BH vs SYT Team Previews

Brisbane Heat

In the Big Bash League 2021, Brisbane Heat had a terrible start, but just as they were about to give up hope, they scored a much-needed victory over Melbourne Renegades. Even so, they are still a long way away from making an impact in the competition and will need at least two consecutive victories to reclaim their place in the top four as far as standings go.

Currently, the Brisbane Heat are seventh in the NRL standings with four points and one win from three games, respectively. Although they have lost most of their games, their net run rate stands at a manageable -0.061, which is good news for them. Their net run rate will likely improve if they win this match; however this is only a minor factor in their overall standings now.

Having lost to Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers in consecutive matches, Brisbane Heat finally came into their own as they beat Melbourne Renegades by five wickets with 19 balls remaining. After a promising start, the Renegades were bowled out for just 140 on a good wicket by their bowlers. There was a point during the chase when they appeared to be in some difficulty, but Sam Heazlett’s calm and responsible innings saw them home with plenty of resources to spare.

Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, and Ben Duckett make up Brisbane Heat’s swashbuckling top order, which is arguably their most potent asset. Having the likes of Jimmy Peirson and James Bazley on hand could prove to be a significant advantage in a game’s final moments. Brisbane Heat’s bowling attack is also well-balanced after a strong outing last time out. All but Xavier Bartlett performed admirably against the Renegades, and as a team, they should feel confident.

Similar to last year’s beginning, Brisbane Heat went on to do exceptionally well in the competition. Brisbane Heat’s recent win shows that they’re on a similar path, and if their veteran players can play to their potential, they’ll be a force to be reckoned with throughout the rest of the tournament.

141 runs were chased down in 17 overs by the Brisbane Heat to end their losing streak. Prior to this match, Sam Heazlett and Chris Lynn played aggressive shots to help lead their run chase alongside Xavier Barlett, Ben Duckett, and Max Bryant. It was Bazlett who was the most effective bowler for the visitors, who restricted the opposition to just 140 runs in their 20 overs. Their batting order hasn’t been able to put up big totals thus far. Barlett and Swepson both contributed with one wicket apiece in the win. Both Liam Guthrie and Mujeeb had impressive bowling records of 8-0-291-1.

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder are one point ahead of Brisbane Heat in the standings, but anything can happen if they win their upcoming game. Assuming Thunder win, they’ll move up to the third spot on the ladder, while the Heat lose and fall below them. Thunder currently sits with a five-point lead and a net run rate of -0.122 in the NBA.

Sydney Thunder had an impressive start to the season, defeating Brisbane Heat convincingly, but then fell victim to Melbourne Stars in back-to-back defeats. Despite being in a good position to do so at one point during their first match against the Stars, they were unable to chase down a competitive total of 165. In their second match against the Stars, they were beaten by six wickets with 17 balls to spare as the Stars successfully completed the target.

Sydney Thunder’s inability to score quickly has been evident in each of the team’s first three games. On a flat pitch, they were unable to score more than 151 in the first innings of their previous match. They might not have made it to double digits if it weren’t for Alex Ross’ brilliant 77-run knock. Sydney Thunder, on the other hand, have performed well on the bowling front, with their performance in the most recent match serving as an exception.

Statistically, the Sydney Thunder are a solid team, but the bulk of their batting power is concentrated in the middle order. Sam Whiteman and Matthew Gilkes, for example, are both in their early twenties. The pressure is on Alex Hales to ensure that Thunder do not lose too many wickets early on in their innings, as well as to get Thunder off to a fast start. When things get a little tense in the middle order for the Reds, Sam Billings, Alex, Ross, Daniel Sams, and Ben Cutting provide much-needed support. Daniel Sams, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Ben Cutting, and Nathan McAndrew are all contributing well to Sydney Thunder’s bowling.

Overall, the Thunder’s firepower is concentrated in the middle, which could be a concern for them, but if their young players can perform well at the top, Sydney Thunder will be in good shape.

Alex Ross led Sydney Thunder to a respectable 151/5 from 65/4 after 12 overs with 77 runs from 49 balls and four boundaries. Mathew Gikes and Sam Billings have both been excellent batsmen this season, helping Alex Hales and Daniel Sams both score 28 and 22 runs, respectively. Despite their bowling unit’s best efforts, the opposition was able to chase down the total in just 17.2 overs. Tanveer Sangha scored four goals and two assists for a final score of 4-1-20-2. Ben Cutting and Nathan McAndrew each claimed a wicket for the bowlers. It’s time for Gurinder Sandhu, Daniel Sams, and Chris Green to work on their ball handling.
