Match Preview

BBL 2019-20 has almost reached the half-way mark with the 25th match being played between Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat in what promises to be a mind-boggling encounter for the cricketing fraternity across the globe.

Brisbane Heat won their second match of the season against an equally formidable Hobart Hurricanes, courtesy the top-notch exhibitions from skipper Chris Lynn (55-ball 88*) and opener Max Bryant (36-ball 65) and will continue to forge ahead with the winning momentum at Sydney Showground Stadium.

Meanwhile, Sydney Thunder tasted a defeat in their last T20 against Melbourne Stars and is likely to render a solid performance in the upcoming duel. The previous match between the competing sides witnessed the Thunder squashing the Heat by a margin of 29 runs, however, one can't predict a similar outcome in the upcoming bout considering both the teams look potent in their second faceoff of the season.

Teams Preview

Sydney Thunder

Skipper Callum Ferguson (248 runs in 6 innings) and southpaw Usman Khawaja (168 runs in 6 innings) are enjoying a rich vein of form and be the vital cogs for Thunder in the much-talked game in Sydney. In the middle order, Alex Ross played an impressive 32-ball 40 in the last outing and is likely to opt for a similar style of play versus Chris Lynn's men.

In the bowling department, Daniel Sams (12 wickets in 6 innings) has been terrific in the powerplays with his variations in his line and length. The left-arm grabbed figures of 4-1-25-3 in their last match against Melbourne Stars and will be backed to come up with a similar display in Sydney. Chris Morris (8 wickets in 4 innings) has been lethal with his off-cutters and dominated the Sixers with figures of 2/24 in the recent encounter. Spinner Arjun Nair (6 wickets in 4 innings) has been effective so far and with pacer Nathan McAndrew will look to tear through the middle-order at Showground Stadium.

Sydney Thunder Actual Playing XI:

Alex Hales, CP Tremain, Daniel Sams, Brendan Doggett, Arjun Nair, Christopher Green, Chris Morris, Usman Khawaja, Matthew Gilkes, Callum Ferguson, Alex Ross

Brisbane Heat

Chriss Lynn (211 runs in 5 innings) and all-rounder Matt Renshaw (156 runs in 5 innings) have been getting those big-runs on board and will be aiming to take on the rival attack in Sydney. Opener Max Bryant scored a blistering 36-ball 65 comprising 10-fours and 2-sixes in the match against Hurricane and along with big-hitters Tom Banton and Ben Cutting will be banked to go berserk in the coming bout.

Ben Laughlin (6 wickets in 5 innings) has been delivering to the potential since the start of BBL 2019-20 and has been the go-to man for the Heat amidst nerve-wracking situations. Spinner Zahir Khan (5 wickets in 5 innings) and Ben Cutting (4 wickets in 5 innings) have been effective in grabbing wickets in the middle and death overs respectively. Left-arm Josh Lalor can wreak with his swing deliveries, making him a player to watch out for in the upcoming T20.

Brisbane Heat Actual Playing XI:

Ben Cutting, Zahir Khan, Ben Laughlin, Matt Renshaw, Chris Lynn, Jack Prestwidge, Josh Lalor, Mitchell Swepson, Jimmy Peirson, Max Bryant, Tom Banton

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Heavy showers are being predicted at Sydney Showground Stadium with sure-shot interruptions in both the innings. Bowlers won't have much in control as the batsmen would look to bash every delivery for a hit across the stadium if the DLS method kicks in.

Batters will be in advantage in the latter half as in case the play resumes, they will have smaller targets to chase. Clear strikers of the ball from both the teams will play crucial roles in the much-coveted encounter.

Toss Prediction

It would be ideal for the toss winning team to bowl first as there are strong chances for the rain to play a spoilsport in the coming game. Thus, the team batting second will have an advantage as the DLS method will come into play.

Winning Prediction

Although Brisbane Heat has had their share of ups and downs so far, they still possess the firepower capable of winning matches from crunch situations. With their current form, stellar record at this venue, and overall head to head against Thunder, one could bank on the Men in Blue to turn the tides in their favor in the upcoming T20.
