Brisbane Heat will host the Perth Scorchers at the Gabba for the 48th match of BBL 2018-19. With both these teams already out of the tournament, this match doesn’t hold much significance when the whole dynamics of the points table are considered. But, it is an opportunity for one of the sides to salvage the lost pride.

Both the Heat and the Scorchers only registered three wins each in eleven games. However, Brisbane sits one point ahead of Perth as their game against Sydney Thunder yielded no result due to the failure of floodlights. When these sides met each other earlier in the season, the Heat defeated the Scorchers at the Optus Stadium.
