One of the better matches in recent memory looks like playing out between the Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers at the home of the former this afternoon. We take a look at Saturday’s (18/1/2020) BBL Big Bash 2020 match which is between the Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers. The Melbourne Stars go into the match as favourites but the bookies have it as a pretty even match.

The Stars have been nothing short of outstanding in BBL 9 and this really does look like their best opportunity to win a maiden title to date. Nearly every player has stood up to be counted and that has translated into nine wins from ten matches.
The Scorchers have experienced something of a resurgence leading into this match, however they did drop the reverse leg of this match in Perth on Wednesday night. It’s tough imagining them reversing that result in Melbourne.
