SYT vs BRH Betting Tips

  • David Warner has scored eight T20 centuries over his career and the left-hander is our pick for Sydney Thunder’s highest run scorer in this clash. Daniel Sams has picked up 17 wickets across BBL12 and the left-arm quick is worth backing as Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker against Brisbane Heat.
  • Matt Renshaw won recent matches against Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes for Brisbane Heat with his batting. He is our tip for their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Michael Neser has 22 wickets with a strike-rate of 12.2 in the tournament. He is a strong choice for Brisbane Heat’s top wicket taker in the Eliminator.
  • After a very consistent competition, we recommend backing Michael Neser to take over 1.5 wickets in this match.

THU vs HEA T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Eliminator BBL 2023

Sydney Thunder host Brisbane Heat in the Eliminator on Friday evening, the first play-off game of the 2022-23 Big Bash League. Thunder finished the group stage in fourth place with 14 points. Heat ended with 13 points, one place behind. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at the Sydney Showground Stadium at 19:15 local time.

Sydney Thunder have been very inconsistent in the tournament but come into the play-offs with two wins from their last three. If they play to their potential then they will be very hard to defeat.

Brisbane Heat have played excellent cricket over the last two weeks to get themselves into the play-offs and they will certainly not fear Sydney Thunder in this match.

Sydney Thunder Team News & Playing 11

THU Team News

A narrow three wicket win over bottom of the table Melbourne Stars saw Sydney Thunder through to the play-off stage but it was not a nervous batting performance with Daniel Sams top scoring with 28. There are no new injuries in the camp and we expect to see the same XI.

THU Key Players

  • David Warner- the Australian international has failed to make a significant score since coming into the team in mid-January. However, he will always be a batter who puts fear into bowlers.
  • Oliver Davies- the 22 year old has had an excellent BBL campaign but has fallen for single figure scores in each of his last three innings. Now would be a great time to hit some form again.
  • Daniel Sams- the left-arm quick bowler has a good record against Brisbane Heat in BBL 2023 with two wickets in both games during the group stage. He top scored in the final group game on Wednesday.

THU Team Form

Sydney Thunder lost three in a row before ending the group stage with two wins from three.

Brisbane Heat Team News & Playing 11

HEA Team News

Although their winning run came to an end, there was no disgrace to Brisbane Heat’s performance in Tasmania on Wednesday where they lost by only two runs. They are in strong form and have been able to select a consistent XI over recent weeks.

HEA Key Players

  • Matt Renshaw- the recently recalled Test batter, delivered two successive match-winning innings for Heat. He has struggled in the last two matches but has been their most reliable top order player. 
  • Jimmy Peirson- the keeper-batter has been a very consistent source of runs for Brisbane Heat throughout this campaign. He has scored only one half-century but contributed 323 runs in total.
  • Michael Neser- the pace bowling all-rounder took his third four-wicket haul of the tournament against Hobart Hurricanes. Only Sean Abbott and Andew Tye have taken more wickets than him in BBL12.

HEA Team Form

Brisbane Heat won four games in a row before their narrow defeat to Hobart Hurricanes on Wednesday.

Who will win Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat T20 Match?

Neither team has shown much consistency with the bat throughout this tournament and, Michael Neser aside, the bowling has also not been too strong. Sydney Thunder’s bowling attack delivered on Wednesday and they may well do so again in this match.

SYT vs BRH Top Team Batsmen

We recommend David Warner, Oliver Davies and Matthew Gilkes as our batting picks for Sydney Thunder. Gilkes hit the second highest score for Thunder on Wednesday and made 93 runs in two innings against Heat earlier in the competition. Davies has hit 333 runs across the tournament.

Matt Renshaw, Marnus Labuschagne and Jimmy Peirson are our recommendations with the bat for Brisbane Heat. Peirson ended the group stage with scores of 57 not out and 39. Labuschagne’s top score in this campaign is 46 but opposition bowlers will always worry that a big innings could come.

SYT vs BRH Top Team Bowlers

Daniel Sams, Usman Qadir and Nathan McAndrew are our bowling choices for Sydney Thunder. Qadir was the star with the ball against Melbourne Stars, taking 3-24 from his four overs. McAndrew has had a good individual season picking up 13 wickets.

We are backing Michael Neser, James Bazley and Spencer Johnson are our bowling tips for Brisbane Heat. Johnson has taken wickets in four of the last five BBL games. Bazley is a consistent performer and has picked up 15 wickets across this tournament.

🏆 Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat Prediction

Play-offs in any sport are great to watch, even for the neutral, and the BBL is no different. Neither team has performed to the best of their ability throughout this competition and whoever is knocked out will have had a disappointing tournament. We expect plenty of movement for the quick bowlers with high humidity and thunderstorms in the area. Overall, we think that Sydney Thunder have the better fast bowling unit and are backing them to win.
