Perth Scorchers: The team which just failed to qualify into finals last season will be giving their heart and soul to win the trophy this year. They possess a well-balanced side to win the championship in 2019.
What more you need in a team if you have the best Captain in the world to lead. Meg Lanning, who has been an excellent captain for the Southern Stars will be leading Perth Scorchers.
Perth Scorchers have serious batters in their lineup which includes the captain herself followed by two English Players Amy Jones and Nat Sciver. The Aussie opener Nicole Bolton will be playing the role of an Allrounder who usually opens the bowling for Scorchers. Yes, Perth will be badly missing Elyse Villani.
Not only batting they have a well-balanced bowling attack too. They have Heather Graham who has an excellent record in this league. Nat Sciver, King etc will be taking care of the bowling attack.
On the whole, they may miss their star batter for sure, it won’t stop them from playing well, especially when you have a captain like Lanning. Scorchers are definitely front runners for the title.
