The 2019/2020 Big Bash season gets underway in Brisbane on Tuesday night and we are set for yet another season of excitement. We take a look at Tuesday’s (17/12/2019) BBL Big Bash 2019/2020 match which is between the Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder.

The signing of AB de Villiers saw the Brisbane Heat’s Big Bash odds slashed and it is fair to say the market has overreacted.
The South African is obviously a superstar and he will make a difference, but he will only join the squad in the second half of the season and there are still plenty of issues with this side.
There is one man that could dictate the Sydney Thunder’s success in this tournament and that man is Usman Khawaja.
Khawaja hasn’t played a full Big Bash competition since he led the Thunder to the title in 2015/2016, but with his time in the national team coming to a close, he will have the chance to dominate the competition once again.
Tip: Brisbane Heat $1.58
