PRS vs BRH Challenger Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat meet in Canberra with the prize of a place in the 2020-21 Big Bash League Final against Sydney Sixers up for grabs. The two teams meet at the Manuka Oval on February 4 and the live action starts at 19:40 local time.

Including their win against Perth in the final group game, Brisbane Heat have won their last four consecutive matches to keep their Big Bash hopes alive. They had previously looked down and out but have now already beaten Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder in these play-offs to jeep their hopes alive.

Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, lost that game to the Heat and then suffered a heavy defeat to Sydney Sixers last time out too. Those two results have seen them lose the momentum they were previously carrying while paceman Andrew Tye’s controversial wide – with James Vince two away from a century – attracted criticism during their heavy loss last time out as well.

The Manuka Oval definitely favours batting over bowling, with a par score of more than 160 necessary.

Perth Scorchers Team News & Playing 11

PRS Team News

Despite their heavy defeat last time out, Perth Scorchers could be unchanged for this game with a strong top-order looking to get back to their best batting form.

PRS Key Players

  • Jason Roy: The England opener scored 41 when these teams last met, after a half-century in the previous game, and will be key at the top of the order.
  • Josh Inglis: Scored another half-century last time out, albeit in a losing cause, when he hit 69* from 41 balls.
  • Jhye Richardson: Previously in wicket-taking form, he has was one of the least expensive bowlers last time out too. 

PRS Team Form

Perth Scorchers have lost their last two Big Bash League matches, to first miss out on top spot after posting 175/6 in reply to Brisbane’s 181/7, before a heavy defeat to Sydney Sixers in the first Qualifier play-off. Josh Inglis hit 69* in a total of 167/6, but their bowlers could not cope with the Sixers’ onslaught – losing by nine wickets with a full three overs to bowl.

Perth Scorchers Predicted Playing 11

Brisbane Heat Team News & Playing 11

BRH Team News

Morne Morkel replaced Xavier Bartlett as the X-Factor Sub again last time out in BBL 2020-21 and he could start this match instead, with Bartlett as the extra man.

BRH Key Players

  • Marnus Labuschagne: Added another wicket and a useful – albeit slower-paced – 32 with the bat last time out to continue his excellent all-round form.
  • Mitchell Swepson: Took 2-28 last time out to move to two wickets in each of his last four Brisbane Heat matches now.
  • Chris Lynn: Has hammered more than 400 runs this season, and will want to go big after posting just ten in the previous game.

BRH Team Form

Brisbane Heat have profited from the return of Marnus Labuschagne and Mitchell Swepson with both key to their recent upturn in form. The Heat have now won four in a row, including a six-wicket win chasing 131 to beat Adelaide Strikers in their first play-off game, and a seven-wicket win against Sydney Thunder last time out. Sam Heazlett hammered 74* from 49 balls in their most recent game.

PRS vs BRH Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Inglis and Jimmy Peirson both scored well last time out and given neither will break the bank – particularly the latter – it could be worth selecting both. They are nine and 8.5 credits respectively.

  • Batsmen

    Chris Lynn fell short last time out bit his form has been central to Brisbane’s return to winning ways and he is key at the top of the order. The same goes for Jason Roy for Perth Scorchers who, at 0.5 credits cheaper than Colin Munro, may be the better option. Brisbane’s match-winner last time out, Sam Heazlett, is 8.5 credits.

  • All rounder

    Marnus Labuschagne is 9.5 credits and has taken wickets and scored runs since coming into the team. His form has been excellent. Liam Livingstone is better known for his batting but he too took a wicket last time out and has 591 points to his name so far.

  • Bowlers

    Jhye Richardson and Mark Steketee have been the top wicket-takers in this tournament this year and, even at 19 credits between them, they are must-pick bowlers. That still leaves enough for two of Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Swepson and the latter’s wicket-taking form makes him a top pick. Tye has a point to prove after last time but Behrendorff is generally more consistent.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Marnus Labuschagne is without doubt the key choice for captain thanks to his excellent form with bat and ball. Mitchell Swepson is worth considering for vice-captain, meanwhile, having taken two wickets in each of the last four matches now.

PRS vs BRH Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Chris Lynn, Jason Roy, Sam Heazlett

  • All Rounder:Marnus Labuschagne (c), Liam Livingstone

  • Wicket Keeper:Josh Inglis, Jimmy Peirson

  • Bowler:Mark Steketee, Jhye Richardson, Mitchell Swepson (vc), Jason Behrendorff
