Sydney Thunder Versus Brisbane Heat Predictions
Brisbane Heat managed to finish the series with a strong win over Perth Scorchers in the last match after three consecutive defeats. On the other hand, Sydney Thunder is coming behind a huge loss at the hands of Melbourne Stars. Heat is definitely the upper hand in the case of head-to-head record because he has defeated Thunder six times out of seven in the tournament, in which the last three matches are directly involved. However, the latter has the domestic advantage on their part. Even though this season they have not performed very well in their distant game, but their morale will surely increase by winning all their matches till now. Apart from this, while Brisbane Heat is struggling on the batting front, Sydney Thunder has more players in his form, which is why we expect him to enter another domestic win.
