The Scorchers put on a brilliant display in their 49-run demolition of the Brisbane Heat in last night’s Challenger Final at Manuka Oval.
The win secured Perth a record sixth BBL Final appearance, with tomorrow night’s Final marking the fourth time the Scorchers and Sixers have clashed in the season-decider.
With a power-packed batting line-up stacked with explosive hitters, Perth are poised to continue their attacking onslaught at the SCG tomorrow night.
The Scorchers batsmen have amassed 97 sixes across BBL|10, the most by any side and 30 more than Sydney Sixers.
Perth have been just as fierce with the ball, obliterating opposition top orders courtesy of their envious fast bowling battery of Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye.
Speedster Richardson requires three scalps to become only the second bowler to claim 30 wickets in a single Big Bash League campaign, whilst Behrendorff has the highest dot ball percentage of any bowler to complete four or more overs this season.
Ahead of the Final, skipper Ashton Turner said;
“We’ve shown throughout the tournament our best is good enough to beat anyone, we’re looking forward to the challenge of taking on the Sixers tomorrow night.
“We’ve had some great battles with the Sixers not only this season but over our history in the Big Bash League.
“There’s people doing it tough back home at the moment, hopefully tomorrow night we can lift the trophy and put smiles on the faces of our Scorchers supporters back home.”
