Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane Heat Match Pitch Report
In the early phases, fast bowlers stand to gain from the favorable bounce, while as the match progresses, batsmen can exploit the pitch’s consistent bounce to execute their shots with assurance. Furthermore, spin bowlers could discover support in the latter part of the match.
What to expect:
Adelaide Strikers: BBL12 proved to be a letdown for the Strikers, as they managed just five victories in 14 appearances, failing to secure a spot in the finals. This, was despite an outstanding performance by top-order batsman Matt Short, who scored an impressive 458 runs at an average of 35.23 in 14 innings.
Chris Lynn, of course, can be the game-changer for the team at the top. The explosive opener partnered with Matthew Short in four second-wicket stands, each exceeding 72 runs, for a total of over 400 runs and an astounding strike rate in the 140s.
The Strikers will be excited with the inclusion of left-handed batsman D’arcy Short, who will be looking to recapture his brilliant performance in the blue jersey. Short, recognized with back-to-back Player of the Tournament honors in BBL7 and BBL8 while playing for the Hurricanes holds a unique record as the only player to achieve more than 600 runs and secure double-digit wickets in a single campaign.
Last season, the Strikers’ top bowler was seamer Wes Agar, who took 18 wickets at an average of 20.27. In the absence of star bowler Rashid Khan, Agar will have a job on his hands this time. Ben Manenti and Cameron Boyce are the senior spinners and are expected to play an important role.
Adelaide Strikers Key Players
- Matt Short – Only Aaron Hardie hit more runs than the Adelaide Strikers opener in last year’s tournament where he hit one hundred and two half-centuries.
- Chris Lynn – The experienced top-order batter hit 416 runs across the 2022-23 BBL and is the all-time leading run scorer in the tournament with over 3400 runs.
- Henry Thornton – The right-arm quick bowler has taken 30 wickets from 17 games and he will enjoy playing on this pitch in Adelaide which will offer assistance for his style of bowling.
- Wes Agar – the 26-year-old fast bowler has taken 74 T20 wickets and returned figures of 4/6 in one match. He will fancy his chances of picking up wickets against this Brisbane Heat line-up.
Probable XI: Matthew Short(c), Chris Lynn, D Arcy Short, Jake Weatherald, Harry Nielsen(w), Adam Hose, James Bazley, Jamie Overton, Wes Agar, Brendan Doggett, Cameron Boyce
Adelaide Strikers Squad: Matthew Short(c), Chris Lynn, D Arcy Short, Jake Weatherald, Harry Nielsen(w), Adam Hose, James Bazley, Jamie Overton, Wes Agar, Brendan Doggett, Cameron Boyce, Ben Manenti, Henry Thornton
Brisbane Heat: After a disappointing loss in the BBL final of the previous season, Brisbane Heat turned the tide with a nearly flawless showing in their season opener, dominating the Melbourne Stars and securing a convincing 103-run victory. Colin Munro hit an unbeaten 99 as Brisbane Heat beat Melbourne Stars despite a brief flurry from an injured Glenn Maxwell.
Last year, Colin Munro, Khawaja, Matt Renshaw, Jimmy Peirson, and Josh Brown all notched up over 200 runs for the Heat. Significantly, all but Peirson did so with a striking rate of 135 or more, painting a vivid picture of the Heat’s formidable performance during crucial stages.
While there may be regret for not being able to bring back Sam Hain, the proficiency of Sam Billings, who led Oval Invincibles to triumph in the men’s Hundred and clinched the T20 Blast title with Kent, is more than sufficient for the task at hand.
Michael Neser leads the bowling attack, having taken the second-most wickets in BBL 12 with an impressive tally of 26 wickets. Spencer Johnson, on the other hand, had a standout year, claiming nine wickets in the previous BBL season, making international headlines with a stellar 3 for 1 against Manchester Originals in The Hundred, and is set to contribute to Australia’s T20 World Cup journey after making his international debut in South Africa.
Brisbane Heat Key Players
- Colin Munro – The former New Zealand international hit nine fours and five sixes as he took the attack to the Melbourne Stars bowlers on Thursday.
- Sam Billings – The keeper-batter will take on the captaincy role in Usman Khawaja’s absence. He is an attacking batter and contributed 18 runs at a strike rate of 163.63 in the opening game.
- Mitchell Swepson – The leg-spinner may find the Adelaide pitch not quite as receptive to spin as the Gabba but he will be full of confidence after dismissing Glenn Maxwell and Josh Burns in Match 1.
- Michael Neser – The experienced bowling all-rounder took his 100th and 101st BBL dismissals on Thursday with the big wickets of openers Thomas Rogers and Sam Harper.
Probable XI: Colin Munro(c), Charlie Wakim, Sam Billings(w), Max Bryant, Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Jack Wood
Brisbane Heat Squad: Colin Munro(c), Charlie Wakim, Sam Billings(w), Max Bryant, Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Jack Wood, Josh Brown, Jack Wildermuth, Lachlan Hearne
