Josh Inglis once again got out early and has not appeared to be in good form, but Colin Munro, after a disappointing start to the tournament, played well in the last match scoring almost a fifty. In the middle-order, Joe Clarke and Skipper Ashton Turner played brilliantly, scoring runs quickly.
All-rounder Mitchell Marsh has not appeared to be in perfect form after the injury, and probably he needs some more time to get back in form.
Jhye Richardson and Fawad Ahmed will be the crucial players in the bowling department. If Andrew Tye can also pick up some wickets, then Scorchers have a perfect chance of winning the match. Scorchers need to improve their overall performance and bounce back into the tournament and climb up the points table.
