Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers Match Pitch Report
The fast bowlers get good help on the pitch of Carrara Oval stadium because due to the good bounce and speed given to the fast bowlers on this pitch, the batsmen face difficulty in playing the fast bowlers’ balls and in the beginning of the match, the fast bowlers’ balls swing. But as the match progresses, the batsmen can score good runs and the spin bowlers do not get any help on the pitch of this stadium.
What to expect:
Brisbane Heat: 2 losses in 2 games especially in the business end of the tournament don’t bode particularly well for the Heat, who’re already suffering from the exodus of players from the BBL to ILT20 and for national commitments. Although they did well to restrict the Sixers to well under 170, which their in-form bowlers have yet to concede this season, their batting was out of sorts in their reply.
Brisbane Heat Key Players
- Jimmy Peirson- the keeper-batter hit another two boundaries in his 26 runs from 25 balls at the top of the order in the defeat against Sydney Sixers.
- Matt Renshaw- the Australia international struck two sixes in his 10-ball innings in the Qualifier and he needs 26 runs to bring up 1500 T20 runs.
- Xavier Bartlett- the right-arm fast-medium bowler is yet to go wicketless in this year’s tournament and he will be looking to maintain that record in this clash.
- Michael Neser- the bowling all-rounder has come into form towards the end of this campaign with seven wickets from his last three games.
Probable XI: Josh Brown, Jimmy Peirson(w), Nathan McSweeney(c), Matt Renshaw, Max Bryant, Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann
Brisbane Heat Squad: Josh Brown, Jimmy Peirson(w), Nathan McSweeney(c), Matt Renshaw, Max Bryant, Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Jordan Buckingham, Charlie Wakim, Jack Wildermuth
Adelaide Strikers: Resurgence is the apt word for how the Strikers are currently going at it in the BBL. From teetering at the bottom half of the table a couple of weeks ago, they have now surged forward in an emphatic fashion to win five matches on the bounce and make it to the challenger. They’re one win away from making it to the grand finale and repeating the heroics of their 2017-18 BBL campaign.
Adelaide Strikers Key Players
- Matthew Short- although the skipper made only a run a ball 13 on Saturday but is still averaging an impressive 65.25 in this competition.
- Jake Weatherald- we saw another half-century from the 29-year-old left-hander in the win over Perth Scorchers and he has now made 183 runs from his last three innings in BBL 2023-24.
- Cameron Boyce- the 34-year-old leg-spinner has taken eight wickets from the last four games with his best figures of 3/20 coming against the Scorchers.
- Lloyd Pope- there is no bowler in stronger form than the 24-year-old who has returned figures of 4/22 and 4/24 in the wins over Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers.
Probable XI: Matthew Short(c), D Arcy Short, Jake Weatherald, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen(w), Ben Manenti, James Bazley, Henry Thornton, David Payne, Cameron Boyce, Lloyd Pope
Adelaide Strikers Squad: Matthew Short(c), D Arcy Short, Jake Weatherald, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen(w), Ben Manenti, James Bazley, Henry Thornton, David Payne, Cameron Boyce, Lloyd Pope, Wes Agar, Josh Kann
Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers Match Winner
Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers Match Prediction
Lloyd Pope has been unplayable for Adelaide Strikers over recent games but the Carrara Oval may not be the most receptive to spin bowling. On the other hand, we know that Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, and Spencer Johnson will be keen to bowl again on this pitch after their performances in the play-off clash with the Sixers. We are predicting a close match with Brisbane Heat winning and progressing to the final.
We expect the Brisbane Heat to win this match.

Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers Match Both Team Top Batsmen
For Brisbane Heat, Josh Brown, Jimmy Peirson, and Matt Renshaw are our batting choices. 31-year-old keeper-batter Peirson has hit over 1700 T20 runs and he will be looking to make his sixth T20 half-century in this his 100th innings in the format. Opener Brown arrived in Brisbane Heat’s side mid-way through the last BBL and he has impressed with his quick scoring at a strike-rate of 133.85 so far.
Our batting picks are Matthew Short, Jake Weatherald and D‘Arcy Short for Adelaide Strikers. After starting the season with three single-figure scores, Weatherald is now in seemingly unstoppable form with the bat. Matthew Short is two games away from playing in his 100th T20 match. With over 2350 runs in this format, he will be hoping a win in this game will bring his 100th fixture in the BBL final.
Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, and Spencer Johnson are our tips with the ball for the Brisbane Heat. Johnson produced a fantastic performance against Sydney Sixers delivering a maiden and ending with figures of 2/14 from his four overs. Neser continued his up-turn in form with the wickets of Jack Edwards, Jordan Silk, and Sean Abbott in the play-off defeat against the Sixers.
For Adelaide Strikers, David Payne, Lloyd Pope and Cameron Boyce are our recommendations with the ball. Payne has not played an international fixture since June 2022 but he took another wicket in the win over Perth Scorchers which took him to 198 T20 dismissals. With only five appearances in this year’s BBL but with the wickets coming at a rapid rate, it is no surprise to see Pope with a strike rate of 9.27.
