Two teams at rock bottom are almost on their way out of the tournament. With the Scorchers already on 16 points, and the top three having a minimum of 12, the Stars are likely to not go through even if they win their next set of games. Brisbane Heat too will have to hope for a lot to go right and may already have started thinking about next season.

STA vs HEA Key Players

Marnus Labuschagne

Marnus is known as an energetic character who clearly enjoys his time out in the field. As a batter though, he has not cracked T20 Cricket yet. He is a handy spinner, but his main job, batting still needs to be proven, and he will want to prove himself in the upcoming BBL Stint.

Luke Wood

Luke Wood has done well to make a mark on the tournament. He got an England cap earlier and is living in the moment now as he is enjoying his time as Trent Boult’s partner with the new-ball for the Melbourne Stars
