Friday will be a doubleheader for the Big Bash League season 12 and in the second game of the day, we will witness BRH vs HBH. The hopes to qualify for the playoffs are almost over for the Brisbane Heat. All they can do now is to win the remaining games and trust their luck.
HBH still have a good chance to see themselves in the playoffs as they are currently placed in the fifth spot. With a net run rate of -0.721 and 4 wins, BRH are currently in the seventh position in the point table. They will have to win all the remaining games to improve their chances to qualify for the playoffs.
Hobart Hurricanes are placed at the fifth spot and will be trying hard to improve their position in the Big Bash League 2022 point table on Friday. They have won five games out of ten which they have played.
Our experts believe that Adam Zampa will be the man who can be a game-changer as he can pick more than two wickets. However, we also feel that Hobart Hurricanes will win the upcoming fixture against Brisbane Heat.
The betting tip is...
Hurricanes will Win
BRH are coming to play against the Hurricanes after scoring a much-needed win against Melbourne Stars in their last game. After winning the toss, the Heat decided to bowl first and the decision turned out to be in their favour. Bowlers did a great job by picking up wickets and controlling the run rate of the opposition. The chase was easy and Matt Renshaw played the role of the match-winner. Brisbane’s primary concern is their unstable opening batting which is not giving the team a good start.
Brisbane Heat will be in the tried and tested line-up and won't take risks in the important encounter. Here is the predicted XI.
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
HRH won’t be happy with their overall performance. The team have shown inconsistency in the new season of BBL. They have won 5 games and at the same time have lost 5 games. The inconsistency of the Hurricanes can be resolved by just making a few changes in the squad and that too in the opening lineup. Unfortunately, Ben Mcdermott is turning out to be a complete failure this season and the Hurricanes should try someone else in his place.
Matthew Wade has shown his trust with the same line up on many occasions this season. The probable line-up for Hurricanes could look like this:
Predicted Lineup: Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade (c & wk), Zak Crawley, Tim David, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Tom Andrews, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis, Riley Meredith
Both the teams are evenly matched and it is going to be a thrilling fixture. However, the Hurricanes have an edge with their bowling and we predict a win for the Hobart Hurricanes.
