Hello and welcome to our HEA vs STA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars will play in the 32nd match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Carrara Oval, Queensland.
Heat have struggled so far this season as they have won 3 out of 7 matches and are currently at the 6th position on the points table with 12 points. In the last game, they put up a good performance and won by 5 wickets.
The team’s batting department has appeared to be improving very well from the last two matches. Max Bryant has been performing decently so far this season, and with the return of Chris Lynn to the team, the batting looks even stronger.
Joe Denly and Joe Burns batted brilliantly in the middle-order and steadied the innings by scoring half-centuries. Skipper Peirson has put up some good performances this season, and Lewis Gregory has also contributed with both bat and ball whenever required. James Bazley has been brilliant in the lower middle-order.
The bowling department has been performing consistently in every match. Mark Steketee, Jack Wildermuth, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have been the team’s consistent wicket-takers so far in this season. Xavier Bartlett and Lewis Gregory managed to pick up one wicket each in the last match.
Brisbane Heat needs to continue their winning momentum and win their next match against the Stars and move up in the points table.
They have appeared to be struggling after a perfect start to the tournament as they have won 3 out of the seven matches, and one match was abandoned due to rain. Melbourne Stars are now at the 5th position on the points table with a total of 15 points. They finally managed to win a match after three consecutive losses.
Opening batsman Andre Fletcher has not been able to perform and looked completely out of form, but his opening partner Stoinis batted exceptionally well, scoring 97* runs in the last match. Cartwright batted well in the previous game after his batting order was changed.
Skipper Maxwell, who was the most consistent player on the team, got out early in the last match. Nicholas Pooran has been batting decently so far in the middle-order. The other batsmen have not been unable to perform consistently, and it has become a significant concern for the Stars.
Liam Hatcher and Adam Zampa were supposed to be the team’s leading bowlers, but they have appeared to be struggling to pick up wickets in the last few matches. Billy Stanlake has seemed to be getting better in every game and has started to pick up wickets. Sam Rainbird bowled brilliantly, picking up 2 wickets in the last match.
Stars need to improve their bowling performance, and it appeared that the batting unit changes had worked their way as they won the last match. They need to continue their winning momentum by winning their next game against the Heat.
