SIX vs HEA Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 28 | SS vs BH Dream11 Prediction Today | North Sydney Oval Pitch Report

After 433 runs, a sensational 62 off 23 in a second BBL game, that catch and endless drama on New Year’s Day, Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat are back at it. We could be in for another run-fest at North Sydney Oval with short boundaries and often a terrific batting pitch.

One can only hope the weather is kind. Rain is forecast in Sydney on Wednesday evening, creating doubts as to whether we will see a full match here. If we do, expect fireworks between two sides containing players who love hitting sixes.

In the context of the season, the Heat need to win. They are at the bottom of the table, and are in need of consistency as the season reaches its halfway point. For the Sixers, the aim will be to keep pace with the top two teams in the race for the playoffs.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Sydney Sixers:

  • Daniel Hughes has the most runs in Heat-Sixers matches (316) at an average of 28.73 and strike rate of 123.92.
  • Hughes has scored 52 runs off 35 balls against Neser without dismissal.
  • Josh Philippe was looking in dangerous form against Heat a few nights ago (27 off 13 balls). The score was close to his overall average against Heat (28.50), with 171 runs in eight knocks.
  • Jordan Silk is the Sixers’ leading run-scorer this season. The right-hander has struck 182 runs at an average of 36.40, including a brilliant 23-ball 41 against Heat.
  • Since the start of 2020, Silk has scored 280 runs at a strike rate of 150.5 between overs 17 and 20. He is dangerous in this period if he can get there.
  • Sean Abbott was expensive (1/46) in the New Year’s Day clash, but he often performs well against the Heat. He has 25 wickets in ten matches against them (avg. 11.76, econ. 7.91).
  • Hayden Kerr has taken ten wickets in his last six matches. He is almost always a factor with the bat too, and is coming off a 15-ball 27 in the New Year’s Day clash.

Brisbane Heat:

  • If Josh Brown gets going, watch out. He smashed a memorable 62 off 23 balls against the Sixers a few nights ago after two centuries recently in Queensland Premier cricket.
  • Brown hit 10 off three balls against Sean Abbott (one dismissal), 16 off six against Ben Dwarshuis, 12 off five against Jackson Bird and 18 off five against Hayden Kerr.
  • Nathan McSweeney hit 84 off 51 balls in the same game. He is having a good season to date, with 306 runs in the Sheffield Shield at an average of 43.71.
  • Sixers need to dismiss Colin Munro early. He is the Heat’s leading run-scorer this season (195), which includes 98 vs Thunder a few games ago.
  • Michael Neser has taken ten wickets in five matches in BBL 12 (SR 11.4).
  • Neser has dismissed Josh Philippe four times in 30 balls in the BBL. Philippe has scored 51 runs, so it promises to be an interesting matchup.
  • Mark Steketee was expensive a few nights ago (2/51), but he is a wicket-taker. The seamer has taken ten wickets in eight matches vs Sixers at an average of 22.40 and economy of 8.62.
  • Expect the Heat to bowl Steketee to Dan Hughes. He has dismissed the left-hander four times in 47 balls, conceding just 45.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 17, Sixers 13, Heat 4.
  • James Vince vs Brisbane Heat: 6 inns, 200 runs, avg. 33.33, SR 145.99.
  • Steve O’Keefe vs Brisbane Heat: 9 inns, 7 wickets, avg. 27.71, econ. 5.71.
  • In all T20s since the start of 2021, Chris Jordan has taken 42 wickets in 103.1 overs at the death. He concedes 9.75 per over, which is an economy rate the Sixers will welcome on a small ground.
  • Matt Kuhnemann will be key in limiting the runs on the fast-scoring North Sydney Oval. He took 2/31 on New Year’s Day, where he dismissed Moises Henriques and Hayden Kerr.

North Sydney Oval Pitch Report and Weather

Nice batting wicket. Very small boundaries. That is the summary of North Sydney Oval, which should see runs flow if the batsmen get in.

This will be the first ever men’s BBL match on this ground. In the WBBL in November, the average first innings score was 161.38, with the team batting first winning five of the eight games.
