Perth Scorchers are set to host the Hobart Hurricanes at Perth Stadium for another epic encounter in the Big Bash league. Both the teams will face off each other for the second time this season. Hobart Hurricanes emerged victorious in that match by six wickets at Aurora Stadium, Launceston.

The hosts have kept their semi-final hopes alive with two wins in a row against the Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers. They have only managed three win in their eight league games. Currently, they are placed at the second last spot in the points table. Scorchers need to win their rest of the games to stay alive in the contest. Scorchers have released a 13-man squad, Ashton Agar and Nick Hobson will feature in the team.

Hobart Hurricanes, on the other hand, are comfortably placed at top of the ladder with six wins in seven matches. They would be back in their zone after winning their last game against Melbourne Stars by 59 runs. Hurricanes would be eyeing to take the Scorchers down for the second time in this tournament.
