SYT vs BH Match Prediction & Analysis

We are down to the final three matches in the Big Bash League and Brisbane Heat have certainly surprised one and all with the kind of performances they have put in their recent matches. They've done well to get to this stage and will want to ride further ahead.

Brisbane Heat's next encounter is against Sydney Thunder who finished third on the points table and haven't featured in the playoffs yet. This is a knockout fixture and the winner will progress to the challenger match to meet Perth Scorchers. The match between Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder is to be played at Manuka Oval, Canberra, on 31st January 2021.

Team Previews

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder started their campaign in a fairytale manner but by the time the league stage ended, they looked to be running out of steam. Their dip in form coincided with Daniel Sams missing multiple matches. Eventually, they finished third on the points table after what was a roller coaster ride in the group stage. It took a dominant performance by Alex Hales for Sixers to seal a berth in the playoffs.

In this upcoming match as well, the biggest challenge for Heat would be to overcome Alex Hales. Hales has been in splendid form and would hold the key for Thunder to score a big total. Apart from Hales, they have the likes of Khawaja, Ferguson, and Ben Cutting in the middle-order. However, the absence of Daniel Sams still seems to be a big void that could be tough to fill for the Thunder going forward.

On paper, Thunder have a fantastic team. Their bowlers have done well especially with Tanveer Sangha and Brendan Doggett doing well. There are a couple of concerns that Thunder will be pondering upon. The form of Khawaja hasn't been particularly good and he is due for a big knock. Also, without Daniel Sams, they do not have someone who can slam the ball right from the word go except Ben Cutting. If the men in green can overcome those challenges, things could get incredibly difficult for Brisbane Heat.

Brisbane Heat

From the day they qualified for the playoffs, Brisbane Heat needed to win four matches to lift the trophy. They have already covered a quarter of the distance and another win here would make will surely put them in driving seat. While Brisbane Heat did not have a to remember as far as the earlier half of the league stage is concerned, they picked up at just when it mattered the most. Given how things have panned out for them, it would not be wrong to say that they appear to be peaking just at the right moment.

Brisbane Heat qualified for the playoffs on the last day of the league stage and haven't looked back since. They registered a massive win over Adelaide Strikers in their eliminator fixture and will be looking to produce a similar performance against Thunder as well. As it stands, Brisbane Heat appear to be on a roll with a three-match win streak.

Against the Strikers, Heat's bowlers played a major role as Michael Swepson and Marnus Labuschagne spun a web of spin to bamboozle the Strikers. They together picked up five wickets to wreck Strikers' batting order and that proved to be the turning point of the game. With the surface at Manuka Oval likely to be on a slower side as well, Brisbane Heat's spinners could have a massive role to play. Apart from their spinners, they have the likes of Xavier Bartlett, Mark Steketee, Morne Morkel, and Ben Laughlin available in their bowling lineup.

With the bat as well, Brisbane Heat are a potent side. Chris Lynn is known for his big hits and those exploits could come in handy at this venue. Marnus Labuschagne adds to the balance of the squad and with the likes of Joe Denly and Joe Burns available in the middle order, Brisbane Heat oozes experience. Having said that, the lack of someone who can tonk the bowlers around in the middle order is certainly a concern for them. They have Jimmy Peirson to do that job but over-reliance on him could prove costly. If they can overcome those challenges, Brisbane Heat will be a tough side to contend with.

SYT vs BH Betting Tips

The knockout fixtures are always followed closely and it is nothing different with this match as well. Both sides have extremely different styles of play and it would be interesting to see which team manages its plan better here. On paper, there is little to separate the two sides as both have their concerns and strengths alike. Sydney Thunder finished higher on the points table and would be confident for that reason. However, given the form two sides have been, Brisbane Heat seem to be in a rampaging mood with three back to back wins up their sleeve. Plus, they have an intimidating batting unit that can make any bowling attack look timid. For those reasons, we expect Brisbane Heat to emerge on top in this all-important fixture.
