell Marsh has given some excellent performances with the bat but got out early in the last match.
In the lower order, Aaron Hardie and Jhye Richardson have been very helpful with the bat as they have added runs every time they got a chance.
The Scorchers’ bowlers have been performing brilliantly, but their performance was not that good in the last match. Jhye Richardson has been the consistent wicket-taker in the team but went wicketless in the last match. Jason Behrendoff has also been bowling very well and regularly picking up wickets from the latter half of the season.
Fawad Ahmed has been handling the spin department decently. Andrew Tye has appeared to be getting back in form as he has been consistently picking up wickets in recent games. Liam Livingstone was the only one who managed to pick up a wicket in the last match.
Scorchers would not want their previous match’s result to affect their performance in the Challenger. They are a powerful team and have a perfect chance of qualifying for the finals.
The Heat have performed decently so far this season and put up a good performance in the Eliminator and Knockout matches. They put up an excellent performance and won the last match by 7 wickets.
The team’s batting department has been decent this season and has been even better in the last couple of matches. Skipper Chris Lynn has been opening the innings, scoring runs consistently in every game, and has already scored five fifties in the ten games he has played this season. He got out a little early in the last match.
Joe Denly opened the innings along with Lynn but got for a duck. At No.3, Labuschagne has been batting well and has been providing stability to the middle-order. Peirson has put up some good performances this season, and in the last match, he batted a little up the order and took his team over the winning line along with Sam Heazlett, who scored a brilliant fifty in the last match.
Lewis Gregory has also contributed with both bat and ball whenever required for the team. The bowling department has performed well in most of the matches and is the primary reason for the Heat being able to reach the Challenger. Mark Steketee has been the team’s consistent wicket-taker so far in this season.
Swepson and Labuschagne have been bowling well in the recent matches and picking up wickets consistently. Morne Morkel managed to pick up a wicket in the last match.
Brisbane Heat needs to maintain their winning momentum and win the Challenger against the Scorchers.
