Brisbane Heat will be up against Hobart Hurricanes in match number 41 of the ongoing 11th edition of the Big Bash League (BBL). The Heat had to field a second-string side against Melbourne Renegades due to 12 players testing positive for COVID-19. They were led by Tom Cooper and they lost the match by five wickets. Against the Hurricanes also the Heat have to field the second-string side. The COVID-19 outbreak has come at the wrong time for Heat.

They were managing to peak at the right time but now have slipped a bit. On the other hand, Hurricanes are placed fourth points table. The side managed to start the tournament well by winning four games, but two back-to-back losses have pegged their momentum. Hurricanes still have five games left in the league stage and the team still has a chance to make it to the semis.

However, for that, the Hurricanes don’t have Matthew Wade their talismanic captain and best batter. In the absence of Wade, the rest of the players like Ben McDermott and D’Arcy Short need to step up.

Pitch Report

The match is going to be played at Gabba in Brisbane. The pitch out here is good for batting owing to its fast and bouncy nature. The bowlers will have to be spot on with their lengths on this lively surface.
