Perth Scorchers Team News

Scorchers will have a tough task in their hand when they will take on the table toppers Sydney Sixers in their next game and it will be called an upset if they manage to win this one. They are at 7th position in the points table with just 2 wins in 6 matches and even though they have struggled in the first half of the tournament, they’ve started to turn the things around with back to back wins. A hattrick of win for Scorchers will be good for the BBL season as well.

They have named an unchanged 17 men’s squad and possibly they’d go with an unchanged playing 11 as well.

Sydney Sixers Team News 

Sixers on the other hand, will go fully confident into this match after beating Adelaide Strikers and becoming the table toppers. Although they wouldn’t want to take Scorchers lightly. The defending champions have won 5 out of their 7 matches and comfortably sit at the top with 21 points.

Sixers too have understandably named a 18 men’s squad which will be trimmed to 13 at the toss. They’d expect a bit more from their captain Daniel Hughes in this game.

SCO vs SIX Pitch Report

The statistics show that this pitch is quite high scoring and the scores in the first game that was played here between Scorchers and Renegades proved it as well. The average first inning score here is 167 and teams have scored between 170-189 on 8 out of 16 occasions while thrice the frontier of 190 has been breached as well.

The previous records suggest that it is going to be hard work for the bowlers in this game and batsmen will enjoy batting on this track. Batting first teams have won 9 times compared to the 7 wins the teams have achieved while chasing so there is not much of a difference in this aspect.

SCO vs SIX Head to Head

Overall

Perth Scorchers : 10 wins

Sydney Sixers : 6 wins

Players to pick from both sides

Perth Scorchers

  • Josh Inglis : Inglis had a slow start to the season but he converted the start in the last game and scored a beautiful 72(41). It’s a familiar pitch so we’re backing him to score again.
  • Jason Roy : Roy although struggled in last match with 27(32) but he has had a couple of fluent innings before this.
  • Mitchell Marsh : Marsh has been the third highest run scorer for Scorchers this season. He has averaged 38 while scoring 115 runs in 6 matches.
  • Aaron hardie : Hardie has played well in last couple of games. In the last game, he picked up 2 wickets in just 2 overs.
  • Jhye Richardson : Jhye Richardson has been the best bowler for Scorchers. He has taken 10 wickets at an average of just 13.90 and when the match is on Perth, you can expect him to take few wickets with the new ball.
  • Jason Beherendorff : Beherendorff has been in and out of the squad on various occasions but we think he is going to cherish the conditions at Perth with the new ball here.

Sydney Sixers

  • Joshua Philippe : Joshua is the second highest run scorer in this season so far. He has scored 261 runs at an average of 38 and it goes without saying why he deserves a place in the Dream11 Team.
  • James Vince : Vince hasn’t been bad either, he has scored 181 runs in those same 7 games.
  • Jordan Silk : Silk is the second highest run scorer for Sixers at this point with 194 runs in 7 matches.
  • Daniel Christian : Christian picks himself in the team because of his all round performances in this season.
  • Ben Dwarshuis : Dwarshuis has picked up 11 wickets in 7 matches and he is a very safe bet in fantasy cricket.

Melbourne Renegades Team News

Melbourne Renegades looked good and promising in their rain affected last match against Thunder on 1st of January but they still couldn’t win the match due to which they keep relinquishing at the bottom of the points table with 1 win and 5 losses. They came with a refreshing ultra aggressive approach which worked for them too while batting but bowling, along with the rain interruption let them down again.

In the batting, Rile Roussow remains to be a concern for them, just like Munro is for Scorchers. They have not named their squad yet. We will update you as soon as they do.

Perth Scorchers Team News 

Scorchers finally got themselves into the winning ways after a comprehensive win against the Strikers on the new year’s eve. That turned out to be a perfect game for them both with the bat and ball but you can never tell if it was just the law of averages or have they got themselves a start now.

However, Scorchers would be worried about the form of Colin Munro who had started the tournament on a good note but has now gone downhill since the last 3 matches. They’d hoping he too can make a comeback in the match against Renegades just like the team did against Strikers. They too haven’t announced their squad yet.

SCO vs REN Head to Head

Melbourne Renegades : 3 wins

Perth Scorchers : 10 wins

Players to pick from both sides

Melbourne Renegades

  • Aaron Finch : Despite all his struggles, Finch has started to find his groove and his last two scores of 39 & 18 raise confidence into picking him for one more time at least.
  • Shaun Marsh : Marsh has simply been the most consistent batsman in this BBL and his 233 runs from 6 games at an average of 39 testify it.
  • Sam Harper/Imad Wasim : Wicket keeper batsman Sam Harper has been in decent touch even though he has failed in last couple of games. You can trust him or pick Imad Wasim at his place who has taken 3 wickets in the last couple of matches.
  • Mohammad Nabi : Nabi has been an excellent performer for Renegades in a very limited time. Even though he didn’t get any wicket in last game, he contributed with a vital 33 with the bat.
  • Kane Richardson : Kane Richardson has been the most reliable bowler for Renegades as he has picked up 9 wickets in 6 matches.
  • Peter Hatzoglou : Hatzoglou bowls quick and decent leg spin and has been a find of the season for Renegades so far with 7 wickets from 5 matches.

Perth Scorchers

  • Jason Roy : Roy started his BBL campaign with a meagre 21 but he soon found his mojo and went on to score 49 runs in the next one.
  • Mitchell Marsh : Mitchell Marsh has 108 runs with the bat an average of 36, while with the ball, he has been quite economical conceding runs at just 4.83 runs per over.
  • Jhye Richardson : Jhye Richardson picked back to back 3fers ( 3-30 & 3-19 ) in the last couple of games.
  • Josh Inglis : Inglis scored a beautiful 44 in the last game and showed he is back in form.
  • Andrew Tye : Tye hasn’t had a good BBL so far picking up just 3 wickets in 5 games but we all know his quality.

AUS vs IND Dream11 Team | 1st Test Australia vs India Match Prediction & Fantasy Cricket Tips

AUS vs IND Dream11 Team

AUS vs IND Dream11 Team Prediction : Having completed the limited overs phase which went 1-1 to both the teams, both the teams are now gearing up for the all important Test series which is also known as Border Gavaskar Trophy. This series is the most important series on India’s entire tour of Australia this year and so, we help you with the perfect AUS vs IND Dream11 Team to make sure you keep winning.

AUS vs IND Dream11 Match Information

Match Venue : Adelaide Oval, Adelaide

Match Time : 09:30 AM IST

Australia Team News

Australia must be hurting to concede the last Border Gavaskar Trophy at home and they’d want to get it back as soon as possible. They have got Steve Smith back for this series who wasn’t present due to the ban when the last time they played India in 2018-19. They also have a very lethal bowling attack consisting of Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood and Lyon which can create havoc over any good batting side and India will be well aware of that.

However apart from Smith, their batting looks slightly vulnerable. Aussies don’t have David Warner and in his absence, Matthew Wade might open alongside Joe Burns. Burns will be followed by Labuschagne while Smith will bat at 4 who will be followed by Travis Head and Cameroon Green at 5 & 6. Watch out for Green making the same reputation in this series which once Sam Curran did against India back in 2018 series. Captain Tim Paine will bat at 7 and will handle the wicket keeping duties.

Players to pick from Australia

  • Steve Smith : Smith is the number one ranked batsman in Test cricket who averages 84 against India.
  • Marnus Labuschagne : Labuschagne has emerged to the international cricket scene after the last Ashes, he currently averages 63 in Test cricket.
  • Josh Hazlewood :  A willy customer with the ball, Hazlewood has an awesome record in Adelaide where he has picked up 26 wickets in the 5 Tests he has played.
  • Pat Cummins : He is the number one bowler in Test cricket right now.
  • Nathan Lyon : The Aussie greatest off spinner ever, Lyon has enjoyed bowling to Indian batsmen in both Australian and Indian conditions. Just like Hazlewood, Lyon too has an impressive record in the Adelaide where he has taken 50 wickets in 9 Tests.
  • Cameron Green : Green can be a very impactful player in this series. He already scored a ton in the practice match.
  • Matthew Wade : Among the wicket keepers, you can go with either Tim Paine or Matthew Wade but since Wade will open, it will give him a longer opportunity to score a big total.
  • Mitchell Starc : Starc can also not be ignored even though he doesn’t find a place in our team. He has the best record in the pink ball cricket where he is the highest wicket taker around the world but the reason why didn’t we pick him is that he averages 36 against India which is substandard.

India Team News 

India have already named their playing 11 a day before and it has created quite a buzz on the social media. Pant’s exclusion came as a surprise but they have gone with slightly conventional method of ” safe wicketkeeper behind the wicket “. That gives Wriddhiman Saha an opportunity while Prithvi Shaw is set to open with Mayank Agarwal for the first time. Not for Mayank though, it’d be his second Australia tour.

India will miss Ishant Sharma in this series and in his absence, Umesh plays as the third fast bowler to assist Bumrah and Shami. Hanuma Vihari and R Ashwin will share the spin bowling load, it will be led by Ashwin without any doubt. India have lost their number 1 ranking to Australia and they’d want to start the series well to get back the top ranking along with fulfilling the purpose of retaining the Border Gavaskar Trophy.

Players to pick from India

  • Virat Kohli : There needs no explanation behind picking Kohli in the team. He is one of the best Test match players and his record at Adelaide Oval is exceptional. He averages 71 there.
  • Cheteshwar Pujara : The player of the series in the last Border Gavaskar Trophy, Pujara will be the main man in the series. With 531 runs in the last series, he will be the biggest threat for Aussies again.
  • Jasprit Bumrah :  Even though Bumrah has struggled with white ball this year, we can’t doubt his red ball abilities. He had picked up 21 wickets on the previous tour and will be the leader of Indian pace attack.
  • Mohammed Shami : Shami can be an useful bowler with the pink ball as he has ability to move the ball both ways.
  • Mayank Agarwal : Agarwal can be picked from Indian team too as he did enjoy the Australian challenge last time he toured there. He scored back to back 50s in his Debut series there.

Australia vs India Pitch Report

No pitch is easy in the modern day Test cricket and the fact that it’s a Day Night Test played with the pink ball, the bowlers would cherish bowling every ball, particularly in the twilight phase of the day. Passing showers are predicted on the couple of days but that’d not damage the playing conditions much. Bowlers will get plenty of assistance from the new ball and batsmen will get tested in this format.
