Mitch Marsh has improved as a hitter in recent seasons and has proven to be a dependable performer in critical games. In the Scorchers’ last game, Mitch Marsh top-scored with 59 off 34 balls. As the Perth Scorchers’ leading run-scorer in this match, he is highly worth backing.

On Wednesday, Daniel Hughes made 59 out of 41 balls. The top-order batter is our pick for the biggest run-scorer for the Sydney Sixers versus the Perth Scorchers.
The Perth Scorchers finished first in the Big Bash League, but it won’t matter if they don’t go on to win the tournament from here. They’ve outpaced the rest of the league thus far, winning 11 of their 14 games. The Sydney Sixers finished the round-robin round of the BBL with three victories out of four, and with their 27-run triumph against Brisbane Heat, the reigning champions were able to earn second place on the ladder. In the Qualifier, the Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers will compete for a position in the Big Bash League final.
The Scorchers have been the strongest team in this year’s competition, losing just three games, and they will be confident in their ability to overcome the reigning champs after defeating them twice during the round-robin. The Sixers have lots of talent and will be confident in their ability to win, but the Scorchers’ consistency is impossible to miss, and they should be able to do the job.
