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 batting lineup was completely annihilated by the Renegades bowling attack in their last fixture. Both teams are a strong side on paper but when it comes to execution on match day the Stars have had an unfortunate run in their past fixtures.
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 353 Runs in 10 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.
Top Batsman for Melbourne Stars- Hilton Cartwright (3.50)
As a top-order batter, his abilities continue to rise after putting together a number of superb seasons. Cartwright has become a vital member of the Stars team as currently, he is leading the tally for most runs for Stars scoring 256 Runs in 8 games. His recent knock of 41 Runs against the Renegades helped his team reach a respectable total and is a player that can prove to be a fruitful pick for this contest.
Top Bowler for Perth Scorchers– Andrew Tye (3.25)
Andrew Tye’s performance was disappointing in the last match against the Sixers where he failed to conceive aby wicket while leaking too many runs in his four overs. 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- Brody Couch (3.75)
He has the speed and ability to light up the track for the Stars. The All-Rounder is capable of pinch-hitting as well as his blistering bowling pace to give nightmares to opposing batters. He is currently the leading wicket-taker for the Stars with 11 wickets in 8 matches. While Couch failed to conceive a single scalp in the last match against Renegades he is a player with exceptional skills that could make a comeback with the ball in this contest.
