Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes will take a toll against Brisbane Heat in the 55th fixture of the BBL 2023 to be played on Wednesday at the Aurora Stadium in Launceston. The Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, have been inconsistent throughout the tournament and are placed seventh in the table with 10 points from 13 games. In their last game, The Hurricanes suffered a crucial 24-run defeat against Sydney Sixers in their last game. They were restricted to just 156/8 while chasing a 181-run target despite Zak Crawley's heroic knock of 49 off 45.

The Hurricanes have lost three matches on a trot, and will be in a must win situation to keep alive their playoff hopes. Zak Crawley, Mathew Wade, and Tim David made 40+ scores in the last 3 games while no batter made a fifty in the last few matches. Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, and D Arcy Short are very inconsistent in the last few matches. Their pacers Joel Paris, Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis, and Faheem Ashraf chipped in with a wicket each in the last game but failed to strangle effectively in the last game.

Brisbane Heat

Riding on a four-match winning streak, Brisbane Heat will enter Tuesday's fixture with the favorites tag. The Usman Khawaja-led side is presently seated at fourth position in the leaderboard with six wins from 13 games and requires just one more win to clinch the pivotal play-off Qualification tag. In their preceding game, they registered a nail biting 4 runs win against Melbourne Stars. Sam Hain became the Player of the Match for his 73-run knock in just 41 balls at the Gabba. Beside him, Jimmy Peirson added 57 while Mitchell Swepson took two wickets while bowling for the Heat.

Brisbane Heat will be eager to keep pace with the gained momentum. Their batters have been in fabulous form and the onus will be on Josh Brown and skipper Usman Khawaja to stockpile bulk of runs in the powerplay overs. While stars of the last game, Sam Hain and Jimmy Pierson will look to add crucial runs in the middle overs. On the bowling front, Mithcell Swepson, James Bazley and Mathew Kuhnemann will be the robust force in Heat’s line-up.

Topbets Prediction

Hobart Hurricanes are struggling for consistency in both batting and bowling department. They will hope to get winning momentum with a victory in this match. Brisbane Heat have a strong batting line-up with quality players till No.7 in the playing XI. Their bowlers have complimented them and they are in winning form. We expect Brisbane Heat to win this match.

Brisbane Heat will win this match.
