Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Stars
Big Bash League
T20 | 51st Match
8:10 AM (IST)
Brisbane Cricket Ground
Brisbane Heat started the new season of BBL with two consecutive losses. They recovered in the third fixture against Adelaide Strikers but went back to losing ways in the fourth game. The only good memory for Brisbane Heat this season will be the two major upsets that they won against Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers.
Brisbane Heat has struggled with their bowling lineup but they don’t have a good option as a replacement and hence they will be with the same combination as the last game.
Predicted Lineup: Josh Brown, Usman Khawaja (c), Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Sam Hain, Jimmy Peirson (wk), James Bazley, Michael Neser, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann
Since the 2019-2020 season, Melbourne Stars have not qualified for the playoffs. They have seen a major dip in overall performance but this year the team is going through a nightmare. The Stars are coming to face the same opposition to which they faced a loss in their last game. The team morale looks low and the players are missing the much-required confidence.
The Stars will have the same combinations and no changes are expected.
Predicted Lineup: Nathan Coulter-Nile, Luke Wood, Hilton Cartwright, Clint Hinchliffe, Adam Zampa, Nick Larkin, Joe Clarke, James Seymour, Thomas Fraser Rogers, BJ Webster, Liam Hatcher
