Fantasy Tips of the Day
Of the 25 wickets that fell in the last 2 games, only 4 belonged to the spinners. The pacers, otherwise, have exploited the bounce to their benefit.
Daniel Sams’ bowling figures at the venue read 2 for 23 and 2 for 27.
Cameron Bancroft is the highest run-scorer (275 runs at 55) in the contests between these teams. In the bowling department, Jason Behrendorff tops the list: 14 wickets in 10 games.
In the previous game between these teams, Oliver Davies was the captain of the Ultimate Team for smashing 58 off 47, grabbing 2 catches, and inflicting 2 run outs. Meanwhile, with 61 runs and 2 catches to his name, Ashton Turner was the vice-captain.
Although Sydney boast quality all-rounders, their bowlers are thin on numbers. On the other hand, Perth has a variety of bowlers at their disposal, but their batters have been inconsistent.
