Having started their season with a win, the Heat will be looking to press home their advantage against the Strikers. Adelaide hasn’t been a happy hunting ground last year for the Strikers and the absence of Rashid Khan puts further stress on the side. I am backing the Brisbane Heat to win this match.

Head to Head


Adelaide Strikers have played the Brisbane Heat 18 times so far with nine wins each. It is the Heat who have the upper hand in recent times though, winning four of the last five.

That included winning both matches last season. The Heat won at this venue by 17 runs and at the Gabba by six runs.

Adelaide Strikers Form


Adelaide Strikers finished 7th last season in the Big Bash League with five wins and nine losses. They finished with five straight losses and have a mandate to improve as they start this season with renewed hopes.

The BBL|07 Champions will not be without star player Rashid Khan, who is missing the tournament to undergo a surgery. Harry Conway, Ryan Gibson, and Colin de Grandhomme are let go in the summer.

All eyes will be on new signing D’Arcy Short and last year success story Matthew Short.

Adelaide Strikers Team News


Except for the Test players Alex Carey and Travis Head, the Strikers have a full squad to choose from.

Brisbane Heat Form


Defending runners-up Brisbane Heat started their campaign in an emphatic fashion, defeating Melbourne Stars by 103 runs at the Gabba in their opening match.

That was the tournament opener too, as Colin Munro’s 99 not-out led them to a sparkling 214 for 3. The next best was just 30, so the domination of Munro can be understood.

The bowlers didn’t let the Stars sparkle in the chase, suffocating them to 111 all out in just 15.1 overs. There were wickets for all six bowlers used, with Mitchell Swepson’s 3 for 23 the standout.

Brisbane Heat Team News


Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne will be unavailable owing to their Test duties with Munro captaining the side. Jack Wildermuth comes into the 13-man squad and could fancy a game.

Verdict

Brisbane Heat barely broke sweat in their opening match, which should help them in managing player workloads. With three games in real quick time, they could be tempted to rotate the squad, but even that shouldn’t take the favourites tag away from them against Adelaide Strikers. The Strikers have lost both their games against the Heat last season and that could continue here. I am backing the Heat to keep winning and make it two wins out of two at the start of this Big Bash League campaign.
