Inconsistency has been a major issue with both the teams. Although, Hobart Hurricanes are currently in a better position than Brisbane Heat, latter is enjoying two-match winning streak. Matt Renshaw last-ball heroics proved to be a turning point for Heat in their previous face-off as the side won the game by 3 wickets.

Michael Neser picked four wickets in the game and restricted the opponents at a low total. Heat has shown great fighting spirit and with collective approach, they might add one more win to their name. As per our prediction, Brisbane Heat is likely to win the game against Hobart Hurricanes.
