Hobart Hurricanes will meet Perth Scorchers in match number 12 of the ongoing Australian T20 League 2021. While the Hurricanes had got off to a losing start to the competition, facing a defeat to Sydney Sixers, they quickly made amends to register a win in their next match against the same opposition in the reverse fixture which will give them a lot of confidence heading into this game. In contrast, Perth Scorchers have won both their matches so far and tasted victory in their opener against Brisbane Heat before the same result against Adelaide Strikers.
Analysis: Both the wicketkeeping options are slated to bat at top of the order, so won’t be a bad idea to include both of them in the Fantasy XI, if one’s chosen combination allows. What works in favour of their inclusion is also the fact that Matthew Wade and Cameron Bancroft have both been among the runs. Peter Handscomb, Caleb Jewell, Colin Munro and Kurtis Patterson next form a group of batters in form and also have the opportunity to face more balls. Munro particularly has been impressive along with D Arcy Short who is listed in the all-round sections. Ashton Turner and Aaron Hardie are the other all-round options to consider from. The best crop is the bowlers, also to be noted how the balance of the Fantasy league changes completely if one has picked the wicket-takers in the team. Joel Paris, Thomas Rogers, Andrew Tye, Matthew Kelly and Jason Behrendorff are among the most successful bowlers so far in the tournament but if one’s assessment of the wicket suggests spin could come in handy, Sandeep Lamichhane won’t be a bad inclusion.
