HEA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction Big Bash League T20 Live Score, Pitch Report, Player Stats, Dream11 Team for Today Match


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.

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.
