HEA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction: Hobart Hurricanes take on a depleted Brisbane Heat in their second encounter of the season at the Gabba. Hurricanes had lost to the Heat by a margin of 14 runs in their previous faceoff, but they look pretty lethal on paper in comparison to the Brisbane Heat, who are missing out on the services of twelve players along with their coach Wade Seccombe due to the COVID-19 isolation. This poses an opportunity for the Hurricanes to shut their two-match losing streak at the hands of the Heat and the Adelaide Strikers, and script their fifth win in BBL 11. Though it’s going to be a challenging task for the Brisbane Heat, who are clearly the weaker side in contention, one can still expect the young guns to render a fight in the upcoming duel.

Sam Heazlett stats in T20
The southpaw has been the biggest positive for the Heat in terms of his contributions to the teams’ total. In 9 innings, Heazlett has aggregated 242 runs at an average of 30.25 and strike rate of 128-plus, with top scores of 44* and 49 against the Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers respectively.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman stats in T20
Arguably one of the best bowlers in the T20 format, Mujeeb ranks among the economical performers in the ongoing edition of the tournament (6.05), and with the varied skill set that he brings into the title, the Afghan off-spinner is likely to garner a jaw-dropping performance against the Hurricanes.

Ben McDermott stats in T20
McDermott’s leaps and bounds ahead of fellow Hurricanes’ batters in terms of runs amassed this season (364) which makes him a pick to ponder upon as a captain or vice-captain in the fantasy line-up. What’s interesting is that the opening batter can garner fantasy points with his boundary and six-hitting prowess as well.
D Arcy Short stats in T20
It’s high time the southpaw returns to his striking ways. Though he has been piling runs for the Hurricanes, having amassed 265 runs across 9 innings at an average of 33.12, it’s the strike rate that has been a trouble for the BBL giant. Nonetheless, being an experienced campaigner in the T20 circuit, Short can be backed to come up with a decent show at the Gabba which could change the fortunes for the Hurricanes.
Brisbane Heat are clearly depleted owing to the COVID-19 break in their squad. They could give a fight, as was visible in their last match against the Melbourne Renegades, however, they are likely to fail against the Hurricanes who are looking pretty solid on paper. According to the HEA vs HUR today match prediction & Brisbane Heat vs Hobart Hurricanes cricket betting tips, Hobart Hurricanes are expected to win this match.
