In the 12th match of the ongoing Big Bash tournament, the two teams playing against each other will be Hobart Hurricanes vs the Perth Scorchers at the Bellerive Oval stadium this Tuesday the 14th of December.
The Hobart Hurricanes have only won two of their total matches played in the tournament. They lost the first game against the Sydney Sixers by a mere 14 runs. In their second game, they played and beat the Sydney Sixers 44 runs in a rain-curtailed match.
The two top batters for the match were Peter Handscomb and Caleb Jewell who were impressive in the tournament openers. Mathew Wade was the skipper who laid the foundation for the match when he smashed the Sixers bowlers all around the venue. He managed to score a cool 93 Off just 46 balls and managed to set his team off with a sensational kickoff. He was supported by D’Arcy Short and finally, a cameo from Called Jewell managed to help the team post a 213 in their 20 overs. Nathan Ellis and Tom Rogers were the match’s wreckers in chief.
Joel Paris starred with the ball for the Hurricanes, picking up three wickets as they restricted the Sixers to 151, winning the game by 44 runs. Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, have started their campaign brilliantly. They have played two games and won both. They defeated Brisbane Heat in their opening game and followed it up by beating Adelaide Strikers in their next game.
After electing to bat first, Colin Munro displayed a batting masterclass at the top of the order as he smashed a brilliant century against the Strikers. He remained unbeaten on 114 as the Scorchers scored 195 in their 20 overs. The bowlers then stepped up and backed up their bowlers to knock over the Strikers on 146. Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye each picked up three wickets as they broke the back of the Striker’s batting lineup. They won the game by 49 runs and will be filled with confidence.
Both sides have won their previous games and will be eager to carry forward the winning momentum. Both sides will come out all guns blazing on Tuesday, and it promises to be a cracker of a contest.
