Hello and welcome to our HEA vs THU Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder will play against each other in the 28th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at The Gabba Brisbane, Hobart.
Heat is having a very tough time so far this season as they have won only 2 out of 6 matches and are currently at the 7th position on the points table with 8 points. In the last game, they put up a good performance and won by 4 wickets.
The team’s batting department has finally come together and has a good performance in the last match. Max Bryant has been performing decently so far this season, and his new opening partner Joe Burns got out scoring only 1 run in his first match of the season.
Skipper Peirson has put up some good performances this season, and Lewis Gregory batted well in the last match along with Jake Wildermuth, and they were one of the primary reason for the Heat’s win in the previous game.
The bowling department has been the team’s backbone as the bowlers have been performing well in every match. Mark Steketee, Jake Wildermuth, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have been the team’s consistent wicket-takers so far in this season.
Brisbane Heat needs to continue their winning momentum and win their next match against the Thunder and move up in the points table.
The Sydney Thunder are having a good time so far as they have won 5 out of 6 matches and are currently at 2nd position on the points table with a total of 19 points. In the last game, Sydney Thunder performed well and won the match by seven runs through the DLS method.
Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja have been giving a brilliant start to the inning from the past few matches. Hales and Khawaja both fell just short of a fifty in the last game. Skipper Ferguson got out a little early in the previous round.
Oliver Davies has performed brilliantly in a couple of matches and got out early in the next two. Ben Cutting and Daniel Sams have played the role of the all-rounders very well as they have been scoring runs and picking up wickets at the same time.
The bowlers did not perform well in the last match as they allowed the opposition to score runs freely. Nathan McAndrew was able to pick up three wickets in the previous game, but he was slightly expensive.
Thunder has won fie matches consecutively, and they would want to continue their streak by winning against Brisbane Heat and get on top of the points table.
