STR vs SCO, 48th Match Preview
Match 48 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League sees Adelaide Strikers take on Perth Scorchers at the Adelaide Oval on Friday afternoon. The Strikers are in fourth place in the table but have lost their last three games. Perth Scorchers are top of the table with nine victories. Adelaide Strikers have hit poor form with the end of the group stage in view. They have only two matches remaining and face a very tough match against the top of the table side. It has been another fine group stage from Perth Scorchers who look to be on course to defend their title from the 2021-22 season. They are in excellent form and we fully expect another victory for them in Adelaide.
