The Gabba – Brisbane, Australia
It’s a crunch game for both the Heat and Strikers in the last Big Bash fixture before Christmas at the Gabba on Wednesday night.
Brisbane are presently fixed to the bottom of the point table after losing their first two games, but they can feel unlucky for themselves to have fallen to the Sydney Thunder in their last game when Daniel Sams blasted a stunning match-winning innings of 65 off just 25 balls.
Meanwhile, after conquering the Hurricanes for their first win of the season, the Strikers couldn’t make it back-to-back triumphs on Monday night, going down by 38 runs to the Sydney Sixers.
Both teams will be in the thoughts to use every opportunity to claim the win and build some momentum before the busy festive period. Both sides have not looked great so far, but we think there’s some value in the Heat. Lynn is looking his usual explosive self, and if the team can put another big score, they will be well-positioned for the victory.
Pitch Report and Conditions & Toss Prediction:
The Gabba, Brisbane is a T20 venue and the smaller boundaries allow the batsmen to hit big shots and score runs quickly on this surface. This surface helps fast bowlers as the new ball provides good bounce and carry to them. There is almost nothing for the spinners on this surface and the small size of the ground makes it tough for them to save runs and themselves from power hittings.
It will be clear skies with odd clouds over Brisbane on December 23 and the conditions are likely to be good for the bowlers at the start of the game. Batsmen have to be watchful on this surface and the side that bats first would not be happy to set a target less than 170 runs on the board in this game.
Teams choose to bowl first on this surface winning the toss and sides chasing the score have won most of the time. This would be the first game of the season at this venue and there would be some assistance for the bowlers. Likewise for this match the side winning the toss is likely to choose for bowling first.
