Sydney Sixers start as favourites against Brisbane Heat - get BBL 2021-22 fantasy tips and predictions
A struggling Brisbane Heat (HEA) side take on a confident Sydney Sixers (SIX) team in match 34 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season at Metricon Stadium in Queensland on Tuesday, January 4. The match will start at 1:45 PM IST.
HEA vs SIX Dream11 prediction
Sydney Sixers are one of two teams that have lost a solitary game this season. Prior to their previous match against Melbourne Renegades which got abandoned due to rain, the team had won each of their last four games. As a result of their scorching form, the team sits second in the BBL points table with 23 points after eight games.
Brisbane Heat, on the other hand, are fifth in the standings and despite winning their recent match, they have more or less struggled for wins. The team has, in fact, lost three of their last five matches. Given the recent run of form, it is safe to say that SIX will start the match as outright favourites on Tuesday.
HEA vs SIX Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
The Sixers’ Moises Henriques’ form may have dwindled in the last few outings, but the 34-year-old has proved out to be quite a coup for fantasy managers. In eight matches, the hard-hitting batsman has accrued 381 fantasy points which is the best return among all batsmen involved in this match.
Top tip: Best bowler
HEA’s Xavier Bartlett showed his class against Hobart Hurricanes in his previous outing after taking four wickets to take his tally to 11 scalps in eight matches. As things stand heading into the contest, Bartlett is currently the second most-picked bowler after accumulating a tally of 471 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Although Sydney Sixers’ Sean Abbott has failed to score as many runs as he would have hoped, he has more or less compensated by taking 12 wickets in a mere five innings. As a result, he has churned out an impressive tally of 484 fantasy points which is the second-highest return among all the players involved in this fixture.
Meanwhile, SIX’s Josh Philippe remains an outright choice for a wicket-keeper. The 24-year-old gloveman has scored 295 runs in seven innings at an average of almost 50. And with three half-centuries already to his name, it comes as no surprise that 88.73 per cent of fantasy users have decided to add him to their teams.
HEA vs SIX probable playing XI
HEA playing XI (probable): Jimmy Pierson (captain/wicket-keeper), Chris Lynn, Tom Cooper, Ben Duckett, Sam Heazlett, Max Bryant, Xavier Bartlett, Jack Wildermuth, James Bazley, Mark Steketee, Mujeeb ur Rahman
SIX playing XI (probable): Josh Philippe (wicket-keeper), James Vince, Moises Henriques (captain), Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Sean Abbott, Hayden Kerr, Chris Jordan, Ben Dwarshuis, Lloyd Pope
