Fantasy Tips of the Day
Aaron Hardie (263 runs) and Andrew Tye (24 wickets) are the highest run-scorer and wicket-taker respectively at the Perth Stadium in this season. Tye is also the top wicket-taker for Perth against Sydney.
In the T20s between these teams, Ashton Turner is the highest run-scorer. He has smashed 460 runs at a spectacular strike rate of 149.
Although Josh Philippe has been blowing hot and cold, his numbers against Perth are encouraging: 352 runs at 35. In fact, one of his two fifties this season came versus Perth.
In the last six games, Sean Abbott has sniped up four three-wicket hauls. He has been one of the safest power players this season.
In the last 3 games, Steven Smith was the captain twice and vice-captain once in the Ultimate Team.
Stephen Eskinazi made it to the Ultimate Team in 4 of the last 5 matches, scoring two fifties and a thirty.
In the last 3 games at the venue, as many as 43 sixes were plundered and 22 of 34 wickets belonged to pacers.
