Match 7 Prediction and Preview
Match No 7: Hobart Hurricanes Vs Brisbane Heat
Date and Venue: 22nd Dec 2015, Hobart
Time: 13:40 IST
Brisbane Heat Team
Heat lost their first game to Renegades as they chased down a target of 180 runs relatively easily. In the batting department every batsman chipped in with some runs and reached 180 with the highest score being 35 runs. They probably lack discipline in the bowling department with only Samuel Badree being effective as he gave away just 20 runs in four overs he bowled.
Let us take a look at the squad for their match against Hobart:
S Badree, JA Burns, BCJ Cutting, AJ Doolan, AL Fekete, JS Floros, JR Hopes, JK Lalor, CA Lynn*, JJ Peirson†, NJ Reardon, MT Steketee
Hobart Hurricanes Team
Hurricanes made the worst possible start to their campaign. They were comprehensively beaten by Sydney Sixers by 95 runs. They were below par in every department and after being decent in the initial period of bowling they were carted around the park. Apart from Shaun Tait no one looked like taking a wicket.
Batting line up is deep for the Hurricanes but its imperative for them to play themselves in. Kumar Sangakkara and Tim Paine should take up this role and look to stabilize the innings in the initial part. Let us take a look at the 13-man squad announced for the match.
Squad: GJ Bailey, CJ Boyce, BR Dunk, TD Paine*†, SL Rainbird, JK Reed, CA Rose, DJG Sammy, KC Sangakkara, SW Tait, JW Wells
