Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane Heat Predictions


Both sides are in similar form, trading wins and losses in their last four matches. The Strikers return home to Adelaide and that might just give them the slight edge as they look for a third straight win over Brisbane Heat.

  • Adelaide Strikers have lost 2 of their last 3 matches.
  • Adelaide Strikers have won the last 2 matches against the Brisbane Heat.
  • The Strikers won by 10 wickets in last year's fixture at the Adelaide Oval.
  • Brisbane Heat have lost 2 of their last 3 matches.
  • Chris Lynn has top scored for the Heat in the last 4 matches.

Head to Head


The Adelaide Strikers have won seven of 12 matches played against the Heat having won the last two played between the sides.

Adelaide recorded a ten-wicket thrashing of the Heat in BBL09 in the last meeting at the Adelaide Oval. They won by two runs in a final ball thriller at the Gabba in December earlier this campaign.

Adelaide Strikers Form


The Strikers sit in sixth spot, one place above the Heat, after an inconsistent run of form in their last four games.

Adelaide won against the Melbourne Renegades before losing the rematch. And they did the same against Melbourne Stars, winning at home before losing at the MCG last Friday.

The Strikers had beaten the Stars by five wickets with an over to spare at the Adelaide Oval. 

But without star spinner Rashid Khan and veteran bowler Peter Siddle, they were thumped by 111 runs in Melbourne. 

The Stars posted 179/2 on the back of Andre Russell's 89 not out, before dismissing the Strikers for 68.

Peter Siddle should return after missing the last two matches with a broken hand. Harry Conway was not selected for the defeat to the Melbourne Stars but could return.

Brisbane Heat Form


Brisbane Heat suffered a disappointing defeat to the Perth Scorchers on Tuesday to slip to seventh place on the BBL10 ladder.

Chris Lynn's side had won four of their previous five matches to move firmly into the finals picture. But a 59-run loss at Marvel Stadium was a setback.

Colin Munro starred for the Scorchers with 82 as Perth posted 174/5 batting first. Morne Morkel led the way with the ball with 2/24 for the Heat.

Lynn (27) and Joe Denly (26) had Brisbane well placed in the run chase. But they went from 96/4 to 115 all out with only Lewis Gregory (20) reaching double figures.

Brisbane Heat Team News


James Bazley came in as an X-Factor for Xavier Bartlett in the defeat to the Scorchers, and had an impact with the ball. Will he return to the starting line-up?

Ben Laughlin is still waiting for his chance. Could that come against his former side at a ground the paceman knows well?

Verdict

The Strikers are backed to win at home. They beat the Heat by 10 wickets at the Adelaide Oval last season and that will be fresh in the memories of Brisbane on their return to the venue.

Chris Lynn has been top runscorer for the Heat in the last four matches and should be backed again.
