HUR vs HEA Dreeam11: Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat will be up against each other in the 20th match of this season’s BBL here at the Gabba. Both the teams played their last game against each other where Heat registered their first win of the season. Hobart Hurricanes haven’t played poorly this season but will be disappointed from their last loss. The power packed batting line-up starts from D’Arcy Short and talented Ben McDermott at the top. The world No.1 T20 batsman Dawid Malan gives them a perfect option at No.3. Tim David has been impressive with his late hitting this season. Faulkner, Meredith and Boland have performed well as a unit and Hurricanes will expect a similar performance from them.
Brisbane Heat hasn’t been at its best this season and are lying in the bottom half. With Chris Lynn being ruled out for 6 matches, the batting order looks inexperienced. They will take confidence from the fact that despite missing Lynn, they were able to register a win in their last game. Young batsmen Bryant and Heazlett shined in the last game and laid a solid foundation. A lot more will be expected from experienced batsman Tom Cooper and he will be needed to lead the middle order. The bowling looks good with young Xavier Bartlett in good form. Steketee and Wildermuth too have made crucial contributions with the ball. The Heat will look to build some momentum from their last win.
