Updated - Jan 6, 2021 5:28 pm
The 32nd match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 season will be played between Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat at the Carrara Oval in Queensland.
This match will start at 3:50 PM IST (8:20 PM local time). It will be live on Sony Sports Network and live streaming is available on Sony LIV.
Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat, the two sides who will meet at Carrara Oval for the 32nd match of BBL 2020/21, are currently placed outside the top 4. The Stars are occupying the fifth position, having won 3 of their 7 games, while one game did not yield any result.
On the other hand, Brisbane Heat are sitting just behind them. They too have registered 3 wins, but have lost a game more than their opposition. While the standings might be worrying, what should comfort these two teams is that they both registered a win in their last game. Winning two on the trot, which both teams will aim for, will act as a spring in the steps.
