Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes Match Pitch Report
Perth is generally known for the assistance it provides for new ball pacers with good bounce and the presence of large square boundaries.
What to expect:
Perth Scorchers: Perth’s season opener against Melbourne Renegades was abandoned due to an unfit pitch. In their next match, they took down Melbourne Stars by 7 wickets with more than six overs remaining, while chasing a target of just 102.
Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, and Ashton Turner stood out as major contributors among the top six run scorers in the previous season. They collected 460, 431, and 381 runs, respectively. Notably, all three maintained a remarkable strike rate of more than 140, with averages above 35, and attained a total of 12 half-centuries.
Stephen Eskinazi (238 runs in the last 10 matches) will have plenty of chances to plunder some runs as the opener of the side.
Perth Scorchers have a strong trio of seasoned pacers, with the left-arm, right-arm combo of Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson for the opening stints and Andrew Tye frequently taking wickets in the death overs. They have gathered over 330 Big Bash wickets between them and will pose a threat to any batting unit.
Perth Scorchers Key Players
- Aaron Hardie – The top-order batter hit a four and a six in a typically attacking innings against Melbourne Stars. He picked up a wicket in that game also and looks like a really handy all-rounder this year.
- Zak Crawley – The tall right-hander has a strong reputation in Australia after his impressive Ashes series. He is able to drive short-length balls such as his reach.
- Jason Behrendorff – The tall left-arm pace bowler got the wickets of Beau Webster, Marcus Stoinis, and Nick Larkin in his first four overs of the tournament.
- Andrew Tye – It is very rare for the experienced fast-medium bowler to go through a BBL game without dismissing a batter and he picked up figures of 1/24.
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, Lance Morris, Sam Whiteman, Ashton Agar, Zak Crawley, Liam Haskett, Cameron Gannon
Hobart Hurricanes: In their season opener against Sydney Sixers, Hobart Hurricanes could only manage 135-8 after batting first and went on to lose the game by 6 wickets. Caleb Jewell’s 42 off 24 balls was the only decent performance worth talking about.
The Hurricanes do have a solid batting unit. Apart from Jewell, the likes of Ben McDermott and Matthew Wade will also have a role to play this season for the team. Then there is the hard-hitting Tim David in the middle, who can destroy any bowling attack on his day. David has a strike rate of 170 in his last 10 matches and can be the game-changer for the Hurricanes.
On paper, the Hurricanes should be strong at bowling. Nathan Ellis is a specialist in the last four, with a career economy rate of less than nine. Last season, he and Riley Meredith combined for 39 wickets in 14 matches and made for a dangerous combo at either end of the inning, with the latter frequently used in the powerplay.
Chris Jordan brings almost 200 T20s of experience to the table as another option at the end of the innings.
Hobart Hurricanes Key Players
- Matthew Wade – The keeper-batter always scores his T20 runs at a strong strike rate and he comes into this match with a top score of 130 not out in this format.
- Caleb Jewell – The opener went past 900 T20 runs in the defeat against Sydney Sixers when he top-scored with 42 runs from 24 balls.
- Nathan Ellis – The skipper picked up his first wicket of this year’s BBL in Launceston. His variations could be very useful on the quick pitch in Perth.
- Chris Jordan – The vastly experienced bowling all-rounder hit a six with the bat but went wicketless against Sydney Sixers. However, with 342 T20 wickets, he is always a threat in this format.
Probable XI: Matthew Wade(w), Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Sam Hain, Tim David, Corey Anderson, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Peter Hatzoglou, Riley Meredith
Hobart Hurricanes Squad: Matthew Wade(w), Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Sam Hain, Tim David, Corey Anderson, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Peter Hatzoglou, Riley Meredith, Nikhil Chaudhary, Mitchell Owen, Billy Stanlake

Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Zak Crawley, Aaron Hardie and Josh Inglis are our tips with the bat for Perth Scorchers. Keeper-batter Inglis has developed as a player over the last two years and he impressed during the 2023 Cricket World Cup as well as hitting a T20I century last month. Crawley’s highest score in T20 cricket is 108 not out.
We recommend Matthew Wade, Sam Hain and Caleb Jewell with the bat for Hobart Hurricanes. Right-handed Hain has been a fine performer for many years in domestic cricket in England and averages 40.08 from 119 innings. Jewell needs two more fours to bring up his 100th four in this format.
Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
We are backing Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye are our picks with the ball for Perth Scorchers. Richardson bowled with his customary pace and accuracy against Melbourne Stars picking up wickets in the first and 12th overs. Tye is 5 wickets away from bringing up 150 BBL dismissals.
Nathan Ellis, Chris Jordan and Billy Stanlake are our bowling choices for Hobart Hurricanes. Tall pace bowler Stanlake has 81 wickets at a strike-rate of 19.8 in T20 cricket. Ellis has an excellent T20I record and is very good at disguising his slower balls.
