Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers Preview
The Perth Scorchers are without a doubt, one of the best teams to grace the tournament and with three BBL titles under the belt and their current position at the top of the table, there is a good chance that the Scorchers will bag their fourth title and script history.
The Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, have not had the greatest of seasons. Currently, they sit at 5th place on the table, and considering they lie at the fifth spot and tied alongside Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat with three wins each. Rashid Khan’s six-wicket haul over the Heat gave the Strikers a much-needed win, something the latter could make use of to build momentum for the remaining matches of the season.

Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers – Top picks for Dream11
The right-hander finds himself as a certain pick from a fantasy point of view. He is, by far, the only bankable batter in the Strikers’ lineup and whose performances become all the more crucial in the must-win stages of the tournament. The No. 4 batter has scored the most number of runs for the Strikers in BBL 11 (303) and we expect him to keep punching in the big numbers.
He has been a top pick, everywhere he goes for a T20 tournament, including the Big Bash League. In the last match against the Brisbane Heat, Rashid may have missed out on a hattrick, but he managed to grab figures of 6/17 to finish with 20 wickets at the end of 11 matches played so far in BBL.
The maverick bowler stands tall in terms of most wickets for the Scorchers in the ongoing edition of BBL (19) while averaging merely 16.94 and maintaining an economy of 7.95. Tye has been an absolute weapon for the Scorchers for yet another season, and he’s is likely to come up with crucial breakthroughs as the matches progress.
Agar’s been a fantasy favorite in BBL 11 with his all-around contributions on a consistent basis. So far, the left-arm orthodox has grabbed 14 wickets at an economy of 7.10, and with the bat, he’s averaged a modest 23.60 while striking at 145-plus.
