THU vs HEA Dream11 Match Preview

The 7th match of the Big Bash League will see Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat lock horns against each other. Both the teams are coming into this match with a loss in their outing.

Sydney Thunder lost their game against Melbourne Stars; Bowling first, Thunder restricted the Stars to 169 runs. All the bowlers played their part, but Tanveer Sangha was the pick from the bowlers as he ended his spell with the figures of 2/26 in 4 overs. Daniel Sams was also excellent with the ball in the death and finished picking up two wickets in the last over.

While chasing Thunder lost Usman Khawaja early, but Hales and Ferguson steadied the ship with a good partnership of 69 runs. Ferguson was the pick from the batters. He scored a solid knock of 54 runs, but in the end, we’re not able to cross the line and eventually lost the match.

Brisbane Heat, on the other hand, also their lost match against the Stars. Batting first, Heat was bowled out for 125 runs, and none of the batters were successful in playing a big inning and did not show intent with the bat. Chris Lynn is the only established batsman in their line up, and batting can be a concern for them in the rest of the tournament. Stars comfortably chased the total with almost 3 overs to spare. Jack Wood looked impressive with the ball as he finished his spell with 2 wickets in his 3 over spell.

Thunder looks like a solid team compared to the Heat, but if Chris Lynn fires, it can go another way round, and we can hope for a cracker of the contest on Monday.
