Melbourne, January 09, Wednesday at 01:45 PM IST
Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Stars are all set to come head to head at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on Wednesday noon in the upcoming BBL fixture. Placed third in the ladder with 6 points coming off three wins in five encounters, Melbourne Stars would be eyeing the second spot with another when they host Scorchers.
Perth Scorchers are going through a rough patch and are placed at the bottom of the points table. With just one win in six encounters, Scorchers are in desperate need of a couple of quick wins to gain some momentum. However, it is becoming difficult for Scorchers with each passing game. In Wednesday’s encounter, Scorchers will be missing the services of regular skipper Mitch Marsh, and two of their key bowlers – Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorf due to national call-ups.
Melbourne Stars too will be missing out the services of regular skipper Glenn Maxwell along with Marcus Stoinis, Peter Handscomb and Adam Zampa. They will be led by temporary skipper Nic Maddinson till the time.
