Brisbane’s season has crashed and burned following a nine-wicket loss to the Hurricanes earlier in the week. The same goes for the wooden spoon favourite Scorchers, who have won just three of their 11 matches this year.
It’s safe to say this one won’t be pretty to watch, and just like the odds indicate, good luck picking a winner. Normally home-field advantage counts for a lot when it comes to Brisbane, but with an 0-3 record at the Gabba this year, the Heat are far from a certainty.
In their last five meetings the Heat have won three, while the Scorchers’ last win in Brisbane came way back in 2017. With the odds all square, this shapes up as one last chance for the Heat to give their home fans something to celebrate.
