Melbourne Stars vs Perth Scorchers Match Pitch Report
The most effective bowling types at this venue are Wrist spin and Express pace due to the longer boundaries and pacers with extra pace can trouble batters who are weak on the back foot. Pacers who bowl in the powerplay in the second innings have had considerable success at MCG.
What to expect:
Melbourne Stars: The Melbourne Stars were the bottom-ranked team last season. Their latest campaign hasn’t been off to a good start either as they lost to Brisbane Heat on the opening night. As they face the defending champions, the Stars have a tough job ahead of them.
Despite having a strong batting line-up, the Stars were unable to take advantage as they lost out to Brisbane by a massive margin of 108 runs. Tom Rogers and Sam Harper are likely to open the batting for them and will look to give the team a stable start.
There are some quality batsmen in the middle order, including Joe Burns, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. With neither of them being a part of the upcoming Test match against Pakistan, they will be available for this match. The Stars are also home to all-rounders Hilton Cartwright and Liam Dawson, both of whom can strike some lusty blows.
It was a very poor bowling effort from the team on the opening night as they gave away over 200 runs. The seam attack consisting of Joel Paris, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Olly Stone will look to get some early wickets, while Usama Mir and Liam Dawson will form the spin department.
Melbourne Stars Key Players
- Hilton Cartwright – The middle-order batter hit a quick-fire 33 runs from 16 balls against Brisbane Heat and we can expect to see him in the top five for this game.
- Marcus Stoinis – With Maxwell injured for this fixture, the strong all-rounder becomes even more important for this Melbourne Stars side. He is a potential match-winner with both bat and ball.
- Haris Rauf – The Pakistan international has a strike rate of 16.1 in T20Is and has best bowling figures of 5/27 in T20 cricket. He will bowl with genuine pace and accuracy.
- Liam Dawson – The all-rounder has been in excellent form in white ball cricket over recent years and the England international has taken 191 wickets across his T20 career.
Probable XI: Thomas Rogers, Sam Harper(w), Marcus Stoinis(c), Hilton Cartwright, Nick Larkin, Liam Dawson, Usama Mir, Joel Paris, Jonathan Merlo, Beau Webster, Brody Couch
Melbourne Stars Squad: Thomas Rogers, Sam Harper(w), Marcus Stoinis(c), Hilton Cartwright, Nick Larkin, Liam Dawson, Usama Mir, Joel Paris, Jonathan Merlo, Beau Webster, Brody Couch, Campbell Kellaway, Mark Steketee, Corey Rocchiccioli, Haris Rauf
Perth Scorchers: The Perth Scorchers’ opening fixture was called off due to unsafe playing conditions and as a result, they were forced to share points with the Melbourne Renegades.
The Scorchers have been the most consistent team in the BBL, lifting the title for a record 5 times. As they have retained most of their core players, the team will be hoping to put up another good performance. Cooper Connolly, whose heroics with the bat helped the Scorchers win BBL 12, is likely to be promoted to the opening slot alongside Stevie Eskinazi.
The middle order consists of Aaron Hardie, who was the leading run-scorer of the last season, Josh Inglis, Ashton Turner, Nick Hobson, and Laurie Evans. The Perth Scorchers have a strong seam attack at their disposal as Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, and Jason Behrendorff have plenty of experience in the format.
Hamish McKenzie is likely to be the specialist spinner on the team.
Perth Scorchers Key Players
- Aaron Hardie – On a pitch where no other batter scored more than six runs, last year’s leading run scorer in the tournament managed to hit four fours in his 20-n-out.
- Josh Inglis – The keeper-batter has now established himself as Australia’s number one ODI keeper-batter and has a top T20 score of 118 not out.
- Jhye Richardson – With a strike rate of 15.51 across his BBL career, the 27-year-old pace bowler can be expected to bowl a full length and get plenty of swing against the Stars.
- Jason Behrendorff – Only six other bowlers have taken more wickets than the tall left-arm quick who has best figures in the BBL of 4/22.
Probable XI: Stephen Eskinazi, Cooper Connolly, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis(w), Ashton Turner(c), Laurie Evans, Nick Hobson, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Hamish McKenzie, Jason Behrendorff
Perth Scorchers Squad: Stephen Eskinazi, Cooper Connolly, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis(w), Ashton Turner(c), Laurie Evans, Nick Hobson, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Hamish McKenzie, Jason Behrendorff, Sam Whiteman, Matthew Kelly
