The Perth Scorchers have once again been the tournament pace-setter in the Big Bash League with a string of victories to start their campaign. They've been led brilliantly by the explosive Mitch Marsh who is in career best form.

The Melbourne Stars have had a more patchy season, but their best has been destructive and it has often come from less likely sources. Joe Clarke and Hilton Cartwright for starters have guided their middle order superbly. They will be keen to put their hand up as a threat to the top 2 in this clash.

Who will win Stars vs Scorchers?

Death, taxes and the Perth Scorchers having a good Big Bash campaign are 3 things you can just rely on, and the boys from the West are gunning for yet another title with a great mix of skill with bat and ball.

Mitch Marsh (averaging 83 in his last 10 innings), Colin Munro, Cam Bancroft and Josh Inglis have led the way with the bat, and the versatile pace attack, supported by the spin of Ashton Agar, has again been very effective.

The Melbourne Stars' reliance on Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell has been overcome with English import Joe Clarke having a super season. The spinning depth, led by Adam Zampa and Qais Ahmad, has also proven important.

This should be a great contest between a definite title contender and a team that looks like it might be. Here we are sticking with what we know and backing Perth to get it done.
