Hello and welcome to our HEA vs STR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers will play against each other in the Eliminator of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at The Gabba, Brisbane.
The Heat managed to win 7 out of 14 matches and ended up at the 4th position on the points table and qualified for the Eliminator. They performed well in the last game, winning it by six runs.
The team’s batting department has been decent so far this season, but they have underperformed in most of the matches. Skipper Chris Lynn has been opening the innings, scoring runs consistently in every game, and has already scored five fifties in the nine games he has played this season. Max Bryant has been batting decently but has not been able to play a big inning.
At No.3 Labuschagne has been batting well and missed his fifty twice in three matches by just a few runs. Joe Denly and Joe Burns have been batting well in the middle-order, providing stability to the innings but in the last game both of them got out early, and Burns is struggling from the previous few games.
Peirson has put up some good performances this season but appeared to be struggling recently, and Lewis Gregory has also contributed with both bat and ball whenever required for the team.
The bowling department has performed well in most of the matches and is the major reason for the Heat being able to qualify for the playoffs. Mark Steketee has been the team’s consistent wicket-taker so far in this season. Bartlett has also been picking up wickets at crucial times.
Swepson bowled well and picked up two wickets in the last match, and Labuschagne has also been bowling very well and picking up wickets in every game.
Brisbane Heat needs to maintain their winning momentum and win the Eliminator against the Strikers.
Strikers have managed to win seven matches out of the 14 and finished the league stage at the 5th position on the points table and qualified for the Eliminator. They had to face disappointment in the last match as they lost by nine wickets through the DLS method.
Alex Carey and Jake Weatherald are the new batting pair of the team. After a brilliant hundred, Carey got out early in the previous game. Still, Jake Weatherald has been performing consistently in every match he has been asked to play at any position. Phil Salt has started to bat at No.3 from the last two games and has scored a decent amount of runs this season.
Skipper Tarvis Head got out early in the last match. Jon Wells has also scored a decent amount of runs, but he has looked to be a little slow in his batting approach this season and Ryan Gibbson has played a couple of good innings with the bat.
Strikers’ bowlers have been decent so far in most of the matches this season, but they performed horribly in the last game. Wes Agar has been the team’s consistent wicket-takers and is among the top five wicket-takers this season. Peter Siddle has also performed brilliantly in some of the matches this season, picking up a fifer. Daniel Worrall has also picked up some crucial wickets and managed to pick up a wicket in the last game.
Strikers need to forget their last match performance and try to give their best in the Eliminator against the Brisbane Heat.
