    Tonight's match up, the Thunder (2-4) host the Scorchers (5-1), which means there's probably more Mark Waugh tonight, yipee.

    The key for the Thunder is their bowling, which is good enough to restrict the Scorchers to something chaseable/restrict them enough for them to fall short.

    Will Ryan Gibson play? The great lower order batsman has had one of the worst BBL seasons by a player in history, surely Jay Lenton can slot in and allow Buttler to focus purely on batting?

    Meanwhile the Scorchers' David Willey opening experiment finally paid off the other night, meaning Bosisto or Phillipe are unlikely to slot in tonight.

    Yeah Vince is replacing Buttler which should mean Lenton replaces Gibson.

    Tim Bresnan would come in for Willey, leaves our batting rather short, again.

    Squads come out the day before a game. Bolded players are not playing (English are playing a practice od today ) Squads below:

    Perth Scorchers 13-player Squad:
    Adam Voges ©
    Ashton Agar
    Cameron Bancroft
    Will Bosisto
    Tim Bresnan
    Hilton Cartwright
    Tim David
    Mitchell Johnson
    Matthew Kelly
    Michael Klinger
    Haydan Morton
    Joel Paris
    Ashton Turner

    Sydney Thunder squad to play the Perth Scorchers:
    Shane Watson (c)
    Fawad Ahmed
    Callum Ferguson
    Andrew Fekete
    Chris Green
    Jay Lenton
    Usman Khawaja
    Arjun Nair
    Mitch McClenaghan
    Kurtis Patterson
    Ben Rohrer
    Gurinder Sandhu
    James Vince

    Would say Bosisto and one of Kelly/Morton won't play for scorchers, Thunder bit harder to pick but doubt Fekete plays. Maybe one of Patterson/Rohrer misses out.

    Kelly is fast-medium, Morton is left-arm orthodox.

    Scorcher's best hope is if Sandhu plays and is allowed to bowl 8 overs

    Thunder won the toss, bowling first. Vince not playing!

    Scorchers have brought Bosisto in for David, Kelly also playing.

    Bresnan is probably just as effective with the bat as Willey who wasn't much better than a lower order slogger and shouldn't have been opening.

    Probably caught it from Root.

    Strange comment since Willey top scored with 55 off 41 balls against the strong Renegades lineup
