Brisbane Heat has suffered two back to back defeats so far in Big Bash League 2019-20. They would be eager to get back on the winning track in the upcoming match against Sydney Sixers. They boast a strong batting line-up that comprises of Tom Banton, Max Bryant and Chris Lynn in the top order.
But, the formidable trio is yet to perform as a team. If two out of three managed to click a good knock then the chances of Heat winning the match will be quite high. However, their bowling has done a decent job in the ongoing tournament and will look to replicate their form against Sixers as well.
Sydney Sixers are currently ranked fourth in the points table with two points. They will look to grab some important points and improve their ranking in the leaderboard. With the likes of Josh Philippe, James Vince and Daniel Hughes their chances are high to outclass the out of form Heat.
With no chances of rain, it is expected to be a perfect day for a cricket match. However, the temperature is expected to deviate between 20 and 24 Degree Celsius according to Accuweather.
The track at Sydney Cricket Ground will be favourable for the batsmen with spinner coming into the picture in the latter part of the game. However, batsmen will look to pile some big runs in the batting-friendly conditions. On the other hand, the team winning the toss will look to the field because teams have found it difficult to chase at this venue.
