Venue: The Gabba, Brisbane
Pitch Report: The surface at the Gabba will help the batters set the tone of the match. The ball will come nicely on to the bat and thus, it can be a high-scoring affair. The team winning the toss should opt to bat first and anything above 200 will be a good score to defend.
Match Preview: Perth Scorchers have managed to retain their place in the top half of the points table. Although they suffered a defeat against Sydney Thunder which ended their four-match winning streak, the Scorchers got back to winning way against Brisbane Heat in their last match. The Heat, meanwhile, continues to suffer due to their inconsistency. The Henry Peirson-led side has suffered five defeats in eight matches played. Now, they will once again face the Scorchers who beat them in the last game.
