Match Preview

Both the teams, Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes have won 4 out of their 6 games in this tournament and hold 6 points. After losing the first two games of the tournament, Heat played some good cricket to win 3 of their next four, and twice they have posted 200 plus runs. Brisbane Heat hold the fifth position in the points table while Hobart Hurricanes are placed in seventh place.

D’Arcy Short, the run-machine for Hobart Hurricanes played his last match for the Hurricanes, at least for a couple of weeks, as he jets off to India with the Australian ODI team. This will change the team’s dynamics and the responsibility of other batsmen, especially Ben McDermott, will be increased manyfold. Along with him, Hurricanes will miss the fourth leading wicket-taker of the tournament Meredith along with James Faulkner due to his injuries.

Teams Preview

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat started the season poorly, losing their first two matches against Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars. In both the games, their batsmen failed to chase and could not cross even 150.  They registered their first win of the season against Sydney Sixers after posting 200 plus score batting first but immediately faced another defeat against Perth Scorchers in the next game.

Heat then bounced back and triumphed in their next 2 outings. In the game against Hurricanes, Heat posted the club’s highest total in the BBL (212 runs) and third highest of all time, to win the game by 31 runs. It was Chris Lynn who took the team beyond 200 in the games against Sydney Sixers (Lynn’s 94 runs off 35) and Hobart Hurricanes (Lynn’s 88 off 55). Playing against Thunder at Sydney, Heat smashed 119 runs in just 8 overs and won the rain-affected match by 16 runs (D/L method), all thanks to Tom Banton’s half-century (19-balls 56) and Lynn’s 13-balls 31.

In the last 10 games, Chris Lynn (308 runs) scored the most runs, followed by Matt Renshaw (261 runs). Josh Lalor leads the bowling unit with his 14 wickets in the previous 10 games.

Key Players - Chris Lynn, Matt Renshaw, Josh Lalor

Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes started the season with the win over Sydney Sixers. However, in the first four matches, their highest total was just 148, which was also the successful run-chase against Melbourne Renegades. In their last two outings, their batting was better as they touched 180. Against Heat, they scored 181 while responding to the record target of 213, while against Perth Scorchers, D'Arcy Short’s century (70 balls 103) helped the team win the match by the narrow margin of 8 runs.

Hobart Hurricanes slipped to the seventh position even though they have the same number of wins as Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers. While Mathew Wade’s inclusion will help the team, Short, Meredith and James Faulkner’s absence would hurt the team at such a crucial juncture of the tournament, while they can just hope for Miller’s quick recovery from the calf-tightness. The team’s success now depends on the depth of the bench strength, and coach Adam Griffith is quite hopeful about the same.

Ben McDermott (285 runs in the last 10 matches) is the leading run-scorer while Qais Ahmad leads to the bowling section with his 15 wickets in the previous 9 games.

Key Players: Qais Ahmad, Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade

Hobart Hurricanes Actual Playing XI:

Pitch And Weather Conditions

On the match day, the weather at Brisbane is expected to be partly cloudy. Daytime temperature can reach 30°c while nighttime minimum temperature is expected to be around 23°c. It will be dry with no precipitation and cloud covering 35% of the sky, the humidity will be around 58%.

Venue Details

The venue for the match is Brisbane Cricket Ground, Woolloongabba, Brisbane.

Toss Prediction

The average first and second innings score on this surface is 166 and 145, while the highest total is 209 by Australia against South Africa. The highest total chased is 161 while the lowest defended is 158. Out of five T20Is played here, 3 times the teams batting first have won. In this BBL season, Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder played a game here, which Sydney Thunder won by 29 runs after putting up 172 runs batting first. The team winning the toss should opt to bat first.

Winning Prediction

Though Hobart Hurricanes are ahead in the overall win-loss ratio (10 wins in 15 encounters), at Gabba, Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes are almost evenly balanced. Currently, Brisbane Heat have gained the momentum by winning two games in a row, while Hobart Hurricanes have to oblige at least three forced-changes due to the players’ unavailability and injuries. Without D’Acry Short, Faulkner and Meredith, they look much weak compared to the hosts.

Thus, we predict that Brisbane Heat will score a double by winning the home match against Hobart Hurricanes.
