Perth Stadium, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Stars, 20th Match Preview (12/29/22): PRS vs MLS, 20th Match, Big Bash League 2022-23 – Live Cricket Score

The 20th league game of the Big Bash League between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Stars will take place at Optus Stadium in Perth. The seasons of both teams have been rather dissimilar thus far, and the Perth pitch has always been among the most difficult in Australia.

The defending champion Perth Scorchers have won three out of their first four games in the competition. It is safe to say that this team has some of the best bowling in the competition. Josh Inglis and Ashton Turner have both played some pretty solid innings for the team.

Perth Stadium, pitch report

One of the bumpiest fields in the nation is the Optus Stadium in Perth, and this was evident during the most recent T20 World Cup as well. It was clear that the Optus Stadium, where the pacers controlled play in nearly every game, was the hardest place to bat in the competition.

The match will also be played on a drop-in pitch because this location has multiple specialties. Here, BBL 12 matches have been played twice, and both times, batting was very challenging. The pacers were lethal and very difficult to bat against. Amazing pacers from the Perth Scorchers will take advantage of playing at home.

This field’s outfield is pretty quick, which will benefit the batters, and the boundaries are also not particularly large. The batters may play their shots on this track fairly easily once it is set up. Chasing has not been simple here, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to place a good target on the board.
