Perth Scorchers are one of the most consistent teams in the history of the Big Bash League (BBL) but have been far from that image in this season. The 3-time champions have won only two games this season from the seven they played thus far. Their batting has found some momentum lately with the inclusion of Cameron Bancroft. They will be up against the Sydney Sixers at the Perth Stadium on Sunday. The Sixers currently stand at No.4 with four wins from seven matches.

Ashton Turner has been released from the Australian ODI squad and will be leading the Scorchers. The Sixers have included their new signing James Vince in the 13-man squad. Vince will replace his countryman Joe Denly who has been called up to represent the England team in the Test series against the Windies. Mickey Edwards has also been added to the squad in place of Lloyd Pope. The Sixers’ squad now consists of the Edwards brothers, Jack and Mickey for the first time.

Power Picks:

Cameron Bancroft added depth to the Scorchers’ batting returning after his ban. His scores have gradually increased as he made 2, 19, 24 and 59 in the four matches he has played thus far.
