Hello and welcome to our SCO vs STR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Perth Scorchers vs Adelaide Strikers will play against each other in the 17th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.
The Perth Scorchers had to face disappointment once again as they lost their last match by seven wickets, and they are yet to win a game this season. Scorchers are currently at the 7th position on the points table with a total of 2 points.
Josh Inglis once again got out early and has not appeared to be in good form so far this season, but his opening partner Colin Munro has been performing decently and scoring runs from the top. Mitchell Marsh looked back in form as he scored a fifty in the last match and was unbeaten at the crease.
Ashton Turner has been playing his quick innings in every match and performing consistently right from the season’s start. In the lower middle-order, Cameron Bancroft also batted well and helped the team post a decent total.
The Scorchers’ bowling performance has not been up to the mark so far this season as they have consistently failed to pick up wickets. Their bowlers went for runs in the last match, and only Jason Behrendorff, Fawad, and Aaron Hardie managed to pick up a wicket each.
Scorchers are missing the intent to win the match and have not been performing to their best level. They need to start improving their performance and start winning the games, or else it will be very tough for them in the future.
Adelaide Strikers have managed to win two matches out of the four played so far and are currently at the 5th position on the points table with a total of 9 points. They won their last match by just two runs in a thrilling final over.
The opening batsman, Phil Salt, performed decently, but his partner Jake Weatherald got out early in the innings. Matt Renshaw and Jon Wells, who was going through a rough patch in the last few matches, put up a decent performance and helped the team build innings in the middle overs.
In the end, Harry Nielsen’s 28 runs helped the team to post a fighting total of 150 runs.
The bowling performance was once again brilliant in the last match, and they started picking up wickets right from the start, and they never allowed the opposition to put up a good partnership.
Everything went fine until the 14th, but after that, the opposition started scoring quickly, and the Strikers failed to pick up wickets. As a result, the opposition needed just 13 runs in the final over, but Worrall bowled brilliantly and restricted the opposition, and won the match by only two runs.
Danny Briggs was the best among the bowlers as he picked up three wickets. Siddle and Rashid managed to pick up two wickets each.
Strikers have been performing decently in their bowling department, and they have also appeared to be in their batting performance, and if they keep acting this way, they have a perfect chance of being at the top of the table.
