Updated - Jan 20, 2021 8:05 pm
The 46th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2010-21 will be played between the Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.
This match is scheduled to start at 01:45 PM IST (08:15 AM GMT) (07:15 PM Local Time). It will be live on Sony Ten Network and can be streamed on Sony LIV.
Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat are both placed outside top 4 currently, and they can only blame their inconsistency for that. Not that either of them have played poor cricket in this competition, but they both have lacked the consistency needed to nail a place down in top 4.
The two teams have a lot of similarities – they have won 5 and lost 6 games, and in their last 4 games, they both have won 2 and lost 2 games. The third similarity is – both teams have significant names missing as they were in the national squad, but they have come back now and hence this sets up for a potential cracker of a contest.
