Brisbane Heat (Match Odds – 2.30):


The Brisbane Heat has yet to gain traction this season, having lost their first two league games. To get back on track, they will face the Adelaide Strikers at Brisbane Cricket Ground on December 23, 2022.

They lost both of their two matches against the Melbourne Renegades. After deciding to bat first, the Heat’s opening pair retired without putting up a good score. The only key batters who batted in the middle order were Sam Billings (25 runs off 19 balls) and captain Jimmy Peirson (45 runs off 30 balls).

They managed to score 137 runs with the help of these two knocks. Michael Neser bowled a fiery spell in defending a 138-run target. He took four wickets, including a hat trick, in four overs. However, other bowlers failed to put pressure on the opposing batter, and Renegades’ lower order easily chased down the target.

The team’s overall balance appears to be balanced, but the batting unit has yet to shine this season. If the team is to win their first game of the season on Friday, they must fully utilise their batting strength against the Adelaide Strikers.

Full Squad:

Xavier Bartlett, James Bazley, Sam Billings, Max Bryant, Sam Hain, Sam Heazlett, Usman Khawaja, Matthew Kuhnemann, Marnus Labuschagne, Colin Munro, Michael Neser, Jimmy Peirson, Matthew Renshaw, Mark Steketee, Mitchell Swepson, Ross Whiteley, Jack Wildermuth, Spencer Johnson, Will Prestwidge, Josh Brown

Adelaide Strikers (Match Odds – 1.62):


Adelaide Strikers are looking dangerous this season, having defeated the Sixers in the first game and the Thunders in the last two games in a row. They will try to keep their momentum going when they face the Brisbane Heat in the season’s 13th match.

In the previous match, the Strikers defeated the Thunders by bowling them out for just 15 runs and winning by a 124-run margin. The Strikers’ bowling unit limited opponents to 150 runs while bowling first against the Sydney Thunder. Henry Thornton and Colin de Grandhomme each took two wickets.

Matthew Short, the BBL12’s leading run scorer, shone once more, scoring 65 runs from 44 balls while chasing 151 runs. This season, he has scored 158 runs in the last three innings. Chris Lynn and Adam Hose each scored 28 runs, and Adelaide Strikers easily chased down the target despite losing six wickets.

This season, Matthew Short and Henry Thornton have been consistent for the Adelaide Strikers. Both of these players have been critical to their dominant performance thus far this season. They have good depth in both bowling and batting and must execute their plans well when they face the Brisbane Heat.

Full Squad:

Wes Agar, Cameron Boyce, Alex Carey, Harry Conway, Colin de Grandhomme, Ryan Gibson, Travis Head, Adam Hose, Henry Hunt, Thomas Kelly, Rashid Khan, Chris Lynn, Harry Nielsen, Matt Short, Jake Weatherald, Henry Thorton, Peter Siddle, Ben Manenti, Jordan Buckingham
