HEA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 49 | BH vs HH Dream11 Prediction Today | Gabba Pitch Report

Brisbane Heat will be keeping a close eye on the Strikers-Scorchers game earlier in the day. A loss for the Strikers gives Heat the chance to leapfrog both Adelaide and Hobart Hurricanes into the top five, and how they handle the possibility will be interesting to see in front of their home fans.

That being said, it is also a crucial match for Hurricanes, making this an effective playoff match before the playoffs proper. Matthew Wade’s team were scorched in Perth a couple of days ago, and need to pick themselves up quickly in this crunch game. Eyes will be on their up-and-down top order, while the bowling attack needs to gel to make inroads into the Heat top order.

The Heat are coming off a thrilling last ball win against Stars, powered by Matt Renshaw’s 90*. Before that, they won away in Adelaide. Can they transfer that form to their home patch?

Match Details

  • Location: Gabba, Brisbane.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Brisbane Heat:

  • Usman Khawaja has struck 247 runs in eight career matches against Hurricanes (avg. 30.88, SR 128.65).
  • Josh Brown strikes at 222.22 in two matches so far at the Gabba. He looked in good touch on this ground against Scorchers, before he was bowled in unlucky fashion.
  • Matt Renshaw hit 90* (56) in the last match. He averages just 19.45 in 12 innings at the Gabba (214), so today is a chance to improve on that record.
  • James Bazley has enjoyed batting against the Hurricanes. In three matches, he has scored 124 runs at a strike rate of 161.04, without dismissal. He is yet to take a wicket in two innings.
  • Michael Neser has figures of 1/15 in 13 balls against Ben McDermott. The seamer has picked up the fourth-most wickets at the Gabba (19) at an average of 23.47 and strike rate of 16.63.

Hobart Hurricanes:

  • Ben McDermott hit 93 off 61 balls on this ground last season. But, it was against a depleted Heat team. He has scored just 43 runs in his other five innings at the Gabba.
  • Caleb Jewell can take advantage of a Heat attack that can leak runs quickly at home. He is striking at 159.35 this season, with three fifties in eight matches.
  • Matthew Wade has an excellent record against Michael Neser: 45 balls faced, 82 runs scored, one dismissal.
  • Wade will be looking to improve on his record vs Heat since January 2018: 6 inns, 106 runs, avg. 21.20, SR 112.77.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Nathan Ellis vs Heat: 5 inns, 5 wickets, avg. 35.20, econ. 9.26.

Gabba Brisbane Pitch Report and Weather

There are showers around Brisbane today, but it is less likely in the evening according to bom.gov.au.

It is typically a good T20 pitch at the Gabba, with plenty of carry and opportunity for the batsmen to play freely. In the last two games, Heat won a tight match against Sixers after smashing 224, before Scorchers chased down Heat’s 155 with a mammoth 22 balls left.

So, the team batting first may need 170-180 to feel in the game.
