BBL 2021-22 has come to the last stages of league phase with just 4 matches remaining. And 4 out of 5 qualification spots has been taken and 2 teas are in contention for the last spot. Sydney Sixers are assured of qualification spot but will look to finish in the No.2 spot in the table which gives them the edge over the next teams. And they will also hope to get some much needed form and momentum ahead of the play-offs. Brisbane Heat are out of the tournament and will look to finish the season with a victory to end their losing streak.
Brisbane Heat scored 155/7 in their 20 overs in the last game. Max Bryant single handedly took the attack to the opposition scoring 81 runs off 56 balls with 7 fours and 4 sixes despite no big contribution at the other end. Jimmy Pierson played a quick fore cameo of 31 runs off 19 balls to finish the innings with a flourish.
Their bowling trio of Michael Neser, Mitchel Swepson, and Mathew Kuhnemann claimed 4 wickets between them and gave away just 69 runs in their combined 11 overs. But, mark Stekelle and James Bazley gave 78 runs off just 7.4 overs as the opposition completed the chase to win by 6 wickets.

Brisbane is expected to have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with 10% chances of precipitation. No rain interruptions are expected in this match.
Gabba is a good batting surface where the bowlers need to be on their best to restrict the batters. The ball will come onto the bat nicely with good bounce and carry. We expect the average scores to be around 160-180 runs on this pitch.
Teams batting first has 3-1 win-loss ratio at this venue and teams have faltered in chasing the huge target under pressure here. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.
Brisbane Heat are in a turmoil and they will look to put up a one last show before exiting the season. They also have a poor record in the Gabba losing all their 4 matches played so far. Sydney Sixers are having a good tournament and will consider their loss in the last match as an aberration and will look to seal the second spot with a win here. We expect Sydney Sixers to win this match.
