- Sydney Thunder are the only team remaining still yet to take to the field in this season’s BBL but the wait is finally over for their supporters as their side look to finish in a playoff spot for the fifth consecutive season.
- Opening batter Alex Hales serves as the Thunder’s main overseas star once again and his runs will be crucial to their success, but the bowling has been boosted by the addition of Zaman Khan, who has reached an NOC from the Pakistan Cricket Board to take part in the tournament.
- Brisbane Heat were big winners on the opening night of the BBL against Melbourne Stars but were not given the opportunity to back that result up after their game away at Adelaide Strikers was abandoned without a ball bowled due to rain.
- Despite the washout, three points from a possible four represents a more than adequate start for the Heat, whose net-run-rate is already by far and away the best of any other BBL side.
Brisbane Heat will be chomping at the bit to get back out there in a bid to back up that thumping victory last Thursday and their intensity that comes with having already competed as a team could give them an edge over Sydney Thunder, who have had to wait a significant period of time just to play. Particularly from a bowling perspective, it won’t be easy for the Thunder to hit the ground running and in this format of the game, that can prove costly. This makes backing Brisbane to maintain their unbeaten start to the competition a smart play.
