The second double header of the BBL 12 is upon us. It is Brisbane Heat who will be taking on Adelaide Strikers in the second match of December 23. 

The match will be taking place at the Gabba, Brisbane. It is a clash between the toppers and the last boys of the points table. While Strikers will try and maintain their winning momentum, Heat will look to get off the mark in the tournament with a win in this match. 

 Before the live action takes place, let us look at some important numbers and players and pick up tips for fantasy contests of the match.

Ground Stats

BBL Matches: 50

Matches won batting first: 22

Matches won batting second: 27

No Result: 1

Average First Innings Score: 164

Average Second Innings Score: 151

The Brisbane has favoured the team batting first over the years. So, the skipper winning the toos might look to have a bat first on the wicket. 

Three Must Picks for the Match

Matthew Short: Matthew Short has found great form in this edition. In three innings he has scored 158 runs with two half centuries. So, he is a sure pick for this match. 

Jimmy Peirson: Peirson has looked in good touch in the last two matches. He has two 40 plus scores under his belt coming into the match. So, the current form says that you cannot ignore Peirson for this match. 

Henry Thornton: Thornton has been the most dynamic bowler in the tournament so far. With 11 wickets from just 3 matches he is someone not to be ignored at all. Thornton's wicket taking capabilities will surely give some points during the match. 

Worth the Risk Picks

Michael Neser: He joined the BBL and took it by storm. 4 wickets in the last match with a hattrick. So, he is definitely in a great bowling form, although with Neser youy risk him for going for a few runs.

Rashid Khan: The Afghan superstar has not yet hit the right kind of form with the ball on this tournament. Rashid has 4 wicekts in 2 innings but 3 of them came in a single match. But with Rashid you get the dynamism of him batting lower down the order and hence is a risk you must take. 

Three Hot Picks for Captain or Vice Captain

  • Mathhew Short
  • Henry Thronton
  • Rashid Khan
