Brisbane Heat host Perth Scorchers at the iconic Gabba in a battle of the BBL 2019 laggards on Friday. Both the side have failed to get the consistent performances going and find themselves reeling at the bottom of the points tally.
Brisbane Heat have lost three games on the bounce and would want to get back on the winning ways in front of their fans. Their Big Bash campaign is over but they would be looking to finish with a couple of more wins in the bag. After 11 rounds, Brisbane Heat have managed three wins and faced defeat on seven occasions.
Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, have collected a loss more than their opponent for the fixture. Like Brisbane Heat, they come into the fixture with three losses on the bounce and would want to round off their campaign with a couple of favourable results.
