BBL 13 promises to be another memorable tournament
Can anybody stop the Perth Scorchers in BBL 13?
- Perth Scorchers have won the last two BBL titles.
- No side has won the BBL more times than the Perth Scorchers (5).
- Will they be the first team to win 3 BBL titles in a row?
- Manager Adam Voges and captain Ashton Turner are ready to lead the troops once more.
The start of a new BBL season does of course give every franchise optimism and once again for BBL 13, a whole host of side will be looking to take the crown from the Perth Scorchers.
Whilst there are plenty of sides in the mix for BBL glory, all of the biggest online betting sites are currently backing the Scorchers to go the distance and clinch yet another BBL title.
Will it be three in a row for the Perth Scorchers?
Following Australia’s incredible 50-over World Cup win in India, attention turns to the shortest format of the game, with BBL 13 ready to rumble.
Over the course of the tournament’s history, no franchise has been as successful as Perth Scorchers, and they are the defending champions heading into BBL 13.
As the campaign begins again in 2023/24, pundits and experts are asking if it will be all about the Perth Scorchers again this season.
Turner to inspire his side once more?
One of the key components of the success the Perth Scorchers have enjoyed in the BBL in recent seasons has been continuity.
Many betting apps have been able to bank on the Scorchers naming a strong starting XI every game and having captain Ashton Turner in their ranks is a huge part of that.
The Australian international has the ability to change the game with both bat and ball and he has led the team with aplomb since 2018.
Homegrown talent to get the job done?
Whilst many other franchises like to chop and change their roster, the Perth Scorchers have been able to lean on key players at key moments.
Captain Ashton Turner is joined by the in-form Mitchell Marsh, who is currently on fire for club and country, whilst in Josh Inglis, they have a wicket keeper full of confidence.
In the bowling department too, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff compile one of the most prolific bowling attacks in the Big Bash.
Plenty of eyes will of course be on the key Australians in the Perth Scorchers setup but Englishman Zak Crawley is a unique opening batsman.
His ability to tee off at the start of an innings is unrivalled and if he gets going, he could be integral to the Perth Scorchers challenge this season.
No side can compete with the record the Perth Scorchers have in the BBL and they will again be the team to beat in BBL 13, as they chase their 3rd consecutive title.
