After a catastrophic BBL|08, missing the finals for the first time, the Scorchers repeated the feat last summer. The most successful franchise in the BBL with three titles, the team is now hoping that new players will help it get back on top.

In fact, the Scorchers scored two big signings - England opening batsman Jason Roy and highly sought-after New Zealand cricketer Colin Munro. Their comeback campaign will be interesting to watch, to say the least.
