Hello and welcome to our SCO vs THU Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Perth Scorchers and Sydney Thunder will play against each other in the 34th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at The Perth Stadium, Perth.
The Perth Scorchers have a very tough time but also trying to make a comeback as they have won three games out of seven so far this season and are currently at the 7th position on the points table with 13 points. Scorchers performed brilliantly and won the match comfortably by a massive margin of 86 runs.
The change of batting order has been working very well for the Scorchers. Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone have been opening the innings and providing a decent start. Josh Inglis is also getting back in form batting at No.3 and 4 depending on the situation.
Colin Munro has appeared to be in right touch, and even though he has started batting in the middle-order, he is still scoring runs at a reasonable rate. Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Turner have been putting up excellent performance providing good finishes to the team.
The Scorchers’ bowlers are also getting better in their performance from the last few matches. Jhye Richardson and Fawad Ahmed have been the consistent wicket-takers in the team. In the previous game, Andrew Tye bowled exceptionally well picking up four wickets for just 20 runs.
If the Scorchers manage to keep their winning momentum going, they have a perfect chance of qualifying for the playoffs as there are enough matches left for them.
The Sydney Thunder are having a great time so far as they have won 6 out of 8 matches and are currently at the top of the points table with a total of 22 points. In the last game, Sydney Thunder won the game comfortably by 39 runs.
Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja have been giving a brilliant start to the inning this season. In the last game, Khawaja got out on 49, falling just short of 1 run to his fifty. The most consistent batsman of the team, Callum Ferguson scored only one run in the last match.
Alex Ross replaced Oliver Davies in the previous match and batted brilliantly in the middle-order and Arjun Nair who replaced injured Daniel Sams also scored some runs. Sam Billings has batted decently so far in this season, but he has not scored much. Ben Cutting has been brilliant throughout the season and also batted exceptionally well in the last match.
After a couple of bad performances, the bowlers finally managed to bowl well and picked up wickets at regular intervals. Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green have been picking up wickets consistently so far this season, and in the last match, Nathan McAndrew, Adam Milne, and Arjun Nair bowled well picking up wickets.
Thunder have a perfect batting unit, and their bowlers have also appeared to be getting back to form, and if they continue to perform this way, it will be very tough for the other teams to defeat them.
