Melbourne Stars will be looking to make it three in a row, while the Perth Scorchers will look to put up their first points on the board.

Perth Scorchers Form & Team News

The Perth Scorchers showed a poor display of batting and bowling in the opening match against the Melbourne Renegades. Aaron Hardie was the highest run-scorer with 33 runs from 36 ball, apart from him no one was able to keep the scorecard running. The Scorchers managed to pick just three wickets, out of which two were picked by Jhye Richardson and one by Fawad Ahmed.

The Scorchers need to take a step back and refocus on their strategies once again when they come out against the Melbourne Stars. They look a really good side with some firepower in the batting like Colin Munro, Mitch Marsh, Aston Turner, Cameron Bancroft, Josh Inglis and a well experienced bowling lineup including Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff and Fawad Ahmed.

Melbourne Stars Form & Team News

It’s looking like the Melbourne Stars have picked up where they have left it last season with two clinical wins. They have outplayed the Brisbane Heat and the Sydney Thunder with both bat and ball. Nathan Coulter-Nile was exceptional in the first match with four for and a master class by Marcus Stoinis in the second match with some useful contribution by Glenn Maxwell.

The Stars look like a complete team this season, and do not want to make any changes to their side. From Marcus Stoinis and Andre Fletcher at the top, Hilton Cartwright and Ben Dunk in the middle to Glenn Maxwell and Nick Larkin as finishers and then the experienced Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa and Billy Stanlake with the ball, the Stars are well balanced.
