Manuka Oval – Canberra, Australia

Of course these are first stage days in the ongoing Big Bash League but there is a clear line of difference emerging between the teams at the top and the ones at the bottom. Melbourne Stars seem to be escaping with the lead as they presently have eight points with a net run-rate of 1.218. On the other hand there are the two teams that are still searching for their first win.

Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat got off to similar starts in the 2020-21 edition of the Big Bash League. Both teams lost their opening games. And both teams got defeated against Glenn Maxwell’s Melbourne Stars, the 2019-20 BBL runners-up.

The Brisbane Heat brought in quite a few faces and inexperience clearly showed as they were bowled out for 125 runs inside their quota of 20 overs. The Thunder, on the other hand, had every chance of turning over the Stars, but a batting collapse halted their surge.

Moreover, the fact that on the head-to-head count, they are 2-8 behind the Brisbane Heat, not as much encouragement for them. As far as the Brisbane Heat are concerned, they have signed Joe Denly and it is not yet known whether or not he has joined the squad ahead of their next face off.

Pitch And Conditions

The pitch in the first two games at the venue was a pretty sporting one. Run-making wasn’t all that tough. But batters need to ensure that once they get their eye in, they don’t throw their wickets away.

Once a team scores above 160, it might be difficult to chase the target. The temperature during game-time will be around the 18 degrees Celsius mark. The humidity will mostly be in the high-60s.

Sydney Thunder Predicted XI:

Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson (c), Baxter Holt (wk), Alex Ross, Ben Cutting, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, Nathan McAndrew, Jonathan Cook, Tanveer Sangha

Brisbane Heat Predicted XI:

Chris Lynn (c), Max Bryant, Sam Heazlett, Daniel Lawrence, Tom Cooper, Jimmy Peirson (wk), Simon Milenko, Jack Wood, Xavier Bartlett, Ben Laughlin, Matthew Kuhnemann

Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat Match Prediction:

Bhaiji is the best platform for those who love online betting and earn money. BBL betting is quite different from IPL betting as it is not familiar with Indian cricket fans. Considering that both sides are coming off massive defeats in their previous respective matches, both sides will be desperate to get off the mark. One thing common between the two sides is that they both were defeated by Melbourne Stars.

Sydney Thunder look to be having a more complete side as compared to the Brisbane Heat. Their batsmen appeared to be in decent form in the last match before fumbling in the final few moments. With a good amalgamation of youth and experience, Sydney Thunder certainly seem to be better equipped to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture.
