After winning three matches on a trot, the Brisbane Heat franchise is all set to take on Melbourne Stars, who currently are at the bottom of the Big Bash League Points Table 2023. The Usman Khawaja-led side are currently in fifth and with a win, they can eventually topple Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunder to move to third on the table.

For the Stars, nothing has really gone in their favour this season. They have managed to win only three of their twelve games and are currently at the deep end of the sea. Nick Larkin was the hero with the bat in the last match but other batters need to step up in order to finish the season on a higher note. With the ball, Liam Hatcher and Adam Zampa clinched two wickets each and that kept Stars in the game but Matthew Renshaw hit a boundary in the final delivery of the game to take the match away from Stars’ hands.

With the ball, Michael Neser picked up three wickets in the previous match while Spencer Johnson, James Bazley and Renshaw picked up one each.
