Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder Betting Tips 19/12/2021

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 14th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Brisbane Heat take on Sydney Thunder at Brisbane Cricket Ground in Woolloongabba, Brisbane on Dec 19 (Sunday). The match is to begin at 2:05 pm IST.

Teams Status

Brisbane Heat

When Brisbane Heat were in action the last time, they snapped a run of two straight defeats and notched their maiden win of the season.

That sole win of theirs came against Melbourne Renegades, and allrounder James Bazley played a prominent role in it, breaking the back of Melbourne batting with three top-order wickets. He also chipped in with a useful 16 during the run chase.

Apart from Bazlay, Sam Heazlett impressed again with an unbeaten 44 off 29. The leftie batter has now scored decent runs in all three games this season and is easily his side’s most consistent performer.

The last match’s win got them to open their account but they still dwell towards the bottom of the table, with only the Renegades below them.

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder were impressive in their season opener, beating none other than Brisbane Heat in that game. However, since then, the Thunder have lost their way and lost back-to-back games to Melbourne Stars.

In their first defeat to the Stars, they fell agonizingly short by just four runs, whereas, in the next defeat, their target of 152 was easily chased down by the Stars.

Like Heazlett for Brisbane, one man who has stood out for the Thunder over the first three matches is middle-order batter, Alex Ross.

The right-handed batsman has two half-centuries in three outings and has yet to be dismissed in the tournament. He was the player of the match when the Thunder had chased Brisbane’s total of 140 in their first match of the tournament.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney Thunder to win @ 1.74

Pound for pound, we like Sydney’s batting more, with Alex Hales providing firepower up top before Sam Billings and Alex Ross coming up with the late push. Ben Cutting can also come in handy, if/when need be. Overall, we see the edge being with the Thunder, which is why they are our pick here. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Chris Lynn to score more than 22.5 runs @ 1.87

Both these teams have an explosive batter each opening the innings for them. This bet was a straight battle between Sydney’s Alex Hales and Brisbane Heat’s Chris Lynn. Neither has caught fire yet so far this season but Lynn has shown greater signs for that. Therefore, we side with the Aussie. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


We think a repeat of the previous match is on the cards, if not by that same intensity. The Thunder have our vote of confidence.
