Strikers will play as favorite against Perth though Adelaide Strikers lost their first match of this season against Brisbane Heat. The fact is it was high scoring match and Strikers were chasing 206. It was great batting performance from Ben Dunk and Weatherald but team failed to chase the target by 10 runs.
Adam Voges to lead Scorchers in the tournament and this year there is no Brad Hogg who was trump card for Perth in previous editions of BBLT20. Mitchell Johnson will be seen playing throughout the sixth big bash edition as he has already retired from international cricket. Ian Bell, Mitchell Marsh, Michael Klinger are the key batsmen in Scorchers side.
On the other hand, Brad Hodge is capable alone to turn around the game. Openers Dunk and Weatherald have already shown their batting class in the opening match. Travis Head, Hodge and Pollard need to play very well in the middle and lower overs to take Adelaide par score.
