Stars name squad to take on Scorchers

13 January 2017

The Melbourne Stars has made one change to the squad that will take on the Perth Scorchers tomorrow night at the WACA.

Jackson Coleman has been included in the 13-player squad, replacing Seb Gotch.

Last time we played the Scorchers it was in last year’s Semi-Final that saw us take the win and move on to the Big Final. The game saw KP make a half-century and Franky Worrall take three wickets to help get us over the line.

Match Info

The boys take on the top of the table Scorchers at the WACA tomorrow night so get ready for one fiery game of cricket. You can catch all the action LIVE on Channel 10 from the Furnace at 9.15pm AEDT.

One to Watch

KP is the one we think the Scorchers should be looking out for tomorrow night, especially considering his form the last time we took them on. Making 62 off just 36 balls, KP top-scored with the bat and helped make sure the boys had a chance at the Big Final. KP has made the most runs for #TeamGreen this season and we think our game at the Furnace could just see him really let loose.
