Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers BBL13 preview

The Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers will play their second Big Bash League match in as many days when they clash at the Adelaide Oval on Friday.

These two sides last met on Wednesday where Laurie Evans demolished the Strikers bowling attack, finishing with 85 runs from just 28 balls, smashing seven 4s and seven 6s along the way. Matt Short fought hard, hitting 74 from 44, but he lacked batting partners to assist him with the chase.

Before their match on Wednesday, the Perth Scorchers have begun their BBL13 season without suffering a loss as they look to win their third BBL title in a row. Excluding their ‘no result’ match against the Renegades in Geelong, the Scorchers have secured incredibly dominant seven and nine-wicket wins over the Stars and Hurricanes.

On the other side of the field, the Adelaide Strikers have won one of their two games at Adelaide Oval, with their latest match being a loss to the Stars on New Year’s Eve led by captain Glenn Maxwell and all-rounders Marcus Stoinis and Beau Webster.

Strikers v Scorchers BBL top tips & odds

Perth Scorchers to win


Lance Morris to take 3+ wickets


Matt Short 50+ Runs


Melbourne Renegades vs Hobart Hurricanes betting predictions

The Strikers’ form of late has been mixed, while the Scorchers have not been beaten since mid-way through January in BBL12. Having suffered defeat on Wednesday, the home-ground advantage does not appear enough for the hosts to overcome this powerhouse Scorchers side. -188.68 for the Scorchers to secure their 10th win in a row is an incredibly safe bet at the leading betting sites.

Up-and-coming fast bowler Lance Morris has the edge on the Strikers in the BBL having taken 3 wickets or more in his last two BBL matches against them. In Adelaide, the pace and bounce of the wicket will suit his natural bowling style, leading to batters miss-timing shots to fielders, or missing the ball altogether. +460 with top cricket bookmakers is incredible value for Morris to take 3+ wickets again against the Strikers.

Scorchers captain Aaron Hardie’s incredible run of form continues, scoring 30+ runs in each of his last three BBL matches. Although he struggled to score quickly on Wednesday, his height and reach will assist in scoring at the Adelaide Oval. Hardie can score all around the ground in various scenarios and is another safe bet to score 25+ runs at -149.25 with Neds.

Despite captaining a struggling side, Matt Short’s form with the bat has been arguably the best in the competition. In four of his last five BBL matches, the opener has scored 50+ runs in those innings, leading the side with his experience. At his home ground, Short is a great value bet to score 50+ runs again at +250 with Playup.
