SCO vs THU Dream11 Prediction: The Scorchers are on the verge of being the first team to make the playoffs in BBL 11.  Seated at the top of BBL 11 rankings with 8 wins in 9 matches, the three-time Big Bash champions are clearly heads and shoulders above the remaining sides. Interestingly, Scorchers’ only loss this season has been at the hands of the Sydney Thunder, in a match where they fell short by 34 runs while chasing a 201-run total, courtesy of the heroics from Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green and Saqib Mahmood. As far as the Sydney Thunder are considered, they have managed to bolster wins in their last three matches, including a recent 28-run win over the Adelaide Strikers, courtesy of the top-notch exhibitions from Matthew Gilkes (93) and pacer Mohammad Hasnain (3/20) to occupy the third spot in the points table.

Who will win SCO vs THU today match?

Though it has been an even encounter in the past, heading into this contest in BBL 11, Perth Scorchers are slight favourites for this match. As was visible in the recent match against the Sixers, the Scorchers’ have a multitude of match-winners in their batting and bowling line-up: Kurtis Patterson, Colin Munro, Aaron Hardie, Andrew Tye to name a few, that could get the job done at Carrara Oval. And it’s not like the Thunders’ are to be considered a weak side, for they have capitalized on the momentum which they gained since the win over the Scorchers in their previous matchup. Not to mention Alex Hales’ coming back to the side could pose a threat to the Scorchers. However, Scorchers look well-rounded for this feud.
