The Perth Scorchers was established in 2011 as one of the franchise team in the Australia’s newly announced Twenty20 cricket competition called as the Big Bash League. The Scorchers can be recognized by their orange coloured kit.
The team has been successfully captained and coached by Marcus North and Mickey Arthur respectively. Most of the home matches of the Scorchers are played at their home ground known as WACA Ground that has a capacity of 22,000.
The team has been made up of some of the renowned players including Herchelle Gibbs, Michael Hussey, Simon Katich, Luke Pomersbach, Paul Collingwood, Marcus North, Luke Ronchi, but is nowadays led by Adam Voges, Brad Hogg, Shaun Marsh, Mitch Marsh and Yasir Arafat.
|The Scorchers lost both the BBL||01 and BBL||02 finals at the WACA Ground, before capturing their maiden title at their third attempt, triumphing over the Hobart Hurricanes in February 2014. The title ended an almost decade-long wait for WA cricket.|
The club have also competed in three Champions League T20 campaigns, although they’ve never progressed beyond the group stage, despite an impressive 2014 performance where they won two games and pushed IPL pair Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings.
