Against Chennai Super Kings, they were 51 for 5 in the ninth over, chasing 158. Against Lahore Lions, they lost wickets in each of their last three overs as they stumbled through a chase of 152. Both times Kolkata Knight Riders won, and have extended their winning streak to 11 matches.
Scorchers weren't convincing in their last-gasp win over Dolphins, and needed Mitchell Marsh to hit sixes off the last two balls after they had managed to get into a losing position while losing only four wickets in a chase of 165.
As far as winning team is concerned...
Perth Scorchers won first game of the tournament against Dolphins from no where, thanks to Mitchell March heroics hits. KKR struggling initially in both the matches they have played but somehow managed to win the game convincingly at the end of the day.
Our experts believe that accident doesn't happen too often, and with KKR, its happening rather frequently. Sunil Narine is the key for KKR but all scorchers need one batsmen from their deep batting line-up to play well to beat the KKR side.
So, today our experts have decided to go against the wind and decided to go with Perth Scorchers in this game.
