Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes - Shaun Marsh man of the match

Cricket - Big Bash - 20 Jan 10:20

Shaun Marsh has had a few games off after the Ashes, he's priced up so it looks like he'll be back here. If so, there is a lot to like about his chances.

He was a surprise pick for the Ashes, but he proved his worth with 2 fifties and 2 tons in the series. He should have gained a lot of confidence from that. He's a streaky player, his test career has shown big peaks and big troughs so whilst he's in form he's worth getting onside.

Players coming back in from the Ashes to the BBL have done well so far this tournament. Khawaja came back in and immediately made a match-winning score. Bancroft shrugged off poor form in the Ashes to make good runs in the BBL and even James Vince managed a decent knock after his poor Ashes series. There appears to be no hangover from playing a long, high-profile series.

Marsh has dominated BBL cricket in the past, in 33 games he averages over 50. At Perth he's made 7 50's in 16 innings, so he's shown himself extremely capable of making consistent runs on this bouncy track.

The main danger in the Perth side is Klinger, but he hasn't really hit top form this tournament due to family issues.

The fav is D'Arcy Short, but the Perth attack have shown themselves to be tough to score against at the WACA (even with numerous international call-up's). The rest of the Canes batting hasn't shown much in general, and other than Jofra Archer their attack can be got at.

Even with those players missing, Perth are slight favs going into the game and he should have a big part to play opening the batting.

Price wise 8's looks a bit big. He's as short as 11/2, and is no bigger than 6's. Given his record, current form and the issues with Klinger this looks a point or 2 too big. Standard stake (Ladbrokes have a bet boost online once a day, so could boost the price up even more).
