Time Is Running Out for Adelaide, as Brisbane Cling on to the Last Playoff Spot for Dear Life

We are experiencing an unprecedented phenomenon in the 2021/22 edition of the Big Basg League. The disparity in number of COVID-19 cases in the eight teams has led to a significant gulf in the strengths of the teams – something we are not accustomed to seeing in this competition.

Brisbane Heat are one such team who have been ravaged by the virus, but for now, they are holding on to the fifth position in the standings. After winning two of their first five matches, the 2012-13 champions have registered only solitary victory in their last five games, with the vast majority of their COVID-19 substitutes struggling to go toe-to-toe with the big boys of Australian cricket.

Adelaide Strikers have also been poor, but that is largely due to their own fault as they have failed to get going as a team. A victory over Hobart Hurricanes one week ago ended the Strikers’ streak of six consecutive losses, but all of that good work was undone when they suffered a 5-wicket defeat in their previous game against the Melbourne Stars.

Team News

Brisbane Heat are missing most of their first-team players to COVID-19, while overseas acquisition Fakhar Zaman is not available for this match owing to inter-state travel restrictions. The management has stated most of the players who returned a positive diagnosis for the virus are now wrapping up their isolation period and could be available as early as Wednesday, but we are still awaiting official confirmation. From what they currently have in their armoury, Brisbane could opt to make a batting switch replacing Jack Clayton with Bryce Street after the former’s poor show in the last match against Hobart Hurricanes.

Though they have not been as severely affected by the virus as Brisbane Heat, Adelaide Strikers have not come out unscathed either as their star batter Matt Renshaw has returned a positive diagnosis. Given that they still have a formidable batting unit, the Strikers could replace an out of form Harry Hunt with Liam Scott, while Daniel Worrall and Wes Agar could replace Harry Conway and Fawad Ahmed respectively.

Key Players

Peter Siddle: He turned 37 a couple of months back, but Peter Siddle is still causing some of Australia’s most talented batters a lot of problems with his precise and effective bowling. The Adelaide Strikers skipper is currently the leading wicket-taker of his team with 18 wickets to his name. Siddle has picked up at least one wicket in all of his last six appearances, which includes a sensational spell of 5/23 against Hobart Hurricanes.

Sam Heazlett: With Marnus Labuschagne fulfilling national commitments, Chris Lynn out with the virus and Tom Cooper being terribly out of form, Brisbane Heat have found a new leader for their batting contingent in Sam Heazlett. The 26-year-old is currently his team’s leading run-scorer with 246 runs in ten innings. Though the local lad is yet to score a half-century, he has crossed the 40-run mark on three occasions – against Adelaide Strikers, Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunder.
