SCO vs STA Dream11 Prediction, BBL 2019-20, Match 38: Preview, Head to Head, Form Guide, Probable XI, Top Picks & Best Dream11 Team

SCO vs STA Dream11 Prediction: One of the stronger sides in BBL 2019-20 and the hot favorites for the T20 title, Melbourne Stars would take on the three-time BBL champions – Perth Scorchers in the first faceoff of the season amidst the conditions of Perth.

Sitting third on the BBL 2019-20 points table, Perth Scorchers have won three games in a row and from the performances exhibited off late, they seem to have figured out the winning formula which could set them on the roads of galore amidst the home conditions.

The Scorchers won the recent outing against Hobart Hurricanes by a margin of 77-runs, courtesy the jaw-dropping exhibitions from wicket-keeper Josh Inglis (77), skipper Mitchell Marsh (40), and pacer Jhye Richardson (4/19). Apart from the aforementioned, the likes of Fawad Ahmed and Liam Livingstone have had a successful run this season, making the Scorchers one of the top contenders for this year’s knockouts, and subsequently the BBL title.

Meanwhile, table-toppers Melbourne Stars have been on a dream run since the commencement of the season. Led by Glenn Maxwell, the Stars have won eight out of nine matches overall, with victories in the last six matches. Marcus Stoinis, Sandeep Lamichhane, and Haris Rauf have put up mind-boggling exhibitions in the games played so far, and with skipper Maxwell leading upfront, one could bank on the Men in Green to light up the contest at Perth.
