Stars opener primed for big impact
Scorchers v Stars
BT Sport 2 & Channel 5, 10.15am Saturday
A mouthwatering fixture in the Big Bash sees Perth Scorchers take on Melbourne Stars and the Scorchers are 4-5 favourites to claim a fifth win in seven games.
Stars opener Rob Quiney, who loves the razzmatazz of the Bash, has been in cracking form this season and is value at 7-2 to top-score.
He made 31 in the Stars’ nervy victory over the Strikers last time out – just one run fewer than Kevin Pietersen and tailender
Ben Hilfenhaus, who dead-heated for top-runscorer honours in a low-scoring clash.
Quiney’s runs against the Strikers came off just 17 balls with six boundaries while his other two innings were 51 off 30 deliveries against the Renegades and a brutal knock of 75 against Hobart Hurricanes.
Michael Klinger, who made 81 of 156 in the Scorchers’ win over Brisbane Heat last time out, is 11-4 to top-score again.
