Heat vs Stars Preview & Prediction

The Brisbane Heat enter the match full of confidence after a 39-run victory over the Adelaide Strikers.

Batting first, the Heat compiled 7/208 (20) courtesy of Ben Duckett’s 78 runs from 47 balls and Sam Heazlett’s 49 from 30. Mark Steketee bowled well picking up 3/27 from four overs and James Bazley picked up 2/27 from his four as the Heat restricted the Strikers to 8/169 (20).

The Melbourne Stars look to bounce back from a 24-run loss against the Hobart Hurricanes.

Set 181 to win, the Stars lost the crucial wickets of Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell for just 30 runs combined and despite a good knock from Joe Clarke who made 52 off 40, there wasn’t another batter to make a score which left the Stars at 9/156 (20). Nathan Coulter-Nile was the shining light with the ball for the Stars picking up 2/22 (4).

It has been a back and forth affair between the two teams in their last seven clashes, but the Heat may be able to make it consecutive wins over the Stars who are not having an ideal start to the tournament with two wins and three losses. The Heat also boast the same record but the expectations would have been higher on the Stars who have had a habit of making it to the business end of the season without winning a BBL title.

In a flip of the coin match, the Heat look to be the value as underdogs and they are 6/8 when sent out as underdogs against the Stars in recent seasons.
