Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The sixth and seventh-placed sides in the points table, Perth Scorchers and Hobart Hurricanes will face-off in the match 35 of the ongoing BBL season. The teams are coming into this encounter with contrasting fortunes. While the Scorchers have won both their previous games, the Hurricanes have lost two of their erstwhile encounters. Matthew Wade’s arrival hasn’t changed much for them and will have to start winning games soon to stay in the hunt for playoffs.
The Scorchers were wonderfully led by Mitchell Marsh in the previous game who scored a stunning 93* off 41 balls against the Brisbane Heat. The momentum is clearly with the visitors at the moment but the Hurricanes are playing at home. The previous encounter between the two teams was also won by the Hurricanes which should give them a boost.
It will be a bit cloudy in Hobart in the evening on Monday. But there is no rain in the forecast which bodes well for the teams. The temperature is expected to hover around 18-21 Degrees Celsius according to AccuWeather.
So far only two matches have taken place at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart this season. Both the games were played on different strips it seems as one of them was a high-scoring affair while in the other one, 160 seemed to be the par-score. The Heat smacked 212 runs in the previous game at the venue. And the teams will be confused whether to bat or bowl after winning the toss.
Average first innings score: 179 (2 matches at the venue this season)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 1
