SCO vs STA Dream11 Prediction: The first match of Tuesday’s double-header in Gillong will witness table-toppers Perth Scorchers in a rematch with the seventh-placed Melbourne Stars. Scorchers, who have mustered 9 wins in 11 matches, have had a number of match-winners across the squad and by the looks of it, they could possibly go undefeated in the remaining matches of the league stages. Meanwhile, the Melbourne Stars still have five matches left to play, and if things go well for the Men in Green, they could find themselves competing in the eliminators. As of now, the Stars have won only four matches, while they ended up on the losing front on five occasions.

Kurtis Patterson Stats in T20
The southpaw has been one of the vital cogs in the Scorchers’ batting line-up. He has been effective in providing consistent starts to the Scorchers thereby accumulating 267 runs across 8 innings while striking at 143.54. Not to forget, he has managed to crack 3 half-centuries which include a well-struck 54 in the previous matchup against the Stars.
Andrew Tye Stats in T20
The veteran may have had an off night against the Sydney Sixers, nonetheless, he remains a valuable pick from a fantasy cricket perspective. The right-arm pacer has consistently ranked among the highest wicket-takers in BBL and this season hasn’t been any different, with 18 scalps in 11 matches at an average of 16.22 and an economy of 7.78.

Adam Zampa Stats in T20
So far in his T20 career, the 29-year-old has bagged over 220 wickets while painting a strike rate of 18. His leg-breaks and googlies have posed a threat to the batters and now, with the conditions at Simonds likely to favor the bowlers, one could anticipate the spin maestro to force a few dismissals against the Scorchers.
Joe Clarke Stats in T20
The top-order batter has been on a rampage in the last four matches with knocks of 52, 85, 52, and 83 in the recently concluded outing against the Adelaide Strikers. His form with the willow can be a huge positive for the Men in Green to bag a spot in the knockouts. In addition to his scoring, the English cricketer could offer points for the fours and sixes hit and the dismissals affected when behind the stumps.
Perth Scorchers have been a force to deal with in the ongoing edition of BBL. Both batting and bowling units have been a menace for the opposition. With skipper Ashton Turner and Aaron Hardie aiding in the scoring, the Scorchers’ middle-order looks even more settled. Bowling-wise, they already possess the quartet of Andrew Tye, Ashton Agar, Matthew Kelly and Peter Hatzoglou who’ve shared the wicket-taking responsibilities with finesse. As per SCO vs STA today match prediction and Perth Scorchers vs Adelaide Strikers cricket betting tips, Perth Scorchers are to be the heavy favorites to win this outing.
