We have now reached the point of the season where the Australian ODI players won’t be available as they travel to India for the upcoming ODI series.

One team affected is Hobart Hurricanes, with their star batsman D’Arcy Short now unavailable for a few games as he was picked as a replacement for the injured Sean Abbott. A positive is that their skipper Matthew Wade returns from Test duty; much needed given the loss of Riley Meredith to injury as well, plus their need for a win.

Brisbane Heat return home after matches on the road. The Sydney crowd were treated to some magnificent hitting in a rain-affected match a few nights ago. Tom Banton, now playing his second-last game of BBL09 before the arrival of AB de Villiers, will be out for another big outing.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Chris Lynn when the Heat bat first in BBL09: 94 (35), 88* (55) and 31 (13).
  • His 88* came against the Hurricanes last week in a 200+ score for the Heat. He has 433 runs vs Hurricanes at an average of 61.86 and SR 159.19.
  • Tom Banton was outstanding vs Sydney Thunder a few nights ago, scoring a 16-ball 50. Can he fire with Riley Meredith missing from the opposition?
  • Max Bryant vs Hurricanes last week: 65 (36).
  • Matt Wade in the BBL last season: 592 runs, avg. 42.28, SR: 146.89. However, he has to improve on his 44 runs in four innings vs Heat.
  • Ben McDermott will be crucial for the Hurricanes in the absence of D’Arcy Short. He has 99 runs in three games vs Heat, so has to build on his starts.
  • Caleb Jewell: 88 runs vs Heat in two games.
  • Matt Renshaw in BBL09: 156 runs and three wickets in four overs. Ben Cutting has 222 runs and 10 wickets in 13 games vs Hurricanes.
  • Who will step up for the Hurricanes with the ball? Riley Meredith and James Faulkner are out injured. Qais Ahmad will have a vital role to play.
  • Zahir Khan has taken at least one wicket in each of his last five games.
  • Mitch Swepson: Just one wicket in five games vs Hurricanes.
  • Ben Laughlin: At least one wicket in each of his last five games.

Head-to-Head

Key to a Brisbane Heat win

Power. The batting lineup, on paper, is one of the best in the League. However, with the Hurricanes missing key bowlers, it is crucial that the Heat batsmen don’t get complacent, but rather, build towards a strong total through effective partnerships.

Also, can the Heat bowlers limit the Hurricanes’ batting lineup; one that’s missing D’Arcy Short? Matt Wade, despite no T20 cricket in a while, will be a key wicket up front, putting pressure on a batting lineup that can struggle to find the boundary.

BBL09 Match 29: BH vs HH Preview Dream11: Tom Banton is a danger player.

Key to a Hobart Hurricanes win

It will take a team effort with the ball. Riley Meredith has often carried this attack in BBL09, so his injury comes as a massive blow. So, the young Nathan Ellis, along with solid domestic performer Scott Boland, need to lead the way with seam. Can they give Qais Ahmad a platform to work off?

Also, the Hurricanes top order is so crucial to their chances. Matt Wade, Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott will be required to rotate strike well, with boundaries added in to lift the scoring rate further. Come the final five overs, the Hurricanes need wickets in hand for a final launch.

Possible Playing 11

Joe Burns returns to the Heat squad. He could slot into the middle order, with Banton taking the gloves and Jimmy Peirson missing out.

Brisbane Heat: 1. Tom Banton (wk), 2. Max Bryant, 3. Chris Lynn (c), 4. Matt Renshaw, 5. Joe Burns, 6. Ben Cutting, 7. Jack Prestwidge, 8. Josh Lalor, 9. Mitch Swepson, 10. Ben Laughlin, 11. Zahir Khan

Hobart Hurricanes have so much BBL experience and quality missing. D’Arcy Short (ODI duty), James Faulkner (injured) and Riley Meredith (injured) are out. However, Matthew Wade returns and will skipper the team. Given the thin-looking attack, he and Milenko could be required to bowl multiple overs.

Hobart Hurricanes: 1. Matthew Wade (c), 2. Caleb Jewell, 3. Ben McDermott (wk), 4. George Bailey, 5. David Miller, 6. Simon Milenko, 7. Clive Rose, 8. Mac Wright/David Moody, 9. Nathan Ellis, 10. Qais Ahmad, 11. Scott Boland

Match Prediction

Brisbane Heat have lost all three matches when chasing in BBL09. But, one gets the feeling that no matter the toss outcome, the Heat should be too strong against a Hobart side decimated by key omissions.
