They would look to continue the winning momentum. Adelaide opener, Mathew Short played terrific knocks in both games at the top of the order. He gave a solid start in the last game, having managed to score 32 off 17. Short, however, would be disappointed to have not converted the starts into big scores.

Facing them are Perth Scorchers, who have made a winning start in the competition. The Scorchers played their first game against Brisbane Heat at home. A combined batting performance helped the team post 157 in the first innings.

Kurtis Patterson scored a sensational half-century off just 30 balls, while Ashton Turner played a notable 19-ball 29 cameo. Brisbane Heat too fought hard but fell short of 6 runs in the end.

For Perth, M Kelly starred with the ball as he picked 4 for 28. Ashton Agar too was brilliant in the middle overs as he gave away only 16 runs for just 1 wicket. Perth Scorchers have some wonderful bowlers and it’s going to be difficult for Adelaide to post a competitive score on the board.
