Match Details

The 13th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 will be played between Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers at the Gabba in Brisbane.

The match will start at 1:45 PM IST (6:15 PM local). It will be live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. Live streaming will be available on Sony LIV.


The 13th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 will see the Brisbane Heat locking horns against the Adelaide Strikers on Wednesday. Both the teams are meeting each other for the first time this season and will be keen on earning crucial points from this match. The Heat, led by Chris Lynn, have lost both their matches so far and have only one point to their name thanks to Bash Boost rule.

Adelaide Strikers too are in a similar position somewhat. They have played three matches losing to Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Sixers. They pulled one back on the Hurricanes in the return fixture but the team will have to be consistent in their trade to win more matches. COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney has led to borders being closed which has led to Alex Carey and Harry Conway not being available for this match for Strikers.

Pitch Report

This is the first match of the season at The Gabba. Last season, the pitch here wasn’t at its best and a handful of low-scoring matches were witnessed. The surface will be fresh with this being the opening game of the season and the bowlers should be able to exploit extra bounce which is its true nature.
