Brisbane Heat v Hobart Hurricanes – Match Preview

These sides are at opposite ends of the table after very different starts to this year’s tournament.

The Hurricanes bounced back quickly from their only defeat so far when beating the Renegades last time up.

The Heat gave themselves a chance against the Strikers in their last fixture but fell short when chasing an achievable target.

Where: The Gabba, Brisbane

When: Sunday, 27 December 2020

Start time: 13:45 IST (08:15 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The pitch is likely to be more helpful to pace bowlers early in the game. The shorter boundaries at the Gabba do mean spinners can go for runs if they don’t get it right. Batting second should be prefered.

Weather conditions: It is a bright day in Brisbane with no rain expected. Some cloud cover may develop but nothing more than that.

Brisbane Heat v Hobart Hurricanes – Team News

Brisbane are without Australia pair Marnus Labuschagne and Joe Burns due to the Test series with India.

The Heat still don’t have the services of Joe Denly until January after he was signed to replace countryman Tom Banton.

Captain Chris Lynn missed the last game after picking up an injury in the warm-up. He was replaced by Simon Milenko but will have to be assessed before this one.

The Hurricanes have England’s T20 batting star Dawid Malan available after a period of quarantine. He comes in to support Colin Ingram and D’Arcy Short.

Tim Paine and Matthew Wade are also on international duty, which means Peter Handscomb continues as skipper.

Brisbane Heat v Hobart Hurricanes – Betting Tips and Prediction

Brisbane improved with the ball against the Strikers last time out but this looks another tough test.

Hobart were quickly into stride this tournament and will be keen to make it back-to-back successes following their only loss so far.

It is hard to look past the Hurricanes for the outright win.

There are also plenty of other markets to look at.

McDermott is a Value Pick for Top Batsman

Wicketkeeper-batsman Ben McDermott has been in fine form with the bat so far this BBL and can continue that in this clash.

The arrival of Dawid Malan sees him head the betting to be Hobart’s top batsman. However, this could be the time to back against the England star after his stint in quarantine.

He will have to get up to speed quickly at the Gabba and we’d be happy to take him on first time up.

McDermott looks the value play after good recent showings. He hit 46 against the Strikers before a brilliant 89 against the Renegades,

His price of 4.33 with bet365 is far too big.

Hurricanes to Hit the Most Sixes in the Match

The sixes could be flying at the Gabba with the ball coming onto the bat.

Hobart look a great pick to hit the most with the powerful players in their ranks. Ingram, Malan and Short will be keen to let fly.

They look much more formidable in this area compared to the Heat and their price of 1.75 with 22Bet to hit the most sixes looks a great bet.

Back Faulkner with the Ball

Hobart have bowled really well as a unit so far but it has been the performances of James Faulkner that have caught the eye the most.

He has been in the wickets since BBL 10 started and his price should probably be shorter than the 3.5 being offer by 22Bet to be his team’s top bowler here.

The track at the Gabba should suit the left-arm Aussie and he heads here with eight wickets to his name after the first four matches.
