There’s a few reasons why the Perth Scorchers just love to beat the Brisbane Heat…

“Boof (Darren Lehman) is one of my favourite coaches and he’s a great friend of mine,” Mitch Marsh said of the Heat’s new Head Coach and former Australian Coach.

“Our relationship was always very cheeky and tongue-in-cheek so hopefully we can beat them and I can get stuck into him which would be great.”

Brisbane are one game ahead of Perth in head-to-head’s in the KFC Big Bash League’s history, and they sit one spot above the Scorchers on the 2019-20 BBL ladder.

Then the Heat Captain, Chris Lynn, went and ‘stole’ the lead run-scorer status of retired Scorchers legend Maxy Klinger this summer and Marsh and the boys don’t want to give Lynn anymore airtime this week.

“Chris Lynn, we know how good a player he is and how dangerous he can be, he’ll be a key wicket for us,” Marsh said.

Finally, that pesky big-hitting partnership between Lynn and Brendon McCullum is no more.

“McCullum is a big loss both as a player and a captain… I’m glad there’s no more Bash Brothers, or whatever they were called!” Marsh said.

The Scorchers skipper and his boys in orange head to the Gold Coast to take on the Heat at Metricon Stadium on Wednesday 1 January.
