Brisbane Heat with two wins in two games are now all of a sudden strong contender for a playoff spot. They are in the middle of a really good turnaround but will understand that they cannot step down even a little with each game crucial for them. Stars are out of the tournament and only have their pride to play for over here.

The Weather at Brisbane is pretty good for the upcoming game.
A flat track at Brisbane is expected and batting second will be a better option.
Played- 17 | Brisbane Heat -10 | Melbourne Stars – 7 | No Result- 0 | Tie- 0
Usman Khawaja, Max Bryant, Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Jimmy Peirson, Sam Hain, Jack WIldermuth, Sam Heazlett, Michael Neser, Mitchell Swepson, Mark Steketee
Joe Clarke, Thomas Rogers, Hilton Cartwright, Beau Webster, James Seymour, Nick Larkin, Clint Hinchliffe, Nathan Coulter Nile, Luke Wood, Liam Hatcher, Adam Zampa
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 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
The Melbourne Stars have struggled to turn up all season. Heat though are finding their way at the right time and have a lot of momentum behind them over here.
