Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The in-form Brisbane Heat host the Hobart Hurricanes in the match 29 of the ongoing BBL season. This is the second clash between the two sides with the Chris Lynn-led side coming up trumps in the previous face-off comfortably. In terms of the points and the matches played, both the teams are only separated on net run-rate.

The Heat are coming off a win over the Sydney Thunder, the game which was affected by rain. On the other hand, the Hurricanes too got the better of the Perth Scorchers in their erstwhile and it will be about carrying the momentum for both the teams. Matthew Wade is set to return for the Hurricanes though while Joe Burns has joined Brisbane ahead of this clash.

Weather Report/Conditions

It will be cloudy to start with in the morning on Thursday in Brisbane. However, the sun will come out later. But by the intermittent clouds will hover over The Gabba around 7 PM local time. Having said that, there is no chance of rain interrupting the action with the temperature expected to hover around 25-27 Degrees Celsius.

Matthew Wade and Caleb Jewell are the only batsmen from the Hurricanes who might make an attempt. With the ball, Qais Ahmad and Nathan Ellis are likely to be effective and can earn decent Fantasy points.
