Perth Scorchers are favorites to win

BRH vs PRS prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Perth Scorchers will finish top of the 2020-21 Big Bash League if they beat Brisbane Heat in their final group game, as the Heat themselves need a win to reach the play-offs. The match, the first of the final day of league fixtures, takes place on January 26 and the live action starts at 13:05 local time.

The Scorchers moved top of the table on net run rate from Sydney Sixers in the latest round of fixtures, as Jason Roy hit a half-century in an 11-run defeat of Melbourne Stars. They had previously beaten Hobart Hurricanes. It was their eighth win in nine games – a run that includes bowling Brisbane out for 115 in a dominant victory.

Brisbane, meanwhile, were bowled out for 115 in their next game too – against Adelaide Strikers – but bounced back with a crucial win against Melbourne Renegades last time out. Marnus Labuschagne’s all-round form was key, as was a Chris Lynn half-century and Mark Steketee’s three wickets as they posted 173/5 and bowled the ‘Gades out for 147 in reply.

BRH Team News

It is difficult to imagine Brisbane making big changes for this game after their dominant win last time out. Marnus Labuschagne’s return has been a huge boost and he will be integral again.

BRH Key Players

  • Marnus Labuschagne: Back in Big Bash action, he proved his quality last time out with 49 with the bat and 1-10 with the ball.
  • Mark Steketee: Took three more wickets last time out to move to 22 in total this season – the most any Heat bowler has managed in a single season.
  • Chris Lynn: Hit his fourth half-century of the tournament last time out, as he opened the batting and hit 52. He now has 369 runs in nine innings.

BRH Team Form

Brisbane Heat were bowled out for 115 in consecutive losses to Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers but they are still in play-off contention thanks to victory against Melbourne Renegades last time out. Chris Lynnn (52) and Marnus Labuschagne (49) helped them to 173/5 from their 20 overs and Mark Steketee took three more wickets in reply as they bowled them out for 147 in reply.

Perth Scorchers Team News & Playing 11

PRS Team News

The Scorchers have hit some excellent form and it could be the same side that saw off Melbourne Stars that starts this game too.

PRS Key Players

  • Jason Roy: The England opener smashed 54 from 32 balls last time out to get back to the form that has made him so revered in white-ball cricket.
  • Jhye Richardson: The paceman has taken 26 wickets in his 13 games so far this season to lead the BBL bowling charts.
  • Jason Behrendorff: So consistent with the ball, he took 2-17 when these teams last met and has since taken 2-17 and 1-19 in the matches that followed.

PRS Team Form

Perth Scorchers have won eight of their last nine matches to make up for a poor start, and have won three in a row since their only defeat. After the loss to Sydney Sixers, the Scorchers bowled Brisbane out for 115 in a big win and then beat Hobart Hurricanes and Melbourne Stars. In the latter, Jason Roy hit 54 in a total of 182/4 and Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff bowled well to limit the Stars to 171/6 in reply.

Final Verdict

Perth Scorchers to beat Brisbane Heat at 1.70 with Bet365 and 1.61 with Betway.

BRH vs PRS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Inglis and Jimmy Peirson are both the same low price and, given Inglis has more than 150 more points than Peirson, it seems an obvious choice. 

  • Batsmen

    Chris Lynn was back with another half-century last time out, to justify his 10.5-credit cost, while Jason Roy was doing likewise for Perth Scorchers and he only costs nine credits. Colin Munro has 577 points so far, meanwhile, and he comes in at 9.5 credits. All three have proved time and again they should never be overlooked in T20 cricket, however. As Max Bryant is a bargain price at 8.5 credits too, meanwhile, it is worth getting that good balance of costs in..

  • All rounder

    Bryant’s price makes room for Scorchers’ duo Mitchell Marsh and Liam Livingstone too. Both have more than 400 points so far and both are good picks – albeit it is rare to see them dominate with both bat and ball in the same game. 

  • Bowlers

    Jhye Richardson is ten credits, while Mark Steketee is nine credits and both have been in excellent bowling form for their respective teams. Richardson has 865 points so far, while Steketee’s 22 wickets have added up to 660 points. They are the top two wicket-takers in the tournament. That leaves two spaces, and one of Andrew Tye or Jason Behrendorff should take the first spot, with Xavier Bartlett showing he can be a good option for the other – to complete the Brisbane quota – after his wickets last time out.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Jhye Richardson leads the BBL wicket charts so far this season, so he looks a good pick for captain for this game. With Mark Steketee in wicket-taking form too, he could be a good vice-captain.

BRH vs PRS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Chris Lynn. Colin Munro, Jason Roy, Max Bryant

  • All Rounder:Liam Livingstone, Mitchell Marsh

  • Wicket Keeper:Josh Inglis

  • Bowler:Jhye Richardson, Mark Steketee, Andrew Tye, Xavier Bartlett
