THU vs HEA 17th Match Probable winners:
Brisbane Heat had Sam Billings to thank for getting their season up and running. They will need another big score from their top order or we expect Sydney Thudner to get an easy win. At the time of writing, Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat are two of four teams at the bottom of the table with two points on the board so far. In fact, due to their 15 all out at this ground, it is Thunder who have the worst Net-Run-Rate in the competition and are in eighth place. We are predicting a close contest with Sydney Thunder getting the victory. Considering the team combination, Sydney Thunder is expected to win this match.
