Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder Match Pitch Report
The pitch of Gabba Brisbane Stadium is batting friendly, that is the batsmen get good help on this pitch. Big scores can also be made on this pitch. Many times on this pitch, if the bowler gets a wicket early, then the bowlers dominate the batsmen, due to which low scores are sometimes seen.
What to expect:
Brisbane Heat: It has been an excellent start to the season from Colin Munro’s side. They defeated the Melbourne Renegades by 6 wickets in the last game and now sit at the top of the points table. Munro would like his side to continue with the same form and retain their top spot on the points table with a win.
Openers Colin Munro and Josh Brown have done well in the tournament, and the side will need a good start from this pair. The middle order is strong, and they will expect runs from Sam Billings, Nathan McSweeney, and Matt Renshaw. The side bats deep, and they expect runs from Paul Walter and Xavier Bartlett in the lower middle order.
The side will expect good spells from Michael Neser and Spencer Johnson, as Sydney Thunder have big hitters at the top. Matthew Kuhnemann bowled a good spell in the last game and will look to keep the scoring under check in the middle overs with Xavier Bartlett. Mitchell Swepson and Paul Walter add variety to this attack.
Brisbane Heat Key Players
- Matt Renshaw – The 27-year-old English-born Australian international is in fantastic form across all formats and hit five fours in his unbeaten innings on Thursday.
- Paul Walter – The English all-rounder was a relatively unknown player in Australia ahead of this year’s BBL but he hit a 15-ball 30 not out and took the Player of the Match Award against Melbourne Renegades.
- Xavier Bartlett – The 25-year-old pace bowler continued his impressive start to this campaign by bowling Tom Rogers with a yorker in Match 10.
- Mitchell Swepson – The spinner has been a key part of Brisbane Heat’s strong results so far this season and he will enjoy the dry pitch at the Gabba in this game.
Probable XI: Josh Brown, Colin Munro(c), Nathan McSweeney, Sam Billings(w), Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mitchell Swepson
Brisbane Heat Squad: Josh Brown, Colin Munro(c), Nathan McSweeney, Sam Billings(w), Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mitchell Swepson, Max Bryant, Jordan Buckingham, Hugo Burdon
Sydney Thunder: Chris Green’s side broke its two-game losing spree to register the first win for the side this season. They defeated the Melbourne Stars by 5 wickets, and the side would like to use this confidence as they head into a very tough match. Green would need a good show from his bowlers to win this game.
Alex Hales and Cameron Bancroft set up a 78-run stand in the last game, and the side will expect a similar show from them. Jason Sangha, Alex Ross, and Oliver Davies make the middle order formidable and need to do well in this game. Daniel Sams, Nathan McAndrew, and Chris Green must add quick runs in the lower middle order for the side to win.
The bowling attack hasn’t been at its best, and the side will need a good show from Chris Green and Liam Hatcher in this game. Daniel Sams picked 4 wickets in the last game, and he will be confident. He must do well in the middle overs with McAndrew. Sangha and Zaman Khan must do well in the supporting role for the side to win.
Sydney Thunder Key Players
- Alex Hales – The former England all-format international has improved on his previous score in all three of his innings in this campaign and struck three sixes in Saturday’s victory.
- Cameron Bancroft – The keeper-batter has scored 129 runs from his three innings so far in this year’s BBL and hit four boundaries against Melbourne Stars in Match 12.
- Daniel Sams – The left-arm fast-medium bowler went wicketless in the last game against Brisbane Heat but got the key wickets of Thomas Rogers and Beau Webster on Saturday.
- Zaman Khan – The right-arm pace bowler has had an impressive start to this campaign after returning figures of 2/31 against Brisbane Heat, 1/43 against Adelaide Strikers, and 3/24 against Melbourne Stars.

Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder Match Prediction
Sydney Thunder will arrive in Queensland in a much better frame of mind ahead of this game. But whether they have enough talent throughout their team to beat an unbeaten Brisbane Heat is another question. Cameron Bancroft and Alex Hales are both in good form at the top of the order and Daniel Sams was at his best in the last game. However, in front of their home crowd, we are expecting Brisbane Heat to put in another strong performance and we are backing them to get their fourth win of the campaign.
We expect the Brisbane Heat to win this match.

Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Paul Walter, Xavier Bartlett, and Mitchell Swepson are our bowling tips for the Brisbane Heat. Left-arm medium-pacer Walter dismissed Jake Fraser McGurk, Aaron Finch, and Will Sutherland in the last game and has now taken 6 wickets in the tournament. Swepson is an experienced spinner at this venue and is never afraid to fly the ball to encourage the batters to take him on.
With the ball, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, and Zaman Khan are our picks for Sydney Thunder. Khan had the pleasure of bowling Glenn Maxwell with a yorker on Saturday as well as getting Hilton Cartwright with the same delivery! Skipper Green opened the bowling in the win over Melbourne Stars and got an early wicket of Sam Harper to take his T20 dismissal tally to 161.
