The Perth Scorchers had to take the longer route to the final as they defeated Chris Lynn-led Brisbane Heat in the Qualifier 2. Scorchers stepped up with the bat as Cameron Bancroft, Liam Livingstone and Mitchell Marsh fired to help them post 189 in just 18.1 overs in a rain-curtailed match.
Scorchers bowling attack stepped up in defence as the likes of Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye, Fawad ALam picked up 2 wickets each while Aaron Hardie picked up 3 to skittle out Heat for 150.
Saturday’s final is going to be an exciting battle between the two star-studded batting units. Sixers will be banking on their top-scorers Philippe and Vince get going on Saturday at their home venue. Sixers have an experienced middle order with captain Mosises Henriques, Carlos Brathwaite and Dan Christian capable of demolishing bowling attacks.
Scorchers will hope their bowling unit, led by Jhye Richardson who is the league’s top wicket-taker, will fire. The likes of Andrew Tye, Behrendorff and Fawad are key to their chances as well. Their top-heavy batting unit needs to fire to make sure their bowlers can come into play with a bit more freedom.
