It’s a hat trick! The Big Bash League’s most successful and renowned team, Perth Scorchers has done a wonderful job by winning the tournament for the third time now. Their hard work and consistent performance have put them on the top of the leaderboard like always. Not only do they have the biggest fan base in the continent of Australia than any other T-20 team but also have one that has been growing since the first day.
In the first and second seasons of the Big Bash League, Perth Scorchers were one step away from winning the tournament, which made them the runner-ups. Nonetheless, their hard work resulted in them being the champions the next year, that is, 2013. Furthermore, they won it twice consecutively, which means that they also took the trophy away in 2014. However, due to the average performance, the team did not win for the third time in 2015. However, this rage of losing helped them win the next year in 2016.
The coach of the team, Adam Voges, has played the national men’s cricket team of Australia in last all three formats. Since the players of the team are the best players ever seen by the Big Bash League, Perth Scorchers are expected to do exceptionally well this time.
