BH vs SYT Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Dec 29, 2022

Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder have both had a rough start to BBL 12. While Heat has won just one out of four matches, Sydney Thunder has only done marginally better with two wins out of five matches. These bottom-of-the-table clashes become very important as it is quite likely that Heat and Thunder will be fighting for one of the last remaining playoff spots if that. 

This is the second consecutive match that Heat and Thunder will play against each other. The previous one was won by Sydney Thunder by a resounding 10 wickets.

BH vs SYT Team Previews

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat has not been able to build any sort of momentum this season. Either it's batting misfires or the bowling does not live up to expectations. It is not as if the players in the squad are poor, far from it! Colin Munro, Matthew Renshaw, Sam Billings, and Jimmy Peirson are all very decent batters with a history of success in the shortest format of the game. 

So far, only Peirson and Billings have scored over 100 runs, a total of one half-century has been scored by Brisbane Heat batters, and there is no one with a strike rate of over 140. These are damning numbers and show that Brisbane Heat is in a lot of trouble with its batting lineup. 

The bowling attack of Brisbane Heat has done a lot better. Mark Steketee, Michael Neser, and Matthew Kuhnemann have all bowled quite well. Is it going to be enough to stop an in-form Thunder team when they could not get a single wicket against them the last time around?

We are not very confident about it.

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder can be very proud of its achievements in the previous match against Brisbane Heat. Chris Green, Usman Qadir, and Daniel Sams all bowled very well. They were also very well supported by the other players in the setup. 

They kept Brisbane Heat to just 121 after which Gilkes and Hales aced the chase without any trouble. 

That is the kind of performance that gives a lot of confidence to the team and we think it will reflect in their performance in the upcoming contest as well. Sydney Thunder has also done a smart thing by making Chris Green the captain. He is a very smart cricketer with a CPL title under his belt and is leading Thunder well. 

With Rille Rossouw, Oliver Davies, and Alex Ross also in the lineup, we think Sydney Thunder is a stronger batting lineup. The bowling unit is also in good form and will fancy itself against a struggling Brisbane Heat batting unit.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain predicted for match day but there are some clouds around. We should be able to enjoy an uninterrupted match. As far as the pitch goes, the Carrara Oval is scheduled to host just one match this season. It is not a venue that is very often used for men's cricket but it does get a lot of women's matches. 

The pitch will be flat, a bit on the slower side, and made aid the spinners. The outfield is not the biggest and is quite fast. 

We think a score of around 160 should be quite competitive. 

BH vs SYT Betting Tips

Sydney Thunder is coming across Brisbane Heat at just the right time in BBL 12. Heat is in poor form and struggling for any kind of rhythm while Thunder just seems to be getting its act together. We think another win for Sydney Thunder is on the cards.

Bet on Sydney Thunder to win.
