STA- Marcus Stoinis

He is a superstar in the BBL. Home conditions suit his style of play.  Recent performance in the IPL also proves that he is in fine nick. Moreover, he will be opening the batting for Stars.

He is a Brisbane Heat legend. Over the years he has carried this team on his shoulders with his match-winning performances. Expect the same from him this year also.

Top Bowlers

STA- Adam Zampa

He is probably the most skillful bowler to play in this match. His crafty leg-spin will come in handy to tackle Lynn and co.

HEA- Ben Laughlin

He is one of Heat’s mainstays with the ball. His contribution with the ball will come in handy if they are to pose any threat to the strong Stars batting unit.
