Hobart Hurricanes vs Perth Scorchers BBL: Start time, how to watch live and free
The Hobart Hurricanes face a daunting challenge against the red-hot Perth Scorchers.
The Hobart Hurricanes' finals credentials will face a stern test against the in-form Scorchers. With a 6-5 win-loss record, Hobart are in the thick of the race for the five playoff spots as the BBL enters the business end. Hurricanes gun Ben McDermott is coming off a season-high 96 from 56 balls including a massive 6 that left Manuka Oval.
Perth (6-4) are in terrific form, having won 6 of their last 7 contests. Tuesday's crushing win over the Brisbane Heat featured a blistering innings of 82 from 54 balls by import Colin Munro. We could be set for some fireworks in this one.

The Scorchers were far too good when these teams met earlier this month, cruising to a 9-wicket victory. That lifted Perth's all-time, head-to-head record against the Hurricanes to 8-6.
Who will win Hobart Hurricanes vs Perth Scorchers?
We like Perth's chances of continuing their strong surge up the ladder. Their top four batting is imposing while tall opening bowlers Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff are good enough to play more cricket in this format for Australia.
