PREVIEW

Adelaide Strikers are set to host the bottom-placed Perth Scorchers for their last league game in the Big Bash League 2018-19. Though both the sides are out of the contention for the playoffs, they would be eyeing to end their campaign on a high. This match will be the second instance when these two teams will face other. Perth Scorchers won that previous encounter by seven wickets.

The defending champions, Adelaide Strikers have had a torrid season so far. They are currently placed at the seventh spot in the league table with 10 points to their name. The Strikers have managed to win five games and lost eight in their 13 league games. The home side lost their last match against Brisbane Heat by six wickets. The reigning champions must be eager to finish their camping on a winning note.

Perth Scorchers have had a horrible campaign so far this season, and they are languishing at the bottom of the table. The Scorchers could only manage to win three games this season while they lost nine league games in their 13 outings. However, they emerged victorious in their last match against Melbourne Stars by 27 runs. Perth Scorchers would be eyeing to end this forgettable season on a high.
