Australia T20 League Match Prediction: Brisbane Heat vs. Hobart Hurricanes

Brisbane Heat will look to extend their winning streak when they will go head to head against Hobart Hurricanes in the 29th match of the ongoing Australia T20 League on Thursday. The match will be played at Heat’s home ground, Brisbane Cricket Ground. The match is slated to begin at 1:40 PM IST. Both teams will be locking horns with each other for the second time in this season. Brisbane Heat crushed the Hurricane’s last time around by 31 runs. While Heat is standing on the fifth position, Hurricanes are rooted at Seventh spot.

Brisbane Heat after a shaky start in the tournament roared back with two back to back wins. They have now won three from their last four matches and are looking a balanced side. Heat’s batsmen have looked the most threatening in the tournament so far with the likes of Lynn and young sensation Tom Banton. Banton produced a breath-taking innings to help his side come out on top against the Sydney Thunder. Banton scored the second-fastest half-century (16 balls) in the Australia T20 League history which included five consecutive sixes in one over. The team again will be depending on the young Englishman for a flying start.

Although Hobart Hurricanes lost their previous clash with the Heat, they will be pretty confident coming into this match. Hurricanes edged Perth Scorchers in a close contest by 8 runs. D'Arcy Short was the star with the bat as he struck an unbeaten ton (103*off 70 balls) to produce a match winning total. It was their first win in their last three matches and the team will look to build on that performance against the strong Brisbane Heat.
