BBL: Brisbane Heat season still alive thanks to Renshaw’s heroics

Prior to the most recent match in the 2022–23 Big Bash, there are important matchups, analyses, form, team news, weather forecast, tickets, TV and streaming information, odds, predictions, and more.

Which match is it?

In the Eliminator of the 12th Big Bash in 2022–2023, Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat square off.

What time does it happen?

On Friday, January 27, the game is set to begin at 7:15 p.m. local time (8:15 a.m. GMT).

What venue is the game being held in?

The Sydney Showground will host the game in Sydney.

The form is with whom?

In the last group encounter against the Melbourne Stars, Sydney Thunder maintained composure to win by three wickets and advance to the playoffs in fourth position.

Thunder ended their 14 games with seven victories and seven defeats, giving them 14 points. Thunder have only won two of their last six games, despite the fact that they enter the game with a victory.

Brisbane Heat finished the main competition with six victories, seven defeats, and one no result, one point behind Thunder, who had 13 points.

The Thunder’s first-inning batters have often had trouble recently, failing to reach 135 in their last three innings. The Thunder’s most effective batsman, Matthew Gilkes, having scored 95 runs in his previous three games, including 74 off 55 balls against the Melbourne Renegades.

Heat have consistently been excellent with the ball, limiting the opposition to a run average of 7.5 per over over the last five innings. With the ball, Michael Neser is a threat because he has 11 wickets in his last four games.

What is the crucial matchup?

While Heat have excelled with the ball, Thunder’s batting issues have been made worse by David Warner’s poor form.

To quickly replace a faltering middle order, Heat will need to take early wickets of Warner and Matthew Gilkes. During the regular season, only Sean Abbott and Andrew Tye amassed more wickets than Neser’s 22, and Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, and James Bazley have all reached double figures.

What does the weather look like?

Light showers are expected throughout the day, although clouds are predicted to roll in in the late afternoon and evening. The temperature is likely to be around 25 degrees Celsius.

What’s new with the team?

Last time out, Thunder defeated Stars, and Jason Sangha made his injury comeback. This is a major win for Thunder. Given their recent troubles, Thunder might change their batting order, but Warner and Gilkes should start.

The Heat have started the same lineup for the last six games and are injury-free Brisbane Heat alive in BBl 12.

What do squads do?

Sydney Thunder: David Warner, Jason Sangha (c), Tanveer Sangha, Daniel Sams, Joel Davies, Brendan Doggett, Matthew Gilkes, Chris Green, Alex Hales, Baxter Holt, Alex Ross, Alex Rossouw, David Willey (withdrew), Fazalhaq Farooqi (replacing David Willey; contract ended on December 23), Usman Qadir, Gurinder Sandhu, Sam Whiteman, and Joel Davies.

What potential starting XIs are there?

David Warner, Jason Sangha, Oliver Davies, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green, Gurinder Sandhu, and Usman Qadir are Sydney Thunder players.

Usman Khawaja, Josh Brown, Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Sam Hain, Jimmy Peirson, Michael Neser, James Bazley, Matthew Kuhnemann, Spencer Johnson, and Mitchell Swepson are some of the Brisbane Heat’s other players.

What is the forecast?

If Thunder’s best batters attend, they should be able to dominate Heat.
