Most teams fighting in the Big Bash League, 2014-15, have played half a dozen matches but a few of them are doing well while the others are struggling for their survival. Hobart Hurricanes beat Sydney Thunder in their previous game by a margin of five wickets and that was their third win out of six matches. Perth Scorchers grabbed their fourth victory of the event while defeating Brisbane Heat by a big difference of eight wickets. The forthcoming game of the tournament will be played between Hobart Hurricanes and Perth Scorchers that will be an interesting one to watch.
Michael Hill and Ben Dunk scored 24 and 22 runs for Hobart Hurricanes vs. Sydney Thunder while chasing a small target of 82 runs. George Bailey along with Jonathan Wells are batting superbly and the inclusion of all-rounder Shoaib Malik will be vital for the side. Jake Reed was the star performer with four wickets while Cameron Boyce and Ben Hilfenhaus are keeping their promise.
Michael Carberry smashed a match winning unbeaten innings of 77 for Perth Scorchers against Brisbane Heat and Adam Voges secured his end with 35. Michael Klinger and Marcus Haris are the other two batsmen who are batting fluently whereas Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye, Ashton Agar and Yasir Arafat are looking after their bowling affairs.
