Brisbane Heat will host Sydney Sixers for the 25th game of the Big Bash League 2022 at The Gabba, Brisbane. The match is scheduled on the eve of the new year from 1:45 pm IST. Sydney Sixers are currently bringing their best in every game they are playing. They have won 4 games in a row. On the other hand, Brisbane Heat have just one win in the 5 games played this season.
Brisbane Heat played their final game against Sydney Thunder. Batting first, Sydney Thunder put a target of 183 runs to chase. James Bazely took 4 wickets from the Heat side. Opener Colin Munro scored 98 runs off 53 balls. But the wickets kept falling from the other end, and Heat lost the game by 11 runs. The only Heat victory that came this year was against the Adelaide Strikers by just 6 runs. The heat definitely needs to work on their batting order, or else it will be an easy victory for Sydney Sixers.
Sixers played back-to-back games against Melbourne Renegades on Wednesday and Friday. At home, they beat Renegades by 34 runs. Left-arm pacer Ben Dwarshuis took 4 for 17 after Sixers opener Josh Phillipe scored a half-century. At Geelong, Renegades set a target of 125 runs which Sixers chased with 6 wickets and 13 balls in hand.
Sixers and Heat met in Brisbane the last season. Sixers won the game by 27 runs, extending the unbeaten streak against the Heat to Three. The Sixers are currently in the second position in the points table with 8 points in 6 games. While Brisbane Heat are at the bottom with just 2 points in 5 games.
Brisbane Heat is struggling with the middle order. Except for skipper Jimmy Peirson, none of their players are performing in the middle order. Fortunately, opener Colin Munro is in form. The left-hander has scored 185 runs in 5 games at a strike rate of 133.09. Munro scored 98 runs against Sydney Thunder at a strike rate of 184.91 yet saw his team lose by 11 runs. Max Bryant should spend more time on the field with Munro to keep the knockout hopes alive.
Our choice for the best batter from the Brisbane Heat side will be Sam Billings. Though Billings has scored only 126 runs this season, the only game in which he scored maximum was won by Brisbane. The lack of all-rounders is also one reason the Heat cannot get the wins. James Bazley has 7 wickets with the ball, but a no-show from the bat has hampered Heat’s chances to win two crucial games.
Besides Bazely, Heat’s bowling unit depends on Michael Nesser and Mark Steketee. The duo has 7 wickets each at an economy of almost 8. No other bowler from the Heat’s camp has been able to put pressure on the opposition. Nesser will be the ideal choice for the best bowler.
Key Players: Colin Munro, Sam Billings, Michael Nesser.
Max Bryant, Colin Munro, Matt Renshaw, Sam Billings, Jimmy Peirson (c & wk), Ross Whiteley, Michael Neser, Xavier Bartlett, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mitchell Swepson

Sixers have turned the table in their favor after losing the season's first two games. And all credit goes to the team efforts rather than the individual performances. Openers Kurtis Patterson and Joshua Phillipe have been more consistent for the Sixers. The duo has 262 runs in 6 games opened so far. James Vince, at number three, is yet to live up to the expectations, but a 25+ score in the last three innings has clearly shown that the progress is in order. You can either go with Phillipe or Vince while choosing the best batter from the Sixers’ side.
Moises Henriques, Jordan Silk, and all-rounder Hayden Kerr will be the middle-order for Sydney Sixers. Silk has been the leading run-scorer for the Sixers, with 141 runs at a strike rate of 113.7. Hayden Kerr has 88 runs with the bat at a strike rate of 133.33. He has been effective with the ball and is leading the table with 9 wickets in 6 matches.
Ben Dwarshuis will lead the bowling attack for the sixers. Dwarshuis picked 4 against Renegades in the first game, followed by giving just 18 runs in the second. Since the Sixers started winning, not a single team has gone past 150 runs in the last 4 games.
Key Players: Joshua Phillipe, James Vince, Hayden Kerr.
Kurtis Patterson, Josh Philippe (wk), James Vince, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Todd Murphy

The weather will be partly cloudy. The temperature will range between 18 and 28°C. The wind will be flowing from the west at 10-25 kmh. The pitch is considered good for bowling in both innings. For pacers, it offers a high bounce and swing as the match progresses.
The 25th T20 will be held at The Gabba, Brisbane, on 1st January from 1:45 pm IST. The venue holds a capacity of 20000 spectators and has hosted 67 Tests, 78 ODIs, and 10 T20I so far.
In the 10 T20s played, the results favored the team defending the target 7 times. The average batting score of the team batting first is 166 - far better than that of the team batting second, the pitch behavior suggests the team winning the toss should bat first.
Sydney Sixers have won in the last 4 games after losing the first two. Sixers’ batters have contributed at every stage of the game after their bowlers do their jobs. No team has gone past 150 against the Sixers in the last 5 games. On the other hand, Brisbane Heat is not up to the speed. They have 4 losses in the last 5 games this season and against Sydney Sixers too.
We predict that Sydney Sixers will defeat Brisbane Heat.
