HEA vs SIX Dream11 Prediction: After a much-coveted win in the last match in Hobart, Brisbane Heat will take on the defending champions Sydney Sixers in a rematch scheduled at Carrara Oval. The Heat, who are currently placed at the 5th spot in BBL 11 rankings, managed to put an end to their two-match losing streak against the Hobart Hurricanes, courtesy of the blistering knock from all-rounder James Bazley (44*), and fiery figures from Xavier Bartlett (4/30) and Mujeeb Ur Rahman (3/20). While this was the Heat’s 3rd win of the season, the Sixers, on the other hand, have sealed 6 wins in 9 matches and are seated the second spot, despite suffering a 10-run loss against the table-toppers Perth Scorchers. The Sixers had won their previous faceoff against the Heat by a narrow margin of two wickets. With confidence sky-high for the Men in Pink, they would look to write off the Heat for a second time this season.

Ben Duckett stats in T20
The English cricketer has been a big positive for the Heat who have been failing as a batting unit in BBL 11. Batting at No.3, Duckett has struck 218 runs in 8 innings while striking at 138.85, including knocks of 46, 78 and 54 against Sydney Thunder, Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars respectively.
Xavier Bartlett stats in T20
The pacer has been a sure-shot wicket-taker in the ongoing tournament with an overall tally of 11 scalps at an average of 18.09. Not to forget, Bartlett has been handy with his batting prowess in the middle-order, with scores of 42* and 34* against Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers respectively.

Josh Philippe stats in T20
Philippe’s an obvious selection in the fantasy line-up considering how lethal he has been with the bat this season. Having scored 295 runs while averaging 42.14, the opener ranks third among the leading run-getters in BBL11 and could be expected to go bonkers against the Heat in the forthcoming duel.
Sean Abbott stats in T20
He was adjudged as the Player of the Match in the last matchup against the Heat. Abbott finished with figures of 4/31 and a crucial 37* and followed with 1/28 versus the Scorchers at Carrara Oval. The right-armer is a bankable player who could garner wickets at crucial intervals and therefore remains a feasible pick as a captain or vice-captain in the fantasy line-up.
The Sixers have looked pretty dominant since the commencement of BBL11. They have even outnumbered the Heat in their overall head-to-head in BBL, winning 12 matches to Heat’s tally of mere 3 wins. Barring a few matches, the top and middle-order have been spot on with their consistent exploits and along with the in-form pace trio of Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis have managed to garner easy wins for the Sixers. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise if the Moises Henriques-led side manages to seal their second win of the season against the Heat, who have been struggling heavily because of their batting woes. According to HEA vs SIX today match prediction and Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers cricket betting tips, Sydney Sixers are expected to win.
