Keep an eye on…
Tanveer Sangha: With 15 wickets in eight matches, Tanveer Sangha has been the pick of the bowlers in his inaugural Big Bash League season. The leg-spinner might be a rookie, but has managed to stand out with his wicket-taking abilities this season for the Sydney Thunder. Can he keep the Scorchers silent?
TIP: Tanveer Sangha is the highest wicket-taker in the Big Bash League so far and have odds of 3.60 to be the away team’s top bowler.
Scorchers’ batting: Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Liam Livingstone, Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Turner make the Scorchers one of the strongest batting sides in the competition. The men in Orange have a powerful striking group and will be banked upon to counter a strong Thunder bowling to make a big impact.
