Perth Scorchers coach Adam Voges has come up with a plan to help his team exact revenge on the Melbourne Stars this Saturday - sleep.
The Scorchers copped an embarrassing eight-wicket loss at the hands of the Stars at Optus Stadium on Wednesday night.
In one of the worst batting displays in the franchise's history, the Scorchers were skittled for just 86 in 13.5 overs.
The ladder-leading Stars chased down the victory total with 48 balls to spare, extending their winning run to seven matches.
Perth will get the chance to make up for that flop when they take on the Stars at the MCG in a rematch this weekend.
It's not unusual for coaches to subject their players to gruelling tasks the day after a thrashing.
But Voges will take the opposite approach, giving his players a much-needed break to help them recover from a torrid travel schedule.
Scorchers players only landed in Perth 24 hours before Wednesday's clash with the Stars after being delayed by more than five hours at Melbourne Airport on the way back from Hobart.
Voges wants his players to use the next two days to rest and recover, and is even considering cancelling the team's planned training session at the MCG on Friday.
"Sleep," Voges replied when asked how he plans to freshen up his squad.
"Keep them away from a cricket bat and a cricket ball. Get them home, be with your families, be in their own beds.
"Just whatever they need to do in the next 48 hours to be ready to go again."
The Scorchers have already voiced their displeasure at the horror fixtures handed to them, which has forced them to criss-cross the country all season instead of being able to play consecutive away games.
The heavy travel burden clearly took its toll on the players, who committed a series of brain fades against the Stars on Wednesday night.
The most notable was that of Cameron Green, who was run out after failing to stretch out fully to make his ground.
"I thought physically the boys looked OK but we made silly mistakes and decision making that I haven't seen throughout the tournament," Voges said.
"Hopefully a couple of good nights' sleep in our own beds and some fresher minds and we'll front up (better) for Saturday."
Stars opener Marcus Stoinis is expecting the Scorchers to rebound hard on Saturday.
"They've made some massive scores and they've got some players in some really good form," Stoinis said.
"Mitch Marsh is smacking them around the place and Josh Inglis is going really well.
"I'm sure they're going to come back and put a good performance on at the 'G but I think we'll be better."
