The second seeded Perth Scorchers will host the third placed Melbourne Stars in an epic encounter at the WACA in Perth on Saturday, Jan. 16, in their Big Bash League campaign. Match 31 of BBL is scheduled to go live on air at 6:15 PM local time and 10:15 AM GMT.
The match promises to be a blinder especially its the battle between two top teams. While Perth will be looking to go on top of the BBL charts, the Stars will be looking to seal their semi-final spot.
As per the ESPN Cric Info reports, the Stars did fail to register a win against the Brisbane Heat as Chris Lynn played a blinder of an innings to push to propel their chances in the league. Player of the match Samuel Badree took a five-wicket haul in his four overs to nail the Stars to the ground.
A lot of players are missing from the Stars squad as they have left the domestic season for the home series against India. Glenn Maxwell, James Faulkner as well as Scott Boland have left for National Duty.
Even the Scorcher’s last win against the Hurricanes demanded a nail biting finish. Darren Sammy’s late heroics failed to clinch the game against the Scorchers as they lost by just one run.
Stay for tuned for all the live action.
