Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers
SGM: Scorchers Win/Tye 2+ Wickets ($2.91)

The Big Bash takes place early today and we’re set for an AM start, with the beginning of the fifth Test between Australia and England dominating attention from midday.

The Strikers bounce back into winning form at the expense of the down-and-out Heat on Wednesday night, and the performance was highlighted by an incredible six-wicket haul from Rashid Khan.

They’ll be without the star Afghani for the remainder of BBL11, while they also face a huge rise in class here, and they’ll simply need to go to a new level.

The Scorchers have maintained strong and consistent form all season, and they enter this match on top of the ladder.

I’m sticking with the Scorchers and building out my bet further with the in-form AJ Tye taking a couple of wickets.
