Australia T20 League Match Prediction: Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers

The 49th match of the ongoing Australia T20 League will see Brisbane Heat square off against Sydney Sixers on Thursday at Brisbane Cricket Ground in Brisbane. The match will kick-start at 1:40 PM IST. Brisbane Heat’s mediocre performance in the last two matches has dented their chances of making it into the playoffs. They are currently languishing on sixth place and will be desperate for a win. Sydney Sixers, at the same time, are sitting comfortably on the second spot with seven wins out of their 12 matches.

Brisbane Heat seems to have hit a slump in the Australia T20 League. They have now lost three out of their last five matches. In their previous match against Melbourne Renegades, Heat suffered a batting collapse while chasing down 165 runs. Apart from openers Sam Heazlett and Chris Lynn, no other batsman stayed in the middle for a long. Heat would be eager to bounce back and grab crucial points against Sydney Sixers to stay alive in the tournament.

Sydney Sixers, on the other hand, have performed decently this season. In their previous fixture against Melbourne Stars, skipper Moises Henriques decimated the Star’s bowling line up by smashing 92 runs off just 31 deliveries. In a rain hit encounter, Sixers posted a competitive total of 143 runs in 14 overs. In reply, Melbourne Stars could only manage to score 125 runs due to some tight knit bowling from the Sixers’ bowlers. Sixers will be aiming for the top spot by picking up a win against Heat.
