Brisbane Heat

Like last year, Brisbane Heat are once again being led by Chris Lynn. They could not make the top four last year due to their poor showing in the initial part of the tournament. This year, they have been better and are showing signs of gaining momentum in the last few last cricket games. 

Currently, after playing eight cricket games, they are placed at the fifth spot with four wins and all four wins have come in their last five games. After blowing the teams on batting first, they registered their first win this season while chasing in their second last game.

Expert Prediction: BH vs AS

It is getting to the business end of the tournament. Teams are now looking to give themselves the best chance to qualify for the playoff spot. Amidst this, Brisbane Heat will be taking on Adelaide Strikers. After winning four back-to-back games, Heat lost their last cricket game against Perth Scorchers, whereas Strikers got the much-needed win against Melbourne Renegades. 

This year, the tournament is being played over a period of 42 days and a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams. 

As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the side that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.

The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature, which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament.

In the last five encounters between the two sides, Strikers have managed to win three cricket games, whereas Heat have emerged winner on two other occasions. 

Our prediction is of a win for Brisbane Heat. They are a formidable side at home and will be tough to beat.   


Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
