BBL Squad Release Game 10

23 January 2019

Mitch Marsh leads the side

The Perth Scorchers have made four changes to their 13-player squad ahead of their KFC Big Bash League clash against the Sydney Thunder at Optus Stadium tomorrow night.

Australian players Shaun and Mitch Marsh and Jason Behrendorff return to the squad after the conclusion of the Gillette ODI Series against India.

Western Warriors paceman Liam Guthrie joins the squad replacing fellow left-arm quick Jhye Richardson who will remain with the Australian side for the Domain Test Series against Sri Lanka.

Sam Whiteman has a moderate grade quad injury that will require a rehabilitation period of 2-3 weeks, while David Willey returned to the UK this week to manage a left shoulder injury.

Aaron Hardie will miss this BBL match with a low grade quad injury and is expected to be available for selection again within a week.

Ins: Shaun Marsh, Mitch Marsh, Jason Behrendorff, Liam Guthrie
Outs: Aaron Hardie, David Willey, Sam Whiteman, Will Bosisto

The BBL Technical Committee has approved the following Local Replacement player changes:
