First timer? Want to brush up on your Big Bash rules? We put this together, just for you.
• It's a big day for the Scorchers, with the Club holding a post-match fireworks display to celebrate a couple of significant milestones: an unprecedented 10-consecutive sold-out regular-season games and the expectation of surpassing 500,000 fans having passed through the gate since BBL|01.
• This match is also potentially the last time the Scorchers play a regular-season match at the WACA Ground, with the move to Perth Stadium drawing ever-closer.
• The day is also a celebration of the impact the Women's Big Bash League has had on cricket, with an enormous rise across the country in participation levels among girls and women. The WBBL clash between the Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers opens the day at 1:30pm, before the BBL match against the Stars at 6:15pm.
• The Scorchers enter the match with a 4-5 record against the Stars, which is one of the few sides to hold a head-to-head advantage over Perth.
• There was a bitter taste in the mouth of the Scorchers the last time the teams met, with the Stars having triumphed in last season's semi-final at the MCG.
• The Scorchers returned to the top of the table this week with a win over the Brisbane Heat at the Gabba on Thursday.
