|Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat – Match 54 - BBL|
|Date||25th January 2023|
|Time||8:10 AM IST, 2:40 AM GMT 1:40 PM LOCAL|
|Venue||Aurora Stadium, Launceston|
Hobart Hurricanes face a must-win situation in the final league game. With five wins in 13 matches, they are languishing in the bottom half of the table. They need a big win to stay alive in the tournament. A win will not guarantee a place in the playoffs but if some other results go their way, they may go through.
Meanwhile, Brisbane Heat have six wins to show and a win against Hobart Hurricane will put them in a good position. Given the fact that a lot of teams are fighting for the final two spots, the net run rate will play a big role and both teams will be eyeing to register big wins.
The wicket should be slightly on the slower side and run scoring will not be that easy, especially against the spinners.
The weather will be cloudy and the temperature will range between 24 and 13.

|Wicketkeeper||Jimmy Peirson, Matthew Wade|
|Batters||Usman Khawaja, Sam Hain, Tim David (C)|
|All-rounders||Michael Neser (VC), Matt Renshaw, D Short|
|Bowlers||Matthew Kuhnemann, Rilee Meredith, Patrick Dooley|
Sam Hain has picked up some good form late in the tournament. He scored a blazing 73 in the last game to script a memorable win for Heat against Melbourne Stars.
Matt Renshaw scored 90 against Melbourne Stars not so long ago. He has blown hot and cold in the tournament but in a must-win game, a good show is expected of Khawaja.
Tim David is a game-changer for any team he plays for. He is someone who tonks the ball big and is brutal in death overs.
With 18 wickets in 12 games, Michael Neser has been very good for the Heat and the team will look up to him to lead the bowling attack once again.
Rilee Meredith has taken 20 wickets in 13 games and has been phenomenal with the ball for Hurricanes, who will be expecting another inspirational show from their ace pacer.
