Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction BBL- Brisbane Heat v Perth Scorchers
Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat are the bottom two teams of the Big Bash League and would be desperate to win this match in order to climb up in the leaderboard.
Both teams are coming off three consecutive losses and are obviously not playing their best cricket. Brisbane Heat won the last match that the both sides played as they chased down a relatively low target of 136 with 10 balls to spare. The match was set up by figures of 2-10 from Mujib Ur Rahman.
After not being picked for the Australian Test XI, Matt Renshaw is now free to play for the Brisbane Heat. He will be slotted at number four with Brendon McCullum, Max Bryant and Chris Lynn already established as the team's top three.
While the top three have scored runs, they have not been very consistent. The bowling is also to blame for as apart from Mujib Ur Rahman and Josh Lalor occasionally, others have not been able to step up to the plate.
Perth Scorchers will not be able to avail the services of David Willey and Ashton Agar, both of whom have been ruled out of the entire tournament due to injury. Jhye Richardson is a part of the Australian Test team and will also not be available.
However, the team is not short of quality with Cameron Bancroft, Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Turner in the ranks. It has been a relatively good comeback for Bancroft after serving the nine-month ban as he has scored 200 runs from eight innings.
Among the bowlers, Andrew Tye has impressed the most and has 14 wickets now while Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Behrendorff have picked up nine each.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
Brisbane Heat- Brendon McCullum, Max Bryant, Chris Lynn, Matt Renshaw, Ben Cutting, Alex Ross, Jimmy Peirson, Jack Prestwidge, Josh Lalor, Mitchell Swepson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
