STR vs HEA Dream11 Team Prediction & Preview: 40th Match, BBL 2019-20
Adelaide Strikers will take on Brisbane Heat in the 40th match of Big Bash League 2019-20 at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. We will provide STR vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Brisbane Heat won the last head-to-head encounter between both teams in Big Bash League 2019-20 by seven runs.
Strikers have a roller coaster ride this season. They are currently at 5th position on the points table with 4 wins and 4 losses and a total of 9 points.
In the last match, batting first Strikers lost 4 wickets in the power play for 48 runs and looked in deep trouble. No batsman was able to play a big inning, nor was there a good partnership. Rashid Khan’s 28 runs, in the end, help the Strikers to post a total of 110 runs and got all out in 19 overs.
With 110 to defend, it was a very tough task for the bowlers of Strikers. They picked up the big wicket of Chris Lynn in the 1st over and picked up another wicket in the very next over, and it looked like Strikers were getting back into the game. But after that, they gave away runs and weren’t able to pick up wickets until the 13th over, but it was too late by then, and the opposition won the match comfortably by 7 wickets in 16 overs. Michael Neser, Rashid Khan, and Liam O’Connor picked up 1 wicket each.
Strikers would want to win this match against the Brisbane Heat and take revenge for their previous loss as well as move up on the points table.
Heat is currently having a good time as they are at the 3rd position on the points table with 5 wins and 4 losses and a total of 10 points.
In the last match bowling first, Heat picked up 4 wickets in the power play and put pressure on the opposition. Even after that, they didn’t allow them to score freely and picked up wickets at regular intervals and got them all out for 110 runs in 19 overs. James Pattinson bowled brilliantly and picked up 5 wickets for 33 runs in his 5 overs. Josh Lalor and Ben Cutting picked up 2 wickets each, and Mitchell Swepson picked up 1 wicket.
With 111 runs to chase and the kind of batting line up Heat have, it looked like a straightforward task for them, but they lost the wickets of Chris Lynn and Max Bryant in first 2 overs and looked in trouble. Matt Renshaw 52* runs and AB de Villiers 40 runs batted very sensible and ensured the Heat a victory by seven wickets.
They would want to win this match against Adelaide Strikers and maintain the 3rd spot on the points table.
