Brisbane Heat was poor with the bet here. Pfeffer’s 69 accounted for nearly half of the team runs. The explosive 21 from 7 balls from Will Prestwidge helped to build a better score but the 144/8 did not look enough with the Heats poor bowling in this year Big Bash.

The bowlers were again expensive and not clinical enough to do any damage as Hobert really cruised to victory. At 14/1 from 2.4 overs, Brisbane had a chance but the next wicket did not fall until 132/2 by which time the game was over. We are struggling to see where Brisbane Heat goes from here to get some respectable points on the board.

The Strikers slumped to yet another defeat although this was a closer game than they have been recently. Siddle’s 2/26 was respectable at least. Batting was again an issue with Jonathan Wells posting half of the total runs and lacking any support. They posted 139/9 which did look below par at the time.

The Strikers did take wickets but opener Joe Clarke lasted until the 18th over. By this point, the match was all but over.

Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers Match Prediction

This seems like a real dead rubber in the Big Bash with neither team likely to qualify. They are both in poor form with just 1 win in their last 5 matches. This is a close and difficult game to call the winner in.

Predicted result: Adelaide Strikers to win

We have gone with the Strikers as they have won more recently and they were okay against the Stars in the last match. Whilst the total they posted was lower they did a reasonable job of defending it with Siddle performing well.
