The Scorchers looked on course for a place in the top two of the league, and hence in the Qualifier, but they lost two of their last three league games. Their final ball defeat to the Sixers in the last league game meant they slipped to third with the Sixers overtaking them into second.

The Strikers, in contrast, come into the match in prime form, having won their last four games. These wins have all been comfortable ones batting second – three of them came with at least 23 balls remaining. Adelaide will be keen to win the bat flip, as chasing teams have tended to fare well at Optus Stadium.

Another key determinant to the outcome could be if Scorchers can dismiss Strikers skipper Matt Short early. Short is by far and way the biggest run scorer in BBL 13. He has 509 runs and the next highest run scorer is Scorchers captain Aaron Hardie, with 328.
