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 the poor showing in the initial part of the tournament. They have been better this year and are showing signs of gaining momentum in the last few last cricket games. 

Currently, after playing six cricket games, they are placed at the fifth spot with three wins and three losses. They have especially brutal batting first as they have simply blown away attacks and out batted their oppositions. However, here is the thing, they have not managed to win a cricket game yet while chasing the score. Hence, they would like to address that issue if they get the chance in the next cricket game.

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game. 

Here is our prediction of Brisbane Heat’s playing XI:

  • Chris Lynn   
  • Max Bryant
  • Ben Cutting
  • Zahir Khan
  • JK Lalor
  • MJ Swepson
  • Ben Laughlin
  • Matt Renshaw
  • Tom Banton
  • JJ Peirson
  • Jack Prestwidge

Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes have been led by BR McDermott so far in the tournament. With Australian test summer currently at a halt, Matthew Wade is expected to be back leading the side. 

Darcy Short scored a fabulous hundred in the last game for Hobart and led them to a par score of 180 runs. In the defence of the score, they restricted Hobart Hurricanes to a total of 172 runs and won the game of cricket by eight runs. With that win, they have now got three wins out of six cricket games and are currently placed at the sixth spot. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Hobart Hurricanes’ playing XI:

  • BR McDermott
  • DJM Short
  • Riley Meredith
  • James Faulkner
  • M Wright
  • David Miller
  • CP Jewell
  • S Milenko
  • NT Ellis
  • Qais Ahmad
  • CA Rose

Expert Prediction: BH vs HH

The season nine of Big Bash League is underway and we have already seen some of the great performances from teams. Brisbane Heat have always been one of the most watchable teams of the tournament and they have not let their fans down this year as well. Hobart Hurricanes have been a bit underwhelming this season but seem to be getting into the groove in the last game. 

The Big Bash League has been changed as a format this year. The tournament will be 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, Hobart Hurricanes have been the winners on four occasions, whereas Brisbane Heat were the winners in the most recent encounter. Our prediction is of the victory for Brisbane Heat in this cricket game especially if they get to bat first. 


Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will 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. 

Who will win? – Brisbane Heat

Top Batsman – Chris Lynn (BH), DJM Short (HH)
