Question in detail
Brisbane Heat VS Perth Scorchers, 23rd match of Big Bash League 2016-17: This is for the second when Heat and Scorchers will come face to face in the sixth edition of the tournament. The first clash between these two sides was a home game for the Scorchers, but to hosts' misfortune it resulted in producing a win for the visitors. Unlike the first game that proved to be an easy ride for Heat, the second BRH VS PRS match in BBL 2016-17 (23rd of the tournament) is going to be a tight tussle. Perth in their first game against Heat on January 5 suffered a 9-wicket defeat, thus getting dethroned from top of the table. Now, Brisbane Heat is the table-topper with 4 wins in 5 games.
When taking a look at the overall win percentage these two sides have shared mutually since the first edition, Scorchers without hesitation comes as everyone's favorite, the winner of BRH VS PRS match in BBL 2016-17. The two sides have met 7 times so far, and Heat has an average win record of 43%.
Sixers' last win over Renegades on January 9 took down Scorchers third on the point table. Scorchers are disappointed getting slightly down, but the next match against Heat could be an opportunity for them to regain the top spot. But given Heat's current form, it looks like a big deal for Scorchers to become the winner of BRH VS PRS match in BBL 2016-17. The other factors that advocate Heat's win are their in-form top-order, firing bowling line-up and high confidence they have shown in the last five games. Heat's opener Chris Lynn has demolished all teams in the ongoing BBL season. For his 309 runs in five games, Lynn tops the batting chart. So, much of Heat's chance to win depends a lot on how Lynn performs in Brisbane Heat VS Perth Scorchers, 23rd match of Big Bash League 2017.
Will Perth Scorchers regain the top spot on the point table in their next clash against Brisbane Heat in BBL 2016-17?
