Brisbane Heat look to avoid successive defeats against Sydney Sixers - get BBL 2021-22 predictions
Brisbane Heat (HEA) will lock horns with Sydney Sixers (SIX) in match 36 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season at the Metricon Stadium in Queensland on Wednesday, January 5. The match will start at 3:45 PM IST.
HEA vs SIX Dream11 prediction
Brisbane Heat are desperate for a win. They find themselves fifth in the BBL points table, three points behind Hobart Hurricane who occupy the final playoff spot.
Sydney Sixers, on the other hand, are on a roll this season. The team has registered six wins in nine matches and sit second in the standings. Prior to their abandoned match against Melbourne Renegades, the SIxers had registered four successive wins.
Given the form they are in, and having already beaten HEA earlier this term, it is safe to say that SIX will start as favourites on Wednesday.
HEA vs SIX Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
SIX captain Moises Henriques may have struggled in his last few outings, but he still remains one of your best bets for the batting position in your fantasy team. The 34-year-old has accrued 391 fantasy points so far and is likely to produce a long overdue big knock sooner rather than later.
Top tip: Best bowler
SIX’s Hayden Kerr has been in excellent form this season, bagging 15 wickets at an economy of 6.95. The 25-year-old registered his career-best figures in T20 cricket in his last outing - 4/32 versus Perth Scorchers - and is expected to restrict HEA from scoring too many runs in the middle overs. Hayden Kerr heads into the fixture with 497 fantasy points already this season.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Sean Abbott is an excellent all-round option. The Australian all-rounder put on a match-winning display in the reverse SIX vs HEA meeting this season, scoring an unbeaten 37 and grabbing four wickets for 31 runs. Owned by 93.05 per cent fantasy players, Abbott will hope to build on his tally of 536 points on Wednesday and lead his team to victory.
Josh Philippe qualifies as a smart wicket-keeping pick for this contest. The Australian wicket-keeper is the Sixers’ leading run-getter in BBL 2021-22 with 295 runs in eight games. His form this season will be a concern for the opposition bowlers as Philippe looks poised to put on another commanding display with the bat besides also contributing from behind the stumps.
HEA vs SIX probable playing XI
HEA playing XI (probable): Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, Ben Duckett, Sam Heazlett, Jimmy Peirson (captain and wicket-keeper), James Bazley, Mark Steketee, Xavier Bartlett, Liam Guthrie, Matt Kuhnemann, Mujeeb ur Rehman
SIX playing XI (probable): Josh Philippe (wicket-keeper), James Vince, Moises Henriques (captain), Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Hayden Kerr, Shadab Khan, Steve O'Keefe
