Perth Scorchers coach Justin Langer faces a difficult decision over whether to drop Brad Hogg or Michael Beer to bolster the team's Champions League seam attack against a power-packed Otago Volts tonight.
Hogg has taken 24 wickets to be the Big Bash League's most successful spinner, while Beer (16) is not far behind after becoming a deadly new-ball bowler.
But Perth captain Simon Katich indicated that one of them might have to make way for paceman Burt Cockley on a Jaipur pitch expected to be significantly more seam friendly than that for the first match at Ahmedabad.
That game against Highveld Lions on Monday night was washed out without a ball being bowled.
Katich revealed that part of the reason Cockley was not included, despite the pitch being green after two days under covers, was to avoid dropping one of the main spinners.
"Our two most experienced bowlers have been Hogg and Beer and they have been a big part of our success," Katich said.
"It would have been very difficult to leave one of those out because it would have been one of them to make way.
"(Jaipur) will be different - it will have a bit more pace and we will have to consider the balance of our line-up for that game.
"We bumped into the Mumbai boys before and Nathan Coulter-Nile gave us a bit of an idea what to expect.
"Hogg played there in the IPL too, so we have a bit of inside knowledge of the wicket."
Hogg may make way, given that fellow spinners Ashton Agar, Ashton Turner and Adam Voges will play as top-six batsmen, while Beer has become a specialist Twenty20 opening bowler.
Katich identified the increasing value of third seamer Hilton Cartwright and the experience of the South African batsman against pace bowling as other reasons to retain all five spin options against the Lions.
It could be different in Jaipur against an Otago team boasting T20 superstar Brendon McCullum and a host of players with international experience.
"The beauty is that we have eight bowling options in our attack," Katich said.
The Ahmedabad wash-out provided Perth with two points. Otago's opener against Mumbai Indians was also abandoned.
