In the 44th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21, Perth Scorchers will take on Brisbane Heat on January 19 (Tuesday) for the first time. Docklands Stadium in Canberra will host this match.

After having a disappointing start of the season, Perth Scorchers have regained the momentum back. But their five-match winning streak was broken down by Sydney Sixers in the last match. They are currently lying at the number four position in the points table with 21 points.

Here, let’s take a look at Perth Scorchers predicted, XI:

While chasing the total, Jason Roy has been too good in the ongoing season. In the low-scoring match against Hobart Hurricanes, he struck unbeaten 74 runs off 52 balls, striking eight fours and three sixes. It was the first fifty for him in six matches played. If he gives a good start against Brisbane Heat, Perth Scorchers will be in a dominant position.

Jason Roy’s countryman Liam Livingstone returned back to the groove. Against Hobart Hurricanes, he set up 123 runs partnership with Roy in which he scored 54 runs, the maiden half-century for him in this season. The side will only have the upper hand against top-notch Sydney Sixers if Liam Livingstone again sets up a good partnership with Roy.

Josh Inglis:

After being demoted from opener to middle-order, Josh Inglish has started churning out runs for Perth Scorchers. He scored the first fifty of this season against Melbourne Renegades. The right-hand batsman remained not out and scored 72 runs to set up 186 runs target. Inglis’s return back is a big positive for the team.

The New Zealander Colin Munro, who is playing in the BBL to prove his mettle to his national selector, has scored consecutive fifties before being our for 34 in the last match. He stitched up 117 runs partnership with Josh Inglis to put an above target for Melbourne Renegades. Against Sydney Sixers, he set up small partnerships with the top-order.

After failing in the previous matches, he has made a strong comeback and will have to set up more partnerships to take the game home.

Cameron Bancroft got the place in the playing XI after Mitchell Marsh has picked up a side strain during the match against Hobart Hurricanes. However, he can not do much with the bat. But as the allrounder will return after six days of recovery, Cameron will retain his place.

Perth Scorchers captain Ashton Turner is not having a great season, being out early and leaving his team to struggle. In ten matches, he has not even got a fifty. The skipper will have to play a captain’s knock when needed.

The pacer Andrew Tye earned a four-for in his name against Sydney Sixers in the first meeting. He got the two important wickets of Daniel Hughes and Daniel Christian besides sending the two tailenders.

Being in the eye of national selectors, the BBL 2020-21 is important for Tye to prove his case and earn a place in the national team for the T20 World Cup 2021. So, he will look to be more economical.

The pacer Jason Behrendroff, overall in his eight matches, has picked up only six wickets while his economy rate has also been the problem. Against Adelaide Strikers, he gave away 22 runs in his three overs and went wicketless. Against Hobart Hurricanes, he gave away 21 runs in his three overs but picked the wicket of No. T20I batsman, David Malan.
