Highveld Lions, the runners-up of the previous edition of Champions League T20, will take on the Perth Scorchers from Australia in the second match of Group A of the Champions League T20 (CLT20) 2013 at Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad.
Lions will be led by Alviro Peterson, who has won the toss and decided to bowl first. They have in their ranks experienced Neil McKenzie, leg-spinner Imran Tahir, Pakistan fast bowler Sohail Tanvir and South African limited-overs specialist Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
Perth will be led by Simon Katich and they have in their ranks T20 specialists Adam Voges and Marcus North. The spin department will be taken care of Brad Hogg and giving him company would be the teenage sensation Ashton Agar.
Scorchers’ fast bowling department has three unheralded prospects — Liam Davis, Joe Mennie and Burt Cockley.
Both the teams would be looking to start their campaign with a win.
