Hurricanes Are Aiming to Make It Four Wins Out of Four as Heat’s Poor Run Continues
Hobart Hurricanes have never laid their hands on the Big Bash League trophy, and while they are not the best team of the ongoing edition either, Matthew Wade’s team has done enough to prove they are no pushovers.
The Hurricanes started their season on a characteristic bad note, losing three of their first four matches. However, they have made an incredible comeback by winning their next three matches – beating both Melbourne teams and Adelaide Strikers.
For every forward step that Brisbane Heat have taken this season, they have had to move two steps backward, as consistency has been the major issue for them. They are coming into this game on the back of two consecutive defeats, and while Jimmy Peirson’s boys are somehow holding on to a top-five place, Melbourne Stars are breathing right down their necks.
With almost all of their key batters out of form, Brisbane Heat management would have ideally preferred to alter their batting combination, but they are short of options. The leader of their batting contingent, Marnus Labuschagne is currently representing Australia in the ongoing Ashes, while English batter Tom Abell is also sidelined with a knee injury. Hence, head coach Wade Seccombe might be forced to be field an unchanged playing XI for this match.
On the other hand, despite winning their previous match against Melbourne Stars by a convincing 85-run margin, Hobart Hurricanes might consider making one change. English batter Harry Brook has scored only 20 runs in his five innings, averaging merely 4. He could make way for Caleb Jewell, who played an impressive knock of 42 runs against Sydney Sixers not very long ago.

Ben McDermott: Hobart Hurricanes’ trump card for this game, Ben McDermott will be up against the team that gave him his first opportunity in Big Bash League. He is currently the Hurricanes’ leading run-scorer with 353 runs from five innings, which has come at an incredible average of 88.25 and an even more astonishing strike rate of 170.53. McDermott is coming into this encounter after scoring two consecutive centuries against Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers.
James Bazley: With the likes of Chris Lynn and Mujeeb Ur Rahman failing to live up to the expectations, Brisbane Heat have found an unlikely hero this season in James Bazley. The 26-year-old is currently their leading wicket-taker with 11 wickets in seven matches, which includes a three-wicket haul against Melbourne Renegades. Besides that, he also has scored 52 runs.
