Game three of the BBL begins after some nail-biting action on the opening night. The upcoming game is the first double header of the tournament as well. Both sides have some good players, despite losing a set of Australian stars to national duty.

The Weather at Cairns is pretty good for the upcoming game.
A flat track at Cairns is expected and batting second will be a better option.
Colin Munro, Sam Heazlett, Jimmy Pierson, Sam Billings, Max Bryant, Matt Renshaw, Ross Whiteley, Jack Wildermuth, Matthew Kuhnemann, Xavier Barlett, Mark Steketee
Aaron Finch, Martin Guptill, Nic Maddinson, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Andre Russell, Will Sutherland, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Kane Richardson, Jack Prestwidge, Akeal Hossein
The Brisbane Team has very few superstars with players on national duty. Colin Munro therefore has a huge role as he looks to lift a team with some wonderful domestic talents.
Aaron Finch has decided to stay on in the T20 format but will have to do really well in this tournament. With his future uncertain, a good tournament here will help decide if he stays on till 2024 or not.
Brisbane Heat are in with a disadvantage given the difference in big match players. Renegades are full of star cricketers and walk in with favorites despite some players not being in the best of form.
