Despite being the despised outsider at the start of the tournament, the Perth Scorchers  are the favourites to win the Big Bash at the conclusion of the regular season matches. Having won five of their seven matches in the competition, Perth finished on top of the ladder ahead of Hobart and the Sydney Sixers by way of having a better Net Run Rate. Their reward for finishing on top is a home semi on Saturday night against the Melbourne Stars .

The Hurricanes  will also have home ground advantage in the semi-finals after finishing second on the ladder. They will host the Sixers  at Blundstone Arena on Sunday night.
