After what has not been an ideal start to the tournament for the Brisbane Heat, having lost both their matches so far against Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers, the Jimmy Peirson-led side will not meet Melbourne Renegades on Monday for their third match. Melbourne Renegades at least have a win against their name after two matches, winning and then losing to the same opponent Adelaide Strikers in their two matches. Both sides are coming on the back of a defeat but at least one will go happy after this game. Who will that be? We shall find out as the action commences in Carrara.
Among the wicketkeepers, Sam Harper could be an easy pick in the Fantasy XI as he is not only performing the wicketkeeping duties but is also among the highest run-getters of the team so far. Ben Duckett is the other option who can be considered but he is not been keeping wickets. Mohammad Nabi, Will Sutherland, Jonathan Merlo and James Bazley are the proven all-rounders but here is the trick Xavier Bartlett has done well both with bat and ball and hence should be a safe bet in this fixture. Mackenzie Harvey, Chris Lynn, Sam Heazlett and Max Bryant are a combination of batters in form and those who will get the opportunity to play most balls. Plenty of bowling options to choose from among Kane Richardson, Reece Topley and Zahir Khan along with Liam Guthrie and Mujeeb ur Rahman, so place your bets accordingly based on the reading of the surface.
