Perth Scorchers is a well-balanced side, their batting and the bowling department has performed consistently well. They have won their previous 6 out of 7 games this season. They will be hoping to continue their dominance and solidify their position at the top of the table. On the other hand, the Melbourne Stars have performed pretty well in some of their recent games but their bowling department has not been at their best. We expect Perth Scorchers to win this game.
Top Batsman from Melbourne Stars – Joe Clarke (4.75 odds)
Joe Clarke is a tremendous batsman. He is in excellent form at the moment having scored 151 runs so far in this series. He is an explosive batsman and can hit boundaries in the powerplay overs. He can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best batsman from Melbourne Stars.
Top Batsman from Perth Scorchers– Colin Munro (4.25 odds)
Colin Munro is the top Batting option from the Perth Scorchers side, he is performing consistently well with his bat. He scored 64 runs in his previous games against Thunders and will look to repeat the same again in this match. Colin Munro is our pick for best batsman from the Perth Scorchers.
Top Bowler from Melbourne Stars– Brody Couch (3.25 odds)
Brody Couch has impressed everyone with his impressive line and length. He has looked really threatening with the new ball in powerplay overs. In the last match, he only conceded 34 runs and took three wickets and he is our pick for best bowler from the Melbourne Stars.
Top Bowler from Perth Scorchers – Andrew Tye (2.75 odds)
Andrew Tye is in tremendous form and performing consistently well, he has picked up 11 wickets so far in this series and he can be an impactful player for this match and can give you big returns. He is our pick for the best bowler.
