Another quality BBL match will take place this Friday night when the Perth Scorchers host the Hobart Hurricanes.

Hobart sit comfortably on top of the standings after going 7-1 after its first eight outings, putting them a win ahead of the second-placed Renegades with two matches in-hand.

The Scorchers are coming off a big win over the Sydney Sixers, where they successfully passed the 177-run total with seven wickets in hand.

Cameron Bancroft was the star of the show against the Sixers after posting a terrific 87no from 61 bowls, proving he is still capable of playing at the international level.

Ashton Turner also chipped in 60 from 30, solidifying himself as one of the better batsman in the league.

What makes the Hurricanes the best team in the league right now is their diverse bowling line-up that has a solid blend of spin and pace.

Jofra Archer is one to keep an eye on during his four overs with the ball. With a solid yorker and pace that can surpass 145kmh, he can take multiple wickets and intimidate any batting lineup.

After what was one of the best matches in recent BBL history, D’Arcy Short managed to pile on 96no from only 57 balls.

He then bowled two overs, taking 1/16.

As the Hurricanes’ poster-boy, D’Arcy Short needs to play well each week in an attempt to break into the national team, which he very well deserves.

Last time the Hurricanes and Scorchers faced off, it was the Scorchers who tasted victory, but D’Arcy Short still made 34 runs and took two wickets, a worrying sign for the Scorchers line-up.

Scorchers and Hurricanes Betting Predictions

When the top of the ladder side comes to your home turf, there’s nothing better than knocking them off, but it will be extremely difficult for the Scorchers to do so this Friday without the pace of Jason Behrendorff, who is currently facing India in Australia’s ODI series.

Hobart have better opening batsmen than the Scorchers and also bat deeper, which means Perth need to bowl well throughout the entire innings.

If the scorchers are at their very best, they would still need to have luck on their side to beat the Hobart Hurricanes this Friday.
