Another big win is in store for the Strikers when they face the Heat on Friday night in Brisbane.
It’s pretty rare to see a BBL team close to $1.60 but in this case it’s completely justified. This is a total mismatch.
The unbeaten Strikers look the team to beat this season while the Heat are out to $26 to win the title.
Matt Short and a resurgent Chris Lynn both look in awesome form with the willow, while Rashid Khan and young gun Henry Thornton are getting the job done with the rock.
The Heat have lost eight straight games and have lost to the Renegades twice to start the year, the same Renegades who have been easily the competition’s worst team over the last three years.
This could get ugly.
Matt Short leads the competition for runs after scores of 84, 9 and 65 to start the season.
He’s cleared 20 runs in 7 of his last 9 BBL games and should cash in again on a paltry Heat attack.
Henry Thornton is 4 clear at the top of the most wickets table after a brilliant start to the year.
The young quick has taken 11 wickets from 9.5 overs at an average of just 3.4 and an economy rate of 4.16.
Should do plenty of damage again with the new ball.
