The Scorchers have lost only one game in the season against the Hobart Hurricanes. Sydney’s three losses so far have came against Adelaide Strikers twice and Melbourne Renegades Faf du Plessis is the most senior batter in the side. Alongside him, Josh Inglish and Cameron Bancroft are the two key batters in the lineup. Tymal Mills, Andrew Tye and Jason Beherendorff are the key bowlers in the side. The Scorchers have more experience T20 players in the side. The presence of Faf is a big plus in the side given that he has played a wealth of T20 cricket. A close comparison will prove that the Scorchers have better skillful bowlers than their opponents. Ashton Turner is leading Perth Scorchers.

Alex Hales and Rilee Rossouw are the key batters in the side. David Warner too is a part of the side but is not playing due to his national commitments. They have a slightly weaker bowling attack with no reputed overseas bowler in the squad. Sydney Thunder is being led by Chris Green another Australia all-rounder.
