With each passing game, Covid-19 tightens its grip on the Big Bash League, and the competition at the top of the points table tightens as well. With the Perth Scorchers leading the way, there’s almost little to choose between the teams in second and third position, respectively.

In the forthcoming match between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Thunder, things could take a sudden turn. Both teams have been in excellent form recently and should put on a thrilling show. The match between the two teams will take place on January 6th, 2021, at the Carrara Oval.


Perth Scorchers are presently on top of the points table with 29 points and a net run-rate of 1.254 after eight victories in nine games. The single loss they’ve had so far came against Sydney Thunder, the team they’ll be facing next.

After their match against the Stars was postponed, the Perth Scorchers have won their last two matches. The Scorchers, on the other hand, had just come off a surprising win, which may still be fresh in their thoughts. They recently defeated Sydney Sixers in a low-scoring contest in which they successfully defended a 143-run total in a hard-fought encounter.

On paper, the Perth Scorchers have a team that only a few other teams can match in terms of balance. Kurtis Patterson and Mitchell Marsh, for example, have been fluent at the top, which has contributed to their outstanding performance thus far. They also have momentum and will be full of self-assurance. They should be able to keep Sydney Thunder at bay, at least for this match, if they play to their full capacity.


Sydney Thunder did not have a great start to their season, but they have worked hard to climb into the top half of the standings. They are not only doing well, but they are also in a good position to finish among the top two teams if they can get a couple of results right in their next few games.

Sydney Thunder are presently in third place on the points table, having won five of their eight matches. They’ve lost three games so far, with the majority of them being close calls. They have a 0.653 net run rate, which might be a problem if things tighten up towards the end of the league stage.

A win here for Sydney Thunder will put them in a solid position; a loss, on the other hand, will relegate them to the middle of the table. The Hobart Hurricanes are breathing down their necks, and a loss tonight would reduce the Hurricanes’ one-match edge.

On paper, the Sydney Thunder appear to be reliant on their top-order, which has performed admirably thus far. Furthermore, Matthew Gilkes’ outstanding performance in their previous encounter would undoubtedly enhance their batting confidence. The Thunder have a formidable bowling team with lots of options thanks to the presence of dynamic all-rounders. Overall, Thunder have all of the resources they need to take on the Scorchers, and if they can play to their full ability, getting past them will be extremely difficult.
