Brisbane Heat (HEA) will lock horns with Melbourne Renegades (REN) in the 11th match of Big Bash League 2021-22 at the Carrara Oval in Queensland on Monday, December 13.
The Jimmy Pierson-led Heat have had a disappointing start to their BBL 2021-22 campaign, losing to Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers in the first two matches. HEA are currently languishing at the bottom of the BBL standings.
On the other hand, Melbourne Renegades defeated Adelaide Strikers in their season opener before losing to the same opposition in the reverse fixture on Thursday. With three points from two matches, REN are currently placed sixth in the BBL 2021-22 standings.
HEA vs REN Dream11 prediction
Melbourne Renegades have a superior head-to-head record against Brisbane Heat in Big Bash League, winning 10 of the 15 matches played between these two sides. However, Heat won both their matches against the Renegades in the last edition of the BBL. Going by recent form, REN will have a slight edge over HEA going into Monday’s clash.
HEA vs REN Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
Sam Heazlett has been the standout batter for Brisbane Heat in the first two matches of the ongoing BBL. The middle-order batter has scored 76 runs in two matches at a strike rate of 140.74 and has already accumulated 109 fantasy points. Heazlett is expected to add more fantasy points to his tally against Melbourne Renegades.
Top tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, Melbourne Renegades captain Kane Richardson has been the wrecker-in-chief for his side in BBL 2021-22. The 30-year-old pacer has picked five wickets in two matches at an economy of seven. Given his form, Richardson is likely to trouble the Brisbane Heat batting line-up on Monday.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, one must pick Melbourne Renegades’ Mohammad Nabi in the fantasy team. The experienced all-rounder has accrued 73 fantasy points in the ongoing BBL so far. At 9.5 credits, the Afghanistan international could be a valuable addition to any fantasy cricket team.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Sam Harper of the Melbourne Renegades will be the overwhelming choice over Brisbane Heat’s Jimmy Pierson. Apart from fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Harper has also scored 66 runs in two matches while opening the batting for Renegades. He is likely to add more fantasy points against Heat at the Carrara Oval.
HEA vs REN probable playing XI
HEA playing XI (probable): Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, Ben Ducket, Sam Heazlett, Jimmy Pierson (captain/wicket-keeper), Tom Cooper, James Bazley, Xavier Bartlett, Cameron Gannon, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Liam Guthrie
