 STA Key Players:

 Glenn Maxwell:
Maxwell is another batsman that can single-handedly win the match for his team. He’s a destructive batsman and is equally good with the ball in hand, He’ll be a key player in the match. 

 Marcus Stoinis:
Stoinis is having a fabulous tournament with the bat. He’s the fourth-highest run-scorer of the tournament with 370 runs in 11 games. He’s been very consistent and can be backed to have a good game against the Scorchers.

 Nathan Coulter-Nile:
Coulter-Nile picked up a 3-fer in the last match. He’s been in and out of the team due to injuries but in the limited number of matches he’s played, he’s been very good.

 SCO Key Players: 

 Colin Munro:
Colin Munro has been terrific in the second half of the tournament. He’s 4 fifties in the last 6 games. We’ll back him to play well against the Stars. 

 Jason Roy:
Jason Roy has been very inconsistent but he’s a match-winner on his day. If he gets going, Scorchers will be hard to stop.

 Jhye Richardson:
Jhye Richardson is in the form of his life. He’s picked up 25 wickets in 12 games and is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. He also picked up a 4-fer in the last game. He’ll be a real threat for the Stars.
