Australia T20 League Match Prediction: Sydney Thunder vs. Brisbane Heat

The 25th Match of the fun-filled Australia T20 League is slated to take place on 6 January. In this fixture, Sydney Thunder will lock horns with Brisbane Heat and the clash will set in motion at 1:40 PM at Sydney Showground Stadium. The Thunders have secured fourth spot on the points table, while the Heat is just one step down the ladder at fifth. This match is important for both the teams as their positions would be at stake. This face-off will decide where the two teams will stand at points table afterwards.

Sydney Thunder has earned total seven points with 3 victories and net run rate (NRR) of +0.331. For Sydney Thunders, skipper Callum Ferguson has been a heroic player the team can count on. He is the top-scorer in the team and is anticipated to lead his side from the front. Besides him, Alex Ross, Alex Hales and Khawaja will be steering the middle-order. To fortify their bowling unit, they have Daniel Sams, who is the second highest wicket-taker of the tournament.

On the other hand, Chris Lynn-led side has not been able to deliver their best, amassing only 4 points on the scoreboard out of 5 matches they have played so far. Struggling with a dismal form, Brisbane Heat would look to turn the table to their side. In order to do that, the team has its lethal weapon, Chris Lynn, in its arsenal. He is the highest run-getter for the Heat and can single-handedly turn the fortune. Mitchell Swepson, Josh Lalor and Ben Laughlin are among the best wicket-takers in the squad who have the potential to bring the game in their favour.
