Teams Status

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat have fielded their reconstructed squad in two matches now and have lost both in similar fashion, although that was pretty much expected. They batted first in both the games, saw most of their batters struggle and perish except for individual performances.

Jake Lehmann top scored with 65 in the loss to the Gades whereas Lachlan Pfeffer contributed 69 in the defeat against Hobart Hurricanes.

There are no updates yet on how far along are Brisbane’s infected players in their recovery. Most of them must be nearing the end of their weeklong isolation and one can think that this could be the last game Brisbane are forced to use their new recruits. Surely, in a day or two, some of the regulars would take their road to return.

Adelaide Strikers

While virus-hit Brisbane Heat are arguably the worst looking team in the BBL right now due to their plethora of new signings, Adelaide Strikers are the team with the worst results.

They have one win in their last eight games, with the only one they did not lose being their upset win over Hobart Hurricanes a game ago.

In their last game, they managed to a 140-run target for the Melbourne Stars, thanks in large parts to Jonathan Wells for his 68 because most other Adelaide batters barely contributed at all.

In defence of that total, their bowlers found breakthroughs at regular intervals but couldn’t get England’s Joe Clarke out early and so he made them pay with a 58-ball 83.

Adelaide batting, which has been misfiring the entire season, was again to blame. On the bowling front, apart from Rashid Khan and Peter Siddle, others were extremely expensive. This has been a disastrous season for Adelaide and they should already be looking ahead towards squad overhauls and wholesale changes. There is little to salvage here.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Adelaide to win @ 1.70

As we explained above, Adelaide are a mess and have been that way for quite some time now. But they face a side in Brisbane that is unrecognizable due to a mid-season squad reconstruction and have a ton of players who probably weren’t ready for this level. It’s a risky bet considering Adelaide’s own level but we’re going to take a small punt. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Total Runs Matthew Short Over 19.5 @ 1.87

Over the course of the season, Adelaide opener Matthew Short has consistently gotten into double figures. Twice he’s converted those starts into half centuries but often he has perished for scores that are not too small but not too significant either. The 19.5-run spread for him in this game is pretty doable, especially against a weak Brisbane bowling attack. We’d take a small punt on him. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Conclusion

This here is a clash between two of the league’s worst sides. As bad as they may be, their equally weak traits can produce an interesting game.
