Perth Scorchers won by 61 runs

MLS vs PRS Betting Tips

  • Joe Clarke is the only player to have hit a century so far in this edition of the BBL and the opener is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer against Perth Scorchers. With the ball, Adam Zampa took 3-27 in the last match and the captain is a strong choice for Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We are backing Faf du Plessis to be Perth Scorchers’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Stars. He hit an impressive 32 runs from 16 balls at the top of the order in the defeat to Hobart Hurricanes. Jhye Richardson has taken 13 wickets in his last five BBL appearances and the pace bowler is our pick for Perth Scorchers’ top wicket taker in this clash.
  • With his current form, it is hard to see Jhye Richardson not making a big impact on this match. We recommend backing him to take over 2.5 wickets.

STA vs SCO T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2022

Match 12 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League sees Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers go head to head at the Junction Oval on Friday afternoon. The Stars had a narrow defeat to Sydney Thunder in their first game but were very impressive in beating Hobart Hurricanes. The Scorchers beat Sydney Sixers before losing to the Hurricanes in their second fixture. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway in Melbourne at 15:30 local time.

Melbourne Stars could well be a surprise team this year with runs at the top of the order and plenty of bowling options. Although they will need all their top players delivering their best in this game to get another win.

Perth Scorchers came up only eight runs short in an exciting game against Hobart Hurricanes on Monday but they have a team full of experience and quality and will expect to get back to winning ways in this match.

STA vs SCO Match Toss Prediction

Most teams prefer to bat first at the Junction Oval in T20 games and we expect the captains on both sides to choose to do so if they win the toss ahead of this match.

STA vs SCO, Junction Oval Pitch Report

There is always pace for the quick bowlers but also turn and bounce for the spinners on this wicket. We expect a par score of around 185.

Melbourne Weather Report

Partly cloudy throughout although we do not anticipate any rain falling during the match. The temperature could get up to 25 degrees for the start of the game.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

STA Team News

The Stars will have the same players available for this game as for their last fixture with only Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns ruled out for the whole of this BBL. After the impressive performance against the Hurricanes, we anticipate the same XI at the Junction Oval.

STA Key Players

  • Joe Clarke - The English keeper-batter hit five half-centuries for the Stars in the 2021-22 BBL season and was in fine form striking nine fours and four sixes against Hobart Hurricanes.
  • Marcus Stoinis - The 33 year old batter has been in excellent international form but has been dismissed for two ducks and faced three balls in two BBL fixtures so far. He will be keen to get his campaign going in front of the home fans.
  • Adam Zampa - The skipper and leg-spinner should enjoy bowling on this wicket at the Junction Oval. He has conceded 27 runs in both of the first two games and picked up five wickets in total.

STA Team Form

The win against Hobart Hurricanes on Friday means that Melbourne Stars have now won three of their last four BBL games.

Perth Scorchers Team News & Playing 11

SCO Team News

With Phil Salt and Mitchell Marsh already unavailable for the entire season through injury, Perth Scorchers are also without the services of Cameron Green and Lance Morris for this match with the Boxing Day Test against South Africa approaching.

SCO Key Players

  • Faf du Plessis - The South African opener hit three fours and three sixes with a strike-rate of 200 against Hobart Hurricanes in BBL 2022. He is a destructive batter who could win this game on his own.
  • Josh Inglis - The keeper-batter top scored for the Scorchers in the last match with 62 runs from 37 balls. He is a very tidy wicket-keeper and will keep the fielders focused during this game.
  • Jhye Richardson - The 26 year old right arm fast bowler missed out on Test selection due to a slight injury at the end of last month but that has been the gain for the Scorchers. Richardson has seven wickets already in this campaign.

SCO Team Form

The defeat against Hobart Hurricanes in Match 8 ended a winning run of four matches for the 2021-22 champions Perth Scorchers.

Who will win Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes T20 Match?

The key contests in this game will be between the Melbourne Stars batters and the Perth Scorchers bowlers. Although Joe Clarke was in excellent form in the last game, Scorchers’ bowlers are the best in the league.

MLS vs PRS Top Team Batsmen

With the bat, we are backing Marcus Stoinis, Joe Clarke and Thomas Rogers for Melbourne Stars. In spite of his two ducks to begin this year’s tournament, the bookies expect to see Stoinis make a big score in this match. Rogers has made starts in all three of his BBL appearances and this could be the game when he kicks on.

For Perth Scorchers, Faf du Plessis, Adam Lyth and Josh Inglis are our batting tips. After a typically aggressive start against Hobart Hurricanes, the bookmakers are backing Faf du Plessis to top score in this game. Lyth has been very consistent in the T20 Blast and the Hundred over the last few years and a big BBL score is not far away.

MLS vs PRS Top Team Bowlers

Trent Boult, Adam Zampa and Luke Wood are our bowling recommendations for Melbourne Stars. Boult has the top odds with the bookmakers after picking up three wickets across the opening two matches. Wood impressed with figures of 3-25 against Hobart Hurricanes.

Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye are our picks to be Perth Scorchers’ top bowlers. Richardson has pace as well as relentless accuracy and it is no surprise to see the bookies tipping him for more success. Behrendorff has taken wickets in both of the opening games with batters struggling against his left-arm angle.
