Key Player

Ben McDermott

Ben McDermott has been in sublime form in the ongoing edition of the BBL. The right-hander has notched 353 runs from five matches at an average of 88.25 and a strike rate of 170.53. The fact that he has scored two centuries and one fifty should give him a lot of confidence. The Heat bowlers need to be right on the money while bowling to him

Thomas Rogers

Thomas Rogers has performed exceptionally with the ball for the Hurricanes in the ongoing BBL. The fast bowler is currently the leading wicket-taker for his team and has given an account of his stupendous self. Rogers has picked up 12 wickets from six matches at an excellent economy rate of 7.63. The Heat batters need to be circumspect while facing him.

  • Jimmy Peirson’s side came very close to recording a famous victory over Sydney Sixers in their last match and had the champions 0-2 after 7 balls of their innings.
