A New Year begins with two sides looking for a change of fortunes.

While Brisbane Heat were superb in their last match vs Sydney Sixers, they largely underachieved in recent BBL seasons. So, now is the time to put a strong run of form together en-route to a playoffs appearance later this tournament – the minimum expected of this team that is awaiting the arrival of AB de Villiers.

Perth Scorchers were the most successful BBL side of the decade; three titles represents an outstanding return. However, it has been lean pickings in recent times, after finishing last in BBL08 and on the losing side three of four times in this campaign.

So, who will start 2020 on a high?

Head-to-Head

  • Matches 11, Brisbane Heat 6, Perth Scorchers 5.
  • Brisbane Heat have won four of the past five meetings.

Key to a Brisbane Heat win

How good was Chris Lynn last time out? His amazing display of power-hitting set the Heat up beautifully, with Matt Renshaw showing his T20 capabilities. With Tom Banton back in the lineup, the Heat can look forward to a strong start that they can build on throughout the innings.

Also, can the Heat bowlers get the better of a shaky Scorchers lineup? The Heat attack worked beautifully as a unit in Sydney last week, and if they can do so again, a second consecutive win can await.

BBL09 Match 18: BH vs PS Preview Dream11 – Chris Lynn to dominate?

Key to a Perth Scorchers win

The Scorchers’ batting has been under-par. Apart from a few encouraging moments, the Scorchers have struggled, which has played a key part in their slow start to BBL09. Here, the top five need to deliver to ensure momentum through the innings.

Also, can the Scorchers’ attack get the better of the Heat power-hitters? Tom Banton, Chris Lynn and Max Bryant will be key players at the top, so if the Scorchers can make early inroads, they get a foothold in the game.
