Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat Betting Tips 1/01/2022

The 29th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Hobart Hurricanes host Brisbane Heat on Jan 1 (Saturday) at Bellerive Oval, Hobart. The match is to begin at 10:30 am IST.

Teams Status

Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes have transformed into one of the most scariest units in this Big Bash League right in front of our eyes, and they have one man to thank for it: Ben McDermott.

The 27-year-old wicketkeeper-batsmen is in the form of his life and has scored 127, 110*, and 67 in his last three innings. That’s probably the richest vein of form over a three-match T20 sequence in any top-level franchised league in the world.

McDermott’s superb displays mean that the Hurricanes have now won three on the bounce. His innings of 127 in the last game were against Melbourne Renegades. Batting first, Hobart were 52-3 in the ninth over and operating at pedestrian pace when McDermott came alive and went berserk in the final 10 overs. An incredible 9-ball 30 from Tim David also came in handy as Hobart posted 206-5, which the Renegades did not even come close to, eventually folding for a mere 121.

Another positive for Hobart was their Nepalese spinner Sandeep Lamichhane getting three wickets after three previous wicketless outings.

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat are coming off a defeat to Sydney Sixers in an extremely low-scoring match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Batting first, the Heat folded for just as their top order was wrecked by Sydney duo of Ben Dwarshuis and Sean Abbott. Those two combined for six wickets and then during the run chase, when an extraordinary batting collapse had left the Sixers gasping for breath at 8 for 47, the pair again came to their side’s rescue, forging a 49-run partnership for the ninth wicket.

From Brisbane’s perspective, the blame for the defeat will have to be shouldered by the batsmen, even if the wicket was bowler-friendly.

The SCG deck was certainly an anomaly and others will be much easier to bat on. That said, Brisbane cannot find comfort in that fact as their batting has blown hot and cold all season and has seen the side win just two of their seven matches.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Hobart to win @ 1.608

Hobart are a force on the rise. They have two devastating openers, one of whom is in stupendous form. When that’s the case it’s a no-brainer to not go against them. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Matthew Wade to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.87

Matthew Wade has not gotten many runs in the past two games and has certainly been overshadowed by his more illustrious partner but the last time he played against Brisbane, he hit a 61 in what was a one-man show. This game was played in Jan 2020, and even though Hobart lost, it wasn’t due to anything Wade had done. We expect him to get back among runs after a couple of duds. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


The last time these two faced each other, Brisbane lost by one run despite Mujeeb ur Rehman’s outstanding five for 15 and James Bazley’s unbeaten 49. Will they be able to avenge that painful loss? On the current form, it does not look likely.
