Match Details:

Date: December 19

Venue: The Gabba, in Brisbane

Time: 2:10 PM (IST)

Preview:

Starting on a poor note with two straight consecutive losses, Brisbane Heat managed to secure their maiden win of  the campaign. However, Chris Lynn and Sam Heazlett were standout performers with their blazing 32 off 15 and 44 off 29 balls, respectively. But, James Bazley’s 3 wicket haul and a wicket from each of the three bowlers except Mujeeb successfully helped Heats to secure a win by five wickets against Melbourne Renegades.

On the other hand, Thunders started well with a win against Heats, but since then they have failed to register a victory in the season. Despite Alex Ross’ heroic with 77 off 49 balls, the teams failed to defend the total, and even disappointed with the bowling and could only clinch four wickets, before losing the game by 6-wickets.

Head to Head:

Pitch Report:

The Gabba will be hosting its first Big Bash League match and pitch is expected to be decent batting pitch, and if batters bring their A game, we may see a huge total on board. But pitch does provide something to bowlers too, due to which it won’t be tough for them either to mark their presence in the game.

Team’s Analysis:

Brisbane Heat:

Due to an all-round performance with bat & ball, Heat managed to secure their maiden win of the campaign. Bazley’s three wicket haul, Sam Hezlett’s 44 off 29 balls and fair share of contribution from other batsmen helped Heat to secure the win but they need to tighten their belt if they want to do something magical in the season.

Sydney Thunder:

With the last two disappointing outings, Thunder must be eager to get back to winning streak as the team is heavily missing consistency from its batsmen (except Alex Ross) and bowlers. Ross’ brilliant knock went in vain due to lack of contribution from other batsmen. The bowlers as well failed to defend the total.

Squads:

Sydney Thunder

Alex Hales, Sam Whiteman, Matthew Gilkes, Sam Billings (wk), Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green (c), Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha

Brisbane Heat

Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, Ben Duckett, Sam Heazlett, Tom Abell, Jimmy Peirson (c & wk), James Bazley, Xavier Bartlett, Mitchell Swepson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Liam Guthrie

Match Prediction:

Conclusion:

Both the teams are in search of some consistency in the game and one team will surely be disappointed after the game. But, the Gabba is known to produce quality cricket and fans will be hoping to see a nail biting match between two teams.
