THU vs HEA Dream11 Team Prediction | 2nd Match | Big Bash League 2021-22

Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat will play in the 2nd match of the Big Bash League 2021-22 at Manuka Oval, Canberra. We will cover THU vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Sydney Thunder:

Sydney Thunder won the title once so far in the history of BBL and has reached the knock-out stage only thrice in ten seasons.

The right-arm off-break bowler, Chris Green, will be captaining the side in the absence of Usman Khawaja. Alex Hales and Sam Whiteman might get the chance to open the innings. There are many options in the middle-order, but they might go with Sam Billings, Daniel Sams, and Ben Cutting.

The main focus would be on Daniel Sams, and Nathan McAndrew in the bowling department. The spin duo Green and Tanveer Sangha might play a crucial role in the middle-overs.

This season, Sydney Thunder has some boxes to tick, and they have formidable opposition in their first match.   

Brisbane Heat:

Brisbane Heat won the second season of the Big Bash League, but apart from that, they have not been able to perform consistently over the years.

The wicketkeeper-batsman, Jimmy Peirson, will lead the side. Chris Lynn and Max Bryant are likely the opening pair of the team, Ben Duckett, S Heazlett and Tom Cooper will form the team’s middle-order. Skipper Peirson and Wildermuth might perform the role of the team’s finisher.

The bowling unit might be lacking some star bowlers in the team. Only Mujeeb is a well-known name in the team. Matt Kuhnemann, Wildermuth, and Bazley might be considered the wicket-takers of the team.

Brisbane Heat has a good batting unit but, they need to improve their bowling performance this season.
