Brisbane Heat are record holders.

But for the wrong reasons.

Four nights after a horrible collapse; the worst in BBL history, the Heat are back in action in front of their home fans. Such a pathetic batting display by a team full of ability warrants a response against a Sydney Sixers that ended the Stars’ winning run on Monday night.

This is a crucial game for Heat. Could you imagine the Heat missing the top five in an eight-team league with such batting power? In this vital clash, both sides welcome national talent. Marnus Labuschagne has arrived for the Heat; Steve Smith for the Sixers. Who will hold their nerve?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Marnus Labuschagne could be the big inclusion the Heat need. They have played without brains in recent games, and Labuschagne is the kind of player the others can bat around.
  • Steve Smith can have a strong impact for Sixers after a superb start to the Aussie summer a few months back: 53*, 13 and 80* vs SL and PAK.
  • Chris Lynn, who described the Heat’s last performance as “piss poor”, went ballistic against Sixers earlier this season, scoring 94 (35).
  • Lynn still inspires more confidence when batting first (94, 88, 31, 26) compared to batting second, despite his 15-ball 41 last game.
  • It is a big game for AB de Villiers. He is coming off two consecutive scores of two. Expect the South African superstar to come out firing.
  • Can Moises Henriques spoil the Heat’s evening? He is coming off a brilliant 72 (31) vs Stars, and has the second-most runs in Sixers-Heat matches (208) behind Lynn (238).
  • Also, Henriques was Player of the Match in the Sixers’ last visit to the Gabba, in 2017.
  • Daniel Hughes has made eight double-figure scores in his past nine knocks, without reaching fifty. Can he go on with the job in this one?
  • James Vince is in a similar boat, with eight double-figure scores in his last 10 knocks. He is coming off 41* (22) vs Stars.
  • The battle of the all-rounders will be fascinating. Tom Curran is equal second in the wicket-takers chart for BBL09 (17 wickets). Ben Cutting has 10 wickets in nine matches vs Sixers.
  • Nathan Lyon loves the Gabba. He took four wickets on his last BBL visit, and has constant success there for Australia.
  • Josh Lalor has nine wickets in five games vs Sixers. Ben Laughin has taken a wicket in all but one game he’s played in BBL09.
  • James Pattinson took 5/33 vs Adelaide Strikers at the Gabba last week.
  • Mujeeb ur Rahman is still wicketless in BBL09 (three games).

BBL09 Match 49: BH vs SS Dream11: Marnus, a key in?

Head-to-Head

Possible Playing 11

Marnus Labuschagne is in the Heat 13-man squad and should slot in for Joe Burns.

Brisbane Heat: 1. Sam Heazlett, 2. Chris Lynn (c), 3. AB de Villiers, 4. Marnus Labuschagne, 5. Matt Renshaw, 6. Ben Cutting, 7. Jimmy Peirson (wk), 8. Josh Lalor, 9. James Pattinson, 10. Ben Laughlin, 11. Mujeeb ur Rahman

Steve Smith is in the Sixers’ 13-man squad, and will be raring to go after his 98 and 131 vs India in the ODI series. He could slot in at three, with rumours that he could even open the innings.

Sydney Sixers: 1. Josh Philippe (wk), 2. Daniel Hughes, 3. Steve Smith, 4. James Vince, 5. Moises Henriques (c), 6. Jordan Silk, 7. Tom Curran, 8. Ben Dwarshuis, 9. Steve O’Keefe, 10. Jackson Bird, 11. Nathan Lyon

Gabba Pitch Report and Conditions

There have been a number of low scores at the Gabba in recent games. Hobart Hurricanes crawled to 126/9, Adelaide Strikers were bowled out for 110, followed by Brisbane Heat’s almighty collapse on Sunday.

There has been some turn for the spinners, but it has been more poor batting rather than any demons in the pitch, despite it being a tad slower than usual.

In terms of the weather, there is a slight chance of some showers during the day. There should be a full game, though.

Match Prediction

There has to be a response from Brisbane Heat. Their season depends on it.

The introduction of Marnus Labuschagne in the middle order might settle them well. Sixers provide a significant threat on their day, but have a feeling the Heat will be up for this and win it.
