In the Qualifier on Saturday night, the Perth Scorchers will play host to the Sydney Sixers, and the winner will automatically qualify for the Final the following weekend.

The loser will still have a chance to win Thursday’s Challenger instead of being eliminated right away.

The speed pair of Matt Kelly and Jhye Richardson will not be playing for the Scorchers due to injury, and spinner Ashton Agar will not be eligible for selection as he gears up for the forthcoming Test trip of India.

The fact that paceman David Payne has the flu has made things worse for the lads in orange. He is presently putting himself through testing to see whether he can play.

At Perth Stadium, the Scorchers are renowned for being challenging opponents, so the Sixers will be counting on run-scoring powerhouse Steve Smith to extend his winning streak on the west coast.

Steve Smith is in red hot form for Sydney Sixers so Perth Scorchers’ bowlers will be tempted to remove him as soon as possible. So far, he has punished Adelaide Strikers, Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes, they all have been knocked out of the tournament.

It won’t be easy for Perth but if once they go through the middle order of Sydney Sixers, the rest of the task will appear easy.  Perth Scorchers have strong bowling arsenal, it is difficult to go past against them in any case.

But Aaron Finch showed that there is a way out of it. He took the charge and smashed Scrotchers’ best bowler for a 31 runs over and every one seems to be under pressure.

Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers is a big game, most competitive and highly rate game of the tournament. Everyone is expecting it to be a terrific encounter because both teams are always looking forward to dominate the game.

It is straightforward that Sydney Sixers is team that goes on with experience. Having Moises Henriques, Steve Smith and Dan Christian brings a wealth of experience and those guys really understand how to run the game.

On the other hand, there is Perth Scorchers. A team that is never gives up and puts team first in every assignment. They don’t depend on single heroes to win them games, it is always collective team work that brings them victory.
