Hobart Hurricanes v Brisbane Heat @ The Gabba

This is a rematch of Sunday nights clash at the Gabba where the Heat were able to chase down the 148 set by the Hurricanes to win their first game.

A 73 run partnership at the top of the order between Bryant and Heazlett set the Heat run chase up before a middle order collapse nearly saw them squander a seemingly unlosable game.

James Faulkner looks unlikely to play after he hobbled off with a hamstring injury in that game.  If Faulkner does in fact miss then that would be a huge loss for the Hurricanes bowling unit.  The bowling depth in the BBL is poor and good bowlers are hard to replace.

The Heat have their own injury woes of course.  Their best batter Chris Lynn will miss at least the next 4 games with a hamstring injury.

The Hobart Hurricanes can bounce back here.  With no Chris Lynn, who is the Heat’s main 6 hitter and plenty of power throughout the Hurricanes batting order I am recommending a bet on Hobart most match 6’s and to win the game.

Perth Scorchers v Adelaide Strikers @ Adelaide Oval

The Strikers have won three of their last four and are starting to build good momentum. They posted a healthy total of 165 against the Scorchers on Monday night after Phil Salt (51 off 31) got them off to a quick start.

The Scorchers raced to 1/35 off 3.1 overs in reply but yet another batting collapse saw them all out 94 in the 15th over.  Another disaster!

My patience is wearing thin with the Scorchers.  I have mentioned numerous times they have the squad to be competing for the title but they continue to let themselves down with the bat.  They have a word class batting order that simply isn’t firing.

It has got to the point now where I can’t back the Scorchers but I don’t want to be betting against them.   Therefor this is a no bet game.
