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

Sydney Thunder looks unstoppable at the moment. They’re on a juggernaut and are coming back from 5 consecutive wins. Not only the victories but the manner in which they’ve decimated their opposition makes them a very dangerous opposition.

Brisbane Heat on the other hand put up a clinical performance against a strong Sydney Sixers and would want to leave no stone unturned to pocket another victory. 
Read on as we preview Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder. The match will be the 28th game of the BBL 2020-21 and will be played at the Gabba, Brisbane. It is scheduled to begin at 6:15 PM local time

Apart from the two losses against Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder in their first two games, Brisbane Heat hasn’t been that bad. They’ve a 2 run loss, a 4 wicket victory, a 1 run loss and another 4 wicket victory in their last 4 matches. Heats could have easily won all of their last 4 matches but wasn’t the case two be. 
Bowling from Brisbane Heat has been very good throughout the tournament. Xavier Bartlett, Mark Steketee, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Lewis Gregory, all have been very good with the ball. The all rounders have also supported their main bowlers to perfection. 

The major concern for Brisbane Heat is the form of their batsmen who’ve been very inconsistent. Even in the last match against Sydney Sixers, Max Bryant, Joe Denly, Sam Heazlett, Jimmy Pierson, all got good starts but failed to convert them in to a big score. 

This is something Heat’s need to work on if they’re to emerge as a contender for a place in the playoffs. Chris Lynn is expected to make a return into the playing XI which will be a massive boost for the Heats.

They’ll be up against Sydney Thunder’s who’ve been sensational in the tournament, comprehensively winning their last 5 games. A net run rate of +1.880 and 5 wins in 6 games shows that Sydney Thunders by far have been the best team of the tournament.

Usman Khwaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson, Olivier Davies are in top form with the bat. 

The presence of Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting and Chris Green adds a lot of depth in the batting order while giving them plenty of handy bowling options.
 Tanvir Sangha has emerged as one of the main assets with the ball while Chris Tremain and Nathan McAndrew have performed brilliantly in the limited opportunity they’ve got.

Overall, Sydney Thunder look an immaculately balanced team with quality in their batting and bowling department and are big favourites to win the match.

BRH vs SYT Toss Prediction

Gabba is not a wicket where teams prefer to chase. Both skipper would want to win the toss and bat. 

Pitch Report 

Gabba is one of the fastest wickets in Australia. It has pace, bounce and the bowlers will definitely enjoy bowling here. However, once you get used to the pace and bounce of the pitch, there are plenty of run scoring opportunities as well. 

Weather Report

The weather looked good for the match day. There will be a slight cloud cover but there is no rain predicted which is a good news

Brisbane Heat Team News & Playing 11

BRH Team News

Chris Lyn has been named in the 19 man squad to prepare for their clash against Sydney Thunder. However, the call to include Chris Lynn in the playing XI will be taken just before the match. Chriss Lynn made a strong recovery after suffering from a low grade hamstring injury at the start of the BBL 2020-21 

BRH Key Players

  • Max Bryant - Max Bryant has got plenty of starts in the tournament but hasn’t converted them into big starts. In the last two games he’s looked very good and can be backed to come good in the next game.
  • Lewis Gregory - Lewis Gregory had a decent all round game against Sydney Sixers. He’s played some crucial knocks for the Heats and has bowled well too. He’ll be player to watch out for in the next game.
  • Mark Steketee - Mark Steketee has emerged as the leader of Brisbane Heat team after some decent performance in the last few games. He picked up 4 wickets in the previous match against Sydney Sixers and can be backed to come good against Sydney Thunders as well

SYT Team News

Sydney Thunders have named an unchanged squad for their match against Brisbane Heat. Adam Milne was sidelined in the last match after an ankle injury. He’s being monitored and if he’s fit, he’ll make a comeback into the team

SYT Key Players

  • Alex Hales - Alex Hales is now beginning to get into a zone of his own. He backed his ruthless 71 against Melbourne Stars with a fiery 45 against Melbourne Renegades.The kind of form he’s in, he’ll be a big threat for Brisbane Heat
  • Usman Khawaja- Usman Khawaja too have been scintillating form in the last few games. Though he hasn’t got any massive scores in BBL 2020-21, he’s looked very comfortable and we feel that a big inning is just round the corner
  • Tanvir Sangha - The spinner has been a real find for the Thunders. Most of the batsmen have struggled against him and we expect to create a lot trouble for the Brisbane Heat batsmen

SYT Team Form 

Sydney Thunders are flying high after comprehensively winning their last 5 games.

BRH vs SYT Dream11 Prediction

    Alex Hales at 10, Usman Khawaja at 9.5, Cullum Ferguson at 9.0, Max Bryant at 8.5 form a strong batting order.

Cullum Ferguson is also a batsmen that’s batted well in the tournament while Max Bryant is the best batsmen from Brisbane Heat

  • All rounder

    Daniel Sams at and Lewis Gregory at 9.0 are our all rounders - Lewis Gregory played a important role in Brisbane Heat’s victory over Sydney Sixers and scored a vital 31 off 16 in addition to a solid bowling performance. Daniel Sams will also adda lot of value in our team with his all round skills

  • Bowlers

    Mujeeb Ur Rahmn at 9.0, Mark Steketee at 8.5, Tanveer Sangha at 8.5 and Nathan McAndrew at 8.0 will complete a team.
