Perth Scorchers will lock horns with Melbourne Stars in the 27th Match of the Big Bash League 2021 as Perth Stadium in Perth will host this fixture. Scorchers have had an exceptional run in the tournament so far and are currently sitting on the top of the points table with 21 points with a healthy run rate of +1.673. They have won six of seven matches they have played so far and are currently in lethal form in the tournament.
However, they suffered a heavy loss in the last fixture against Sydney Thunder which put a halt to their winning momentum. In the last fixture batting, first Thunders posted a mammoth target of 200 Runs at the end of 20 overs. Their bowling department led by Matthew Kelly who took three scalps provided a good start after dismissing the openers cheaply but leaked plenty of runs in the final overs.
In the second innings, the top order failed completely while Colin Munro put up a fight scoring unbeaten 64* off 43 balls and Andrew Tye added 44 Runs on board but their efforts went in vain as other batters failed to score. In the current fixture, they will be looking for a comeback after rectifying mistakes of the past as they have the potential to come on top of any side on any given day.

SCO vs STA, Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Perth Scorchers is expected to win against Melbourne Stars.
It has been a dream run for the Scorchers so far as they have emerged on top of every team they met in the tournament so far. With the likes of Colin Munro and Bancroft in form, their batting unit can chase or post-high totals on the board on any given day. However, after losing their last match to Thunder they will be looking to carry on the same winning momentum in this fixture as well.
On the other hand, the Stars batters completely annihilated the Brisbane bowling attack in their last fixture. Both teams are a strong side on paper with hard hitters and match winners and in the past encounters, both have two equal numbers of wins. But Scorchers are the favorite to win this fixture given the consistency they have shown so far in the tournament with consecutive wins from the beginning.
Popular Betting Odds For SCO vs STA, Match 27, Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsmen for Perth Scorchers- Colin Munro (4.33)
Munro has earned a reputation as one of Scorchers’ most reliable big hitters. He is currently the highest run-getter for Scorchers and has scored 268 Runs in seven matches including a massive high score of 114* Runs in the last match against Strikers. While his unbeaten knock of 64 Runs in the last match against the Thunder went in vain but a player of such caliber certainly can’t be missed.

He is an all-rounder whose abilities continue to rise after putting together a number of superb seasons. Stoinis has become a vital member of the Stars team and a fan favorite with 2202 Runs in 79 BBL matches. He also has 36 scalps to his name and can prove to be a gripping bowler in the powerplay. So far this season he has contributed just 65 Runs in 5 matches and got out on a duck in the last match. He will be looking to improve these figures and score big with his return to the Stars in this contest.
Top Bowler for Perth Scorchers– Andrew Tye (3.25)
Andrew Tye’s performance was disappointing in the last match against Thunders where he took just one wicket while leaking too many runs in just a single over he bowled. But the fact cannot be neglected, that he is currently the leading wicket-taker this season. He will surely make a comeback with his magical spell in this contest and could prove to be a fruitful pick for good returns.
Top Bowler for Melbourne Stars- Nathan Coulter-Nile (3.75)
