Match 46 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season will see Brisbane Heat (HEA) hosting  Adelaide Strikers (STR) at The Gabba on Wednesday, January 12. The match will start at 1:45 PM IST.

HEA vs STR Dream11 prediction

For Adelaide Strikers, there is not much to play for as the team is virtually out of playoff contention. In 10 games so far, they have registered a mere two victories while losing on eight occasions.

HEA, on the other hand, still has a chance of sneaking into the playoff spots. After three wins in 10 games, the team sit fifth in the standings with 15 points, six points below fourth-placed Hobart Hurricanes. If Heat are to have any chance of making it to the top four, they need to win all of their remaining games while hoping the Hurricanes lose theirs.

HEA vs STR Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22

Top tip: Best batter

With 280 runs in 10 innings, STR’s Jonathan Wells is his team’s highest run-scorer this season. The 33-year-old batter has accrued 449 fantasy points so far in the campaign, which is the best return among all batters involved in this fixture.

Top tip: Best bowler

STR’s Peter Siddle has managed to outshine several big names this season. The 37-year-old bowler has picked 18 wickets in 10 innings and is bowling at an excellent average of 18.77. With 585 fantasy points, Siddle is the most picked player for this match.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

STR’s Matthew Short may have struggled in his last few outings, but the fact remains that he is your best bet for an all-rounder. The 26-year-old has scored 265 runs this season, resulting in a tally of 520 fantasy points and could have a positive impact on your fantasy team.

Meanwhile, there wouldn’t have been any competition for the wicket-keeping spot if HEA’s Ben Duckett was certain to participate in the contest. However since his inclusion is not a given, STR’s Harry Nielsen, who has made 130 runs this season, becomes the obvious wicket-keeping choice.

HEA vs STR probable playing XI

HEA playing XI (probable): Jake Lehmann, Jack Clayton, Lachlan Pfeffer (wicket-keeper), Sam Heazlett, Tom Cooper (captain), Jack Wood, Steve McGiffin, Will Prestwidge, Patrick Dooley, David Grant, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

STR playing XI (probable): Matthew Short, Henry Hunt, Matt Renshaw, Jonathan Wells, Jake Weatherald, Harry Nielsen (wicket-keeper), Thomas Kelly, Rashid Khan, Harry Conway, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle (captain), Liam Scott, Daniel Worrall
