Brisbane Heat will take on Sydney Sixers in match 36 of the Big Bash League (BBL). The Heat are placed fifth on the points table, winning three and losing five. Sixers, on the other hand, are placed second, with six wins and two losses. The Heat’s managed to get back to winning ways by beating Hobart Hurricanes. They also ran Sixers close during their previous meet.
The Jimmy Peirson-led side just need to show consistency and start to string more wins to break into the top four. The Heat’s batting has been a cause of concern as their top-order batters like Chris Lynn, Ben Duckett, and Sam Heazlett have been inconsistent. While Duckett managed to get one big score, Lynn has not fired.
Meanwhile, the Sixers have managed to play well and have lost just two games. The Mosies Henriques-led side have found different heroes in each of the six wins. Josh Philippe, Sean Abbott, and Hayden Kerr have been instrumental in the team doing well. Henriques and Dan Christian have also done well as all-rounders.
The match is going to be played at Carrara Oval in Queensland. The four T20I matches played here have been low-scoring. The average first innings score is 126.
Predicted XI: Chris Lynn, Jimmy Peirson (c & wk), Ben Duckett, Sam Heazlett, Max Bryant, Xavier Bartlett, James Bazley, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Jack Wildermuth
