It’s a battle of the Big Bash in-form teams, with top of the table Adelaide Strikers travelling to Perth to face the Scorchers for the second match of Boxing Day.
The Scorchers are hoping to extend their home winning streak to five.
And they’ll be full of confidence in Monday night’s clash after their massive last-start win over the Melbourne Stars – where they posted the third highest BBL total in competition history.

Matt Short and Henry Thornton loom as the dangermen for the Strikers, with the Adelaide duo topping the competition for runs and wickets respectively.
The Strikers won the toss and elected to bat first, making two changes to the team that was beaten by the Brisbane Heat.
Jake Weatherald misses out with an abdominal strain and is replaced by Henry Hunt, while Ben Manenti has been handed his Strikers debut, coming in for Wes Agar.
The decision not to play Agar means he won’t come face-to-face with brother Ashton, who plays for the Scorchers.
Perth go into Monday night’s clash unchanged from the side that beat the Stars by 61 runs.
The second Boxing Day clash gets underway from 9.15pm AEDT.
