Top Batsman for Perth Scorchers- Colin Munro (3.75)
Munro is currently the leading run-scorer for the Scorchers. The left-handed Batsman has hammered 335 runs in 9 matches with a strike rate of close to 137 including his unbeaten 114* against the Hurricanes. So far he has amassed 805 Runs in 28 matches during his BBL career. He is currently at the pinnacle of his form and will prove to be a vital player in this match as well. Munro is one of the most destructive in terms of sheer power and ability to hit big from ball one.
Top Batsman for Sydney Thunder- Matthew Gilkes (4.33)
Gilkes is in influential form with the bat for Sydney Thunders. He has played a few match-winning knocks in this edition for the former BBL winners including his recent knock of 93 Runs against the Strikers. So far he has amassed 225 runs in just 8 games. Looking forward to his run with the willow, Gilkes will be a player to watch out for and place your bets on. The betting players should go for a safe pick in this category and pick the top in-form batsman of Thunders, who has the highest probability to go for a demolishing knock against the heavy-duty bowling line-up of Perth Scorchers.
Top Bowler for Perth Scorchers- Andrew Tye (3.25)
The Australian has been exceptional in this edition of the BBL and is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament. So far he has picked 16 Wickets in 9 games with a 7.66 Economy Rate. Tye starred with the ball in the last match against the Sixers picking three scalps with a 4.20 Economy rate to defend a low total for his team.

Top Bowler for Sydney Thunder- Saqib Mahmood (3.25)
Mahmood is currently the second-highest wicket-taker for Thunders alongside Daniel Sams. Though the 24-year old pacer from England missed out on some games for his team earlier, he has proved to be an economical bowler with 11 wickets in 5 matches, two of which came in the last match against Adelaide Strikers. Here you can go for him to play a safe bet in this category as the Carerra pitch will definitely assist his pace and he is expected to pick one or two scalps.
