Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers – Match 24
The Big Bash season so far has been full of misery for Brisbane Heat. It seems to find itself in close situations that it cannot close out. As a result, it has just one win in the BBL so far and is now going to be playing the leaders of the tournament, the Sydney Sixers. Sydney Sixers have been very good after a loss in their opening match. A unique strategy of loading their side with all-rounders seems to be paying off and is allowing them a lot of flexibility.
Can they continue their winning run or will Brisbane Heat strike back?
