SYT vs BRH Knockout Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21
Having recaptured some winning form in perfect time to charge into the play-offs and then see off Adelaide Strikers in the Eliminator, Brisbane Heat now take on Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League 2020-21 Knockout. The match, at the Manuka Oval in Canberra, takes place on January 31 and the live action begins at 19:15 local time.
Brisbane Heat won their final two group games, with Chris Lynn hitting half-centuries in each. They then restricted Adelaide Strikers to 130/7 in the Eliminator last time out, with in-form Marnus Labuschagne – whose return has coincided with their climb up the table – taking 3-13. In reply, Jimmy Peirson anchored the innings with 47* from 44 balls as the Heat won by six wickets with seven balls to spare.
Sydney Thunder finished third, meanwhile, after signing off with a nine-wicket win against the Strikers. It was a second win in three games, but they did three in a row before that and five of their last eight in total to counter a fine start. Alex Hales’ batting will be key, and he hit 63* from 39 balls last time out, but it is Brisbane with the greater momentum now.
