Adelaide Strikers – BBL match prediction

In 10 matches, the former has scored 394 runs while Short is right behind with 379 runs. They have received plenty of help from Aaron Hardie in the middle and the trio will play a key role with the bat. As for the bowlers, Wes Agar has proven to be the backbone for Strikers. In the past 9 matches, he has 13 wickets to his name. His companion, Henry Thornton, has to been exceptional with his bowling. In 8  matches, he has a whopping 16 wickets to his name.

Brisbane Heat – BBL match prediction

On the other hand, the Brisbane-based franchise have had their hopes laid upon southpaw Colin Munro and Jimmy Peirson. The former has 278 runs in 8 recent games while the latter has amassed 236 runs in his ten matches. They really need the batters to fire as finishing at the bottom of the table will be an insult to injury. Meanwhile, the bowling hasn’t been helpful in their recent fixtures. In the past 9 matches, Michael Neser & Mark Steketee have 24 scalps combined. They have been playing a key role but haven’t been delivering. The Brisbane Heat have a brilliant squad but have failed to capitalize on their strengths. A win here could give them the confidence they need desperately.
