Topmost Picks for STR vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, 40th Match:
Top Picks – Brisbane Heat
- Usman Khawaja – The captain hit a 23-ball 28 in his first BBL appearance of the season against Perth Scorchers. He has been in exceptional international form and will play a naturally aggressive game.
- Matthew Kuhnemann – The slow left-arm spinner picked up one of the two wickets in the last match. Expect the batters to go after him but that will increase his chances of picking up dismissals.
Top Picks – Adelaide Strikers
- Henry Thornton – The tall pace bowler has seen his rhythm interrupted after being rested for a couple of games but he should be back to his best for this clash.
- Chris Lynn – The leading run scorer in the tournament hit only one run from four balls before being dismissed on Thursday and he will be determined to deliver a big score in this match.
