Brisbane Heat have had a pretty disappointing start to this season. Melbourne Stars reduced them to 125 all out and won comfortably. Meanwhile, in their second game, Brisbane Heat got better with the bat and got 178 but still failed to defend that. The bowling seems to lack some teeth while the batting hasn’t been really inspiring. Hence, they need to pull up their socks before it’s too late.
On the other hand, Hobart Hurricanes have looked in top form in the four games that they have played so far in this tournament. They have won three out of those and have also gained a couple of Bash Boost points which puts them at the top of the points table. Their only loss came against Adelaide Strikers in a game where they could score just 146 batting first. In the first two games, they batted first and got big scores. Meanwhile, in their last game, Hobart Hurricanes hunted down 159 with ease. Thus, they have the momentum on their side and they will be looking to make the most of it.
Moreover, Hobart Hurricanes are well ahead in the head to head race and they lead 10-6. Hence, Hobart Hurricanes will be the favourites and have better odds of winning this game. They are placed at the winning odds of 1.728. Meanwhile, Brisbane Heat have the winning odds of 2.132.
Brisbane Heat just haven’t inspired any sort of confidence throughout this season. They lack the big stars and seem to be pretty inconsistent.
