Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat
BBL T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 07 Jan, 03:45 PM (IST)
Series: BBL T20 Match
Venue: Perth Stadium – Perth, Australia
SCO vs HEA Dream11 Prediction:
- Josh Inglis has hit two half-centuries in the tournament and the keeper-batter is well worth backing as Perth Scorchers’ highest run scorer in this match. Andrew Tye has 13 wickets from seven games in this campaign and the pace bowler is our pick for Perth Scorcher’s top wicket taker against Brisbane Heat.
- Colin Munro has scored 233 runs with a strike-rate of 146.54 in the competition and we expect him to be Brisbane Heat’s highest run scorer against his old side, Perth Scorchers. Michael Neser has 10 wickets at a strike-rate of 11.4 and he is a strong choice for Brisbane Heat’s top wicket taker in this game.
- Andrew Tye has 131 wickets across his BBL career and we recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in this match.

Weather & Pitch Report:
There will be clear evening skies across Perth on Saturday with the temperature no higher than 20 degrees for the majority of the match.
Pace bowlers have had the most joy on this wicket throughout this year’s BBL. A par score will be no higher than 150 with spinners getting turn and bounce.
Most teams have won the toss and chosen to bat first at the Perth Stadium and we do not expect either skipper to choose to field first in this match.

SCO vs HEA TEAM NEWS:
SCO Team News:
Jhye Richardson and Aaron Hardie have both gone down with injuries and are expected to miss this game. Richardson, the Scorchers top wicket taker, will miss the next two weeks. Faf du Plessis has finished his BBL stint and we expect Stevie Eskinazi to replace him in the team.
HEA Team News:
As has been the case for the majority of the campaign, it is only international Test call-ups which have prevented Brisbane Heat fielding their best XI. Matt Renshaw, Marnus Labuschagne and Usman Khawaja are all playing at the SCG at the moment but Michael Neser is available for this game.

Brisbane Heat showed fight in the game against Sydney Sixers and, in Colin Munro, Michael Neser, Nathan McSweeney and James Bazley, have players in form. However, whether those will be enough to trouble the top of the table side remains to be seen. Perth Scorchers will be weaker without Jhye Richardson but will have an excellent team. They have slipped up in only two games so far in this campaign and we are predicting them to get back to winning ways in this match.
Perth Scorchers are favorites to beat Brisbane Heat
SCO Key Players:
Josh Inglis –
There was a top order batting collapse during the defeat to Sydney Thunder and it didn’t spare Inglis. However, he has hit 240 runs across the BBL 2022-2023 so far and will be keen to get back into form in this match.
Ashton Turner –
The skipper has been in excellent form with vital lower order contributions over recent games. He hit 61 runs from 37 balls in the last game.
Andrew Tye –
Only Sean Abbott has taken more wickets in the history of this competition than Tye. He is having another strong season and will lead the attack in Richardson’s absence.
HEA Key Players:
Colin Munro –
In the game which ended as a no-result on Wednesday, Munro continued his recent good form with 38 runs from only 14 balls.
Nathan McSweeney –
The 23 year old all-rounder has been very impressive with the bat in both of his appearances. In this match he will be looking to build on scores of 28 not out and 84.
Michael Neser –
The pace bowling all-rounder hit 45 not out before the rain came against Sydney Sixers. He did not get a chance to bowl and will be well refreshed in time for this clash.
SCO vs HEA Team Forms:
SCO Team Form:
The Scorchers had won four in a row before they were beaten by second placed Sydney Thunder by six wickets on Wednesday.
