Match Preview for Dream11 Fantasy:
We are slowly moving to the business end of the 2019-20 edition of the Big Bash League and Tuesday’s encounter between Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers promises to be a mouth-watering one as both sides’ aim to address their fledgeling campaign.
Brisbane Heat, who have four and lost as many fixtures in their first eight games, will be looking to bounce back after enduring a 34-run defeat at the hands of Perth Scorchers in their previous fixture. While Tom Banton will no longer be available, the Heat will be bolstered with the addition of Mr 360° AB de Villiers, who will be making his BBL debut on Tuesday and Afghan teenage sensation Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
They’ll face Adelaide Strikers, who come into this game after having successfully wrecked their three-match losing streak with a comprehensive 63-run win at the expense of defending champions Melbourne Renegades and will look to emulate the same when they lock horns with Brisbane Heat on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, it is expected to be a day of scattered thunderstorms in Brisbane on Tuesday. According to the weather report, it is expected to rain throughout the course of the day in Brisbane. While the temperature is set to be between 23 and 29 degrees Celsius, the humidity is set to hover around 67%. More importantly, the chances of rain are 60%.
In the two games played at the Gabba, the bowlers have ruled the roost to a considerable extent. With rain being forecasted for Tuesday, both fast bowlers, as well as spinners, might come into play.
