PERTH S VS. HOBART H: AUSTRALIAN T20 LEAGUE, MATCH 37 | MATCH PREDICTION AND FANTASY CRICKET TIPS

PERTH S VS. HOBART H: AUSTRALIAN T20 LEAGUE, MATCH 37 | MATCH PREDICTION AND FANTASY CRICKET TIPS

In match 37 of the Australian T20 League 2020, Perth S take on Hobart H at the Optus Stadium on Tuesday evening.

After starting poorly, Perth S have finally found their rhythm and have won four games in a row. They are coming off a 17-run victory against Sydney T here and are looking in really good form.

C Munro scored his third consecutive half century in the last game. Along with him, J Inglis and captain A Turner played small cameos to take the team’s score to 185 runs. On the bowling front, Perth have been doing well with J Richardson, J Behrendorff, and A Tye bowling outstandingly well. They took 8 wickets collectively in the last game.

On the other hand, Hobart H are coming into this game with two back-to-back losses. In their last match, they suffered a 39-run defeat against  Sydney T. They are in third place in the points table with five wins in nine games.

Hobart H have a solid batting unit that has been quite consistent but the lack of form of D Short and P Handscomb is a concern. The batting did not click in the last game, scoring just 128 runs chasing a score of 167. The likes of B McDermott, D Malan, and C Ingram will hold the key coming into this game. 

Perth S have been perfect at home so far and will look to keep it that way against the visiting Hobart H. Expect this to be another cracking match at the Optus Stadium.

Weather and Pitch Report

The weather is expected to be clear and sunny during this game. The temperature will be around 26 degrees during the match.

The pitch at the Perth Stadium has been a terrific batting surface. It is hard and the ball comes on to the bat nicely. However, it isn’t a batting paradise as the pace bowlers get some good bounce and movement. Spinners have been very effective in the games played here. The average first innings score in the last four matches played here has been 181 runs.

All the matches this season have been won by the teams batting first. The team winning the toss should opt to bat first. A first innings score of around 180 runs should be a competitive one at this venue.

Key Players

  • C Munro has scored three half centuries in a row now : 50, 50, and 52. He has scored 237 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of 130.93 and will be the key player for the Scorchers with the bat here.
  • M Marsh has scored 187 runs at a strike rate of 142.74 in his eight matches. He has already played several match-winning innings coming in in the middle order. He has also picked up crucial wickets with the ball.
  • J Richardson is the highest wicket taker of the season at a super average of 10.47 and an economy rate of 6.43. He gave a match-winning performance in the last game, scoring 20 runs with the bat and picking up 4 wickets for 24 runs. 
  • D Short has not had much success in the tournament with the bat, scoring 141 runs in nine innings at an average of 15.66. As spin seems to be very effective at this venue, expect him to repeat his last match performance where he took 3 for 26.  
  • D Malan has scored 175 runs in five innings played in the tournament, at an average of 35. He has scored only one half-century so far and will look to add to that tally in this game.
  • N Ellis is the joint-highest wicket taker for the Hurricanes this season. He has taken 12 wickets in nine matches at an average of 22.66. He went wicketless in the last game at the Perth Stadium and will look to get back into the wickets column here.
