The Big Bash League Challenger match is being played between Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat. After losing the toss in the match and batting first, Perth’s team started with a good start. For him, opener Cameron Bancroft and Liam Livingstone hit 114 runs in 11.1 overs for the first wicket.
Meanwhile, Bancroft’s bat broke in the 13th over of the innings. The picture of this moment has been shared by Big Bash League on its Twitter account. In GIF, Bancraft is shown pointing to the new bat, showing the broken bat. Explain that this is the same Cameron Bancroft who was banned for 9 months after the sandpaper scandal in South Africa.
Perth have scored 189 for one wicket in 18.1 overs until the match was stopped due to rain. Cameron is on 58 from 52 balls, while Mitchell Marsh is playing 49 runs in 28 balls.
It is noteworthy that the winning team of this match will play in the final with Sydney Sixers. Sydney defeated the Perth Scorchers in the qualifiers last Saturday. The final of the tournament will be held on 6 February at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
