Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat Match Pitch Report
The Manuka Oval surface is one where both batters and bowlers get some assistance. The fast bowlers play a crucial part in the initial overs as they will receive some movement with the new ball. Meanwhile, the batters will have to judge the ball and play their shots well. The toss-winning captain might want to bat first.
What to expect:
Sydney Thunder: Sydney Thunder have the former England international Alex Hales at the top of their order, a player with a brilliant record in not only white-ball cricket but also in the BBL where he has hit over 2000 runs. However, the 34-year-old was very disappointing for Team Abu Dhabi, over the last fortnight in the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament, and finished with four consecutive single-figure scores so he will need to snap into form for Thunder.
With the ball, there is an excellent variety of bowlers in the line-up with spin from Tanveer Sangha, left-arm pace from Daniel Sams, and right-arm pace from Nathan McAndrew.
Thunder were knocked out of the competition in the Eliminator by Brisbane Heat in the last BBL so they have the opportunity for immediate revenge in this game.
Sydney Thunder Key Players
- Oliver Davies – The 23-year-old batter had a breakthrough season last year hitting three half-centuries and a strike rate of 133.73 across the campaign.
- Matthew Gilkes – The left-hander doubles up as the wicket-keeper and opener for Brisbane Heat and has a top score of 93 across his T20 career.
- Chris Green– the captain and off-spinner made his international debut in India last month and has the ability to influence the game with both bat and ball.
- Nathan McAndrew – The bowling all-rounder is often given the ball during the opening and final overs of the innings. He took 3 wickets during an over in a BBL game last season.
Probable XI: Alex Hales, Cameron Bancroft, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Chris Green(c), Oliver Davies, Matthew Gilkes(w), Liam Doddrell, Nathan McAndrew, Liam Hatcher, Zaman Khan
Sydney Thunder Squad: Alex Hales, Cameron Bancroft, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Chris Green(c), Oliver Davies, Matthew Gilkes(w), Liam Doddrell, Nathan McAndrew, Liam Hatcher, Zaman Khan, Blake Nikitaras, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Toby Gray
Brisbane Heat: After the Heat players twiddled their thumbs throughout Saturday evening in Adelaide, the entire squad will be desperate to see some action in Canberra on Tuesday evening.
Colin Munro has finished unbeaten in each of his last three innings and will still be kicking himself for finishing on 99 not out in the opening game win over Melbourne Stars at the Gabba. Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne both drop out from the side ahead of the Test series with Pakistan so there will be opportunities at the top of the order.
Xavier Bartlett, Mitchell Swepson and Michael Neser all come into this game after impressive bowling performances in their opening match.
Brisbane Heat Key Players
- Colin Munro – The opener has struck over 10300 T20 runs across his career and will be looking to build on his 99 not out in the win over Melbourne Stars.
- Sam Billings – The England all-format international keeper-batter averaged 40.57 in the 2021-22 BBL and is recognized as a clean striker of the ball.
- Xavier Bartlett – The 24-year-old right-arm fast-medium bowler had an excellent start to this BBL 2023 with two wickets in the 15th over of Melbourne Stars’ innings.
- Michael Neser – The 33-year-old bowler picked up two wickets in an over to get Brisbane Heat off to the perfect start in the field on Thursday.
Probable XI: Colin Munro(c), Josh Brown, Sam Billings(w), Jimmy Peirson, Max Bryant, Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann
Brisbane Heat Squad: Colin Munro(c), Sam Billings(w), Max Bryant, Paul Walter, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Spencer Johnson, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Josh Brown, Nathan McSweeney, Jimmy Peirson, Jordan Buckingham, Matt Renshaw

Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat Match Prediction
With most pundits expecting a tight fixture in Canberra, this game could well go the distance and be concluded in the 20th over of the second innings. Brisbane Heat got off to an excellent start against Melbourne Stars but we expect Sydney Thunder to be a tougher opponent. Our prediction is for a close match with Sydney Thunder’s batting line-up doing enough to win the game.
We expect the Sydney Thunder to win this match.
