Probable Best Performers for SIX vs SCO
Probable Best Batter: Josh Inglis
Perth’s wicketkeeper-batter Josh Inglis has been in some fine form with the bat as he has amassed 313 runs in 10 matches thus far. Adding to this, he is among the leading run getters in the top-tier league and will look to get the vital runs for his side when they face Sydney Sixers in their next outing.
Probable Best Bowler: Andrew Tye
Tye is the leading wicket taker in the league with 20 wickets under his belt in 10 outings. The pacer has shown that he can restrict the rival batting line-up from hitting the big runs and adding to this, he can also get the breakthroughs in the crunch moments of the game.
