Brisbane Heat (HEA) will be locking horns with defending champions Perth Scorchers (SCO) in Match 37 of the ongoing Big Bash League at the Gabba on January 11. The two franchises recently came face-to-face in which the Scorchers thrashed the Jimmy Pierson-led side and won the match by seven wickets. Thus, the Heat will be charged up to settle the score but will be a very difficult job, to say the least.

Even though Colin Munro and Josh Brown gave the team a decent start in the last match, the middle order failed to capitalize as none of them could make the most of their starts. Bowling too looked relatively weak as Scorchers chased it down with ease. Three of their six bowlers conceded more than 10 runs per over while two of them conceded more than 9. Thus, the team could never put any kind of pressure on the Scorchers as they lost the match with 21 balls remaining.
Overall, they have been pretty poor so far in the tournament. In eight matches so far, Heat registered only two wins and is seventh on the points table. Their rival on Wednesday, Scorchers are second on the table and with a win, they can topple Sydney Sixers and become the new league leaders.
Their batters have been terrific so far in the tournament as opener Cameron Bancroft (76*) and Aaron Hardie (57) played some brilliant cricket against Brisbane Heat in the last match. When it comes to bowlers, veteran Andrew Tye has been sensational alongside Jason Behrendorff. The dynamic duo have lit up the tournament and that is one of the reasons behind Scorcher’s success in the ongoing season.
Venue: The Gabba, Brisbane

The surface at the Gabba will help the batters set the tone of the match. The ball will come nicely on to the bat and thus, it can be a high-scoring affair. The team winning the toss should opt to bat first and anything above 200 will be a good score to defend.
Predicted Playing XIs for HEA vs SCO
Brisbane Heat (HEA):
Josh Brown, Colin Munro, Nathan McSweeney, Sam Billings, Jimmy Peirson(w/c), Max Bryant, Ross Whiteley, Michael Neser, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mitchell Swepson
Perth Scorchers (SCO):
Cameron Bancroft, Stephen Eskinazi, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis(w), Ashton Turner(c), Nick Hobson, Cooper Connolly, Matthew Kelly, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Lance Morris
Probable Best Performers from HEA vs SCO
Probable best batter: Josh Inglis
The wicket keeper-batter Josh Inglis has been sensational so far. In eight matches so far, the 27-year-old has scored 246 runs at a strike rate of 151.85. He has performed consistently and will be very key for the Scorchers at the business end of the tournament.
Probable best bowler: Andrew Tye
The veteran pacer picked up 16 wickets from eight matches so far in the tournament. With that, he is the joint second-leading wicket-taker of the tournament and if he manages to keep up with that, Tye can eventually help the Scorchers lift their fifth title in history.
