Player to watch , Perth Scorchers.

Aaron Hardie

Aaron Hardie is going from strength to strength. He’s had a bit more of a taste of international cricket in the recent T20 series in India and was the leading run-scorer last year.

“He had that breakout season and he’s going to be a really important part of our setup. Hopefully we’ll see a bit more of him with the ball in hand as well this season, which we didn’t see a lot of last year.”

Jhye Richardson

“I think we were all really pleased to see Jhye back on the park and playing cricket and I think he’s physically in great shape and hopefully that means that we’ll consistently see him out on the park. We saw the impact that he had at the start of the BBL last season and we’re hopeful to see more of that and hopefully for longer.

“We all just want to see Jhye consistently play some cricket and if he’s able to do that, then we know that from a skill perspective, that’s never really been an issue. So if he can string together consistent games and performances then I think he’ll always be on the (Australian) selectors’ minds.”
