SCO vs HUR Dream11: It will be Perth Scorchers to take on Hobart Hurricanes in 37th match of BBL 10 here at Optus Stadium in Perth. After a poor start to their campaign, Perth Scorchers have fought back with 4 wins in a row. With Roy and Livingstone at the top, they have an explosive opening pair. Munro and wicketkeeper Josh Inglis have been scoring runs consistently ever since moving to the middle order. Mitch Marsh and skipper Ashton Turner form a perfect combination as finishers and will look to continue their hitting form. The fast bowling has the variety required to trouble any opposition. Fawad Ahmed’s experience in this format makes him a perfect option as the specialist spinner. With a win against an in-form Thunder in the last game, Scorchers’ confidence will be on a high and they will look to continue their good form.
Meanwhile, it has been a mixed bag for Hobart Hurricanes so far. After starting their season on a strong note, they have gone slightly off the radar. Their batting looks one of the strongest on paper but apart from Ben McDermott, there hasn’t been any significant performance so far. D’Arcy Short’s lack of runs with the bat is a concern while Malan is yet to make his mark this season. With Ingram and David in the lower order, they can be ruthless in the slog overs. Hurricanes will look to bring back fast bowler Riley Meredith who can be useful on a bouncy Perth wicket. Lamichhane is a reliable option in the middle overs which gives Hurricanes’ attack some variety.
