The 25th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees defending champions Sydney Sixers take on Brisbane Heat on Dec 29 (Wednesday) at Sydney Cricket Ground. The match is to begin at 12:35 pm IST.

Teams Status

Sydney Sixers

The Sixers are on a three-match winning streak – a run during which they have beaten Melbourne Stars, Adelaide Strikers and city rivals Sydney Thunder on Boxing Day.

In their last game, a rain-hit affair, with them missing multiple regulars, their previously underfiring players stepped up. Daniel Hughes, who had flopped in the previous four innings, scored a 50, while Dan Christian, who was also struggling for runs, contributed a quickfire 41.

The Sixers’ new signing Shadab Khan was only listed as an x-factor substitute in the last game. He may get the nod this time, and if it happens, Lloyd Pope may have to make way.

Brisbane Heat

In their last game on Monday, a loss to Melbourne Stars, Brisbane Heat did not do too much wrong and could have had a favourable result, had the few things that they did do wrong had gone their way.

Bowling first, they had the Stars rocked and reeling early at 16-3 before Joe Clarke and Hilton Cartwright went berserk over a 13-over spell, plundering 151 runs off just 82 balls.

The Heat handled everyone else apart from those two, who dealt so much damage that the score swelled up to 207-9, and as we know, anything around 200 is always a massive task to track down.

In the run chase, Chris Lynn and Ben Duckett, both half-centurions on the night, also had their moments but for not as long as Clarke and Cartwright had for the Stars. They kept pace with the run rate for a little more than the halfway mark before wheels came off of the run chase.

The Heat have now lost four of their six games and with the Sixers up next, it does not get any easier for them.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Brisbane to win @ 2.384

The reason Brisbane lost their last match was the carnage of Clarke and Cartwright, whose favourite target was Liam Guthrie. The pacer was bled for BBL record 70 runs in his four overs. Take that out and the equation would have been a lot closer or even in the favour of Brisbane. The Sixers, on the other hand, are shorthanded and even though that hasn’t been reflected in their results of late, it easily could. Therefore, we back Brisbane here. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Sam Heazlett to score more than 17.5 runs @ 1.87

Brisbane Heat’s Sam Heazlett has been in tremendous form this BBL season. In his six innings, he has scored double-digit scores in all but one game. He is clearly on a roll and in kind of form where a 17.5-run spread should be pretty easy for him to cover. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Conclusion

Brisbane’s two most important men, Chris Lynn and Mujeeb ur Rehman have to be at their best for their side to upset Sydney. They have given improved performances of late but have still not fired on all cylinders. Here is hoping that do precisely that in this game.
