Brisbane Heat chased down a stiff target of 175 runs with their middle order duo of Joe Denly and Joe Burns scoring fifties. Earlier Chris Lynn and Max Bryant set the tone with their aggressive batting taking their team to 50+ runs inside the power play. They have a strong batting line-up with top-5 players experienced at big stages.

They have pace quartet with Jack Wildermuth, Xavier Bartlet, Mark Steketee, and Lewis Gregory who shared 5 wickets among themselves in the last match. Afghan spinner Mujeeb will lead the spin bowling and had figures of 4-0-26-2 in the last game.

Weather Conditions

Queensland has a bright and sunny weather on the match day with very less to no chances of rain. We expect to have a match with no interruptions from weather.

Venue Details

Queensland is a high scoring ground with batsmen enjoying the upper hand. Teams will score runs around 160-180 runs easily on this track. Pitch might slow down due to many matches being played here.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 3-1 win-loss record at this venue and we expect a new strip to be used in this match. Teams might opt to bat first if played on same pitch as the last match.  

BRH vs MLS Winning Prediction

Melbourne Stars have a superb batting lien up with the likes of Maxwell, Stoinis, Pooran, Fletcher, and Cartwright who are in good form and rhythm. Heat too has good players in top-5 but might struggle to match Stars top-5 in terms of T20 firepower. Brisbane Heat has a slightly stronger bowling attack with a variety of options and Stars lack a solid fifth bowler and which might be a big concern for them. But we expect Stars to win this match owing to their batting firepower.

MELBOURNE STARS WILL WIN THE MATCH
