 Weather & Pitch Report
⛅ Weather:
The weather looked good for the match day. There will be a slight cloud cover but there is no rain predicted which is a good news.
🏟️ Pitch:
Gabba is one of the fastest wickets in Australia. It has pace, bounce and the bowlers will definitely enjoy bowling here. However, once you get used to the pace and bounce of the pitch, there are plenty of run-scoring opportunities as well.

 Team NEWS: 

 SYDNEY Team News: 
Sydney Thunders have named an unchanged squad for their match against Brisbane Heat. Adam Milne was sidelined in the last match after an ankle injury. He’s being monitored and if he’s fit, he’ll make a comeback into the team.

 BRISBANE Team News: 
Chris Lyn has been named in the 19 man squad to prepare for their clash against Sydney Thunder. However, the call to include Chris Lynn in the playing XI will be taken just before the match. Chriss Lynn made a strong recovery after suffering from a low-grade hamstring injury at the start of the BBL 2020-21.

 THU Key Players: 

 Alex Hales:
Alex Hales is now beginning to get into a zone of his own. He backed his ruthless 71 against Melbourne Stars with a fiery 45 against Melbourne Renegades.The kind of form he’s in, he’ll be a big threat for Brisbane Heat. 

 Usman Khawaja:
Usman Khawaja too have been scintillating form in the last few games. Though he hasn’t got any massive scores in BBL 2020-21, he’s looked very comfortable and we feel that a big inning is just round the corner.

 Tanveer Sangha:
The spinner has been a real find for the Thunders. Most of the batsmen have struggled against him and we expect to create a lot trouble for the Brisbane Heat batsmen.

 HEA Key Players: 

 Max Bryant:
Max Bryant has got plenty of starts in the tournament but hasn’t converted them into big starts. In the last two games he’s looked very good and can be backed to come good in the next game. 

 Lewis Gregory:
Lewis Gregory had a decent all round game against Sydney Sixers. He’s played some crucial knocks for the Heats and has bowled well too. He’ll be player to watch out for in the next game.

 Mark Steketee:
Mark Steketee has emerged as the leader of Brisbane Heat team after some decent performance in the last few games. He picked up 4 wickets in the previous match against Sydney Sixers and can be backed to come good against Sydney Thunders as well.


 Team Forms: 

 THU Team Form: 
Sydney Thunders are flying high after comprehensively winning their last 5 games.

 HEA Team Form: 
Overall Brisbane Heat have been poor in the tournament with just two victories in their 6 games. However, we’ve seen a remarkable improvement in their performance in the last three games.
