When: Tuesday 8 January at 7:15pm
Where: Spotless Stadium
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
The Thunder were straight-up embarrassed against the Stars on Saturday losing by eight-wickets in a dismal batting display.
Brisbane, on the other hand, finally claimed their first win of the season over the hapless Scorchers in Perth, but with a second straight road trip to Spotless Stadium ahead, the Heat still find themselves as underdogs.
Interestingly enough, the Heat have won three straight over the Thunder dating back to 2014. This is also the first time in their six meetings Brisbane has entered as the underdog.
With the Thunder sitting fifth in the competition at 3-3, give the importance of this match up, Sydney should rebound to keep their finals hopes alive.
