Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane Heat Preview


The Adelaide Strikers begin their new BBL season with renewed optimism despite last year's seventh-placed finish. 

The Brisbane Heat are already underway after they romped to a 103-run win over the Melbourne Stars. That was a statement win and I'm backing another here.

  • Adelaide Strikers lost 9 of their 14 matches last season
  • Adelaide Strikers lost their final five matches of the 2022/23 season 
  • Brisbane Heat recorded a 103-win in their opening match of BBL13

Head To Head


The Heat have won their last two meetings with the Strikers, while they have also won six of their last 10 matchups. 

Adelaide Strikers Form 


It was a season to forget for the Adelaide Strikers in 2022/23 as they finished the campaign in seventh on the ladder and missed out on the finals.

A run of five defeats in a row in their final five games put paid to any hopes of a play-off spot last season, with the Strikers losing all momentum at the most crucial part of the competition.

Brisbane Heat Form 


The Brisbane Heat were in scintillating mood in game one as they hammered the Melbourne Stars in a win that will have the rest of the competition taking notice. 

Colin Munro's brutal 99 not out set the pace for the Heat as decent starts for Marnus Labuschagne (30) and Usman Khawaja (28) helped the Heat onto a daunting 214/3. 

Even with Glenn Maxwell in the side, a win for the Stars looked unlikely, with the Heat running out comfortable winners by 103 runs. 

Verdict

I am backing the Heat to secure their second win in a row and for Sam Billings to star with the bat.
