If this Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder game had been played a few days ago, it would have looked like a one-sided affair. But in the last few days, things have changed a little. Brisbane Heat played poorly in the 2020/21 edition of the BBL, which rightly placed them among the bottom-dwellers.
However, a surprising win over the Sydney Sixers in the last match will give them a huge boost, given that the Sixers are among the most consistent sides of the competition. The inclusion of Chris Lynn in their team is another news that will give them a considerable boost. Everything being said, it’s still going to be an uphill battle against the Thunder, as the green men from Sydney are in first place at the point.
The weather was good for the day of the match. There will be a little cloud cover, but there is no rain forecast, which is good news.
A decent batting track is on offer at the Bellerive Oval with 160-170 being the venue’s par score. While the ball is supposed to skip nicely to the bat, the bowlers should enjoy moving off the surface.
The spinners are going to have a say in this game with an extra bounce favouring them. Both teams will chase after winning the toss, as the pitch is likely to play better under the lights at the Bellerive Oval.

Sydney Thunder is coming back from five wins back and has been very dominant in the tournament. They have a reliable team with a lot of quality in their batting and bowling departments. Brisbane Heat has shown remarkable improvement in the last few games, but they do not seem to have the quality that can match the Sydney Thunders. Looking at their form, the Sydney Thunders are the clear favourites here. Let’s support your favourite cricket team at baji.live now to enjoy the excitement of cricket!
