SIX vs HEA Dream11: It will be Sydney Sixers to take on Brisbane Heat in the 35th match of this BBL here at Carrara Oval in Queensland. Sydney Sixers are in a comfortable position and are sitting at No.2 in the points table. Young openers Philippe and Edwards have looked good at the top. The middle order comprising of James Vince and skipper Daniel Hughes have made notable contributions with the bat while Jordan Silk and Dan Christian have finished off the innings well. Sixers will miss the services of fast bowler Dwarshuis with the ball but they have the experience of Jake Ball and Jackson Bird to cover for it. Young legspinner Lloyd Pope looked impressive in the last game. The big loss in the last game was an alarming sign for Sixers who will look to get back to winning ways.
Brisbane Heat though, have been improving as the season has progressed. The return of the regular skipper Chris Lynn from the injury has boosted the team’s confidence. The batting lineup looks solid with young Bryant and Lynn at the top. The middle order has the experience of Denly and Burns. Peirson and Gregory have played some good hands in the lower order and Heat will hope for some quick runs from them at the death. Bartlett has made impression ever since his first match this season by picking up wickets with the new ball while Mujeeb has been a bankable option for the Heat with his variations. After a relatively slow start, the Heat seems to be finding the right combination and they will be looking to continue their winning momentum.
