Hello and welcome to our STR vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat will play against each other in the 46th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.
Strikers have managed to win five matches out of the eleven so far and are currently at the 7th position on the points table with 20 points. They had to face disappointment in the last match as they lost by a massive margin of 111 runs.
Opener Phil Salt has been performing decently so far this season but got out early in the last match. Except for one game, Matt Renshaw has not appeared to be in good form and scored 20 runs in the previous game at a very slow rate. Alex Carey has looked in good form this season but opened in the innings in the last match and got out for only one run.
Jake Weatherald has been batting brilliantly at his new batting position in the middle-order, and Jon Wells has played a couple of good innings but has looked very slow in his batting approach. Ryan Gibbson has also performed decently in some of the seasons.
Strikers’ bowlers did not perform well in the last match, conceded many runs, and failed to pick up wickets. Wes Agar has been the team’s consistent wicket-takers and is among the top five wicket-takers this season. Daniel Worrall and Danny Briggs have also managed to pick up wickets in crucial times.
Strikers still have a perfect chance of qualifying for playoffs if they managed to win every remaining match.
The Heat have performed decently in the last few matches and have won 5 out of 11 games, and are currently at the 6th position on the points table with 20 points. They had to face disappointment in the previous game as they lost their last match by 59 runs.
The team’s batting department has been performing consistently in most of the matches recently. Max Bryant has been performing decently so far this season but got out early in the last game. Skipper Chris Lynn has been opening the innings, scoring runs consistently in every game, and has already scored three fifties in the seven matches he has played this season.
Joe Denly and Joe Burns have been batting well in the middle-order, providing stability to the innings. Peirson has put up some good performances this season but appeared to be struggling in the last few matches, and Lewis Gregory has also contributed with both bat and ball whenever required for the team.
The bowling department has performed consistently in every match but looked out of the last game’s rhythm. Mark Steketee has been the team’s consistent wicket-taker so far in this season but went wicketless in the previous match. Jack Wildermuth and Bartlett have also been picking up wickets at crucial times. Morne Morkel has played two games this season and picked wickets in each of them.
Brisbane Heat needs to keep winning matches to be alive in the race for the playoffs.
