Match Preview

Both teams are out of contention for qualifiers and would love play spoilsport in other team's chances. These teams would love to avoid the last spot in the table. Brisbane Heat have lost all their matches after the light fiasco in the Gabba. Despite the bright start, their top order combination of McCullum, Chris Lynn and Max Bryant have faltered in last 3-4 matches. Alex Ross and Jimmy Pierson made fifties to take the team to a respectable score. Bowlers Josh Lalor, Brendan Doggett and Ben Cutting have taken wickets but are guilty of leaking runs. Afghani spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman has been the lone solace in the bowling department. 

Perth Scorchers take the last place in the points table for the most of the tournament so far. They suffered a morale crushing defeat by bundling out for 79 runs last match. Ashton Turner had a good tournament scoring some vital runs for the tournament. Shaun Marsh and Cameron Bancroft has supported the team's cause with the bat. Rest of batting order has not made enough runs with the bat. Jason Behrendoff, Nathan CounterNile and Andrew Tye has not performed to their potential and lacking the penetration in the bowling department. Usman Qadir and Chris Green form the spin duo for the team.

Toss: WIN the toss, BOWL First

Teams batting second have won two matches here and the targets have been around the 140-150 mark. Any score above 170 runs is tough to chase. Both teams will look to chase the opposition's score.
