BBL 2021-22 has seen some game changes in the scheduling owing to the conflict with COVID-19 attacks and in a bid to avoid further spread they have moved the matches to Victoria hub recently. Brisbane Heat are one of severely affected teams as they lost many players to COVID infection and were forced to field a lot of new faces in the team. Adelaide Strikers too are not having a good season as they currently struggling at the bottom of the points table. Both teams need to win all their remaining matches and hope the other results go their way in order to qualify for the play-offs.
Brisbane Heat failed to defend 145 & 128 in the last 2 matches and succumbed in losses against the respective opponents. Lachlan Pfeffer (69 runs) and Jake Lehmann (65 runs) lead their batting unit single handedly in the last 2 matches with other batters failing to make an impact. They have a completely new look batting line-up with the likes of Tom Cooper, Heazlett, Jack Clayton, and Jack Wood in their playing XI.
Their bowling unit failed to stop the opposition from chasing the target. Opening bowlers David Grant and Paddy Dooley had combined economical bowling figures of 8-0-53-0. Will Prestwidge claimed 2 wickets while he was on the expensive side alongside Mujeeb ur Rehman. Steven McGiffin and Jack wood are expected to chip in as the fifth bowler for the team.

Strikers failed to restrict the opposition in the chase as they lost by 5 wickets.

Brisbane is expected to have a sunny and breezy weather on the match day with bright sunshine. No weather or rain interruptions are expected.
Gabba will have a good pace and bounce for the pace bowlers and the pitch will be hard to negotiate with the new cherry in hand. But, once batters settle down they can hit through the line trusting the bounce on offer. We expect the average scores to be around 160-180 runs on this pitch.
The pitch played alright for the most part in the last game with good pace and carry. Both teams will look to put the opposition to bat on this track and plan their chase according to the target on board.
Brisbane Heat have a new team with a different combination from the first choice team and they lack quality and experience in the batting line-up for sure. Adelaide Strikers batting has ben inconsistent but has experienced players like Weatherald, Short, and Wells in their playing XI. Both teams have a lot of new faces in bowling department but Adelaide Strikers fare better with the likes of Rashid Khan, Fawad Ahmed, and Peter Siddle to lead their resources on the field. We expect Adelaide Strikers to win this match owing to their better experienced players.
Adelaide Strikers will win this match.
