  • Melbourne Stars have a very destructive batting line up . Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and Nicolas Pooran are in top form.

BRH vs MLS Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Brisbane Heat will take on Melbourne Stars in the 32nd match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Carrara Oval and is set to begin at 8:20 PM local time.

Brisbane Heat have picked up some momentum and now have 3 wins in their last 4 games. Chris Lynn has returned from the injury which has further boosted their batting line up. 

Joe Denly and Joe Burns got 50’s in the last match which is a great sign. Players like Max Bryant, Lewis Gregory and Jimmy Pierson also need to start contributing now.

In the bowling department, Xavier Bartlett, Jack Wildermuth, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mark Steketee form a strong bowling unit that’s been in fine form. Only if Heat’s batsmen can get the runs, we’ll have a very competitive game.

Melbourne Stars managed to end their losing streak as they picked up an impressive win over Hobart Hurricanes.

The batting, that was their issue in the last few games came good as Marcus Stoinis, Nicolas Pooran and Hilton Cartwright batted well. On paper, they have brutal batting line up and if everyone can contribute with the bat, they’ll be very contain.

The bowling has not been the best but still, they can do away with that if their batsmen can come good.

Brisbane Heat Team News & Playing 11

BRH Team News

Brisbane Heat have named an unchanged squad to take on Melbourne Stars in Queensland. Also, we expect them to field the same XI 

BRH Key Players

  • Chris Lynn - Chris Lynn returned after an injury and looked in ominous form in a short yet entertaining knock of 30. We expect him to play an even bigger knock in the next match.
  • Joe Denly - Joe Denly batted brilliantly in the last match and scored a vital 50 for his team. Now since he’s some runs behind him, we feel that he can play a very important role in Brisbane Heat’s journey to the playoffs.
  • Mark Steketee - Mark Steketee continued his good run and picked up two crucial wickets in the last match/ We expect him to pose a stern challenge to the Stars batsmen.

Melbourne Stars have announced that they’ll go in with the same squad that played against Sydney Thunders.

MLS Key Players

  • Marcus Stoinis - Marcus Stonis played a brutal knock of 97 in the last match of BBL 2020-21. Though he’s been a little consistent he can be a match winner on his day. We expect him to come good in the next match as well.
  • Glenn Maxwell - Glenn Maxwell has been in top form in the BBL 2020. He’s bailed them out of trouble on many occasion and we back him to have a game against Heat
  • Adam Zampa - Adam Zampa will enjoy bowling on the slow Queensland wicket. We see him as the trump card for Stars in the next game.

Final Verdict

BRH vs MLS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Nicolas Pooran at 9.5 is a good option. He’s played some very good innings and is a match winner on his day

  • Batsmen

    Chris Lynn at 10.5, Hilton Cartwright, Max Bryant and Joe Denly at 8.5 will form our batting order. We all know how destructive Chris Lynn can be and we’ll definitely have him in our side. Joe Denly returned to form and scored a fifty in the last match. Max Bryant has got a lot of starts and we feel that a big inning is just around the corner. Hilton Cartwright is also a very good player who’s in some decent form.

  • All rounder

    Marcus Stonis and Glenn Maxwell will add power to our team. Both are the best players from Melbourne Stars. Stoinis scored a 91 in the last game while Maxwell too have been in top form with the bat.

  • Bowlers

    Adam Zampa at 9.0, Billy Stanlake, Mark Steketee at 8.5 and Liam Hatcher at 8.0 are quality options for our bowlers. The bowling line up has been selected considering the form and the conditions.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Chris Lynn is our preferred captain while Marcus Stoinis can be backed as his deputy

BRH vs MLS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Max Bryant, Chris Lynn (c), Joe Denly, Hilton Cartright

  • All Rounder:Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis(vc) 

  • Wicket Keeper:Nicolas Pooran
