Date and Time : 11th January 2023, 7:40 PM (Local)
Venue : The Gabba, Brisbane
Brisbane Heat have been poor this season and will want to improve upon as the season nears it’s end. They are currently 7th in the points table after 8 games with 5 points. The NRR is a -0.943.
The Heat’ batsman will hope to be on their toes as important games come. Bowling wise they will look to be solid.
Coach Wade Seccombe will aim for execution of the tactics.
On the other hand, Perth Scorchers are having a great season and will look for solidarity. Scorchers are currently 2nd in the points table after 8 games with 12 points. The NRR is a +0.842.
The Scorchers’ batting will look to get the job done. While bowling wise they know they can restrict.
Head coach Adam Voges will hope to completely execute the game plans.
For the wicket, it will be a balanced one.
Team news and possible lineups
There are no fresh injury concerns for both sides at the moment.
Brisbane Heat XI : S. Billings, M. Bryant, M. Kuhnemann, C. Munro, M. Neser, J. Peirson (C), M. Steketee, M. Swepson, R. Whiteley, J. Brown, N. McSweeney.
Perth Scorchers XI : C. Bancroft, J. Behrendorff, C. Connolly, A. Hardie, Hobson, J. Inglis, M. Kelly, L. Morris, A. Turner (C), A. Tye, S. Eskinazi.
I expect Perth Scorchers to start as favourites but Brisbane Heat will have the home advantage. It should count for the home team. The contest should go till the fierce end in which Perth Scorchers win.
