With seven wins in fourteen games, Sydney Thunder is currently placed fourth in the points table while Brisbane Heat is stationed at fifth position after six wins in similar number of games.
While Sydney Thunder clinched close game against Melbourne Renegades, Brisbane Heat faltered against Hobart Hurricanes in their previous game. Let's look at the match prediction for the first eliminator of the Big Bash League 2022-23.
Brisbane Heat has a better chance to win the toss as they have been lucky twice in their last four attempts.
