Match Details:

The 21st match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2019-20 will be played between Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

The match starts at 01:40 PM IST (08:10 AM GMT) (7:10 PM Local). This match can be watched live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. Live streaming will be available on Sony LIV.

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The Hobart Hurricanes will host the struggling Brisbane Heat in the match 21 of the ongoing BBL season. Both the sides are coming into this encounter with a loss and it will be important for them to get back to the winning ways soon. While the hosts only have four points after as many matches, the Heat lost thrice already in four outings.

Rather one would say, the Ben McDermott-led side was unlucky against the Scorchers with the rain constantly proving to be a hindrance. The play was stopped thrice during their innings and the game was reduced to 11 overs per side. Even when they were bowling well, the rain came back and the Hurricanes lost by only four runs by DLS method. The Heat, on the other hand, got a proper hammering as they lost by 40 runs at the Carrara Oval.

Weather Condition/Report

It is expected to be cloudy for the whole day in Hobart on Friday. However, apart from the morning showers (whose probability is also less), the rain shouldn’t be a hindrance. The temperature will hover around 18-19 Degrees Celsius according to AccuWeather.

Pitch Report

Only one match has taken place so far at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart this season. The Hurricanes chased down 148 comfortably against the Renegades. However, the game went until the last over. A similar kind of surface is expected to be on offer for this match. The team winning the toss would look to field and then chase down the total later in the day.

Average first innings score: 147 (only match played at the venue this season)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 0

Injury and Availability News:

Both the sides have retained the same 13-man squad from the previous game.
