In match 15 of Australian T20 League, Perth Scorchers are set to lock horns with Hobart Hurricanes on Monday. The match has been relocated from Perth Stadium to Blundstone Arena in Hobart due to new travel restrictions imposed in the state pertaining to COVID-19. As a result, the two sides are set to meet again at the same venue where they clashed a few days back when Scorchers won the match by 53 runs. While Perth would want to continue their 3-match winning streak, Hobart will be desperate to get their 2nd win of the tournament.
Among the wicketkeepers, Matthew Wade should be a certain pick as the experienced player has looked in good touch in the tournament, having scored 117 runs in 3 matches. Colin Munro and Ashton Turner are two batsmen who are an important part of Scorchers’ batting unit and are likely to be among runs once again.
D Arcy Short and Mitchell Marsh are the two all-rounders who can contribute with both bat and ball and can get some crucial points for your side. While Short has 125 runs this season so far, Marsh is coming to this contest on the back of scoring a brilliant century in the previous match against the same opponent.
Meanwhile, Andrew Tye is the in-form pacer and is a no-brainer pick considering his knack of taking wickets in death overs. Tymal Mills, who took a 3-fer in previous match, could be an X-Factor inclusion in your fantasy side. Jason Behrendorff and Joel Paris are two players who can also get some vital points.
