Brisbane Heat Vs Adelaide Striker Predictions
Adelaide striker will start as the current champion. He has done well against Brisbane Heat in recent times, in which three out of the four top-to-main meetings have won. In addition, he has won in each of the three matches played against Heat in Gabba, which will surely give him very confident in this game. However, due to the absence of Travis Head, his batting looks a bit thin and he will rely heavily on Alex Kerry, Jake Wetherd and Colin Ingram to score. On the other hand, Brisbane Heat is coming in this match completely and with the likes of Brendon McCullum and Chris Lynn, they have a strong batting line-up. They also have a household advantage in their favor and we expect them to start with victory.
