Upcoming Match Analysis:
Sydney Sixers will lock horns with Brisbane Heat in match number 35 of the Big Bash League 2020-21 season. This will be the 2nd match between these two teams of the BBL 2020-21. It will be a battle of best versus best as both teams are very balanced and full of quality players. Both teams have good talented and experienced BBL players in their squad. Head to head record goes in favour of Sydney Sixers but the current team of Brisbane is very strong.
Sydney Sixers were served a jolt in the last game where they were beaten by 86 runs against the Perth Scorchers. That huge loss dented their net run rate a little and affected their chances of getting to the top spot on the table as well. The Sixers, who are at the No.2 position at present, will now be looking to make amends when they take on Brisbane Heat in their next encounter. The Heat are on a good winning run at the moment and have already beaten the Sixers once. They will hence pose a good challenge.
There has been only one game played at Carrara Oval in Queensland this season – between Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars. It was a 10-over-a-side game and we saw 225 runs being scored in the 20 overs. Expect another high-scoring encounter and the team batting first will target around 170-180 runs on the board.
The wicket at Carrara Oval in Queensland is quite a belter. As we saw in the last match, the ball came on nicely onto the bat and runs were there for the taking. Seamers would have to be very careful with their lines. However, spinners can find some purchase through the middle phase. The weather in Queensland has been rainy of late but it is expected to be clear on the day of the match. It will be cloudy so that might help the bowlers.
The team winning the toss is likely to bat first. It Is a superb wicket and a healthy total up front would be the ideal way to go.
