Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers Predictions


The Sixers can wrap up second spot on the ladder with a bonus point win. I'm backing them to get it against a Heat side which is ending the campaign in dire form.

  • Brisbane Heat have lost their last 5 matches and 10 of their 13 matches this season.
  • Sydney Sixers have won 12 of their 15 matches against Brisbane Heat.
  • Sydney Sixers have won of their 13 matches this season.

Head to Head


The Sixers have been dominant in this fixture, winning 12 of the 15 matches against the Heat.

Brisbane Heat Form


Brisbane Heat's finals hopes were over before they lost by six wickets to the ladder leading Perth Scorchers on Monday.

It has been a sorry end to the season for the Heat, who have lost five in a row and seven of their last eight matches.

The Heat lost to the Melbourne Renegades, Hobart Hurricanes, Adelaide Strikers, Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers in the space of a forgetful 11 days.

Brisbane Heat Injuries & Team News


Marnus Labuschagne is set for his first game of the season after returning from the Ashes.

Otherwise, the Heat are likely to stick with the same team that lost to the Scorcers with Fakhar Zaman and Mujeeb Ur Rahman having left the squad.

Squad: Xavier Bartlett, James Bazley, Max Bryant, Tom Cooper, Ben Duckett, Liam Guthrie, Sam Heazlett, Matt Kuhnemann, Marnus Labuschagne, Chris Lynn, Michael Neser, Jimmy Pierson, Will Prestwidge, Mark Steketee, Mitchell Swepson, Lachlan Pfeffer, Paddy Dooley

Sydney Sixers Form


The Sixers' slim hopes of finishing top of the BBL ladder were dashed when they were comprehensively beaten by Adelaide Strikers on Monday.

The Sixers saw a two-game winning run come to an end with an eight-wicket defeat at the Adelaide Oval.

It leaves the reigning champions level on points and in a fight with cross-town rivals the Thunder to finish second. A bonus point win would guarantee second spot.

Sydney Sixers Injuries & Team News


Jordan Silk and Stephen O'Keefe missed the last game against the Strikers, but could be available.

Nathan Lyon also returns to the Sixers fold for the final game following the Ashes.

Squad: Moises Henriques, Sean Abbott, Jackson Bird, Daniel Christian, Tom Curran, Ben Dwarshuis, Jack Edwards, Mickey Edwards, Daniel Hughes, Hayden Kerr, Nathan Lyon, Lawrence Neil-Smith, Stephen O'Keefe, Josh Philippe, Lloyd Pope, Jordan Silk, Todd Murphy
