Hobart ran away with a six wicket win over the Melbourne Stars on Christmas Eve to make it two wins from two.
It was a big day at the crease for Matthew Wade making a half century, while Jofra Archer’s three wicket haul once again put the whole league on notice that the Bardados-born paceman is the real deal.
After opening as the outright title favourites, Perth’s start to the season has been less than ideal. After two straight opening losses, the Scorchers rebounded on Boxing Day to earn an impressive seven wicket home win over the Strikers.
For Perth, it’s all about Jhye Richardson. The 22-year old fast bowling phenom took three wickets against Adelaide, and he should be the deciding factor on a lively Hobart wicket.
The Hurricanes have only defeated the Scorchers three times in their nine meetings, and as the odds suggest, it could go either way. Stick with the Scorchers as their bowling attack starts to find form.
