The Scorchers are one of the teams to watch in this tournament having won the Big Bash League in style last season. Led by veteran Adam Voges, the Scorchers have a nice-looking lineup, with the likes of Mitchell Marsh, in terrific form of late, and Nathan Coulter-Nile set to star.
Perth are playing their third straight season in the CLT20, and all-rounder Marsh is confident his side can do a lot better than the last two outings when they failed to make too much of an impression.
"The Perth Scorchers had a great season last year and we have got a full strength side here now, all barring Shaun [Marsh] and Kat [Simon Katich] are here so we are very excited and hopefully we can get off to a good start tomorrow," Marsh said on Friday.
"We obviously had a poor Champions League T20 on both previous occasions. But there is a good feeling in the squad. We are probably the best squad that we have had so far travel for the CLT20 yet.
"All the young guys who are part of the side have experience playing at this level, so we feel we are more than ready now than ever. We have had a great week-and-a-half training hard so we are very well prepared and ready to put there out in the middle."
While the Scorchers have quite a few familiar faces in their lineup, the same cannot be said of the Dolphins, who, on paper, look like the weakest team in the main draw of the CLT20 2014.
However, having unfamiliar faces might work in their favour, as the opposition will not know much about the Dolphins, which might held them sneak in a few wins and even make the knockout rounds.
Signs of what to expect from this South African side will be seen in their first match, and coach Lance Klusener, who would have been tailor-made for this T20 format and ironically is the most familiar name in the squad, cannot wait to get started.
"We are looking forward to the tournament," said the former South African all-rounder on Friday. "We have earned the right to be here and as far as we are concerned, we have come over here to win this tournament.
"Our preparations have been excellent as far as we are concerned. Today is our last day just to ensure that we tidy up those last little pieces that were left out."
"We will be prepared tomorrow and will be looking forward to the opportunity to compete. We have got a lot of expectations within our team, so we are not too worried about the perception out there.
"We bring what we can bring and play to the best of our ability. We know that all will pitch in on the day and we all contribute and all 11 of us play good cricket, we are very tough to beat."
