Perth Scorchers

The Strikers go into the game full of confidence after a strong performance in game one against the Stars. However I'm backing the Scorchers in this one. They're almost unbeatable at home and they've been the benchmark in consistency through the Big Bash.

Top Batsman

Michael Klinger is my pick for the top batsman. He's one of the most reliable T20 batsman in World cricket at the moment. He had a cracking competition last year, he will be suited to these condition and will be key to Perth's chances.

Top Perth Scorchers Bowler

For the top bowler I'm getting on the old boy Brad Hogg. He keeps getting better and better, this year will be no different. His changes of pace, good control and a wrongun which will cause a whole hope of trouble for the Strikers batsman. If the Strikers don't get the start they want they'll get very frsutrated by Hogg's control.

Man of the Match

The veteran Brad Hogg will also claim the Man of the Match award. The combination of Hoggie's wickets and dot balls will make it very difficult not to give him the Man of the Match. We all know the people who make these decisions are also influenced by sentiment.
