The pitch at the Gabba is excellent to bat on early on in the game. There is some grass on the surface, allowing the ball to skid and offer true pace. The batsmen will enjoy playing their shots. However, the pitch slows down as the match progresses and becomes two-paced. The spinners will get some grip and turn, making life difficult for the batsmen. A score of around 175 is a par score.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Brisbane Heat to win this match. They have been clinical in their performance so far, faring well in all departments of the game. On the other hand, the Perth Scorchers, while being a quality team, have struggled a bit with their spin attack, which could likely be an Achilles Heel for them. Nevertheless, we can expect a very close contest between the two teams.
