Brisbane Heat take on Adelaide Strikers in the 13th match of the Big Bash League 2020 (BBL 2020) on Wednesday, at The Gabba in Brisbane.

Brisbane Heat have had a torrid start to BBL 2020, and sit at the bottom of the BBL points table, with 2 losses in 2 games. The side also hasn’t played a match in over a week and will look to set the record straight with a win against the Adelaide Strikers.

Chris Lynn’s side will count themselves unlucky after having lost their last league game against Sydney Thunder. Despite scoring 178 in the first innings, Sydney Thunder chased down the target with 4 wickets to spare. However, with star players like Chris Lynn and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in their ranks, Brisbane Heat will look to win their first match of the BBL fixture 2020 on Wednesday.

Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, have had a solid start to the season. They have 5 points from their first 3 games. The Strikers, however, come into this game on the back of a loss. They succumbed to the Sydney Sixers by 38 runs in their last fixture. The team was blown away by a Daniel Christian masterclass, with the all-rounder scoring 50 off 16 balls and then finishing with figures of 4-0-25-1.

The Adelaide Strikers will be without their captain Alex Carey and Harry Conway due to border restrictions in the region. In the absence of Alex Carey, Harry Nielsen will take the gloves, while Peter Siddle will lead the Adelaide Strikers against Brisbane Heat.
