The previous game was called off due to unfavorable pitch conditions, but Nic Maddinson’s team still managed to share the spoils with the Perth Scorchers. They will try to win the third game to get their first win of the season after losing the first two. Given the strength of their opponents, Maddinson will be looking for a strong performance from his players.
To win this game, the team will need to get off to a strong start from Nic Maddinson and Quinton de Kock. A strong bowling attack will be faced by Joe Clarke, Jake Fraser-McGurk, and Aaron Finch, so they need to perform well in the middle order. Will Sutherland and Jonathan Wells give this batting lineup more power.
Kane Richardson and Tom Rogers will need to take early wickets for the side because Brisbane Heat have a strong top order. Mujeeb Ur Rahman needs to make the most of the circumstances and bowl well against Tom Rogers. For the side to win, Will Sutherland’s supporting performance must be strong.
