When and where:
Brisbane Heat will take on Sydney Thunder in the regular season game of the Big Bash League T20, on (January 17) at The Gabba, Queensland, Australia.
The Heat are one of the only two sides left in the competition who have played only seven games till now. They do have an excellent batting lineup but somehow, the bowlers are not able to help out the side in maintaining the balance. Till now they have won 3 games and are in the sixth spot in the league table. However, with explosive batsmen such as Chris Lynn and Brendon McCollum in the lineup, setting a big target in the first innings is the ideal situation for the team.
Meanwhile, Sydney Thunder are the second-placed side in the league with some really good performances. Unlike their opponents, the Thunder do have a decent combination of batting and bowling. They will be looking to do more of the same, and keep their winning streak intact. Captain Shane Watson is an experienced player, and he will be making sure that none of his teammates slags off in the crucial moments of the match.
The match will begin at 1:45 PM IST.
