The final battle of Perth-S vs Brisbane-H is upon us. Perth-S are in a strong position to secure a record 5th championship title as they face Brisbane-H in the final of the 2022-23 Australia T20 League. The Scorchers, who convincingly defeated Sydney-S in the Qualifier, have dominated their opponents in recent encounters, having won 8 out of their last 10 matches against the Heat, including two league games this season.
In their recent fixture against Sydney-S, the team secured a commanding 7-wicket victory. The squad also dominated against Brisbane-H in both league matches. A. Turner seeks to maintain fundamental execution and secure the championship for the fifth time.
C. Bancroft’s productive performance in the previous game will likely translate to a strong start, in conjunction with Stephen Eskinazi. The middle order receives a boost from the formidable pairing of A. Hardie and J. Inglis collectively amassed over 800 runs.
J. Peirson, stepping in as the skipper in the absence of U. Khawaja, will be tasked with rallying his team despite the absence of several key contributors who are currently with the national squad. The side impressed in their recent Challengers fixture, besting Sydney-S by 4 wickets and Peirson will aim to build on this momentum.
The key to success against Perth-S will be strong contributions from J. Brown and S. Heazlett in the face of the formidable pace attack they will face. The middle-order batting is a potential weak point and Peirson will need to set the tone with substantial runs.
