Brisbane Heat, who are languishing at the bottom of the points table, sitting at the seventh position with four wins in eleven games have found some momentum. The Heat have won two games on the trot and have created an outside chance for themselves. The Heat will be up against Hobart Hurricanes in their next game and will hope to win it fair and square and move up the ladder.
On the other hand, Hobart Hurricanes suffered a defeat in their last game, against Perth Scorchers. The Mattew Wade-led team has won five out of eleven games played so far and are still alive in the competition. If the Hurricanes manage to beat Brisbane Heat on Friday, they will pip Adelaide Strikers to acquire the fifth position on the points table.
The pitch at Gabba is known for its bounce and carry. It is always an even contest between the bat and the ball. So, the same is expected during the match between Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat.
