Big Bash League T20

The east-coast franchises might have the big names, the big money and the big mouths, but Perth Scorchers have proven the team to beat year after year in the T20 Big Bash League.

The West Australians have played in every finals series to date, winning three titles since 2013. What’s more, they have done so with a squad that relies much more on local talent than on international guns for hire.

With Justin Langer now in charge of the national team, this is a new era for the Scorchers under long-time servant Adam Voges. Here you will find the latest T20 cricket odds, fixture lists, squad news and everything else you need to know before putting your money behind the BBL’s most successful team.

Perth Scorchers Big Bash odds and tips

It should surprise nobody that Perth are well liked in the outright betting for Big Bash 2018/19. Most online bookies have them pegged as standalone favourites for the title, so you are looking at +400 or thereabouts across the board.

Top tournament batsman
As ever, the national selectors could have a big say the makeup of Perth’s batting order throughout the season. That leaves Michael Klinger, who will be eager to focus on cricket and pile on as many runs as possible after a difficult season off the field last summer.

Top tournament bowler
Andrew Tye stole the headlines in BBL07 with 16 wickets in only six games, but it might be time for someone else to step up. Look for young quick Jhye Richardson to put his hat in the ring for a recall to the national team.

All-time Perth Scorchers XI

1. Michael Klinger
2. Shaun Marsh
3. Herschelle Gibbs
4. Adam Voges (c)
5. Mitchell Marsh
6. Marcus North
7. Sam Whiteman (wk)
8. Nathan Coulter-Nile
9. Jason Behrendorff
10. Andrew Tye
11. Brad Hogg

How do you whittle down such a successful franchise to only 11 players? Fortunately, many of these guys pick themselves – the Marsh brothers, Maxy Klinger and skipper Voges have contributed big runs year after year, while the seam trio of Behrendorff, Coulter-Nile and Tye is as good as any that has ever graced the Big Bash.

There are also some obvious selections from the archives. George Bradley Hogg was the most prolific spinner in the BBL during his five seasons with the Scorchers; South African star Herschelle Gibbs was a massive hit, smashing six half-tons in 16 innings; and WA stalwart Marcus North played a big role in the club’s early progress.

Perhaps of more note is who misses out. This is only Mitch Johnson’s second season in the orange, so he may yet work his way into the all-time XI. The same goes for Willey, who was terrific before leaving for England’s tour of India last year. Explosive openers Michael Carberry and Craig Simmons may also consider themselves unlucky, but that’s what happens when you are up against the best of the best.
