Perth will prevail in ‘home’ BBL final at Canberra

That's not quite true, 13th, the reason for the reschedule is the ICC regulation stating all CWC grounds must be clear for two weeks prior to the first game, which is why all other grounds are out. The WACA also has two ODIs to come on Fri and Sun, and so it would have been logistically tough to get the WACA up for the Final on a few days notice, and then to turn it around for the ODIs.
