The match of the day will take place in the nation’s west tonight and a key meeting between the third-placed Adelaide Strikers and fourth-placed Perth Scorchers. We take a look at Friday’s (24/1/2020) BBL Big Bash 2020 match which is between the Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers. The Perth Scorchers go into the match as outsiders but the bookies have it as a pretty even match.

The Scorchers’ slow start to the season is well and truly in the rear-view mirror and they now loom as a typically dangerous force in BBL 9. An easy win over the Thunder on Tuesday puts them in good stead to make it two in a row, particularly in returning home.
The Strikers have bounced back into form following a midseason slump and they look to be a legitimate title contender in their own right. A win here would go a long way towards locking in a spot in the top three.
Tip: Perth Scorchers $2.02
