Whether reigning champions Sydney Sixers will become the first team to lift the Big Bash League trophy four times remains to be seen, but they have done a commendable job to tick the first checkbox, that is, making it to the playoffs.
Moises Henriques’ team is occupying second place in the league standings, having won eight of their 13 matches. The job, however, is only half-done from their perspective. The boys in pink are in a head-on battle with local rivals Sydney Thunder for the second place which will hand them a Qualifier slot, or in simpler terms, they will get two shots at securing a place in the final.
Brisbane Heat’s story is quite the opposite, as they are already out of the playoffs race, having won only three of their 13 matches. Partly due to the pandemic wreaking havoc in their camp and partly due to their own shortcomings, the champions of 2012-13 could never get their act together this season.
Brisbane Heat might not have a playoffs slot on the line when they will take the field at the Gabba, but they will still try to field a strong lineup, so as to avoid finishing in the last place. Nathan McSweeney could only score 6 runs in the last match and might make way for the experienced Tom Cooper, while James Bazley, who scored 9 runs in the previous match and was also expensive with the ball, could be replaced by Xavier Bartlett.
The Sydney Sixers management will be faced with a major selection dilemma ahead of this match, since the players who failed to turn up in the previous match against Adelaide Strikers – Moises Henriques, Daniel Christian, and Sean Abbott, have all been consistent performers for the team. The Sixers are unlikely to drop anyone from the trio for this crucial tie, but if Jordan Silk recovers from his injury in time, he is expected to replace Daniel Hughes.
Ben Duckett: Brisbane Heat have always been known for their power-packed batting unit, but their recent performances with the bat have been packed with nothing but disappointment. Ben Duckett is perhaps the only Brisbane batter who can afford to hold his head high after this competition, as he is his team’s highest run-scorer with 299 runs from 11 innings. The Englishman has scored three half-centuries, two of which came against Melbourne Stars, with the other coming against Adelaide Strikers.
Josh Philippe: There have never been questions on his talent, but having added aspects like maturity and temperament to his game, Josh Philippe is now looking like a perfect T20 batter, one that will attract interest from franchises all over the globe. He is leading the run-scoring charts for Sydney Sixers with 406 runs in 12 innings, which includes four half-centuries.
