Brisbane Heat Reviews: The performance of HEA was no better than STR. They have a similar performance where they won five out of 11 matches played so far and lost six matches. HEA lost its previous match to Perth Scorchers. Their target was 175 runs which could not be reached and HEA was all out on a total of 115 runs. Chris Lynn was the highest run-scorer from their side who scored 27 runs.. Their bowling team was not much impressive either, however, Morne Morkel and Wildermuth were able to pick 2 wickets each. James Bazley had one wicket to his name.
Team Predictions: Brisbane Heat is overall a stronger team as compared to the Adelaide Strikers. The previous match between STR and HEA was won by STR by only two runs. The bowling team of HEA is in a good form and they are full of experienced and young players of the t20 format. The batting order is also strong with some of the well-known hitter being a part of the HEA team. For this reason, the winning chances of the upcoming matches for the Brisbane Heat have been increased over Adelaide Strikers.
