Brisbane, February 08, Friday at 03:10 PM IST
Brisbane Heat will square off against Melbourne Stars at The Gabba, Brisbane in their last home fixture on Friday noon. With the semi-final round just a couple of games away, the race to finish off in top four positions have fastened up.
Brisbane Heat, who are placed fifth in the ladder with five wins and seven defeats in thirteen encounter, have released a 13-man squad with one change for their final league encounter. While this is a must-win game for the Heat to stay alive in the contest, it is also the farewell game B McCullum. This is his final home game as he has announced to end his BBL career. The Heat have recalled pacer Brendan Doggett in place of Sam Heazlett. They are coming after securing 6 wickets win over Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers in their last two games and would be hoping to carry their form.
Melbourne Stars are placed fourth in the league table with six wins and as many defeats in twelve outings. With two more games remaining, they are one win away from advancing into the next round. Stars have been boosted with the return of Nepalese spinner Sandeep Lamicchane who was busy with BPL 2019. Lamichhane comes in place of Liam Plunkett.
