Cricket Match Preview:

It has come a bit too late in the day for Brisbane Heat but the last two consecutive victories have kept them in the reckoning of the next round. However, their fate is not in their hands as plenty of other results need to go their way for them to qualify for the next round. Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, are still well and truly in control of their fate with two group cricket games to go.

Brisbane Heat have struggled in this format and the biggest reason has been the failure of their strongest suit, which is their batting. None of their top three has performed to the best of their ability and that is the reason why they are at their current position. In the last two cricket games, however, their batting has found some rhythm courtesy Matthew Renshaw, who has been brilliant.

Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, have won three cricket games out of the last five played. In their last cricket game against Perth Scorchers, they came up short as they failed to chase down the total of 182 runs set by them. Glenn Maxwell finally scored a half-century in this tournament but that did not prove to be enough for Stars.

Stars still need just one more win out of their remaining two cricket games to qualify for the next round. They would be fancying their chances against Brisbane Heat as they beat them in a close encounter just a few days ago. In that cricket game, Stars had set a modest total of 134 runs for Heat to win and Heat fell short by 5 runs. That cricket game could prove to be the difference between either of these sides qualifying to the next round.

Brisbane Heat would hope to learn from that cricket game. They would like to give a fine farewell to Brendon McCullum, who has been such a big part of their team in the last few years. The crowd would hope to see ‘bash brothers’ bash it for one final time in their home ground.

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Brisbane Heat have not been great at their home cricket ground. They managed to win their last cricket game played here against Perth Scorchers. Our prediction is of the score of around 160 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Melbourne Stars will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. They are coming into this game of cricket with better form than Brisbane Heat and they also have more at stake currently than Heat. Hence, our prediction is of a Melbourne Stars’ win.
