Brisbane Heat will be missing the services of West Indies leg-spinner Samuel Badree for the upcoming Big Bash League encounter against Perth Scorchers at WACA on Thursday.

The 35-year-old has been in top form this season with four wickets from as many games but what stands out is his economy rate of just 6.12 and now will not travel to WACA after sustaining a hamstring injury during the previous game against Sydney Sixers which his team lost by three wickets.

Meanwhile, Heat are also sweating on the fitness of their in-form batsman Chris Lynn, who injured his shoulder while attempting a catch in the boundary against Sixers. However, he has traveled with the squad to Perth.

The news was confirmed by Brisbane Heat physiotherapist Martin Love

"Samuel will have a scan as soon as possible and we will assess him for there, so he will not travel to Perth," said Love.

"We'll see how (Lynn) is feeling when we get to Perth but hopefully it settles down quickly."

Brisbane Heat squad for Perth Scorchers clash:

Brendon McCullum (c), Xavier Bartlett, Nick Buchanan, Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Jason Floros, Marnus Labuschagne, Chris Lynn, Jimmy Peirson, Nathan Reardon, Alex Ross, Mark Steketee, Mitch Swepson, Jack Wildermuth
