January 24: Perth Scorchers v Adelaide Strikers in Perth

Our XI: Josh Inglis, Liam Livingstone, Jonathan Wells, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey, Jhye Richardson, Fawad Ahmed, Rashid Khan, Ashton Agar, Chris Jordan, Wes Agar

NOTE: We might not always be able to tip you off about late injury (or other relevant) updates.

Captain: Mitchell Marsh

Marsh has been very good at home in Perth. Barring one game, Marsh has scored consistently - 223 runs from 121 balls at a strike rate of 184 and average of 40.55. Scorchers's hopes lie with Marsh and it's a good time to keep him as your captain.

Vice-captain: Rashid Khan

The last time these two teams met, Khan changed the game with the wickets of the openers off consecutive balls to help the Strikers win. The Scorchers do struggle against spin and Khan is the perfect man to exploit the weakness.

Hot picks

Josh Inglis

Inglis has 382 runs at a strike rate of 155.28. He is the highest run-getter for the Scorchers and his starts - along with Livingstone - is the key for the Scorchers. Inglis is a value pick as he is the in-form player and good at home.

Wes Agar

The in-form bowler with eight wickets form the last three games, Agar could be a hot pick against the Scorchers; he did pick 2 for 36 the last time these two teams met. Agar is the third-highest wicket-taker for the Strikers and could be a useful pick.

Value buys

Jonathan Wells: You don't talk about him much, but Wells has been the Strikers' best batsmen. He has scored 406 runs from 11 innings at a strike rate of 133.99 and averages 81.20. He is hard to dismiss and has been very consistent - only one single-digit score in the last ten innings.

Fawad Ahmed: Ahmed has been one of the best spinners in the competition, with 14 wickets so far at an economy of 7. He has gone wicketless in only one game in the last 11 matches. He is up against a team that plays spin well and it will be a good contest.

Points to note

The average first-innings score in Perth is 167. Pace bowlers have an economy of 8.9 while the spinners go at 7.5.
